Graeme is our money man

‘ Like a lot of sole prac­ti­tion­ers I did 100 hours a week, and I woke up one morn­ing and re­alised it was killing me ’ — Graeme Flem­ing

GRAEME Flem­ing de­scribes his pro­fes­sional back­ground as ‘wide’ — so wide that you could drive a truck through it.

He has bat­tled with bal­ance sheets, tin­kered in trusts and sorted out su­per­an­nu­a­tion funds, and that’s just the tip of the ice­berg.

If you have a ques­tion and it has some­thing to do with money, then chances are Graeme is the guy to go to for ad­vice.

He is the founder of Au­dax Con­sult­ing in Heath­cote, which cov­ers your ba­sic ac­count­ing and au­dit­ing needs as well as more a range of more spe­cial­ist ser­vices.

He set up his firm in Heath­cote in 2011 af­ter wak­ing up one morn­ing and de­cid­ing that he was sick of his life in Mel­bourne.

“I had my own prac­tice in Mel­bourne for about 16 years, where I did tra­di­tional tax work. Like a lot of sole prac­ti­tion­ers I did 100 hours a week, and I woke up one morn­ing and re­alised it was killing me,” he said.

While work­ing in Mel­bourne he cov­ered mainly bank­ing and fi­nance law, but he also cov­ered cor­po­rate trusts, real es­tate, fi­nance con­sult­ing, and even sol­dier set­tle­ments for world war two vet­er­ans.

Af­ter the in­tense work­load be­gan tak­ing its toll on Graeme, a friend sug­gested he open a firm in Heath­cote.

“I was al­ways on the hunt to do some­thing in Heath­cote, and I jumped at the chance to move when I found some clean-up au­dit­ing work here.”

Graeme now works at a more se­date pace, but he cov­ers an even broader range of jobs than ever be­fore.

These in­clude ac­count­ing, fi­nance and con­sult­ing work for com­mu­nity groups, sport­ing clubs, schools, and real es­tate agents.

“Be­cause of my back­ground dif­fer­ent peo­ple want help with dif­fer­ent things,” he said.

“My busi­ness spans from the Queens­land border, where I do some su­per funds, and I also do work for a ten­nis club I’ve never met in Ho­bart. I do ev­ery­thing in be­tween.”
