Advisor Connection: Helping you to help your most important clients

Increase your competitiveness

The strength of a smaller accounting practice is the close, enduring relationships you are able to build with your clients. However, as your client’s businesses grow, their financial issues can become increasingly complicated, and you may risk losing them as specific expertise beyond your area of specialisation is required.

Advisor Connection gives partners in smaller accounting practices access to the broader PwC network. We provide access to our experts across all tax issues , including GST, Small Business CGT concessions, Stamp Duty, employment taxes, property development, as well as a deals practice, giving you the resources to answer any questions your key clients have, however complex.

Keeping up with digital disruption and industry changes

Recent changes to the accounting profession, especially around cloud accounting and the digital realm, are challenging the traditional compliance base for smaller firms. Having PwC’s Private Clients on your side enables you to extend your offering to take on value-adding consulting work.

“The majority of my business traditionally came from accounting and tax compliance work, however, since joining PwC’s Advisor Connection network I have started to extend my offering with more consulting work as I know I now have a PwC team ready to support me and my key clients with issues that are outside my comfort zone.”

— Glenn Barnett, Partner at GJ Barnett & Associates

A team of experts who are always on-hand

You will be given access to a dedicated Advisor Connection team which will include a Partner, Manager and a Senior Consultant. Unlike hotline-style services, you’ll be speaking with the same people every time –they can draw on extensive expertise from across the PwC network where necessary to answer your questions, or act as a sounding board.

Increase your competitiveness

By joining Advisor Connection, you combine the valuable personal relationships of a small, local firm with the knowledge resources and reputation of a multinational one.

The benefits for you include:

  • One-on-one contact with a senior team at PwC
  • Expert advice for your clients and for your own business
  • Help retain your most important clients who may otherwise think they have outgrown you and contemplate a move to a 2nd tier firm
  • A sounding board for complex issues which provides the best outcome for your clients.
  • Raising awareness of opportunities you could bring to key clients
  • Tax updates and important industry news
  • Access to technical training for you and your team

"PwC Advisor Network connects me to the people I don’t yet know, (but should) it is much more than just getting tax advice!"

— Brendan Lucas, Hopscotch Accounting - Advisor Connection Member
