The firm was founded in 1989 by Martin & Anne Roughley after Martin left Touche Ross & Co where he had been a partner for 8 years. The establishment of the firm was well supported by Touche Ross with the new firm substantially based on the private company clients that Martin had developed. The name Spry traces back to an antecedent firm of Spry Walker & Co, the Australian arm of Touche Ross, and we hold some of the historical records of antecedent firms whose heritage goes back over 100 years. We still have clients who were served by some of those firms. We are a firm of 6 Directors supported by a large team of professional accountants and other staff.
Being located in the geographical centre of Sydney gives us the opportunity to provide services to clients across the greater Sydney area. Our clients appreciate the intimate knowledge we develop of their business and personal affairs resulting in advice and service which is appropriate for their current situation and yet always looking to future opportunities.
We provide big company service with small company attention – our clients and staff get the best of both worlds.
As a member of the INAA group - a global association of independent accounting firms - Spry Roughley has access to a global resource of firms who can provide specialist business advice and knowledge in any situation should the need arise.
We have an established group of Australian firms that we refer to from time to time to meet local client needs.
