A History of Growth, Innovation & Happy Clients

Foundational Years (circa 1973-1989)

Inception and Vision: The Munro’s story begins in the early 1970s with Don Munro and Barry Virgo at Wesfarmers Taxation Services. Recognising a potential conflict of interest, they spearheaded the creation of an independent accounting firm. Thus, on 1 July 1973, Munro’s was born, marking the start of an extraordinary journey.

Early Growth: Operating initially from Queen Street in Perth, Munro’s quickly gained traction, particularly with farming business and cooperatives. These early years were characterised by a deep understanding of the local business landscape, fostering relationships that were to become the cornerstone of our growth.

Expanding Horizons (circa 1990-2009)

Strategic Acquisitions: A significant milestone was the acquisition of R A Long Rigby & Co in 1989, broadening our client base to include city and metropolitan businesses. This period saw further acquisitions, including Ken Crofts and Portobello, diversifying our services and clientele.

Evolution of Services: As our client base grew, so did our services. We adapted to the evolving needs of our clients, offering more tailored and sophisticated solutions, from tax consulting to comprehensive business advisory services.

Technological Advancements and 
Global Reach (circa 2010-2023)

Embracing Technology: As technology has evolved, Munro’s has integrated advanced systems – from the introduction of computers in the early years of Munro’s, to later adoption of smartboards, digital client interfaces and AI. This continuing transformation enables us to offer more efficient, secure, and convenient services; always focusing on what brings the most value to you.

Global Clientele: Our reach has extended beyond Western Australia, attracting clients from across Australia and internationally. This expansion has enriched our expertise and allowed us to offer a global perspective to our local and international clients.

A Milestone of Client Satisfaction: 
Over 100 5-Star Reviews (circa 2019-2023)

Achieving Recognition: In the late 2010s, a remarkable trend emerged – our clients began sharing their experiences with Munro’s through Google reviews. Within a short period, Munro’s reached a significant milestone, collecting over 100 5-star Google reviews (an achievement only achieved by 63 of 4,300 (1.5%) Australian accounting firms based on an assessment we conducted in December 2023).

Our Promise, Your Experience: These reviews are not just numbers; they are a reflection of our brand promise – to be the professional problem solvers you can rely on. They are a story of a problem solved, a business supported and a relationship strengthened. They reinforce our position as a firm that not only understands your business needs but also cares deeply about your success.

The Munro's Culture: Relationships and Results (a constant)

People at the Core: At the heart of Munro’s are our people – a team dedicated to intellectual growth, client service and strong relationships. We celebrate this spirit through regular social events, fostering a culture of camaraderie and mutual respect.

Munro's Today and Tomorrow (circa 2023 onwards)

50 Years of Munro’s: Our 50th-anniversary function was not just a celebration of our past but a testament to our enduring commitment to growth, innovation and client service.

Your Partner in Success: Our current office on Fitzgerald Street is more than a location; it’s a hub of expertise and solutions driven by your needs. With our latest website launched in 2024, we continue to be your professional problem solvers, trusted confidants and savvy advisors delivering on our promise to solve whatever simple or complex issue you face.

    Crypto trading is a new thing and I believe, just like many others I had made lots of mistakes not knowing that trading Crypto is a taxable event. Lucky, there is someone knowledgeable about this matter.

    Great education and support in this challenging time I have received from Drew the man!

    The level of communication is top, accurate and precise. They put their heart into the work to help out their client. Highly recommend if you are seeking a Crypto tax return service.

    Thanks Drew the man and Michael.”

  • ★★★★★ — Fay & Steve

    Our Munro’s Experience began approximately 38/40 years ago. Steve’s parents were already customers of Munros, in particular Barry Virgo, and we followed suit.

    For the first couple of years we had several changes of Accountants at Munro’s (we always got the newbies and had to ‘train them up’ to know how to get the best deal from the Tax Office for farmers. We became fed up of this system. Our last newbie was Simon Strawbridge. Well, we got him “trained up right proper” then they wanted to give us the next new one, but we stated we weren’t changing.

    Today, Simon is still our go to man. Whilst we understand there have been many very efficient people working in the background on our business affairs, for which we thank them sincerely, we have always maintained our professional relationship with Simon.

    We have been through some big business changes in our farming adventures over these past 40 odd years, and the advice, help and professional assistance has been 100%. At times we didn’t know who to trust to give us the best business advice and we were fortunate to be able to lean on Simon’s vast knowledge to help us make these decisions.

    Our working partnership of having our taxation needs, investment portfolios, wills, etc. linked in with Munros and the great staff has been successful.

    Munro’s is delivering excellent results for me. My initial engagement was a complex situation comprising of many years of outstanding returns in both the traditional and cryptocurrency space. Drew, Sanjay and Saul were able to rise to the challenge and managed the whole process including preparation, lodgement and dealing directly with the ATO. They have always been friendly, responsive, diligent and provide actionable advice based on observations they have made from my data and by also understanding my personal goals and objectives.

    I am confident I have the right team by my side with Munro’s and I highly recommend Munro’s to anyone looking for top quality service and advice.

    Congratulations Munro’s on 50 years. I think my father must have been one of Donald’s and Barry’s earliest clients. Their names were ever present around the breakfast table when I was hopping on a school bus. I reflected with Christine a few months ago that the most important people in life were my family, my accountants, my GP and and Gough Whitlam. In no particluar order. (Why Gough Whitlam? He gave me a free university education and stopped the Vietnam ballot a year before it was my turn. And I have never voted labor). Thanks to Ian, Melissa, Christine, Noeline and Rama. Ever professional.

    5 Stars from Don. I can’t thank Drew and Brian enough for dealing with my very complex history across multiple years of cryptocurrency trading. This has been across many exchanges, wallets, and my Dash Masternode history also. Drew and Brian have been flawless when fielding my various questions across the months it has taken to work through my complex case load.
    Based in Sydney, I got into cryptocurrency in 2013, and it lead me down a trajectory in life I could never have foreseen. Getting this tax aspect of it up to date will take a layer of stress off my back.

    I highly recommend Munro’s, Perth.

    At HiscoNFE we use Munro’s for all of our tax and accounting advice and we are always impressed with the quality of their service. The team at Munro’s is extremely knowledgeable, professional, helpful and affordable and Drew in particular is a guru when it comes to anything that involves tax. On the rare occasion where Simon has suggested we get a second opinion for a complex tax matter, the Munro’s advice has always been proven to be spot on! We highly recommend the team at Munro’s and we are very grateful for their support over the last 10 years. Sincere thanks from the owners at HiscoNFE!
