There is no secret where success comes from – Hard work makes things happen but along the way you always need good people to help you.
The team at Byfields are good people and they do a lot to help you, certainly for us since becoming our accountants back in 2007, they have been a major factor in our success. They introduced a discipline we had not experienced before, as well as providing practical and real things that helped us along the way, most importantly, in a manner we could understand. The level of communication is second to none and they understand as things grow and change so do our requirements.
I can offer the highest recommendation for Glenn and the team at Byfields, they have done a lot of hard work for us and are an extremely valuable member of our team.

Roger has been administering our self-managed super fund for eight years. He is such a personable, good-natured person that it makes working with him very enjoyable.
He answers queries very clearly and in a professional, competent manner. His knowledge is extensive and always seems to be mindful that time efficiency is important to clients. We are retired farmers and welcome his straight forward and honest manner.
John & Diana Humphrys
D & D Transport started in 1977.
We have been with Byfields since 2007 and moved to Byfields after seeing the benefits at companies I dealt with who recommended Byfields.
We have been impressed by the professional approach, the attention to detail, saving us thousands at times with timely advice and the personal manner they interact with us.
Good staff are the back bone of a business and a good accountant is paramount to keep that business going forward.
Brant and his team are an asset to our business and I recommend Byfields to any discerning business owner.
Agvise Management Consultants have had a business relationship with Byfields Business Advisors for than 16 years.
One of the common, impressive themes about Byfields in this time has been the calibre of staff they employ. They consistently attract people who have a strong understanding, interest and empathy on rural issues and what is required to run a successful business.
From a business point of view we have found them to consistently provide advice beyond basic compliance with the staff and specialist knowledge to help with complex business and tax issues.
I continue to be impressed with the level of communication that exist between Byfields and their clients regardless of the complexity of the issue.
Founder, Agvise Management Consultants
Most of us understand basic tax accounting. In our early years, as budding entrepreneurs, we are even tempted to “do it ourselves”. Then we realise the many benefits to be derived from working with an accounting consultancy such as Byfields from whom we have been taking counsel for some 30 years. The “Davey” Group have a close relationship with Byfields who underpin our Tax Planning, growth strategies and business analysis needs. Each time we take a step in our growth path, we get a lot of confidence from knowing that Byfields are there to ensure the structure is right and to help with the usual myriad of documents and start up requirements including compliance issues and other statutory demands.
Our experience with Byfields has been extremely beneficial. If a problem arises, the team at Byfields are always approachable, professional and provide well researched and timely solutions. These days, State and Commonwealth regulations come thick and fast. Our accountants seem to keep up with the changes which relate to our Group and ensure we do not lag behind in this ever challenging world of commerce. We have found Byfields easy to work with: they are available from 8am to accommodate clients who need to start work earlier. Over the years, we have appreciated the advice and guidance given in a prompt, simple but effective way. It is fantastic to know that your accountants are reliable and understand your needs. At “Davey”, we feel Byfields share our journey and vision of our business plan.
CEO Davey Real Estate
Dale Woodruff undertook our family farm succession plan with complete professionalism, fairness and authority.
Upon approaching Dale, we were without a formal succession plan. He created and negotiated all aspects of the process with thought and integrity, managing to problem solve and communicate to all parties involved to keep the process moving in a very short space of time and on budget.
Now that we are farming independently, we continue to enjoy excellent service from Dale and the team at Byfields in Narrogin.
We would have no hesitation in recommending Dale and his team to clients looking for friendly local service with uncompromising knowledge, competence and delivery.
Brett & Jodie Blechynden
We have recently changed to Byfields and have appreciated their pro-active approach and understanding of local farming issues. We found the Structure Review, when Byfields checked our asset ownership, trust deeds and estate planning, to be extremely valuable. They are also great with Agrimaster help!
Michael & Philippa Page
For whatever reason, there seems to be a tradition of lawyer and accountant engaging in a turf war when it comes to advising their clients on matters which require both legal and accounting advice.
With this in mind, it has been refreshing to find Byfields working so collaboratively with our office in a manner that achieves the best possible outcome for our mutual clients and in a cost effective manner.
Director, Pacer Legal
We rely on and value the comprehensive, efficient and readily available financial services provided by Craig and the Team at Byfields Merredin, to ensure a successful and essential partnership to our farming enterprise.
Romolo & Jane Patroni
In 1995 I was looking for an accounting group to assist me into retirement with my own self managed superannuation fund. I wanted a group committed to the benefits of personal financial planning and recognizing the taxation, investment control, asset flexibility and estate planning benefits afforded by self managed superannuation funds. But most importantly I wanted an accountant who had time to talk to me, was not a stop clock watcher, and would involve me in the decision making process. I found those accountants at Byfields and have been with them ever since.
My background was 34 years in the insurance industry where I had commenced as a “mailboy” and ended my career as Executive Chairman of one of Western Australia’s largest insurance companies. During those years I had extensive exposure to accountants with the so called big 5 accounting firms but when it came to my personal affairs I found in Byfields the same depth of knowledge delivered in a much preferred personal manner and without the high costs associated with high office towers in the Perth CBD. I congratulate Byfields in their strategic goals and commitment to their customers and have no hesitation in recommending their services to prospective customers.
Frank & Gaye Michell
We have been clients of Byfields since 1991. During this time our company has grown from a small 3 person operation to now employing over 45 people. The advice we have received from Byfields has been invaluable. They have helped us to significantly grow our business, helped with the implementation of GST, developed business plans and put strategies into place that create wealth and minimise tax.
They have benchmarked our businesses against other pharmacies and given advice as to how to improve our work practices and keep us always on the cutting edge of our industry. The accountants at Byfields are always available when you need them, returning phone calls and emails promptly and visiting us up here in the Kimberley region regularly.

The Saunders family have long been associated with the specialised services of Byfields business advisers.
With a change in our business structure in 2003, and the opportunity to expand, our active engagement with the diligent team of professional accountants and financiers who understand our rural business enterprise has continued to give us confidence to make positive farming business decisions; to expand further and at the same time set up our future retirement plan.
Ryan Naughton has been invaluable with his accounting knowledge, taxation planning strategies, timely advice and visits to the farm if required. With Ryan sowing the seed for us to set up a self-managed super fund in 2015, we thought through the process, met with Roger Thomson and Matthew Yates and decided to proceed given the timely benefits.
Ryan and the team at Byfields are always friendly, reliable and approachable and we would highly recommend their services.
