The J&T Story

 

 

Our History

The J&T firm you see today, was originally founded in Rockhampton in 1986 by Allan Johnson & Paul Tennent and from humble beginnings, has flourished into a thriving firm where in 1991 Allan acquired Paul’s share of the company and became its sole owner.

Fast forward 35 years and our successful firm has grown in leaps and bounds, outgrowing offices, and expanding to Yeppoon after the acquisition of Ward Accounting Group in October of 2014.

Our director Andrew Stuart commenced with the business as an employee in 1999, growing with the firm to go onto be became a shareholder and director in 2014 where he remains actively involved in all aspects of J&T to this day.

Upon his retirement in the January of 2019, Allan’s share of the business was acquired by Robin Joe Kong and Tracey Chester who are the owners and directors of Northern Business Consultants (NBC), which specialises in financial and business consulting and training.

Joe and Tracey are members of CPA Australia and Andrew is a member of the Institute of Chartered Accountants Australia & New Zealand.
