Testimonials

"Shane from Ryan FC acts as our outsourced CFO. We were initially referred to Shane when we needed some assistance with a major tender submission. With Shane’s assistance we won the tender and have been with him ever since. Shane also assisted us with the purchase of a business to complement our existing operations. We meet with Shane monthly to review our financial results and discuss the initiatives that we have planned for the months ahead. Our business is growing quickly and we look forward to Shane continuing to be part of that growth"

“Ryan FC looks after all of my taxation, accounting and business advisory work. Shane recently helped me through the process of preparing business sale information, negotiating the sale and transacting and structuring the deal to minimize my taxation liabilities.

Even though my business is in Sydney, the turnaround and efficiency in completing work is second to none and I have no hesitation in recommending Ryan FC."

"We changed accounts to Ryan Financial approximately five years ago when moving to the region. It is always a daunting task to find someone that you can trust with your finances. We have been so pleased and overwhelmed by the great partnership we have now formed with Shane and the team. They listen, they communicate well as a team, the give great advice and they have immediate response time when we need it. Overall, the Ryan Financial team, is a trustworthy, knowledgeable team that is an asset to our business".

Andy & Nette McCoubrie, Dunbogan Boatshed & A & J Creative Industries Pty Ltd

"6 years ago we moved our manufacturing and design business to regional NSW and it has grown and developed despite encountering some adverse conditions. Prominent among these has been a series of frustrating experiences with accountants. My expectation was that delivery of service would cover important issues of compliance, but I was desperate for more than this as my experience in the commercial world was limited. I was referred to Shane Ryan who initially impressed me with his real life commercial experience as well as his ability to understand and support my vision for growth and innovation in business. Ryan Accounting has our business and family accounts and the first item that was identified led to the amendment of 4 tax returns resulting in a substantial refund.  I am happy to recommend Shane and his ability to listen, understand and work with the diverse and specific needs of small business. His support and input into our company is very much appreciated and will be ongoing."

Rob Eddy, Food Machines Australia, Port Macquarie

“Ryan FC has looked after our company and personal tax returns for a number of years. Shane has assisted us with developing a tax effective strategy to acquire a commercial investment property and then helped us through the transaction by dealing with solicitors and financial institutions. Having Shane’s guidance and support was invaluable and gave us comfort that we were on track to a good result.”

Romeo & Connie Nocelli, Ultratune, Port Macquarie

"I first met Shane at a Chamber networking evening some years ago. At the time we were looking for a local accounting and business advisory firm for our businesses. What initially impressed me was how easily he moved around the room and importantly the number of senior business bankers and other business professional people that he obviously had an on-going working relationship with. The subsequent decision to move to Ryan Financial was an easy one, the quality of service, advice and strategy we get across all facets of the business from accounting services to business acquisition is first rate. Running a small business in this day and age is hard enough but with Shane and the Ryan Financial team on board it's a whole lot easier."

Guy Satterthwaite, Digital Signs & Printing and Olive Communications, Port Macquarie

"Shane’s solid foundation as a Chartered Accountant in the big four accounting firms and commercial acumen gained in global, national and locally based businesses and local government provides experience rarely found in our region that can be utilised by a rapidly growing client base."

Ben Davidson, Coast 2 Coast Sports, Port Macquarie

"Ryan Accountants have handled the accounting needs of my wife Claire and myself for Shane’s entire ownership of the firm. They have dealt with personal and business accounting across several different businesses and industry types. I recommend Ryan Accountants with the utmost confidence. Having great financial help and advice is vital to running a successful business. Shane and his team deal with all our ATO requirements efficiently, and our various business accounts are analysed in depth and insightfully. This helps in the progression and growth of our businesses and we find their help invaluable. Most of our business interests are in Sydney but this is no barrier to choosing an accountant. With technology as it is the location of a good accountant is irrelevant. The best accountant for us is in Port Macquarie and email means that distance is not an issue. The added benefit of Ryan Accountants is the “large picture” financial advice. Shane helps in long term business planning, diversity and acquisition, even superannuation and investment strategy."

Luke & Claire Behrmann, Bet With Luke, Sydney

"I’ve known Shane for many years and so when he setup Ryan Financial I didn’t hesitate to get on board. Ryan Financial offers a comprehensive range of services with a personalised approach.  The compliance areas are looked after with a minimum of fuss but it is the strategic business advice I receive from Shane on a regular basis that really makes the difference. We’ve got some big plans and it’s great to have someone with international corporate experience so accessible to assist us along the way. The support provided to our business across a broad range of areas has been invaluable and we feel well supported in meeting our financial objectives as a result of the guidance received."

Glenn Scott, Lighthouse Cellars, Port Macquarie

"I first used Shane Ryan for accounting services around 1997. Since then I have called upon his commercial advice from time to time and so, with the depth of knowledge and experience on offer, we were confident to move our professional services business across to Ryan Financial at inception. It was a judicious decision and we have not looked back. The broad range of financial services available combined with their personable approach made Ryan’s an easy choice for us. We have found Ryan Financial to be flexible and adaptable to the needs of our various business interests. Approachable and professional, they have instilled confidence on every level and we are excited about the opportunities for business growth and development, in collaboration with Ryan’s."

Brett Gilbert, Gilbert's Legal, Port Macquarie

"I spent many years working in Local Government and came to understand the complexities of working in an organization that managed a diverse range of operations and provided a multitude of services to the local community. The interrelationship of the various financial funds, together with their numerous budgets, is a complex affair and requires special skills in understanding their function and establishing and controlling their budgets.

With Shane’s appointment to the position of Financial Controller within the Council, I was impressed with the speed at which he adapted to Local Government and gained an in depth understanding of the Council’s functions and could apply his experience from his previous work in the private sector. He was integral to management of project, operational, legal and property matters and was a member of the Asset Management Planning steering group, responsible for implementing management processes across the organisation's $1.1bn asset base. When Shane left Local Government and started his own accountancy business, I moved my superannuation, business and personal financial affairs to his practice as I believed he could offer a superior service.

Shane also exhibited specialist skills in managing risk and was a key driver in the delivery of a sophisticated Risk Management Plan for the Council. Risk is an element of operating a business that is often overlooked, but can have serious implications if not managed correctly. Shane’s background and experience enables him to consider risk for his clients as part of his normal practice.

Since commencing my own consultancy business, I have engaged Shane to provide expert advice on budgets, financial modelling and in the preparation of business cases for my clients. His advice and direction enable sound business decisions to be made. I am a very satisfied customer."

Bob Bailey, Robert Bailey Consulting, Port Macquarie 

“I have known Shane and his family for the 17 years I have been in Port Macquarie. In this time we have established a strong and respectful friendship. Since Shane has taken over the running of his own accountancy firm I have transferred all my financial dealings to him. I trust him fully to deal with me in an honest manner and to have my family’s best interest at heart when giving me advice. I expect to have a long, professional relationship with Ryan Accountants and a longer friendship with Shane, Rene, Isabella, Rafferty and Amelie.”
