Around August 2011, I considered a change from my previous accountancy firm in search of a more responsive service provider. I met with Allan Vickers and was immediately impressed by his helpful attitude and genuine desire to see my business grow. This gave me confidence that I was making the right decision to move my companies business to Insight Business and Financial Services. Allan and his team have become an integral part of all facets of my business, offering constructive advice and service in the areas of taxation law, company structures and business strategies.
Furthermore his insightful and timely advice has added value to my business, and has assisted in streamlining our internal accounting leading to greater efficiencies in that area. Allan and his team are very proactive in the way that they deal with their clients, they are approachable and provide advice in a manner that is easily understood. I would unreservedly recommend Al and the team at Insight Business and Financial Services to those who are looking for quality taxation and business advice and service.
John Hurley, Owner, Agrismart - Goondiwindi
I've been looked after by Peter Crothers at Insight for a little over 12 months - after changing accountants when I relocated from Western Australia.
Peter and the Insight team have helped me restructure my business and really streamline my finances and business operation. I now have more clarity around my business finances, have achieved a major cashflow improvement and am enjoying considerable tax savings. Peter's service is always very prompt and is delivered with attention to detail.
Celia Brosnan, Farmer - Thallon
Congratulations Myf on your partnership in this great firm. I believe Kevin and I were given the gift of wisdom when we joined Insight in the mid 90’s. Congratulations also, on your new premises in Toowoomba. I’m amazed at the dedication of you all to keep abreast of the changes, the government moods and the patience you have with us as clients. It is the personal content of your business that is so appealing to me and my family.
Janine Wolski, Wolski Glass & Security - Toowoomba
We have been working with Gerry Doumany since March 2011 on a range of issues including grant applications, workplace health & safety concerns, business development and MYOB training. We have learnt a lot about our business with Gerry’s support, particularly gaining a better understanding of our financials and the critical reports for running our business.
Gerry is a very warm and caring person. Her support and genuine interest in our business has helped us come out of the floods with a more positive outlook to the future. We are so glad to have been able to meet and work with Gerry and hope to continue the relationship into the future.

I just wanted to say thank you for arranging the financial planning meeting yesterday with Nick Rundle. He was very easy to talk to and we found him very informative. I feel relieved we are finally taking a new approach with things.

Organised, efficient, approachable, friendly, helpful. They’re not bad at accounting and financial services either!!
Insight Business Services are a dynamic team who have been there to help us with all our business and planning needs. We value and appreciate our working relationship with Insight.
Mark & Kim Geddes, InDepth Video - Port Douglas & Cairns
I am happy to pass on some positive comments made by our business analyst in Cairns regarding the work you have done for us over the years. She was genuinely impressed with the quality of your work and mentioned that our financial records were the best she had seen in some time. Keep up the good work.
While I’m writing I’d like to also thank you for helping Kim and I put perspective on our personal financial goals and for giving us clear direction on where we are heading. Your advice has been invaluable and certainly very much appreciated. Best of all we are seeing financial benefits as a direct result of the forward planning you helped to put in place.
We will continue to recommend the Insight Team to anyone who is looking for excellent taxation planning and financial advice.
Michael Bell, Builder - Goondiwindi
We have utilised Insight’s accountancy and financial services for approximately 7 years. During that time, we have enjoyed a business relationship which we value. Specifically, Allan Vickers has been the pillar of that solid business relationship.
Our business, over the years, has no doubt at times provided Allan and the team with a degree of challenge. Any of which have been met with thought and due consideration as to how best to deal with the particular event.
We have found Allan’s and other employees' advice, information, efficiency and general conduct as being professional, high quality and of genuine interest and truthfulness.
In simple terms, Insight holds to the quality core values such as those mentioned above.
We believe Insight’s vision of managing their clients tax positions responsibly, along with providing assistance in building their clients wealth, retirement and succession plans provide a holistic and genuinely refreshing approach in this field. Yes, still refreshing after seven years!
We do not hesitate in recommending Allan Vickers and Insight Business and Financial Services to others.
Lyn Crowther, WR Crowther Dental - Goondiwindi
Some brief points on our dealings with Insight:
- Prompt in returning phone calls and emails – this is vital
- Offer new perspectives on business advice
Overall Insight and the team offer a great accounting experience.
Hamish & Mary McIntyre, Farmers & Agribusiness Consultants -St George
We have been with Insight since it's inception, and find their work to be of a very professional standard. In our business we deal with quite a few accounting firms, including one of the "big four", world-wide organisations that handle international investors in Australian agriculture.
Peter Crothers and his Insight team help us to prepare investment proposals, both agricultural and commercial, for our banks and all involved seem very happy with these.
Peter is great when it comes to helping you to "get a deal over the line" with regard to finance.
Nicholas Goodhew - Toowoomba
I've known Allan for 10 years. We met playing golf at a charity golf day in Goondiwindi. During this time I have watched first hand Insight grow. The quality of their work has escalated to a superior standard, way beyond just the compliance of my annual tax return. Al's a first class financial surgeon who leads a highly trustworthy team which provides a professional financial service that is honest, personal and accommodating of your specific needs and circumstances. This sound tailored service sets Insight apart from their opposition, and keeps me in regular contact with Al. My queries are always answered promptly and honestly. They really do care. Al is integral in ensuring my decision making is sound. I look forward to remaining a loyal client for many years to come.
Don Sudholz, Income Protection Insurance - Goondiwindi
I had only applied for my Insurance cover only a few months prior to my sickness. I was unfortunately off work for 2 months, which was a huge financial burden, particularly when I have a family. With the help from the IFA team at Insight, we lodged a claim for my Income Protection policy. The claim was processed quickly with AXA, who were fantastic to deal with. I was particularly lucky to have dealt with the same person through the whole process, which made it so much easier. It would have been difficult without having this policy. You don't realise how important it is to have Income Protection Insurance - I never thought I'd need to make a claim so soon.
Guy Newell, Grazier - Augathella
Allan Vickers has been assisting my wife and I with planning our finances and tax for the last five years. Allan has always been very easy to work with. He is very personable and takes a great interest in what our family is up to and where we need our business to be to provide for our family’s growing needs. He is very good at explaining complex accounting options to help us fulfill our objectives. He is also good at following up with us to ensure that all actions put forward in our discussions with him are resolved. The services Allan has provided for us have included: preparing our annual income tax assessments, providing investment advice, providing project auditing services, and preparing for family business succession.
