Donald G Poole B.Bus, CPA, CTA, CEPA

Don is the founding partner of The Poole Group and has been in public practice for more than 37 years.

Work History

From 1974 to 1980 Don was employed in a suburban accounting practice in Brisbane. In May 1980, he opened a small office in Mooloolaba on the Sunshine Coast. The business expanded rapidly and in 1983 we built our previous premises in Brisbane Road, Mooloolaba. Due to further expansion, it was necessary to again move to larger premises, and in 2007 the firm moved to its current premises in Birtinya.

The practice has 7 partners, 42 technical and 10 support staff and handles Taxation, Accounting, Audit, Business Management, SMSF, and Investment & Insurance Advisory Services.

The client base represents a broad cross section of industry types including Medical, Agriculture, Building, Manufacturing, Wholesaling, Retailing, Clubs and Non-Profit organizations. Client sizes range from sole traders to some larger businesses (with turnovers > $100M). Predominantly these businesses are located in the SE Qld region.

Don has for many years been an advocate for exit planning and aged care advice and has assisted many business owners in their exit transition period.
