Better off for you, your clients and your firm


Building an accounting practice, growing it, and managing it from the beginning to the end of a career takes a huge personal investment of time, energy and sacrifice. We understand more than anyone how challenging it can be to achieve balance between professional success and personal fulfilment.

Wanting to do right by your clients and your team often means juggling the responsibilities of being an accountant, marketer, salesperson, business manager, human resources managers, IT technician, and more, all at the same time. Whether you’re trying to create a legacy or grow your firm, everyone needs a support system. Kelly+Partners could be yours.

Whether you’ve got an accounting firm for sale or are managing the succession for your accounting practice, we're here to talk. Find out what you need to know if you're putting up your accounting firm for sale and chat to us today.


Since 2006, we have partnered with over 15 businesses using our proprietary Partner-Owner-DriverTM model. Through this model, we have helped 20 of our partners to create better systems for their people, their clients and their firm, while retaining their independence to operate the business day to day.

Today, Kelly+Partners is a network of 24 operating businesses across new South Wales and Victoria, working with over 7,500 SME clients in a diverse range of industries.
