Amanda Powell CA

Amanda Powell has more than 30 years’ experience as a Chartered Accountant and taxation expert. Bush & Campbell's first female trainee, Amanda is proud to be part of the firm’s Board of Directors, which is equal parts male and female.

Specialising in GST, capital gains tax, succession planning and business management, Amanda maintains high ethical and professional standards and prides herself on getting the best benefit for her clients.

Amanda believes that clients deserve more than just a set of financial statements or quick turnaround - she is known for her excellent strategic solutions to complex issues.  Amanda advises a wide variety of businesses in both rural and commercial sectors in Eastern Australia including retirement villages, construction and property development, real estate, retail, wholesale and manufacturing.

For Amanda, maintaining strong technical knowledge is imperative. Constant research, seminars and professional conferences help ensure she stays up-to-date, however what’s really important to her is partnering with clients on their life’s journey.

Amanda’s dedication produces a committed client list,  and her greatest satisfaction comes from seeing clients grow and succeed in their business / working life then retire in comfort. She believes it’s equally rewarding is seeing the children of her clients also becoming Bush & Campbell clients.

I get to know my clients well. It’s rewarding to see that you’re really helping, it’s great when you’re able to see positive changes and outcomes or get them to where they wanted to be.
