Our history

Charlton & Associates Accountants was established by the late John George Charlton in 1950.

John Charlton established the firm in Cunnamulla and serviced the Charleville, Cunnamulla, Backall and Thargomindah areas for many years.

In 1963 he moved his family to the Gold Coast and opened the practice in Mermaid Beach while retaining a large proportion of his clients from out west.

The firm continued to grow and John was later joined by Scott Charlton after gaining his Bachelor of Business (Accounting) in 1987. Scott is a registered Tax Agent and Member of the Institute of Public Accountants.

Now the principal accountant at Charlton & Associates Accountants, Scott has continued in the same vein as his father. He has continued to grow the business and cement Charlton & Associates Accountants as a long-standing, highly respected and highly valued accounting firm on the Gold Coast.

Scott loves working with his clients and is passionate about helping them to make the most of their financial situations.
