Gary Danks – Director
Our family operates a medium-sized manufacturing business on the Gold Coast with 75 staff. We have been serviced by Gerard Wilkes and Associates for more than 40 years. During that time, they have provided general accounting and taxation advice for three generations of family members, our two companies and our self-managed superannuation fund.
I have found the Wilkes team to be reliable, courteous and efficient at all times. Blair Wilkes has been our main point of contact in recent years and he has always managed to solve our challenging tax problems in a most professional manner.
I am very pleased with the service we have received from the Wilkes family and their competent staff over the years. I would recommend them to anyone seeking good, old-fashioned service and informed taxation advice.
Our company, Trade Travel engaged Gerard Wilkes & Associates in 1994 as both our company and personal accountant. During this time our Travel company has grown from just two people to a substantial company with 3 Directors, 10 franchisees two and office locations.
Gerard Wilkes & Associates has been instrumental in assisting us to develop our company and personal portfolio by providing us with a quality of service, advice and attention to detail that is very unique in the 21st Century.
They are a family business and they offer a very personal approach, from the senior partners to the assistants, everyone is friendly, knowledgeable and efficient. I have been working with Blair Wilkes now for 7 years, I do not get passed around to junior staff and I always receive a response to my emails within hours. I have referred many people to their accounting practice over the years and even though some have moved away, they all remain clients and that in itself is a great testimony of a company that has been around since 1977.

It gives us great pleasure to write a testimonial about Gerard Wilkes & Co. Our business commenced in 2008 and we have been with the Gerard Wilkes team since we opened our business. Their advice on all aspects of our business has been professional and has enabled us to prosper, achieve good growth and expansion. We now have a second store. They also gave us fabulous advice in the beginning about establishing a Self Managed Super Fund, this has enabled us to purchase commercial property which is growing in value to ensure a nice retirement in the future. Lovely to deal with and always so obliging to us. We are very grateful to have them as our Accountants.

I joined the Gerard Wilkes and Associates team over 2 years ago. During this time they have attended to all of my personal, business (and bookkeeping) and superannuation needs. Their professionalism, service and dedication to me and my business has been second to none. The team has always been very approachable and it has been very easy to discuss any matters concerning my business, finances and personal matters with them. I have been provided with invaluable advice throughout the growth of my business. My account manager Shannon has used her extensive knowledge and attention to detail to incorporate systems into my business which has enabled me to concentrate more on the hands-on aspect of my business. I have formed a great relationship with the team at Wilkes and Associates over this time and look forward to continuing our relationship for many more to come.

We have received invaluable support, sincere business and superannuation advice and would recommend any person or business to this firm.
Rod & Sam Hofmeister
We have consulted with Gerard Wilkes on all matters of tax planning and wealth creation since1978. When we commenced business in Springsure Central Qld, Gerard had only just started in his own business. Our businesses have both grown from small businesses to the significant operations that they are today.
In that time Gerard Wilkes & Associates have been and still are first class accountants in every way that we wanted. All the staff and partners are personable, prompt to reply to telephone calls and emails. They all put in that extra effort to assist us.
In conjunction with their financial planning arm Wilkes Financial they have also assisted or advised us with Estate Planning, Business Succession and asset and income protection matters.
We have referred many clients to Gerard Wilkes & Associates who are all very happy with the service that they receive and we would not hesitate to recommend others to them for taxation, wealth creation, superannuation or any other facets of consulting required by a small business.
Mal & Joy Murray
Joy and I have been clients of Gerard Wilkes for many years. In that time we have enjoyed family friendly personalised service which makes our business association with Gerard Wilkes and Associates so complete. Any matter is treated as important which is exemplified by the staffs prompt attention and concise answers.
Our original association with Gerard Wilkes & Associates pertained to all matters regarding the operation of a retail business and real estate investments and more recently advice regarding our Self-Managed Superfunds. We have found their service on all business related matters, re-contribution strategies and all matters surrounding superannuation very professional and helpful.
We would not hesitate in recommending their services to anyone who is after a professional and friendly accountant.

Kim and I have been using the services of Gerard Wilkes and Associates for a number of years now, not just because we are happy with their accounting services ,but the confidence a family owned and run business instills. Every Wilkes employee has the ability to make you feel at ease with their professional manner and proven experience. The personal attention starts the moment you walk through the reception door, to be greeted by Jenny, and this continues to Blair, Shannon , Gerard, John Rose and other staff. We have no hesitation in recommending Gerard Wilkes and Associates.

Gold Coast Qld
When my late husband was appointed Chief Magistrate and moved from North QId to the Gold Coast and we were looking for a firm of Accountants to help us manage our Super Fund we tried the larger well known Firms but were very unhappy with the services, until we found Gerard Wilkes and his family. Before my husband passed away I had asked him what Solicitor I should consult if he should die before me and he couldn’t recommend anyone but said to just go along and see Gerard and he would know where to direct me, and sure enough that’s exactly what happened! Without exception Gerard and all
members of his Firm have never turned me away with any of my queries,no matter how large or small, whether it be making a new Will, where they arranged consultation with the
correct Firm of Solicitors who were knowledgeable with Laws regarding dealings with Super Fund Laws, or looking over my Electricity Bill for an opinion on the provider’s charges! On a more serious side they prepare all my Tax and Super Fund Returns and explain everything in
easily understandable language which I appreciate and it’s always a pleasure to walk into the Office and be made welcome by any and all of the staff who work as a family team. I have no hesitation in recommending this Firm and its members as professional, honest and caring in their dealings with all creatures great and small!!
