Dave Hector Accounting Group was formed
in May 2002 and continued the former practice operated by Dave Powell before he
sadly died in March 2002. Dave Hector had been working at Dave Powell's practice
and decided to purchase it because he wanted the challenge of branching out on his
own and to secure the jobs of the existing staff.
The practice offers GST and taxation services, plus a full range of accounting services
for businesses, partnerships and individuals, including payroll services and business
Dave's guiding principle is to offer his clients a
"value for money"
service – a high standard of work, a friendly and personal
approach and fees kept to a level which are fair to both parties.
