Amanda Johnson, Director
Amanda has provided professional taxation and accounting advice for 25 years. This includes tenures with regional and national firms as well as the creation of a business partnership.
Prior to working within her own partnership firm, Amanda managed the Business Advisory Services of a tier-two accounting firm and she managed the tax division of a specialist financial advisors firm in Brisbane.
Along the way, Amanda also gained experience in the finance and investment property sectors. This, coupled with her taxation and accounting experience, has enabled her to take a more strategic approach to her clients’ goals and objectives.
In 2011 she launched AKJ Business Services on the Gold Coast. Amanda’s business objective was to provide a scope-of-services offered by larger firms combined with boutique-sized client service and flexibility.
AKJ Business Services has never advertised. Growth has come through steady referrals. In this way, growth hasn’t compromised personalised and attentive service. This has been evidenced by the longevity of client-relationships; some lasting over 20-years.
This says much about the quality of service, and the passion of the service provider.
Amanda is a CPA, a Fellow of the Institute of Public Accountants and a member of the Australian Institute of Management.
Amanda is on the board of three non-profit organisations, Radfly Inc OHANA for Youth and Arcadia College. These organisations provide support and assistance to the youth of the Gold Coast
