About Gary

My Background

From my first job in the mail room of a large federal government department way back in 1976 to my last job as the Executive Officer of a not-for-profit organisation in 2018, I have worked in a variety of administration and financial positions in the public, private and not-for profit sector.

Following a business merger with a much larger organisation, my last position as an Executive Officer was made redundant.

Having been in full-time employment for over 40 years I decided I no longer wanted to work full time.

To enjoy the best possible work/life balance I established GARY O | BOOKKEEPING in 2018.

I can now work as and when I want with my small client base.

My Approach

I use industry best practice procedures and processes to ensure that your bookkeeping will be completed accurately and in a timely manner. 

I will give you the best service available with all services provided in an ethical manner.

My Affiliations

Institute of Certified Bookkeepers

The Institute of Certified Bookkeepers (ICB) promotes and maintains the standard of professional bookkeeping. 

Australian Bookkeepers Network

The Australian Bookkeepers Network (ABN) also provides bookkeeping support.

Benefits of Membership

Membership to each organisation is based on qualifications, work-experience and competence.

As a member, I have access to their support to ensure that I apply the correct bookkeeping principles to my work.

Both organisations provide technical publications and resources which are relevant and topical to the bookkeeping industry.

In addition there are networking opportunities, training/education, and business tools that help guide bookkeepers through their bookkeeping journey.
