Five minutes with Shaun Donaldson, Director of Halpin Partners

  1. What services does your business provide?

We are an accounting firm and we provide the traditional services including financial statement and tax return preparation. What I really love is our advisory services, which help our clients get where they want to go. These include tax planning, management reporting, forecasting and benchmarking along with assistance with refinancing.

  1. How long has your business been running?

We have been operating in Cairns since 2003.

  1. How long have you lived in Cairns?

I moved up from Brisbane with my family 8 years ago and haven’t looked back.

  1. Where is your favourite place in Far North Queensland?

It’s hard to narrow it down to one! It’s difficult to top our beaches on a beautiful spring day (any of them from Port to Mission), the reef on a calm day and outback camping on a clear winter night!

  1. What is your favourite quote?

Not a quote as such but I’m a big believer in the saying, ‘If you keep doing the same thing, you will keep getting the same results’.

  1. Who is someone who inspires you?

Tough question, I draw inspiration from mates and clients who I see tackling adversity and achieving great things.

  1. What do you hope to achieve with your business in 2021?

I’m looking forward to a transition from COVID survival mode to a positive forward-looking position where we get back to working with our clients to grow and improve their businesses into the future.
