Congratulations to our finance and accounting partners
Sammut Bulow Bennett Partners who were named in the AFR’s Top 100 Australian Accounting Firms. This is recognition of the invaluable support and services you provide to clients like us.It's been a challenging year for business, and in many ways, we are no different to other industries who have navigated uncertain times.

When things change, you adapt. If you drop the ball, you pick it up and keep running. You continue working, learning and above all strive for excellence in your chosen field.

Today we learned that our firm, Sammut Bulow Bennett Partners has made the AFR Top 100 Australian Accounting Firms, coming in at #50.

This would not be possible without our dedicated team who worked hard and have risen to meet the many challenges of 2020 - thank you.

We'd also like to thank our valued clients, who we have continued to work closely with over the long days and in particular acknowledge your patience at times as we worked to keep up with legislation changes, stimulus packages and all the other daily challenges many businesses regularly deal with.

Anyway...cheers!

Martin, Brad & Danny

Look at this beauty! Jun Matsui’s photo of the southern cassowary was the winner of the Bird Portrait category in the 2020 BirdLife Australia Photography Awards.  With its brilliant blue and purple head and neck, red wattles, amber eyes and long eyelashes, the endangered southern cassowary can only be found in the lush rainforest of the Wet Tropics in Far North Queensland.  So this majestic bird has a chance to survive, we’ve been purchasing, protecting and revegetating vital cassowary habitat in partnership with C4 Community for Coastal and Cassowary Conservation, Rainforest Rescue Greenfleet @terrainWT and Queensland Environment Department  #qtfn #biodiversityisourbusiness #queenslandwildlife #cassowaryconservation

QTFN’s Christina Cork and Felicity Shapland, last week joined over 31 volunteers from C4 and the Tully and Mission Beach communities at a Community Planting Day at Gurrbum Reserve.  More than 200 native trees and plant species were planted, adding to the more than 6,000 trees that have already been planted since QTFN and C4 joined forces to purchase the property last year and secure vital habitat for the endangered southern cassowary.  Once revegetated, Gurrbum Reserve will form a critical movement corridor for the cassowary and other native species between Japoon National Park, Tully Gorge National Park and the Walter Hill Range Conservation Park.  So proud to be part of this project in partnership with C4 - Community for Coastal and Cassowary Conservation- Box 132 MissionBeach, Queensland Environment Department, Greenfleet, Terrain NRM  brettacorp inc. and Queensland National Parks
