Dear valued customers and partners,
I am counting down the days to my Christmas holiday this year — 8 more days and I can finally reunite with my family and friends in Vietnam! I am pretty sure you are excited about the upcoming festive season too, and I know some of you are busy shopping for presents, planning for a trip domestically or overseas, doing some renovation for the impending Christmas parties, and working to meet some year-end deadlines. For me, Christmas is all about spending time with my family. Running my own business has eaten into my family time during the year, so Christmas is the only time when I can take a complete break from work, rest and rejuvenate in my hometown, and come back refreshed and full of energy for the new year.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank each and every one of you for your support in the past 5 years. Thank you for believing in our business model which prioritises excellence and quality above anything else, thank you for being honest and giving me feedback when I needed them, thank you for nominating us for the various business awards this year. Tailored Accounts has been evolving since we started out in 2009. What began in a shared bedroom is now a business with 10 staff serving more than 140 business clients in Canberra and the region. Our team is now made up of highly qualified accountants, and we will continue to recruit only the best candidates to ensure quality services to our clients.
This year, we are proud to be a finalist in the Telstra Australian Business Awards, Canberra BusinessPoint Awards, as well as the Business Ethnic Awards. I attribute such accolades to my team members, all of whom have worked behind the scenes, co-operated with one another, and have gone the extra mile to serve our clients. If I started this business somewhere else, I wouldn't be sure if I could do as well as I have with Tailored Accounts. Canberra has proven that it is the most liveable city in Australia, and I dare say it's one of the best places to get your start-up off the ground as well.
Our office will close from 24th December 2014 to 4th January 2015. We will re-open on Monday, 5th January 2015.
Till then, I wish you a safe, fun and enjoyable holiday — Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
