Colin PettittFounder & Registered Tax Agent

Colin is the sole director and registered tax agent at Claritax Accountants. He believes in the philosophy that we all have the potential to start and manage a successful business, not to make millions, but purely in order to grow as people by sharing our unique talents and abilities with our local community. Colin grew up in a family home where his parents were both involved in a family manufacturing business which meant many late nights and family sacrifices. As well as this accounting firm he is also co-director of a small franchise retail store in Sydney where he applies his insight to ensure the business cash flow and accounting records are accurate and useful to the business.

So you can see that he is uniquely placed to empathize with you, knowing exactly what goes into making a small business successful. The stress and burden it also places on the home family environment is also front and centre of his approach to working with local small businesses. Layered on top of this is a continuous twenty-five-year career working with individuals and small businesses to streamline processes, manage their tax compliance obligations, and create meaningful reports. Reports that can be used by small business owners to make decisions that build resilience and success into their businesses for the long term health and well-being of both the business and the family behind it.

Colin is a Registered Tax Agent with the Tax Practitioners Board, a Fellow Member of the Institute of Public Accounts and a Xero Certified Advisor.

When not doing all things tax and accounting you will often find Colin browsing in his favourite bookshop, watching the latest F1 races or out under the stars observing the infinite cosmos with one of his many telescopes.
