Accountants & Advisers to Tasmanians for over 35 years

A short history…

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 in 1992. Ben Coull (Director) joined us in 2013, bringing with him over 20 years of audit and business services experience with a well-established accounting firm in the Launceston region. Matt McConnell (Director) came on board in 2017 with qualifications in Accounting and Financial Planning and 20 years experience in the financial services industry.

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.

Our Community

SPEAK UP Stay ChatTY logo


From March until June 2021 Synectic staff are focusing our efforts on supporting SPEAK UP! Stay ChatTY. Funds raised are received by Relationships Australia Tasmania and will help Stay ChatTY spread the message across the community that it’s OK to not be OK and to seek help when you need it. If you would like to help, donate at any Synectic office, or visit the SPEAK UP! Stay ChatTY website to learn more.

Here are five ways you can get involved:

SPEAK UP: when you aren’t feeling ok or you notice someone else is struggling.

STOP THE STIGMA: help us normalise the conversation by opening up the dialogue when it comes to mental health.

GET HELP: find out what resources are out there and access professional help when you need it.

BE KIND: we get multiple chances each day to act with kindness – take those chances to make a positive impact in your community.

LISTEN: listen actively and without judgement to people who are struggling.
