We have numerous mutual farming clients with Thorntons and find them to be exceptional accountants and advisers. They know their ‘stuff’, communicate exceptionally well, deliver on time and work hard to provide solutions for clients that take into account not just the best short term outcomes but those that better position the business for the future.

Troy came highly recommended when we were looking around for an accountant who wanted to be a ‘partner’ in our business rather than just a compliance service provider.  We also needed assistance navigating farm succession.  Troy has been a pleasure to deal with and any team member we have worked with throughout Thorntons has been exceptional – upbeat, knowledgeable and responsive.  Troy is accessible, takes a genuine interest in his clients and is only too happy to get out on farm.  He is intuitive, patient, and able to quickly get to the core of what humans need during challenging conversations - keeping things moving forward. Troy’s integrity and experience in negotiating succession is evident from introduction and we have really appreciated the next level of organisation Thorntons bring!  Wish we had changed sooner!

We have been with Thorntons since 2004. They have uncompromisingly provided our farm with advice above and beyond accounting services. The way they provide us with advice makes us know they care about our success.  They update us with the latest legislative changes that may benefit our operations and communicate it to us in our lingo.  We find we can call Thorntons anytime and all of the staff are able to help. Troy Anderson has been the expert behind our succession planning with fairness and authority he has facilitated our move forward and assisted us to be our best. Trusting Thorntons with our business gives us more time to focus on operations knowing they are always giving us the best advice.

We recently made some changes in our life, moving from broad acre farming in the Wheat Belt to owning an Irrigation business in the South West.  In doing so, we researched for a new accountant who understood broad acre farming, small business as well as assisting us with sound financial advice for our future.  Thornton’s were recommended to us by several friends.  We are really happy with how accessible the team are at Thornton’s, their level of knowledge and continuous communication.
Tom & Felicity Pollard, Thinkwater, Dunsborough WA

Perth Anaesthetic Group has worked with Thorntons Accountants and Business Advisors since 1987. I have personally worked alongside Abha and the team for the last 8 years, within this time I have found their services and professionalism to be exceptional. Company financials are always completed as per the scheduled date and professionally presented. In recent times with Covid, being a small business we have needed help with Jobkeeper and eligibility for Stimulus packages, I have found Abha and the team have gone above and beyond to help and guide us to ensure we have the most up to date information to determine eligibility. I am reassured having Thorntons as our Accountants/Business Advisers and look forward to continuing working with Abha and the team.

Our company has found Marie and the team at Thorntons to be extremely helpful in their approach to our business. They are always ready with a reply to our emails or phone calls. Nothing is too much trouble for Marie and the team, they go above and beyond to help us with our taxation. I would recommend them anytime.

Our business relationship with Thornton's goes back many years, in fact we may well be their longest running client, having been with them for over 40 years. We have come along way from humble beginnings as a bricklaying contractor to where we are today as an established leader in the field of commercial heritage restoration and sustainable building design in multi-unit residential developments, however, the level of respect, service and courtesy has admirably remained unwavering over that time. Thornton's have constantly provided service of the very highest level, are responsive to our needs and are progressive in their offerings without ever being pushy. Importantly, the people we need to speak to are always available when we need assistance or advice on a range of matters and deliver when they say will. They are one of our most trusted partners in business. Importantly, the relationship while professional, is always conducted in a friendly and open manner. We would recommend Thornton's in the highest possible terms to any potential clients.
