Abbott & Associates Pty Ltd was formed in 1984 when Steve Abbott made the courageous decision to set up his own business. This new firm included our Director of Bookkeeping, Jennie Appleford. Abbott Solutions grew rapidly, expanding their service provision to incorporate a wide range of services in addition to Tax, Accounting & Consulting services.
In 2010 Abbotts acquired John Gardner’s practice, followed by Rob Atherley’s practice in 2011. In 2014 we acquired the well-respected business Judge Constable. And in early 2015 we acquired the long standing business of Athans & Taylor. 2015 was also the year we diversified our service offering when we commenced a Property Management & Development Division into the business.
By July 2015, the majority of the Crowe Horwath Osborne Park office joined Athans & Taylor and Abbotts also acquired the Bookkeeping business known as AdminExpress.
Athans & Taylor
Athans & Taylor was established by John Athans in May of 1980 under the name of Athans & Meacock. In 1983 Len Taylor came on board and the firm evolved into Athans Meacock & Taylor. A year later, after a significant career Meacock resigned and the firm changed once again, to become Athans & Taylor.
As the firm grew in size and reputation Athans & Taylor decided to move in order to successfully cater to its clients’ needs. They relocated the firm to its current address at 17 Foley Street Balcatta in 1993.
In 2015, after 35 years in practice at Athans & Taylor, John and Len put a retirement plan in place.
Athans & Taylor has been proudly owned and operated by its three new Directors, Alan Thomas, Mark De Luca and Sean Henbury since then, and they look forward to this new and exciting chapter together.
The Judge Constable business was established by Kevin Judge & Rod Constable back on 1 May 1989. Beverley Winterton joined the Business as partner in 1995. In 1999 Rod Constable retired from the Business as Principal and later rejoined the business as employee in 2008.
Over the years the business provided both Tax & Accounting Services as well as Insolvency & Bankruptcy Services with over 30 staff members employed in the 1990’s at their 67 Burswood Road address. Kevin Judge & Beverley Winterton retired when the Practice was sold to Abbott Solutions in July 2014. In March 2016 the business was relocated to Abbott Solutions business premises.
