We have over 100 years experience serving the New England and North West.
Forsyths commenced operations in Armidale in 1921 trading as WS Forsyth & Co. For almost sixty years WS Forsyth & Co remained a
family operated business.
In 1980, the last family member, WR Forsyth retired and a merger took place with local accounting firm, Rice and Kachel. After the merger, the company adopted the name Forsyths.
In 1991 Forsyths merged with the Tamworth KPMG office and in 1992 merged with Hall Done, creating an organisation of over 50 people. Forsyths committed to presenting clients with a full range of high quality, personal, business and financial advisory services.
In February 2003, the Coonabarabran office of a Sydney based firm, Stafford & Partners, joined the Forsyths Group and in July 2003 the firm purchased the Ormiston & Mason client base in Gunnedah.
In July 2008, the firm acquired the business of Kim Collins & Associates in Tamworth and in July 2012 merged with the Gunnedah firm, Paul & Brett Services. Most recently, in July 2020, there was another successful Tamworth merger with Edwards O’Connor, creating today’s business which has over 130 team members.
In recent years, we have expanded our knowledge in the specialised areas of financial advisory, superannuation and business management as well as developing our core areas of tax, accounting, audit, assurance and insolvency.
Today, Forsyths is one of the largest finance and business advisory firms operating in regional NSW.
