Stephen MazeDirector Business Services


Stephen is quite a few things to his clients: a sounding board for business owners and managers to test their thinking; a person who makes sure that the things that need to be done are done; and a filter between the “Dos” and “Don’ts” of Government regulation and clients’ plans for the future.

With over 20 years experience in the profession, he knows that it’s not just about tax and accounting compliance. Clients want practical, commercially aware advice that they can use. They want to be warned of impending pitfalls, and alerted to opportunities to develop, grow and evolve.

Formerly with KPMG, Stephen is also an accredited adviser member of Family Business Australia and understands the additional complexities faced by clients when business and family mix.

If you need an adviser who is not only technically astute but commercially aware, Stephen has the track record and experience to help you.

A keen cyclist and sometimes golfer, Stephen is kept busy at home with his three children and weekends are spent searching for that perfect park/playground right next to that perfect cafe!
