Who we are

At the Institute of Public Accountants it is important to us that our members don’t feel like a number. With that in mind, we have focused our attention on providing a range of resources and products to really help and support. We don’t use call centers, our CEO personally contacts new members and we keep mental health at our forefront with education resources and our efforts in supporting The Male Hug just to name a few. 


And the numbers speak for themselves: over 55% of our members have been with us for over 10 years.


And our numbers continue to grow each year. 


What Matters to Us 

Supporting small business is something that has always been of utmost importance to the IPA and our members. We know that they have long been the backbone of our economy and have struggled more than most in recent times. We have been committed to helping our members guide and support their small business clients through troubling times, and many local Australian businesses have come to rely on having an IPA member by their side, now, more than ever.

What We Do
