About Us

Rowe & Co Pty Ltd has been recently re-branded to Top Cat Accountants Pty Ltd due to the retirement of Ian Rowe.  

I purchased the practice in May 2013 from ian Rowe and Geoffrey Norgate.  Geoff retired in 2013 and Ian remained until December 2015.  I feel extremely grateful for meeting Ian and Geoff and I knew once I first met them that I would be buying this business.

We are situated in a lovely modest old post-war style home in the lovely suburb of Camp Hill, Brisbane.   Aside from being a Chartered Accountant, I enjoy redecorating and design and I have enjoyed redecorating the office and garden.  My style is typically nothing like one would expect from an Accountant's office and I enjoy being different from the norm.

As a self-proclaimed cat lover when I re-branded the business, I felt making cats a theme for the business was inevitable.  The cat appearing in all the photos and logos is my own cat Oscar and they are not photoshopped!!  I took him to a professional pet studio to have these photos made.  Amazing I thought as I didn't think he would do it!
