ABOUT MORE THAN TAX
Loyal, personable, proactive accountants dedicated to seeing your business succeed
Eugene discovered his knack for working with numbers in Year 11. Early in his accounting career, he also discovered his knack for helping clients achieve their financial and business goals.
In 1999, Eugene founded More Than Tax (MTT). After a decade of experience in public practice tax accountancy, Eugene's MTT mission was to integrate meticulous tax accounting and savvy business development advice.
Twenty years on, More Than Tax has more than fulfilled Eugene's vision for a clever, caring accounting practice adding lasting value to clients' livelihoods and lives.
MTT's success is due in no small part to Eugene's knack for knowing which of his very considerable skills to apply to get the best results for you and your business.
After thirty years of deep and varied accounting experience, Eugene's profound professional and personal knowledge gives you and him plenty of options for managing your tax and supporting your evolving company.
