"I first met Glenn and the team at Bates Cosgrave in 2010 when we became dissatisfied with a tier one accounting firm based in the Sydney CBD. As a small business experiencing rapid growth, Tiger Coffee Pty Ltd have found that the very commercial attitude of the Bates Cosgrave team has been extremely valuable.
We work with the team at Bates Cosgrave in both our financial reporting and proactive future financial strategies as we optimise our growth. Doing the simple things very-well seems to be the mantra; having our calls answered and returned promptly, reacting quickly to our unforeseen needs and providing future solutions to consider is critical to our business.
Given the depth and variety of experience the Partners and Bates Cosgrave possess, the team have assisted Tiger Coffee into what we consider is now a highly 'aware and focused' business, when it comes to our financial practices and overriding commercial strategy."
Ashley Meddlings, Tiger Coffee
"Before I depart Macquarie, I want to say thank you to Better Bookkeep It for looking after our accounts. Especially, Koko has done an outstanding job, ensuring that nothing has fallen through the cracks. Her diligence and attention to detail has made the process seamless. All work was turned around quickly and it was a pleasure to work with her."
Kim Masters, Chairman's Office, Central Executive, Macquarie Group Limited
"It is so refreshing to deal with people who are caring, helpful and keep their promises.

"Thank you for your help with getting our temporary residency needs sorted - your prompt help and efficiency with LAFHA will make a big difference for myself and my fiance"

"I chose to work with Bates Cosgrave when I first moved to Sydney in 2002 and needed assistance with the structure of a marketing agreement between my Australian company and an off shore company.
Bates Cosgrave provided tax advice on getting my Australian company paid for services offered to an off shore company. As the business grew, shareholders in the off shore company decided to move the whole company into Australia.
The tax implications of the re-structure were complex and Bates Cosgrave certainly saved us money in the long-term by delivering good advice on how best to proceed with registering a new company. As a small business operator, we have found the services of Bates Cosgrave to be invaluable, particularly in terms of the international tax expertise that they have been able to offer us."
- Sarah Capes, Managing Director, Globekey Systems Pty Ltd
"Actelion has experienced and enjoyed a great working relationship with Bates Cosgrave.

This includes a commendable holistic service on the recent employee share scheme changes. I would personally recommend Bates Cosgrave."
Allen Pickering, Finance Director, Actelion Pharmaceuticals Australia Pty Limited
"Bates Cosgrave came highly recommended before I decided to move back to Australia, as they have the capacity to understand complex issues beyond the Australian border. From my perspective, my choice of advisor must be technically strong, personal and professional, responsive, prudent, practical, transparent and trustworthy. I am pleased that Bates Cosgrave delivers all of these as part of my relationship with them."
Steve Bellotti, BlueSky Capital
