Your success is our business
Who are Radar?
We are a warm and welcoming team with multiple degrees in accounting and commerce. While Nicole knows her stuff inside and out, she isn’t too proud to welcome you into her home, make you a cuppa and entertain your children. Nicole’s team consists of accountants Aimee Steele and Jacinda Swain, and office manager Casey Perham.
Radar is Byford-based geographically but Nicole and her team work for clients from Bunbury to Brisbane and beyond. With their cloud-based accounting software, you can be anywhere in the country and still be able to chat on the phone as you review your financials together, simultaneously.
Not just another tax return
Radar Accounting isn’t just about numbers. Nicole takes an active interest in individuals and their businesses and it’s the personal feel that brings clients back time and time again. Radar knows relationships are key.
B Com, AIPA AFA – Director / Principal Accountant
Nicole has always had a passion for numbers and decided to pursue a degree majoring in accounting and taxation. During her first year at uni, she went to the local corner store accountant near home and volunteered for work experience, which turned out to be a great move long term. Studying full time and working three days a week plus full time holiday hours really set Nicole up with hands-on experience.
Towards the end of her degree, Nicole moved into management accounting and continued in that vein for the next couple of years, which although a great experience, helped Nicole realise her interest really lies in personal and tax accounting. From the corner accountant to firms in the CBD, Nicole’s ten years of broad-range accounting experience flows through to her current clients.
When she isn’t reading the latest tax legislation or helping prepare financials, you can find Nicole enjoying time with her family or cooking up a storm in the kitchen – her favourite way to unwind. Unless there’s a Dockers game on, in which case you’ll likely hear passionate cheering. As Dockers members, Nicole and sons can be spotted every second week in the purple wave of people. Go Dockers!

The reason behind Radar
Nicole decided to leave a corporate city-based firm and establish Radar so that she could be available for her two small children. ‘My kids are my reason,’ she says. Because of their birth, Radar was born and she loves the dual ability to focus on her career and be there for the children.
Radar Accounting are a team of mums supporting each other and their families. We all understand how important it is to have a solid support network, and we do our best to extend that to our clients by providing a family friendly environment coupled with accounting excellence.
A focus on individuals
The personal feel Nicole has created is what keeps clients coming back time and time again but Radar’s real testament comes from client referrals, which are the mainstay of Radar’s business. The Radar team believe relationships are key – accounting isn’t just about returns and goodbyes – and we love getting to know our clients as individuals, not just a once a year tax appointment.
