Armidale Autumn


Malcolm & Associates was established in 1993 by Senior Partner John Malcolm following repeated requests for taxation and business advice. 

At the time John had moved to Armidale to complete higher degree studies at the University of New England.  Lecturing in the Marketing and Management Department after completing his Master of Business Administration majoring in Marketing and Human Resource Streams, John established Malcolm & Associates to service the needs of business associates, friends and colleagues. 

Filling a niche in the market, the business which originally operated as a home business has grown to employ 10 professional staff today.  The Principals have been adamant  that growth should not come at the cost of client service and the firm has therefore been able to continue to provide the high quality of service that its client warrant whilst undergoing expansion.

 In July 2001, James Abbo became a partner of the firm.  James had held the position of Senior Accountant with the organisation for a number of years prior to being offered a partnership.  James brings to the firm excellent accounting, audit and taxation skills plus an informed, balanced approach to business systems implementation.
