Our practice areas
Business Advisory and Assurance

Pitchers Partners enables middle market businesses to navigate the complexities of their industries and the wider market by identifying opportunities and risks and recommending solutions. By applying a risk-based audit and review methodology, a thorough understanding of the challenges facing a business is achieved, pinpointing areas where they need expert support, advice and action. 

Assurance engagements can include assisting with the preparation of monthly management accounts, year end reporting, income tax returns and activity statements. We also offer general advice to enable boards of directors, audit committees and business owners to make informed business decisions and bring clarity to day-to-day operations.

Private Business and Family Advisory

Private Business and Family Advisory team members work predominantly with privately run businesses, including family businesses, entrepreneurs and high net worth individuals. Large and small businesses have the comfort of retaining control and decision-making power, knowing that all day-to-day administration and monitoring is being undertaken by a professional and experienced team.

Team members specialise in monthly and quarterly reporting assistance, annual compliance, preparation of management accounting, financial statements, income tax returns and business activity statements. Additional services are offered in forecasting, budgeting, superannuation and investment holding structuring.


Superannuation professionals work with trustees, members and employers in all segments of the industry, including large fund compliance, self-managed funds, administration, employer obligations, member retirement planning and estate planning. 

Pitcher Partners team members are involved in developing super strategies that support and build wealth for retirement while ensuring all regulatory requirements are met and the concessional taxed structure is not compromised.

Wealth Management

Business owners, executives and affluent individuals and families seek informed financial advice to build, grow, protect and manage their wealth. They rely on insightful yet practical recommendations to make the best financial decisions and achieve their financial goals.

Work undertaken by the team is varied and can include strategic wealth management advice, investment planning, strategic asset allocation, investment portfolio management, tax minimisation strategies, retirement and estate planning and personal and business succession insurance.
