Be better off with Kelly+Partners


Our Story



Having begun as a small group of passionate accountants in Australia, Kelly+Partners is dedicated to helping businesses like yours go somewhere greater, just as we have.

Founder and CEO Brett Kelly launched Kelly+Partners from a single Sydney office 14 years ago. Together, we traded our way through the GFC, the team expanding to become the national firm we are today.

Today, we’re a multi-award-winning financial services firm. With 15 locations and many accountants, we support over 8,000 small business owners, high-net-worth individuals and families to grow, protect and manage wealth, across generations.

Our close-knit team is driven to help you gain the control you need of your entire financial universe, to overcome any challenge, now and in the future.

Don’t just take our word for it. Hear more about the transformations to lives and businesses our clients have experienced here.
