About Professional Consultants Group

Professional Consultants Group is a South Australian financial solutions company responsible for the creation and implementation of financial strategies for both private clients and sophisticated investors.

When you deal with PCG there is no need to shuttle between accountants, auditors, tax consultants and financial planners. All the expertise is available within our group.

We know that you want to deal with people that can help you succeed and are down-to-earth, friendly, easy to talk to and provide value for money. Having the right technical knowledge and expertise is a given. Although you can rest assured that over 15 years Professional Consultants Group has been advising clients, we have built up a wealth of experience that is hard to match.

Our clients really appreciate our straight-talking approach and the practical and proactive way we deliver solutions. We know that your resources are limited, so we make the best use of your time and investment in our services. Our fees are extremely competitive. Unlike many other firms of accountants we don’t normally charge for things like phone calls and, after inflation, our fees don’t change much year-to-year.

As a firm of Certified Practising Accountants (CPAs), we provide a range of services that you can call upon no matter what stage you are at in your personal or business life. If you’re looking to build a better business or you’re preparing for retirement, we can help.

Our financial planning “creed” at Professional Consultants Group, is that we believe it’ never too soon to start considering your financial future, and starting late is better than not starting at all.

It is a common misconception that you need to have a lot of money to see a financial adviser. We can show you how to reduce your mortgage, without reducing your lifestyle, achieve your goals (whether that be an annual holiday or private education for your children) whilst simultaneously setting you up financially for a secure and hassle free retirement.

Whatever your current stage of life our aim is to form a partnership with you based on trust and integrity so that we can continue to help you on the path to financial security.
