About Us

Quinn & Associates have been selling accounting practices for over 40 years and have been a dominant player in this sector throughout Australia. We have established a sound reputation and our strength of expertise in the marketplace is widely known.

If you are contemplating selling your practice to either retire or to move on to another chapter in your career, we can answer all of your questions about the prices being achieved, handover periods, your staff and premises.

We know the state of the market and have a ready pool of purchasers and/or know who to approach as a potential purchaser for your particular practice. Overall our focus is on finding the right purchaser who will be a good fit with your clients and your staff.

We handle all of the negotiations, terms and conditions of sale, due diligence, finance approvals and proactively manage the project through to completion. We put in the hours so that you don’t have to and can instead focus on running your practice. We can execute a sale within 3 months in a major city and usually within 6 months in a smaller town.

If you are contemplating the acquisition of a practice for the first time, we have the expertise to advise and guide you. We want every acquisition to be successful and try to ensure that we find the right practice for your purposes. We particularly go out of our way to assist first time purchasers. Maybe that is why we have continued to be successful for almost 40years.

Quinn & Associates are fully licenced to operate in all Australian States & Territories.
