Long-term, beneficial relationships


Building long-lasting relationships with our clients is very important to us. Here’s what they have to say:

We have used Van Dyk Newbold for several years now and we have always found their service to be very professional and helpful in all of our taxation and investment decisions.

Jarrad has assisted us with creating and managing our own Self Managed Superannuation Fund, business investment decisions regarding ownership structures, establishment and management of family trusts and advice on many tax related topics including personal, investment and business issues.

Equally importantly, we have found their honesty in dealing with areas outside of their expertise refreshing, and on a couple of occasions they have directed us to more appropriate advisors to assist us, rather than guessing or giving us inaccurate information.
We are very happy with the service and quality of information we receive. If you are looking for honest, reliable service and advice, we would happily suggest you contact them.

Matt & Sonia

Glandore, SA

Our business and personal taxation matters have been handled by Van Dyk Newbold & Co for the past 3 financial years. It is the rapport, manner, professionalism, knowledge and willingness to know our business that I am most impressed with. There are no stones left unturned. We have 2 businesses and the overall knowledge of both the primary production industry and our book-keeping business that make me confident using Van Dyk Newbold & Co.

Our business has been through 2 business structure / ownership changes within the past 3 years. This can often be a daunting process, however, with the help and advice from Jarrad and Van Dyk Newbold & Co the procedure ran smoothly both times. All steps involved in the change were explained clearly so it was easy for our business to carry on without any interruptions or business loss.

We also use the tax planning service offered by Van Dyk Newbold & Co just before the end of every financial year and have found this to be very valuable in our situation and for our business.

I highly recommend Van Dyk Newbold & Co for any taxation, business or planning needs you may require as we have always received professional, timely and relevant advice for any questions we have had.

Crystal Brook, SA

Since changing our accountant five years ago we have been delighted with the friendly service and advice of Van Dyk Newbold & Co. We are constantly amazed at the level of help and knowledge we receive whenever we have a problem, something we have not been able to receive over the previous 30 years that we ran our business!

Jarrad Newbold was involved in the negotiations in a takeover of our business and his advice was pivotal in the meeting we had with the other listed company. We will be putting into practice a succession plan in the coming few years and we look forward to an easy transition with the help of Jarrad.

In every regard the level of service and friendship has exceeded our expectations.

We would like to take this opportunity to extend our sincere thanks and appreciation to Jarrad. The professional and friendly manner in which you and your team work has been invaluable to us on a business and personal level.

Over the years Jarrad has assisted us with business planning and structure, tax planning and consultancy, ownership changes to our private and rental properties and succession planning for the future.

During this time we have found you to always be extremely accessible and prompt in response to our requests and we have always been given professional yet friendly sound advice at all times.

Gawler, SA

We found Van Dyk Newbold & Co to be most informative and helpful in getting us set up in our small business. They are available to answer any questions whether on the phone or by appointment and always respond in a timely manner whilst always being a pleasure to deal with. We would recommend there services to any who ask.

Keep up the good work boys.

Sharyn & Danny

McLaren Vale, SA

We have been associated with Van Dyk Newbold & Co for the past 3 years and were referred to them by friends when we decided to purchase an existing business. They assisted with all financial and legal matters in purchasing the business, making the transition very smooth.

Van Dyk Newbold & Co has assisted us in many ways including tax and superannuation planning and the purchase of company cars. We have used their expertise to turn our business into a very profitable venture.

Both Michael and Jarrad are incredibly helpful. Nothing is too much trouble. We are looking forward to a long and prosperous relationship with Van Dyk Newbold & Co.

Vicki & Lindsay


Michael Van Dyk and his firm have been providing advice to us since 2004. In that time we have maintained a partnership that runs a vineyard, had help with buying and selling investment house’s, setting up a company, structured leasing vehicles, and assistance with a Self Managed Superannuation Funds.

We have enjoyed our relationship with Van Dyk Newbold & Co and learnt much along the way, as well as being sure that our affairs are dealt with correctly. We have always felt that we can discuss exactly where we are with our affairs and have not taken any advice which we have regretted. It has always been sound and worked out.

Simon & Cecelia


We began our association with Van Dyk Newbold & Co several years ago with the auditing of our Trust Account. During this time we have been mainly dealing with Michael (Jarrad we have known for many years!) and he has always provided us with excellent service.

Our trust account audits and all of the associated documentation have been completed in a timely manner and with a minimum of disruption to our office. We are very happy to recommend Van Dyk Newbold & Co’s auditing services.

Focussed on outcomes

Whether you’re in need of help with your long-term financial goals and succession planning, or assistance with your daily business finances, we understand business and strive to achive the best outcomes for you, your family and your business.

Benefits of experience & knowledge

The practice was established by Rob Christopher and previously traded as Robin Christopher & Co. It has operated in both Willunga and McLaren Vale for 3 decades. In May of 2004 Rob transitioned into retirement and handed the reins to the current partners.

Michael and Jarrad previously worked at the same mid sized accounting firm in Adelaide. The move to a southern regional accounting practice suited their backgrounds and skill set with Michael having lived in the south of Adelaide all his life and Jarrad having grown up in the country. The separate and diverse back grounds of the partners allows them to offer a broad range of services whilst maintaining the advantages of a small practice.

Mature, accessible, professional

We endeavor to offer a professional service delivered in a personal way. We understand the pressure businesses and clients are under and recognise the need to respond quickly to clients concerns and problems as they arise. We enjoy working closely with our clients and believe taking time to understand how their businesses operates helps shape the advice we give to be more accurate, relevant and timely.

In a fast paced world where things tend to get blurred we believe two factors differentiate accounting practices and most business in general, these are service and product. Service is about relationships which if you are willing to invest time then so are we. Product in our business is knowledge. We invest heavily in this and are happy to share it with you and our clients.
