Our Team

Make your business much more valuable by working with an Accounting firm that does more than just "crunch" the numbers....

Our purpose is really quite simple; to help make your business more profitable, more valuable, and improve your lifestyle as a result.

We’re not your average Accountants.

Ofcourse we provide tax and compliance services just like all other Accountants, but our specialty is working with small business owners to help them build the business they really want to have and to fund the lifestyle they deserve.

Our stable team of long term experienced professionals take the time to get to know their clients. You are not just a number, and your GNS Accountant is not just another new graduate each year.

We all have a keen focus on using the latest technology to provide our customers with timely, efficient, reliable and value added services.

Let’s face it, no one like talking about death, but is going to happen sometime.

And while living well in to your 80’s or 90’s is not an unrealistic expectation, the reality is some of us won’t make it that far.

If you were not around, what impact and changes would that mean for your spouse, children, family and co-business owners.

If you were to die would your family be financially better off, worse off, or the same?

Life Insurance won’t bring you back, but it will provide a lump sum to clear a mortgage and other debts such as business loans or credit cards, cove the funeral costs and most importantly provide a remaining lump sum which can be invested to replace your lost income earning capacity
