Fiona Ettles


Fiona is enthusiastic about informing and reassuring clients of their financial position, be it in regard to the value of their businesses, or their tax returns.

She enjoys working with clients to understand their problems, consider solutions and implement plans to better their lives, whether this be in the short or long term.

Fiona started at Accru Hobart in 2009 as an undergraduate, completing university part time while working full time. This provided her with a solid grounding in the basics of small business and individual tax. Following this she moved on to working on the Medico client base and Business Valuations. Fiona enjoys building relationships with her clients and tailoring advice to their understanding. She prides herself on being able to communicate clearly with clients of varying professions, whether they be tow truck drivers, or doctors and other professionals. If you need clarity in understanding your situation or tax obligations,  Fiona will work with you until you truly do, and therefore feel confident in moving forward.

Fiona works closely with the Business Valuation and Advisory team, assisting clients to understand the value of their business, analyse a potential business purchase, and successfully plan their exit from the business, be it via a sale or bringing in other shareholders.

Courtney Telega


Courtney is passionate about providing financial peace of mind to her clients and she loves working with business owners who are passionate about their product and business too.

She seeks to discover her clients’ true long-term aspirations – both business and personal – then help to develop long-term strategies, and manageable, short-term goals and actions to achieve their ambitions.

Having started at Accru in 2007, Courtney has developed broad tax and accounting knowledge. One of her core strengths is providing end-to-end tax and accounting support to small-to-medium sized businesses with a high focus on driving profitability and value.

In recent years, Courtney has specialised in valuing businesses, both local and interstate. She has been recognized by the ICAA as a Business Valuation Specialist, and together with Tim Lane, has built strong valuations capabilities for the financial services sector.


Courtney’s expertise and professional network ensures her clients get the most out of the valuations process, particularly those needing a valuation for due diligence, family law, performance enhancement, succession planning or insurance purposes.

Courtney is always open to new experiences. In 2013, she took the opportunity to work with Accru’s affiliate firm in Washington DC, gaining valuable experience with large corporate clients and strengthening her knowledge of US taxes.
