Accountants & advisers to Tasmanians for over 30 years

Where we started…

Synectic was formed from the restructure of Atkinson Gibson in 2004 and traces its origins in Tasmania to 1979. Gareth Atkins (Director) started his career with us as a trainee accountant at Atkinson Gibson, in 1992. Ben Coull (Director) joined us in 2013, bringing with him over 20 years of experience with a well-established accounting firm in the Northern Tasmanian region.

Proudly Tasmanian, Synectic has its roots in the traditions of the accounting profession handed down through its long history. However, as a modern and growing firm, we continually embrace innovation with an inspired and creative team. Our industry has seen huge changes over the last two decades, as have the needs and expectations of our clients and staff. The Synectic team reflect these changes in the quality and range of our services, the relationships we maintain with our clients, staff and community and our investment in industry leading work practices and technology.

‘Synectic’ is the name under which our accountants and advisers come together to deliver creative yet practical solutions to our clients.

Our Values

What we strive for…

A growing firm with a history of over 30 years, we maintain client-centric and team-focused values,
while delivering results that compare with those of the state’s major accounting and advisory firms.


Through our investment in people, systems, processes and technology we consistently deliver the highest standard of outcomes without compromising value. Our people enthusiastically push beyond the role of traditional accountants and advisers and take pride in being at the leading edge of their profession.

Objectivity & Professionalism

We expect high standards of conduct and moral behaviour, acting with fairness and integrity. Our policies and procedures ensure that we maintain our accountability and support our professional outcomes. We never compromise advice with individual bias, self-interest or perception.

Honesty & Integrity

We give straight-forward, pragmatic advice and practical solutions. We operate with openness and transparency. Our clients value our honesty and appreciate that we have the hard conversations; telling them what they need to hear, not just what they want to hear.

Relationships That Last

We are committed to building real and sustainable relationships that deliver mutual prosperity for all stakeholders. Our staff get to know our clients and our directors keep their doors open. While our clients benefit from our technical skills, modern resources and efficiencies, they never feel treated like a number.
