Chris Cowlishaw is the James Bond of accounting. You can present him with a tangle of tax mysteries and a pile of paperwork, and he won’t turn a hair. He knows his stuff. He’s not scared of forms. He gets up early, delivers on time, and kept a poker face when we led him to the gates of hell: several years of tax returns. We are eternally grateful. May Lam (social policy consultant) and James Button (writer and editor)

Meeting Clint changed our business lives on many levels. Before Clint, taxation was a mess, now after going through accumulation and retirement phases with Clint, we are on top of it; company law was a mystery, now we operate several companies, a family trust and a super fund; Clint is instrumental in all our business and strategic planning.
Clint offers more than accounting services. He has our confidence and respect as an accounting professional. He is always friendly and helpful, giving sound advice. If unsure, Clint will firstly, seek advice from a colleague. He does not charge the earth and there are no timed calls; always contactable calling back promptly if you leave a message.
Before Clint, we tried many accounting firms large and small but none met our expectations so well. Therese and I recommend Aspire Business Consultants to all in our network, who are searching for sound professional business advice. Brenden Abraham – Tea Leaves (Aust)
