Sandeep took over as our accountant only recently, however, in a very short period he has strategically cleaned up and fixed our previous accounting system and management structures and as a result has revolutionised our processes and have provided us with the in-depth reporting procedures. We have been thoroughly impressed with Sandeep’s technical skills and professionalism. Sandeep is incredibly generous with his time and expertise and his technical knowledge and ability to problem solve and think outside the box has greatly helped us achieve our business goals. As an accountant and business associate, Sandeep earns our highest recommendation.

Les has spent countless hours providing a coaching / mentoring role to assist us to change the way we behave in relation to our finances and has opened opportunities that we did not even know exist. Our experience with Les has been nothing short of amazing. How one person can not only hear what is being said but is able to understand the emotional/psychological drivers underpinning the situation and respond with non-judgemental, well considered and highly documented advice is simply outstanding. In my mind, there could not possibly be a more caring, technically brilliant, financial adviser.

Engaging & working with Les was one of the best decisions I have ever made. From the outset he impressed me as an individual that not only possessed acute financial acumen and integrity, but also a real desire to “make a difference” for his clientele. Les has provided me with a variety of services; finance brokerage, varying insurances, debt recycling & investment strategies. Each time, the service & outcomes have far surpassed my expectations. It has taken me a great deal of time to find someone of his calibre and in the bargain, I have acquired a friend that has a vested interest in my future. I have recommended Les to several colleagues & friends in the firm knowledge that their experience will mirror my own.
National Sales Director, Marcus Willey
Over the past 7 years Les’s professional advice and friendship has been the cornerstone in allowing both me and my wife to start our own business and I can attest that the businesses continued success and substantial growth over the past 3 years has been in no small part the ongoing mentorship and advice that Les continues to provide. To try and sum up I can honestly say that my life is better knowing Les McGuire. His continued support and friendship is something that I will cherish for the rest of my life. There a very few people in this world that can make such a significant impact in one’s life just by being there. Les is certainly one of these, he is my rock in a stormy sea he is someone that I not only call a friend, but I am proud to call Brother. As Les would say ‘if you do the job right, everything else including the money takes care of itself.

Sometimes in life, you the client, can have all the money and houses you could ever need. But the pain of life and the reason for even being can negate any purpose of financial safety. It takes more than a degree or some fancy marketing talk and catchphrases handed down by head office, to make a difference. Sometimes it takes a human being, with a heart, a sense of humour, and with a familiar story, to actually save that client. Sometimes, it takes someone with an understanding that you need to invest in the person before you get to invest in the funds. Today I remain, with a secured future, and secured friendship. Today I continue with an outlook on understanding financial matters more. Today I chose, as easily as it is, to say thank you to Les Mcguire, for providing the knowledge, the understanding, the time, and the care.

Les has a real desire to help those in need. Not only has his vast knowledge of industry placed us in a position to be able to nurse this structure with a better cash flow but his unquestionable care and consideration have also assisted us in times of personal and emotional advice. Les shows incredible care and passion for our personal needs and professional needs at all times. To this day I am eternally grateful for the time and effort, far and beyond at the wee hours of the morning given by Les for our cause. Les has also been there when my husband and I were struggling personally and he helped us mediate an exceptional outcome. This has led to us now being in a far more positive personal position also.

As a small business owner and client, I have been extremely fortunate to have met Mr Les McGuire. Les had helped me immensely in both business and on a personal level, his wealth of financial knowledge and professionalism goes far and beyond, what I would have ever expected to have received when I was referred to Les. Les is always available regardless of the hour whether it be day or night to offer advice, to ensure we are on track which is something I have never experienced before. In this day and age to find a gentleman of this calibre is nothing short of astounding.

I have used Astute Advisory and Sandeep Singh for three years as my trusted adviser. Their professionalism and industry-leading technology and knowledge have helped streamline my accounting practices and tax obligations. Astute has helped me negotiate with the ATO while managing complex forecasting and monitoring of my financial position. I would not hesitate to recommend (and have done so on many occasions) their services to my closest friends, family and co-workers.
, Joshua McCutcheon
I see Sandeep not only as a trusted advisor – using his business acumen to be candid about when I should and should not do something – but also as an extension of my team. He ensures that I get on with running my business, so I can sleep at night knowing I am not going to be caught out by any tax and compliance issues. Additionally, I find that Sandeep is able to understand the complexities within my business and explain the impact of industry changes and business decisions on our bottom line in a way that I can understand, an attribute I have found incredibly lacking in the accounting profession where my previous discussions with accountants were in terminology and jargon which I had no hope of comprehending. He is patient, thorough and thoughtful. I have already recommended Sandeep to other medical and dental professionals and will continue to do so.

Sandeep is hands down, the best accountant I’ve ever had. I had a real mess on my hands from my previous accountant when I first started working with Sandeep. He quickly and properly sorted things that I thought had been done and were not. He then sat down with me and put a plan in place that organised my business and family accounting processes. Several years later, I was facing a difficult business decision. Again, Sandeep gave me sound advice and also tremendous accounting support through a very difficult time. I am now in the best place possible for his help and accounting knowledge and expertise.
