In terms of managing our SMSF over the last 30 years, we have one main regret, and that is: TMA Accountants have only been on our case for the last 8 years.
We have much to thank Tim and his staff for the their thoughtful, candid, and much valued expertise in the annual, mandated audit, which seems to become more complex and regulated as each year passes by.
We hope to engage Tim, and his very, professional colleagues, for many years to come.”

I have been a client of TMA for over 20 years and Tim has helped my Business to expand and grow over that time with expert advice , regular updates of taxation / super changes and is always available to answer any questions and explain them in a friendly easy to understand manner.”
Tim Millward has been looking after our financial affairs since we started our company in 1996 on the Gold Coast. All our taxation returns and self managed superannuation accounts have been handled with the utmost professionalism but still with the personal touch that a local firm can offer. We would have no problem recommending TMA Accountants to look after your business or personal needs.”
Tim and the TMA Accountants crew have provided us with many years of brilliant professional and personal service. Advice and service received is always provided is a very timely, precise and easy to understand manner …. Thanks”

I’m writing to thank you and your staff for the help and advice that you have given to us recently with regard to financial discussions and restructuring of both our companies and trusts.
Your understanding of our needs the time and patience taken to thoroughly explain the best structure for us has been tremendously helpful and given us so much confidence in our discussions with you.
I feel we are now on the path to a well structured retirement and once again thank you.”

TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN
I FIRST MET TIM MILLWARD OF MILLWARD & CO. IN LATE 1993 WHEN I MOVED TO THE GOLD COAST FROM SYDNEY. I WAS IN THE PROCESS OF ESTABLISHING A BRAND NEW COMPANY HERE ON THE COAST AS THE AUSTRALIAN AGENT FOR A LARGE JAPANESE MANUFACTURER AND EXPORTER OF PNEUMATIC TOOLS. AT THAT TIME I HAD A SILENT FINANCIAL PARTNER WHO LIVED IN SINGAPORE AND OWNED 75% OF THIS NEW BUSINESS.
TIM WAS EXTREMELY HELPFUL TO OUR LITTLE COMPANY, NOT ONLY DURING OUR EARLY FORMATION DAYS BUT ALSO AS WE STRIVED TO BECOME MORE ESTABLISHED, AND TO MY PERSONAL DELIGHT AND DECIDELY TO OUR BUSINESS ADVANTAGE, OUR RELATIONSHIP CONTINUED TO STRENGTHEN AND GROW OVER THE NEXT TWENTY YEARS.
DURING THAT PERIOD WITH THE HELP OF A STRONG TEAM OF EXCELLENT PEOPLE WE GREW THE BUSINESS INTO A MULTI-MILLION DOLLAR OPERATION AND I ALSO MANAGED TO BUY OUT MY PARTNER’S SHARES. UNFORTUNATELY THREE YEARS AGO, AFTER SOME VERY SERIOUS HEART SURGERY I WAS FORCED TO SELL UP AND WITHDRAW FROM THE BUSINESS INTO RETIREMENT.
OVER THE YEARS I GUESS WE ENCOUNTERED MOST OF THE VARIOUS FINANCIAL AND TAXATION PROBLEMS THAT YOU CAN EXPECT OVER THE LIFE OF ANY BUSINESS. TIM’S KNOWLEDGE, GUIDANCE AND ASSISTANCE PROVED INVALUABLE TO MY COMPANY AND I CAN TRUTHFULLY SAY THAT I HAVE THE UTMOST RESPECT FOR HIS EXPERIENCE AND ABILITIES. EVEN THOUGH I AM NOW RETIRED, I CONTINUE TO SEEK HIS ADVICE AND STILL COUNT HIM AS A PERSONAL FRIEND.
I HOPE THAT YOU AND YOUR BUSINESS WILL ALSO GAIN HIM AND HIS COMPANY AS A FRIEND…… BECAUSE IN THE WORLD OF BUSINESS TRUE FRIEND’S ARE FEW…….. AND VERY FAR BETWEEN!”
