Client testimonials from over 15 years of quality, professional service!

Client Testimonials:

“As a small business owner it is imperative I have complete trust in advice provided to me by my accountant … five stars is not a sufficient google rating for this fantastic firm.

I am not sure there is an accounting firm in the marketplace that comes close to the Aintree Group, their knowledge and service are such that many companies could benefit from trying to replicate it.

Aintree Group have the most wonderful staff. I could not recommend them more highly.

David Barbey

Lorena Thomas has been providing bookkeeping services to Creative Music for Schools through Aintree Group for many years.

Her service has always been thoughtful, thorough and efficient but 2020 has seen her level of service exceed our expectations.   

Lorena has been pivotal in helping us navigate the protocols put in place due to COVID-19 and made a challenging year far less stressful than it might have been. 

We look forward to another great year with Lorena’s help in 2021.

Glenn Davey

“All the praise I could write about Aintree would still not be enough for me to say how truly wonderful this business has been.

Aintree Group approached my company (Salty Theatre) in 2020 wanting to help Artists and provide their services and knowledge pro-bono….it was a literal GODSEND.

In the short time Aintree has been on board with Salty Theatre they have transitioned us from a partnership into a company and have guided us every step of the way as we work to achieve our business goals.

They are efficient, intelligent, empathic and listen to their clients. 10 out of 10, I recommend them to everyone.”

Sarahlouise Younger

“I’m very grateful for the amazing support I had from the Aintree Group accountants in dealing with the complexities of applying for the JobKeeper stimulus.

They were all over it and were so helpful!

Kristy Griffin

We have worked with Aintree Group for approximately 5 years now with Lorena assisting us with all bookkeeping services over that time. We have always found Lorena to be extremely professional with a high level of attention to detail and attending to any queries promptly and efficiently.

I would not hesitate to recommend Aintree Group and their bookkeeping services to other business owners.

James Stephan

I highly recommend Aintree Group if you are serious about getting the best possible financial outcome.

Shane and his team are knowledgeable, approachable and most importantly, proactive. I’ve known them over 12 years and they have only gotten better.

It is possible to love your accountant!”

Jules Pidgeon

We recently merged our practice and Aintree Group provided sensible and professional advice throughout the process.

We also work closely with Sue from the Bookkeeping department and have found her to have an exceptional understanding of our industry and our ongoing requirements, which has been a huge benefit to our business. Sue has an excellent work ethic, is diligent, professional and a pleasure to work with.

We highly recommend Aintree Group and their Bookkeeping services.

Anthony Bourke

“I cannot stress enough what a difference it has made to my business to move my accounting to Aintree Group.

As a business owner it is essential that I receive sound advice, on-time reporting and complete compliance with ATO rulings. I rely on Aintree Group to provide all those things, but they also do so much more for my business.

A good part of my dramatic business growth can be attributed to the support and advice I receive from Aintree Group. 

Aintree Group is the sort of proactive, business-focused, entrepreneurial firm that I need working with me in order to create the sort of business I want.

I would sincerely recommend any business that is serious about achieving growth and profitability to talk to Aintree Group.

Angela Den Hollander

“Aintree Group are an accounting firm like no other, with personalities that make finance fun. Whilst they are brilliant with figures, asset protection and business structures, they also understand there is more to business than cost-cutting, balance sheets and the bottom line. I know my business is in good hands, yours should be too!”

Brad Drury

“Over the last 15 years, I have had the opportunity to work with Aintree Group as our accountants and financial advisors. They have partnered with our company and business owners and have added significant value to our businesses.

Shane McKenna has taken the time to understand our company operations and objectives and share his business experience, as well as assisting the business owners in matters of personal finance and taxation management.

Moreover, whenever we deal with Aintree Group staff, the service is always attentive, accurate and personable, reflecting strong leadership and teamwork.

Aintree Group have been a significant contributor to our success.

Greg Dick

“My wife Chrissi and I have enjoyed a professional relationship with Shane and Andrea McKenna since the inception of Aintree Group.

We have benefited greatly from the professional advice, care and wisdom, across the many vicissitudes of our business and personal financial lives.

Shane is available at all times to us, and constantly displays a keen knowledge and interest in our affairs.

We very much look forward to continuing the relationship, and friendship, in the future.”

Paul Hayward

“Thank you to Shane and the Aintree Group team for your guidance in our financial matters over the past five years. You are always only a phone call or email away.

You have supported me with advice in taxation, superannuation, asset protection and corporate compliance.

The most important advice, however, has been around how to structure new ventures.

You are always ethical in your dealings and think about my interest in the longer term

Dale Corrigan

“Aintree Group is a young and dynamic accounting company. I took the risk and followed the principals of Aintree Group as they left a long-established mid-sized accounting partnership … and I could not be happier.

Over the years I have found them to be proactive and progressive while still maintaining a steadying conservatism that lets me sleep well at night. They have understood my company and individual needs, and I am happy to say that I expect Shane and the crew to look after my family interests long, long into the future.

When I think of Aintree Group the words “Trusted Advisor” come to mind. There is little I do in business where they would not be consulted as to the best way to tackle new initiatives.”

Bill Butcher

“Our current experience at Aintree Group has been exceptional.

The transition from our past accounting firm to Aintree Group was smooth and painless, with Shane taking control of the communication process between our previous accountants, ensuring nothing fell through the gaps.

We have found Shane to be proactive and genuinely interested in our business and its performance.

We are now looking into our personal finances to ensure we are appropriately positioned to both protect and grow our current financial position.

Aintree Group are a critical part of my advisory team and I’m very glad to have them on board!”

Gene Alessi

“After my relationship breakdown and lots of other related trauma Aintree Group helped me sort my money out. They were so efficient and sensitive and got me back on track financially, which was what I needed most at a difficult time.”
