What Client's Say

"Wayne and his team at PJT are still providing me with innovative advice which has given me the confidence to make positive game changing decisions and take my business to the next level."

- Sean Haydock, owner of Crown Hotel Innisfail (Full Testimonial)

"Thanks to Wayne Patten and the team at PJT Accountants & Business Advisors, they helped me restore sanity when all around seemed like it was getting too hard. PJT seemed to know when to press which buttons and what the market was doing before it knew itself. This is evident by the way Hotel Brokers who know Wayne talk about him and ring for advice from time to time. You know you mean something to an advisor when he turns up just days after a fire which wipes out a Bottle Shop at Christmas time! Would your advisor do that for you?"

Rod Henrich, previous owner of Whitebull Tavern, Roma
