What our Clients have said...

There is great satisfaction in knowing you’ve done your job well and served your clients’ interests. It gives us particular satisfaction when our clients take the time to acknowledge their satisfaction by providing us with their testimonials.

I have been a client of the principal of Downing and Lindner Taxation and Business Services for almost 30 years.

During this time I have been involved in real estate development and much of the success I’ve had in this field is due to the support and business acumen of Gordon Downing.

With Downing and Lindner Taxation personnel having had experience in working for the ATO and some of the major multinational taxation companies, it brings with it enormous competency and understanding to sometimes complex matters.

To have such a professional team of this stature available to us in a “small coastal” town is quite unique. I feel confident that all aspects of my business, in both large and small matters, is well taken care of by Downing and Lindner Tax and Business Services.

Cherryl and I arrived on the Sunshine Coast ,December 1978. The current ANZ area bank manager suggested to us that as we were opening a new business , we would need a good accountant. He suggested we contacted this young man Gordon Downing and gave us his contact details. Which we did. Thirty eight years later we still believe that contacting Gordon was one of the best moves we ever made in business. It would be difficult to estimate the great number of times Gordon’s help and advice has been without question, extremely good. Without going into any detail, I would like to say that if we had the chance over again , we would definitely make the same decision in choosing Gordon as our accountant.

We have been very fortunate indeed to enjoy the high quality accountancy services of Mr. Gordon Downing, since our relationship commenced back in the 1970’s. Gordon has always provided us with exceptional quality advice, and has made himself very accessible to provide the best taxation and general advice on many matters we encountered in running our business right up until the present time. His support both professionally and personally, has contributed greatly to the success of our business as well as our lives generally.

We first met Gordon Downing in 1980 when moving to Queensland from Western Australia to open our first business venture…

Since that first day our relationship with Gordon has become closer over the years and we now class him as one of our closest friends and treat him as one of the family. Our Son (offshore helicopter avionics technician) and his Partner (graphic designer), our Daughter (Pharmacist) and Son in Law (owns and manages a complex irrigated cotton, dry-land crops and cattle property) are all very satisfied clients of Gordon.

We would have no hesitation in recommending Downing and Lindner Taxation to any prospective clients, as we know they will give total commitment to their accounting and business needs.

I have known and been a client of Gordon Downing for over thirty years. During all that time Gordon and his staff have given my companies, my associates and myself exemplary service.

They have assisted me in all areas of my business and taxation affairs including my SMSF. Their advice has always been correct and contributed substantially to my financial and business success.

Their attention to detail and ensuring that everything they do is correct has been unerring.

The friendly and caring service I have received from all members of the staff over the years has been outstanding and made it a real pleasure to deal with them. 

They truly are a pleasure to deal with.
