Phil Maltby and Associates

In May 2022, the team at Phil Maltby and Associates merger with the Vault Team. After 40 odd years in practice Phil decided to retire and handover to the next generation. With Craig growing up in the region, and looking to move back, it was a logical fit. 

Both Julie and Debbie are staying on and the offices at Moree and Bingara are continuing. 

The opportunities that digitalisation and the movement away from paperbased accounting has been rapid and this is where Phil sees that the handover to Vault will make a significant improvement for clients of the firm. Changing the way things are done is not a reflection the past, more than as technology has evolved there are better ways to do things.

What are the changes?

From a day to day perspective nothing will be changing, both Debbie and Julie are staying on and are valued members of the Vault team. We are keeping the office, but as you will see from Bingara we are giving the locations a bit of a spruce up. With Moree we are looking at a groundfloor option to assist our older clients (as the stairs are a little steep). 

As the practice is moving to digital, but this will be a progressive process, we are not expecting things to change on day one, and will work with you to understand the changes that may happen over the next few years. Most of these will be moving away from a paper based practice to storing everything online. 

As we are primarily a Xero based firm we will be assisting clients to transition to Xero over time, again this will be on the basis that it suits your business. 

Overall, we aim to give you the most practical business advice based on a full understanding of your business. We want to be more than just accountants – we want to be part of your team!
