At Resolve Divorce, we are on a mission to help separated people achieve better divorce outcomes. We aim to use our influence to create a positive social change and reduce the negative impact of divorce on the overall community. With a focus on family values, Marco and the team at Piteo Accounting & Advisory share in my vision, and have been instrumental in my firm’s establishment and growth over the past 5 years. From business operations, cash forecasting, strategic advice and beyond; nothing is ever ‘too hard’. Their holistic and transparent approach empowers me to make better decisions and has supported the continued growth of my business. I would not hesitate to recommend Marco and his team to any SME looking to take their business to new heights.
I’ve had the good fortune to be a colleague and friend of Marco Piteo for approx. twenty years and over this time, I’ve watched him grow into the values-driven person he is today. The firm Marco has built has foundations of integrity and professionalism. But what sets them apart is the people they employ. Marco is always ‘on the hunt’ for people with excellent professional and personal skills.
I am personally inspired by helping people to find dignity in retirement. Part of this is showing them how to get rich - slowly - and to stay rich. A significant part of the strategy to achieve financial independence after a working life has concluded is having excellent accounting. I’ve never been let down by Marco Piteo. Observant readers of this testimony will realise my business, Marinis Financial Group, shares a building with Marco and his team. I would not have made the choice to relocate unless I had trust in him and a deep respect for Marco as a person. As they say, actions are more profound than words!
I have an association with Marco on a personal level that goes back many years and on a professional level we have been jointly assisting clients for over 10 years. I find clients of the Piteo team have a high degree of trust in Marco. It’s evident that he is more than just their “accountant”, he is a trusted adviser and often a friend. When he has introduced me to assist in the personal risk insurance or retirement planning area, his clients trust that he is referring them to someone who will look after them the way he and his team always have. That inherent trust makes it much easier for them to be open and honest with me and generally means they are more receptive to our recommendations. From my experience nothing is too much trouble for Marco and his team and they have a real desire to help people, which aligns very closely with our offering. Helping people is what inspires me in my profession; my purpose is my client’s peace of mind. Whether it’s ensuring they can live a financially free retirement or ensuring that should the unthinkable occur, they and their families are financially protected.
Hender Contracting has been providing a high-quality specialist recruitment consultancy service to Piteo Accounting & Advisory (PAA) since 2015, with successful permanent and temporary appointments across accounting and finance and other disciplines. During this time we have worked closely with Marco and his team to genuinely get to know them and develop an in-depth understanding of their business needs and what a “perfect candidate” means to them. This has enabled us to deliver a quality service and advice for staffing solutions as a true business partner. Partnering with such an experienced, professional, and dedicated team on an inclusive basis, has helped us ensure the best possible outcomes for PAA. This in turn has allowed PAA to focus on what they do best, as a leading accounting advisory firm, and concentrate on other aspects of growing their business and delivering quality financial services to their clients.
I’m a property valuer with over 30 years of experience. Property is forever changing, and you have to keep up to date with the latest information and I enjoy that challenge. I’ve been with Marco since the inception of Piteo Accounting & Advisory. We’ve supported each other as Marco has provided invaluable accounting advice to us and we have been able to provide property valuations for his clients. Marco and his team have provided us with good, sound, reliable accounting advice in a timely manner. It’s great that Marco’s business growth has resulted in more referrals of valuation work by him and his staff. He is not your usual accountant - he is easy to communicate with, always takes time to listen and explains everything thoroughly and has a network of other professionals to tap into if needed.
In my profession I help organisations plan for the future and I love seeing the possibilities in a business or an organisation become reality. When I was setting my business up and just testing the waters, Marco helped me keep it basic to begin with. Then once I knew my business was viable, he helped me get the right business structure for the long term which freed me up and gave me time to focus on my work. The biggest ongoing help is taking the bookkeeping away from me! Piteo Accounting and Advisory assist with my tax returns and tax planning. They always quickly respond to any questions that come up, and Marco is absolutely switched on about what is possible and what is a good idea. He can see different pathways to your goals and can easily explain why one alternative is better than others.
