Welcome to our client testimonials.

Client testimonials are important to the team at Canny Group. While it’s always nice to hear what you’re doing right in the Geelong community. We are always looking to deliver on our commitment to our clients across all of our Accounting, Advisory and Legal services.

We want to make sure that the values of Canny Group are always in line with the needs and expectations of our clients. What better way to know than to ask our clients directly.

So don’t take our word for the commitment we make to our clients. This is what some of our valued clients had to say…


I was referred to Canny Group via word of mouth when I decided to start my own small business five years ago.  Having worked for many different employers as a physiotherapist for nearly 20 years, I was very nervous setting up my own business.  Mandy’s expertise helped me create my brand, set up my business structure and develop my business plan.  Mandy always responded promptly to all my questions and concerns and has been there for me every step of the way.  My business has grown each year which is partly due to Mandy and her fabulous team!  No question is too silly (and there were many!).  The entire Canny team are professional, approachable and diligent in their approach to their clients needs – thank you!

I have been with Canny since day one!  When founder Stan Canny and I played footy shoulder to shoulder with North Geelong.  Stan, born in the Northern Suburbs, found client uptake in his office in the heart of Geelong too slow, so he resolved “if clients won’t come to me, I’ll go to them” and he set up in Station Street, Norlane and the locals – subbies, retailers, wage and salary earners – began knocking on his door and discovered caring service.  Dealing with tax, legislation and complex regulations etc, Stan ranked people ahead of just paperwork and numbers.  Many have become lifelong friends.  Stan has retired but, for this family based company, right up to date with complex demands made on business, families and individuals, it still sees people and it still cares.  Nothing’s changed.

Russell Neil reliable + quick answers

I always feel like I am a major account, with plenty of time allocated to me when I need it, it’s great to be able to pick up the phone and get reliable and quick answers.

John Will what we are about

We love the staff at Canny Group. They are all very attentive, they have taken it upon themselves to know who we are, what we are about, and have customised their service accordingly.

Leanne Maxwell Krys + Gab have been our saviours!

Our circumstances once Canny Group investigated were far more detrimental than we were ever aware of.  As it turned out the ATO had been trying to contact our prior accountant for 18 months to discuss our debt and not once had he returned their call.  The ATO were literally days away from closing us down and taking legal action.

Canny Group has always been upfront with us; they have restored our faith, our confidence and trust in accountants.  It has been a stressful twelve months, especially at the beginning, but having put the trust and faith in Canny Group, their honesty, returning of phone calls, answering of questions has made dealing with the stress all that much easier.

Leanne Maxwell, Two Tow Transport Pty Ltd

Over the last 28 years, Fran and I have been looked after by the entire Canny Group who have treated us more like part of the family than anything else.  They provide an honourable and reliable service, always going above and beyond the regular means.  We thank you and congratulate you on your success and look forward to continuing our partnership.
