Freshness, life and vitality – what we want our business to bring to the world.
Why Green Bean?
Why did we choose the name “Green Bean Accountants?”
We’ll tell you why!
- Because green is the colour of freshness, life and vitality – which is what we bring to our business and what we want our business to bring to the world. We aren’t stuffy or formal. And we embrace innovations such as cloud-based services, Skype meetings, electronic submission and file sharing.
- Because we are passionate about sustainability. We’ve worked hard to create a green work environment. Our office furniture is recycled and upcycled second-hand furniture, we aim to use energy efficient appliances wherever possible, we minimise waste with recycling and have paperless tax service options for likeminded clients.
- Because we are “not your average bean counters”! We are friendly, relationship-focused, fun and easy to talk to.
Who We Are
Founders of Green Bean Accountants, Teresia Lindberg and Fredrik Gustafsson, created Green Bean from a mutual interest in sustainable business, work/life balance, and the drive to deliver a reputable accounting service that people continually recommend.
Fredrik and Teresia came to Australia from Sweden to study a number of years ago and loved Perth so much they decided to make their life here together. They are locals in the City of Cockburn and love the lifestyle, environment and people in their community.
Teresia (Tess) is the Principal Accountant. She holds a Bachelor of Commerce with a major in Professional Accounting and a minor in Management. She is a Certified Practising Accountant who has been working in the industry since 2008, and is accomplished in all major accounting software applications. Teresia takes a friendly, personable approach to providing highly qualified and experienced professional tax services.
“I like to get to know my clients because when you know someone, you understand their needs more fully. For me, the goal is always to ensure my client claims everything they are entitled to. I have a keen eye for detail and will always double and triple check everything. I need to be able to sleep well at night, so my professional goal is to maximise my client’s tax effectiveness and legal compliance.”
Fredrik (Fred) is the Office Manager for Green Bean. He holds a Bachelor degree in Asian Studies and is a qualified Library Technician, so his skillset in the business is administrative excellence and customer service skills.
“I have worked in a local library for several years so I am lucky enough to know many people in the local community. I am a people person, very interested in what people need and how I can help them. My focus is on providing the best service possible by running a tight administrative ship and ensuring our clients achieve top level customer satisfaction.”
