Approach Philosophy

At Lowrys we endeavour from the very beginning, to establish strong personal links with clients so an atmosphere of trust can be developed, particularly in relation to remote area clients. We see a need for education and training being just as important as compliance issues when we conduct audits or assist in other financial management and administrative areas.

Please see the headings below to see more detailed descriptions of our approaches to various specific issues and categories of client.

Services to Local Government 

Prior to establishment of the seven (Local Government) Super Shires, Lowrys was responsible for the auditing of various Community Government Councils throughout the Territory. We are familiar with the background of the Local Government Act and Regulations as they relate to the new Shires and their methods of operation. Lowrys Accountants is the appointed auditors for the Victoria Daly Shire Council; one of the seven Super Shires mentioned above.  

Working with Remote Communities

Lowrys Accountants understands the importance of ensuring that all staff members, and especially those involved in engagements with Aboriginal organisations, have received cultural training. This assists us to better understand the needs of the organisations we are dealing with and the people who may be affected by the work we complete.

Prior to visiting communities we provide a written summary of proposed activities, timing and details of which specific records are required for inspection. This ensures communities are prepared for our visits and also that such visits do not clash with cultural or other local activities. We have a long history of successfully working with and on Aboriginal Communities. We have assisted one Corporation with financial services since 2011 and still continue today.
