We’ve helped grow, and grown with, some of WA’s most well-known businesses for over 25 years.

DFK Gooding Partners was founded in 1998 by a small team of founding partners galvanised with the vision of building a boutique accounting firm on a foundation of high quality, personalised financial and advisory services. The key objective was to establish long-term partnerships with clients by closely aligning shared interests, and building opportunities for each party to value-add.

We believe the best way to get to know our clients is through their palate.

It’s our priority to get to know you personally, before we know and understand your businesses or personal finances. This commitment to a relationship orientated, value based approach to service is why 2023 marks our 25th year of business. All our client relationships are centered around trust built from integrity, confidentiality, open communication and mutual respect.

Our focus is providing SMEs and high net worth individuals with a range of tailored compliance, advisory and wealth solutions.

As one of the few Perth owned and operated mid-tier firms, we have a deep knowledge of the local business landscape.

We believe the WA economy is the most exciting and most promising in Australia. Staying locally owned and operated means we operate from a deep understanding of the local business landscape, and continued focus on local success stories. We’re invested in the growth of new businesses within our state through our partnerships with Plus Eight and FIPWA, and also support a number of charities and not for profits within WA.

We are team of over 40 passionate, driven and client focused individuals, led by a group of highly experienced partners and senior team.

DFK Gooding Partners has five Partners, with each bringing varied expertise to our service offerings. Across our partners and management team, our careers have been built from prior experience within the Big 4 and leading boutique firms before arriving at DFK Gooding Partners.
