Meet the Accountants

Jane - Director and Strategic Advisor

Meet Jane

Director and Strategic Advisor

Jane leads a warm, client-focused business, ensuring that clients feel welcome and informed.

Jane is passionate about property as a wealth creation vehicle. She owns properties herself, and knows personally the pitfalls and possibilities. Jane frequently acts as a valuable sounding board to the firm’s many property clients using the cumulative knowledge gained from endless exposure.

Jane is also passionate about the success of small business. Jane sets an example to her business clients by running a professional and profitable business. She understands firsthand the complex maze of tax requirements and reporting for business, and is often complimented on how she can clearly explain difficult accounting and tax concepts.

On the weekends, Jane loves slow, lazy mornings with pots of tea, magazines and journals. She also likes spending time with her wonderful two sons and you will sometimes find her briskly circumnavigating Lake Burley Griffin with her fur baby, Lottie, in tow.

Meet Joy

Manager, Business Tax

Joy is the quintessential accountant – she just has to get it right.

Joy is highly qualified, and has worked as an accountant for more than 40 years. Her various roles include running her own business, CFO of a major public sector organisation, as well as in public practice where she has spent the majority of her time. This length of time and breadth of exposure means that Joy has built up a level of expertise that no training or education can match.

Joy oversees the tax affairs of all our business clients. She has worked on the whole gamut of accounting platforms including MYOB, XERO, Quicken and BankLink, and can seamlessly work between them.

On the weekend Joy loves spending time with her beautiful grandchildren. Her all time dream is to own a Florist shop and play with flowers all day! On working at Hadrill, Joy says “Even though we all work hard, we also know that family is important and so we make sure we balance work and family commitments. Hadrill Accounting is a flexible workplace that caters well for this balance.”

Meet Alycia.

Manager, Individual Tax.

Alycia leads the Individual Tax Return unit. Her attention to detail and focus on client relations is second to none. Alycia’s skill of delivering clear, concise, informative notes explaining why a particular tax treatment has been applied is highly acclaimed among our clients.

On the weekend Alycia loves sleeping in past 7am, catching up with friends and spending time with her nieces and nephews. Her all time dream is to get back over to the USA and travel the 20 states she hasn’t yet been to.

On working at Hadrill Accounting, Alycia says “Being a detail oriented person, I like ensuring that my client’s finances are in good order and no stone goes unturned. The challenge of ‘getting things right’ for my clients suits my thorough and methodical approach to life!”

Meet Lottie

Corporate Mascot

Spending a lot of time at Hadrill headquarters, Lottie is equally at home in Jane’s office as she is leaping about a verdant field. She spends her days monitoring visitors and trying to remove furry charms from staff members’ handbags. In her spare time, Lottie likes to pursue what makes her happy: a warm bed and a full belly.

 

 

"We have been with Hadrill Accounting for many years - in fact, since our earliest days creating Perform Australia, which is now one of Australia's leading drama schools. Jane has helped us grow our business, not only through cautionary advice and sage encouragement but also with a full understanding of our personalities, unique business model and personal passions. Her support team has also been magical. But not only that, we have always been able to have a good laugh with Jane - she makes our meetings fun. We've never had such a good time visiting an accountant and sorting through finances as we have with Jane."

Elizabeth and James Scott, Perform Australia

"Jane has been involved in my business from the very start. When I started I had no business knowledge whatsoever and Jane answered all of my questions patiently and in a way that I could understand. Jane has provided me with sound business and tax advice over the years and has given me the confidence to grow my business significantly. Jane and the team are always responsive to phone calls and emails and go above and beyond to ensure the best outcomes for their clients. It is a pleasure working with Hadrill Accounting and I highly recommend them to anyone starting or running a small business."

"One of the most rewarding and satisfying things in business, is finding the right accountant. Starting any new business venture can be very daunting especially when it comes to budgeting, tax preparation and general business dealings. When you know you have the right person in your corner everything is so much easier. Jane has been my accountant now for over 15 years and in this time she has always gone above and beyond to not only help me understand the financial side of my business but also how to become more prosperous. Not only is she very knowledgeable and professional, her team are always at hand to help when needed. I now have 3 businesses and Hadrill accounting was the first thing I locked in - an absolute game changer. Just sensational!"
