“My focus is to produce the best possible results for my clients. Whether it’s improving the performance of their business or resolving complex tax problems, I like it best when it’s a simple solution,” says Maurice Watson, Partner at Banks Group.

Maurice began his career working in the advertising industry with clients as varied as Colgate, Palmolive and Jaguar Land Rover. Having seen the light, he moved into accounting working at one of the major firms. Then after a period at a large medium tier firm he started his own firm in Sydney almost 20 years ago. Maurice has a wealth of experience working with multinational firms setting up operations in Australia, providing not only tax and accounting services but also a complete back office service.

He also works with many small businesses and really enjoys the personal contact with them. His passion is cloud based accounting because it provides efficiencies for small business at a lower cost and also enables him to work more closely with his clients. Maurice balances his strong work ethic with his commitment to his family. He has been actively involved in not-for-profit organisations related to the family for over 25 years. Maurice loves rugby union, whether it’s watching the Wallabies or one of his sons playing.
