Paul Elliott
Principal, B Bus, CPA

Paul Elliott is the sole Principal of the firm having worked in the industry for over 20 years.  Paul is passionate about providing clients with advice and direction in an increasingly difficult financial environment.  His experience and knowledge gained from working with other leading accountants over the years has provided him with a unique approach to solving taxation and other financial issues that hold many business owners back.

Paul is a very hands-on Principal and believes that the best outcomes are achieved when clients are given the tools to operate their businesses more efficiently and effectively.  He sees Elliott Accounting as an advisory partner in his clients’ businesses and strives to see all clients grow and be successful.

Outside of work Paul does have a private life that is equally as rewarding.  Happily married with four children, there is plenty to keep him grounded while working in what can be a stressful occupation.

Other interests include being involved with various not for profit organisations, dreaming of a Richmond Premiership and indulging in driving sports cars.
