Melbourne-based boutique GAP Accountants has joined international player Nexia, lifting its team in Melbourne to over 90 partners and staff.

Operating out of the city’s central business district, Nexia’s Melbourne practice offers its clients a full range of accounting, tax, and business advisory services, as well as support with wealth management.

The addition of GAP Accountants adds two partners and eight staff to Nexia’s headcount, and deepens its capabilities in tax, financial planning, corporate and business advisory, and self-managed super fund services.

Vito Interlandi and Paul Clements, the Joint Managing Partners of Nexia in Melbourne, said the deal is part of the firm’s growth ambition in Victoria.

“We see this merger as an opportunity to grow as a business, which in turn provides our clients with access to more people, more knowledge and confidence that our growth strongly enables shared success,” said Interlandi.

Clements added, “This merger emphasises us putting our words into action. Twelve months ago, when Vito and I stepped into the Managing Partner role, we were both committed to expanding our reach and re-focusing our approach to optimise our position in the market with the aim of becoming a ‘top 10 Victorian firm. This move marks a large step in pursuing that ambition.”

The move will see the two directors of GAP Accountants, Doug Abrahams and Eva Bonner, appointed as partner at Nexia. Abrahams founded the boutique in 2004 following a career at PKF, while Bonner joined the team around a decade ago and climbed the ranks to director level.

The Australian wing of Nexia is part of Nexia International, which has 34,500 staff worldwide.
