At Fairway Group our team is devoted, enthusiastic and professional. We believe in our core values to provide each of our clients with the best advice personally tailored to specific needs. We differ to many other practices – calls are answered by qualified accountants, fees are charge based on pre-determined set rates rather than timesheets and we make every endeavor to keep our practice green by going as near to paperless as possible in an industry that is typically paper-based and by making as many environmentally conscious choices in our office as possible.
