  • We have been associated with Kennas for over thirty years.  Having been a family owned rural business, we initially mainly required advice relating to rural business accounting and taxation matters. When it came time to retire and hand over the business to our sons, Kennas assistance was invaluable in completing the succession transition seamlessly.  In retirement, with our super fund in place, we have confidence in Kennas Financial advice.  Throughout the years, Kennas team have always been professional, efficient and accessible with up to the minute information readily shared.

    / P & J Werner

  • Kennas has provided professional accounting and business management advice to our firm for over 40 years. During this time, the team at Kennas has guided us through a fivefold growth in our business. Kennas has an intimate understanding of our client base and the service we provide to our clients. Kennas also offer an excellent service in benchmarking our performance against other similar professional organisations. This has enabled our firm to identify areas of improvement and consolidate our strengths. Important to our firm’s managing partners and our staff is the Financial Planning advice provided by Kennas. This enables our team to invest wisely for their future, advice which is valued by our staff.

    / G & M Wills

  • Kennas has provided us with both accountancy and financial services for over 10 years now, guiding us through the establishment and growth of a medical practice and development of our own personal taxation and investment programs. In our minds the team at Kennas is second-to-none. We have always encountered the highest levels of professionalism and value the honest, trustworthy and reliable advice that is readily available. In our experience Kennas tailors its service to the needs of its customers. For us the team at Kennas has become a much appreciated and highly valued source of guidance, advice and support.

    / Ian and Zoe Etherington

  • I have used Kennas now for over 18 years for my business accounting and taxation needs. I have always found them to be a joy to deal with. Recently they were an integral part in assisting me with the successful sale of my company to an overseas buyer. They are a very professional company, and have always been available when I need them. I value their business advice very highly. I have always found their advice timely and understandable.

    / Geoff McKey

  • Kennas provide us with excellent service for our business accounting and taxation needs. We also receive candid and intelligent feedback on all aspects of our business and personal finances including potential business opportunities, setting budgets and managing cash flow. We feel Kennas genuinely want our business to succeed and trust them to assist us to maximise our opportunities and achieve our financial goals.
