I had just started my own business and was sick of just being another number to other accountants and finally I came across Marisa Gonzalez and Co.

to grow. The people at Marisa Gonzalez and Co are not only great Accountants but also amazing humans too. I recommend Marisa to anyone who wants their finances managed right.
Marisa and her team are more than your average accountants – they are part of my business family. I know they are ready to assist when it comes to lodging business financials that are timely, compliant, and accurate. More than that, I feel a genuine willingness to discuss issues and share their expertise as part of the overall service they provide, so I can get on with my own business – what more could anyone ask for?
Marisa guided us through step by step in setting up our business and made us feel comfortable in every part of the process. No question we had was left unanswered, and since this was our first experience as business owners, we asked many. 6 months on and she is still offering her assistance when we come across things we need advice on. I would recommend Marisa hands down to anyone who was looking to start up their own small business.” – Walter McIntyre, Director, Stride Physiotherapy.
I’m the director of Riana’s Health and Skin Care Clinic, Monash, Canberra. I have been in business since 1988. In 2010 I immigrated to Australia for a better, more prosperous future. My goal was to provide my family with a solid income and my boys a qualification.
In 2012 I was looking for a new accountant, as the previous two accountants didn’t focus on the goals I had for my family. Marisa Gonzalez came to my clinic for treatments. During our consultation, she informed me that she is an accountant. Being a woman in business, I asked her if she could help me with my accounting needs. Weeks later, Marisa, sorted out many problems; guided me in the right direction; putting in place future goals and achievements. In that same year I won, Sole Trader of the year and Best New Business of the Year.
As time passed, Marisa, changed my business portfolio to a Family Trust. I now earn a steady income, bought a house, supported my three boys through private schools and the ANU. I love to travel and see the Country and spend times with lovely Australian friends. A live my Australian dream!
I can highly recommend Marisa, as she is a person of value and integrity. She is completely transparent and calls a spade a spade!
