Our Story

History

Causbrook & Associates was founded in 2001 with a vision of providing services tailored to the unique objectives and goals of each client. Over the past 19 years we have worked with professionals, small business owners, family groups and listed and unlisted public companies, providing solutions based on a sound understanding of the financial position of each client.

In 2018 we conducted our first major acquisition, partnering with one of the oldest accounting firms in Sydney. With a heritage that can be traced back to the 1930s, Storey Blackwood boasts an enviable legacy. We are very pleased to have them as part of the Causbrook & Associates team.
