What Clients Say

Evan has certainly been good for our business and good for us. Our previous accountant was only involved in doing our returns. Evan actually got involved in running of the business and made a definite improvement in the bottom line, always having our business at heart.

When it came time to sell our pharmacies, instead of selling via traditional pharmacy wholesalers, Evan suggested a different approach which resulted in a sale which was a substantial amount higher than we were expecting.

Be open minded and consider the advice that Evan gives. Some of the things he may suggest come out of left field but he definitely has a good reason for making the suggestion and the results of these decisions have been worth it.

… prepared to get out of the box and take risks

By nature, accountants are super conservative and that’s what they’re trained to be because they’re dealing with tax and all about compliance. What I really like about Evan is that he is prepared to get out of the box and take risks, and that’s where I like to operate.

Evan identified where we need to focus and where we were bleeding money. Each month he gave us a list to work through. We looked for the low hanging fruit firstly – the things we could fix and re-engineer that would give us the biggest bang for our buck.

Before working with Evan, what we were seeing was that every change in the business had a 6 to 8 months lead time before we saw an impact on the balance sheet – good or bad.

Working with Evan has enabled us to get a lot smarter. The timeline got shorter – 3 months, then 2 months, then a month. We could quickly see whether it was the right direction or not. We don’t go down a road too far before we find out whether something is working or not.

We have seen a definite improvement across the board thanks to our involvement with Evan. I’d highly recommend him to anyone who wants to achieve a massive difference in their business.

Increased our bottom line by 10% during a severe industry downturn

With the sudden downturn in the market we had to restructure and change the way we did a few things to stay viable.

Evan enabled us to identify early where the market was heading, what cash flow issues that could bring up, and what we needed to change. We are able to implement strategies to ride out the downturn and stay ahead of the curve.

Evan also helped to motivate and keep me focused on where we needed to go.

As a result, we’re still here when many others have folded. We are still a profitable business with profits up by 10% and we’re looking to expand again this year despite the market downturn.

Evan and his team have supported us from the start of our business journey and provided excellent tax planning and financial advice as well as business mentoring. He helped us build our business from ground up to where it has been very successful and solid company within our region.

Evan is critical to the ongoing growth of our companies.

Our involvement with Evan has allowed me the space and time to get our new expansion opportunities off the ground. With Evan working with our GM, it gives me the peace of mind knowing that the company can be run efficiently while I am away.

The positive improvements in our business have been dramatic across all areas. I can also see the company is changing around to be business alert.

He is really good at what he does and SO passionate about this business. If he wasn’t passionate he wouldn’t care if I had the right or wrong staff but he does care so much so that he’d give us the shirt off his back.

He is also SO passionate about helping us achieve our net profit goal that he also sets his own KPIs to make the business run.

Top Echelon of Accountants

I’ve known Evan for 15 years. What makes Evan stand out is his ability to be practical and give good commercial advice. Other accountants just do the number crunching and are reactive. Evan is proactive. He helps clients solve problems and improve the ways do things. That puts him in the top echelon of accountants.

If you want someone who will get a good understanding of your business and do more than just what you ask him to do, and come to you with ideas and suggestions, Evan is for you.

Evan is a very personable guy and good to work with.

Very few implement and execute and get the job done as Evan Bulmer

I’ve met tens of thousands of accountants in my career and very few implement and execute and get the job done as Evan Bulmer. He is a business development machine who always does what he says he’s going to do

… good job done and he will add value to your business

I’ve known Evan since 1996. I think he is very straight forward and honest and his appraisal of people’s situations is objective. He has a good feel for business operations and building a business to increase its value.

There are thousands of Accountants about who keep a set of accounts, do your BAS and do your tax return, but accountants who can give good business advice are somewhat few. A really good Accountant who can give you valuable advice to grow your business is a very valuable asset.

From my experience, if you’re considering utilising Evan’s services you will get a very good job done and he will add value to your business.
