OUR HISTORY

Pollen St, Thames 1950s/60s, near corner of Walter St (postcard)

TRUSTED SINCE 1959

Ken Dalzell started WK Dalzell Chartered Accountants in Thames in 1959. The first office was in Central Chambers, Pollen Street, Thames. His wife Gay was his typist/receptionist.

 

In 1964 after completing high school his son Geoff joined the firm, the same year the office moved to its present location; Thames Harness Racing Club Arcade, 617 Pollen Street.

OUR HISTORY continued

Geoff completed his studies in 1976 and qualified as a chartered secretary. He purchased the practice from his father on 1 April 1977, under the new name Geoff Dalzell Chartered Secretary.
 

Geoff updated the practice name to Geoff Dalzell & Associates Ltd in March 2000.

 

Frieda Howlett started working for Geoff in 1998 and graduated with a bachelor of Business in Accountancy via correspondence in 2008..
 

After working for Geoff for 16 years, Frieda purchased the practice on 1 April 2014 when Geoff decided it was time to ‘semi’ retire.
 

The practice was renamed to Howlett Dalzell Accountancy Services Ltd, HDAS for short 😉.

 

Geoff and Frieda still work together within the Thames accountant practice, just now under different roles, Frieda as owner and Geoff as a sub-contractor/advisor.
