Who are LBH Accountants?
LBH Accountants, our firm's name, started back 1984 when Jack Liubinskas joined Ed Pethers in partnership. Les Bowyer joined the partnership in 1987 after leaving the employ of the Australian Taxation Office. Ed Pethers retired in 1988 and Ric Bowyer joined the practice in 1989. Jack, Les and Ric have been partners from that date.
The practice has grown from 2 partners and one staffer, to a combined personnel of twenty three, including partners, associates, accountants and administrators. The practice prides itself on retaining key personnel and many staff members have been with the practice for between ten and twenty years.
From small beginnings and tiny offices in Klemzig, the practice occupied 292 Payneham Road Payneham in 1987 but quickly outgrew those premises. In 1992 it moved to much larger offices on the first floor at 294 Payneham Road and by 1997 it occupied both floors of the building. Testament to our history of great client services is that we still have some of those clients that we started with, back from 1984. The firm now has over 7,000 clients, with a range of diversity in services from an income tax return, to all manner of services to small and medium size corporations/businesses, some with turnovers exceeding $25 million per annum.
Our experience, enhanced by continuous professional development, has given all our clients the trust and belief that we know what we're doing.
