Hi, my name is Steve Howard and I’m the principal of The Howard Group.
I’m a CPA, Certified Xero Advisor, and a Registered Tax Agent—and I formed The Howard Group to help you succeed.
I’ve earned the confidence of name-brand companies, clients with multi-million-dollar revenues, and customers with self-managed superannuation plans and trusts.
I spent many years during and following my Bachelor of Business studies, with a well-respected public practice firm that shaped my approach to business and client service. This firm’s indelible commitment to formal processes, high quality, consistency, and reliability mirror my own—while my work with smaller, tax-focused firms has reinforced the importance of individuals and forming strong community ties.
I’m not just your accountant.
I’m in your sporting team, and I know your friends; I’m your advisor, but I’m also your mate. I know how hard it is to make money, to worry about making the right decisions, and how you can spend enormous amounts of time thinking of ways to stretch your hard-earned dollars. For businesses, solutions can mean better cost controls, formal processes and real-time reports that help you make smart decisions; for taxpayers, it means making sure that I leave no stone unturned to ensure your tax claims are legal, valid and maximised.
And that’s why I’m invested in your success.
Accounting and tax can be complicated, but I aim to make it easy for you. Once I know your situation, and I have your information, I want you to relax. I’ve got your back.
I am passionate about cricket and have played for local teams since my childhood. (Probably best not to get me started!). I also love travelling and in 2016, my business card travelled to Cuba 😉
