Atticus Business Accountants Director May McGarva is a chartered accountant with over 20 years’ industry experience. Her industry and peer recognised achievements include becoming a principal at one of Toowoomba’s leading accounting firms at the age of 30, being nominated for the Telstra Business Women’s awards and placing as a finalist in the AIM Management Excellence Awards.
Since May established Atticus Business Accountants in 2016, she’s been intent on offering Toowoomba businesses and individuals a fresh approach to accounting services. She has assembled an outstanding team, which just happens to be all-female, that shares her dedication to providing exceptional service and personalised, expert advice.
For May, it’s all about supporting businesses and individuals to thrive, and Toowoomba and the Darling Downs to flourish. A commitment May also fosters through the firms’ active support of local charities and organisations, and her personal involvement as a member of both the Zonta Toowoomba Garden City Board and the Breakaway Toowoomba Board.
When she’s not at work May likes to recharge by cooking or checking out the newest cafes and restaurants in town. She’s a regular at Toowoomba’s Park Run and loves to participate in community events.
If you know May, you’ll know she has a quote for any situation. One of her all-time favourites is a great reminder that it’s never too late to take control of your financial future: The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago. The second best time is now. – Chinese proverb.
