Alan is the owner and principal of Alan Boyd & Associates. He started his public practice journey way back in 1990 on a part time basis whilst working in a senior commercial management role in an Australian public company. He left the corporate world in 1995 and devoted his full attention to providing a simple, friendly and technically skilled accounting and taxation solution in Berwick.
Alan holds a Bachelor of Business majoring in Accounting as well as a number of Certificates and competencies. He is a Fellow Certified Practising Accountant and a Certified Financial Planner. His knowledge of accounting and taxation matters is extensive and his passion for providing cost effective solutions and first class technical advice are obvious.
As well as personal and business taxation solutions, Alan has a passion for self managed superannuation funds and helps many clients with running their funds. He prides the firm on being a one stop accounting and taxation shop for individuals, small businesses, investors and SMSF’s.
Alan has three adult children, Matt who is married to Skye and works in the IT industry, Rachael who is a travel consultant, and Ben who is also in the IT industry and has his own computer game development business with his partner Paulina.
Outside of the office Alan has a busy life. He is a CFA volunteer firefighter with over 40 years experience and is a former Captain of the Berwick Fire Brigade. He is also a keen amateur landscaper photographer and some of his works can be seen on the office walls. Alan also loves travel and if he’s not in the office or out fighting fires the chances are he could be hanging out of a helicopter photographing saltworks in Namibia or dodging killer waves capturing mini icebergs near the shores in Iceland.
