“CQ Friendly Society Ltd has been happily utilising the services of KDF Accountants (aka Katrina Olsson) for over 10 years, – towards the preparation of the society’s annual financial report (for full public audit), and subsequent tax return. Being, a community owned, mutual organisation, causes both the financial report and tax returns to be very detailed and complex. Katrina has proved herself to be both thoroughly competent and prepared to go that “one step further”, to ensuring that the Friendly Society is always up to date with the latest financial advice and tax rulings.”

“It is a pleasure to recommend Katrina Olsson, who has been looking after my taxes for approximately 10 years . During this time I have found her very knowledgeable and, most of all, very reliable in her advice and execution.”
Astrid Hamann, Sydney
“Once per year I have a ‘date’ that I look forward to, it is with Katrina Olsson of KDF Accountants. We’ve been ‘catching up’ for the last 6 years. Our annual get together involves a brief friendly chat and then down to business we get!
Death and taxes they say, unfortunately something that we can’t avoid, what was in the past a nerve racking experience is now ‘simple and painless’.
Katrina knows her stuff! My tax ‘affairs’ have never been in better order, I have always received prompt and efficient service, good, sound investment advice and most importantly, an annual ‘ Taxation Return’.
I have no hesitation in recommending KDF Accountants, if you are looking for a knowledgeable, professional accountant that sees you and your ‘financials’ as an individual and not just a number then you can’t go past Katrina and her team at KDF Accountants.
A good accountant is like a finding a good doctor. You need a person who you can trust and confide in. You need to be confident in the advice they give you and most importantly you need them to know you, your financial situation and provide you the right advice at the right time.
You will not regret moving your financial affairs over to KDF Accountants for in time, you too will be like me and look forward to your ‘date’ with Katrina at KDF Accountants!”

“My husband and I have known and had the benefit of the services of Katrina for quite a number of years, initially during her time with Benson & Olsson and now in her new exciting venture of KDF Accountants. Katrina has been very helpful to us with our personal income tax needs, helping us look at “the bigger picture” as we have rearranged our affairs.
We eventually made the decision to move our affairs into a Trust structure with a corporate trustee. Not having experience with setting up a business structure previously, we found the assistance provided by Katrina Olsson and her team to be of great assistance. Since the time of our set up in 2006, Katrina and her team have guided us through myriad processes which have had to be undertaken to satisfy various compliance and reporting obligations.
In concert with the set up of our Trust, we also set up our own Self Managed Super Fund. This was a very big step with much that we had to learn in order to manage the fund ourselves, as we do, with the assistance of KDF Accountants. Whilst legislation continues to be introduced to make the role of SMSF Trustees ever changing and challenging, we have found that we can rely on Katrina and her team at KDF Accountants to ensure that we comply with our responsibilities and meet the requirements of our independent auditor each year.
We wish Katrina and her team the very best now and for the future and would be happy to recommend their services to any interested party.”

“Katrina and her staff have been the accountancy service we have been looking for, for years. We have had 2 very negative experiences, (putting it mildly) with other accountants. We have a Real Estate business and needed someone we could trust, talk to about our situation, help us with future plans, and talk us through, new regulations or changes in the system. KDF accountants has done all this and more for us.
They have taken us from a dark, confused, book keeping system, to an easy workable one, with smiles on their faces. We know they must have beeen so frustrated, with the mess our books were in from the previous bad advice we were given by other firms, yet they met us at each meeting with smiles and friendly service.
We are pleased to take this chance to recommend and thank the staff at KDF Accountants for their tireless patience and competence. As most business people know, there are too much red tape and tax regulations for us to keep up with. It is vital to any business, to have a competent, trustworthy accountant to keep us on track.
Katrina and the staff at KDF Accountants are just that and much more.

“The Wedel family have known and dealt with Katrina ever since she started work with Eddie Olsson at Benson & Olsson Accountants many years ago. When she took over the reins from Eddie, we were more than pleased to continue on with her firm. Our farming and grazing business is 360kms from Rockhampton, hence a lot of queries are conducted over the phone. Katrina is always available, early or late to help out with prompt competent advice and efficient services. On occasional queries from the Australian Taxation Office, Katrina has been prepared to go that extra yard without the cost of an extra mile. We feel it is very important to have a good working relationship with your accountant, bank manager etc. In this case, we as a family business look upon Katrina as a family friend and confidante.
I have every confidence in recommending the staff at KDF Accountants to anyone in need of their services.”

“DAY TO DAY CONSTRUCTIONS PTY LTD is very pleased with the service we have received from KDF ACCOUNTANTS. We have worked with Katrina Olsson for the last 4 years and have always found her to be dependable, friendly and professional. KDF’s attention to detail and willingness to listen to our financial needs has been and still is extremely important to our company. Also it has been a great help having someone just a phone call away with extensive knowledge in accounting to explain it in terms we have been able to understand. They have also made suggestions on how to improve our own book keeping skills which has been a great benefit to our company. We would not hesitate to recommend their services to anyone.”

“Our association with Katrina Olsson began way back when she was Ed’s understudy. When the great man retired, we were delighted to have Katrina take over and keep our business and us on the right track. When the Benson & Olsson partnership was dissolved and Katrina branched out on her own, there was no doubt that we would follow her.
The whole team at KDF are just a great bunch of people and it is like catching up with an old friend when we need to call in to see her. We have recommended Katrina to friends previously and would certainly have no doubt in doing so again.
When your figures need counting, you can count on Katrina!!”

Personal, Professional, Punctual.
Katrina Olsson has been our Accountant for approximately 8 years and during this time has provided strategic advice on the overall management of our family affairs. As our business grew, Katrina advice and assistance was instrumental in transforming our partnership, to a Family Trust to accommodate our changing needs and circumstances.
Katrina has also been instrumental assisting with the setting up our self managed superfund and ongoing advice.
Throughout our affiliation, Katrina has always made time to discuss future ventures with our children and with us. Her input is valuable and we take on board the information provided by Katrina to make the best decision possible.
Katrina has an extremely capable and supportive group of staff who have helped us timelessly in completing our financial records and who have assisted us with transferring our records to “Banklink”.
In conclusion, KDF Accountants provide a personal yet professional business and accounting service. We are confident that our relationship will be one that is as successful as it is long lasting.

The reason Trevor and I go to Katrina at KDF Accountants is because she is professional, efficient and up to date on taxation. The advice is always spot on and we feel confident when our tax returns are lodged.
