Gemma Heaney B.Com CPA STS
I have been in public practice since my Career began in 2006. I began my accounting journey as a Graduate Accountant at a firm in Fremantle.
It is whilst working here that I finished my degree at Murdoch University with a Bachelor of Commerce and a Minor in Business Law. I then went on to a mid-tier firm in Mandurah where I worked as a Business Services Manager. It is there I completed my studies to become a CPA. In my previous positions, I have worked with an extensive range of businesses in various industries to achieve their compliance needs. My experience has also involved setting up many medical practices and working closely with General practitioners. I am genuinely interested in helping clients achieve their goals through dependable and timely accounting advice. I also extremely enjoy and have 10 years’ experience completing financial accounts and tax returns for self-managed superannuation funds.
With 12 years' experience working in boutique through to mid-tier firms, both here and in Queensland, I have had the opportunity to work with and advise a diverse range of clients. This has allowed me to advise on a variety of tax matters, including GST, Capital Gains Tax, Personal Services Income, and more.
What I enjoy most about accounting is delivering the best outcomes for clients in terms of tax, value, and business advice. I look forward to working with the HBG team on achieving these results for our clients, and becoming more involved in the local business community.

With over a decade of experience in working in a medium size practice I have worked with a diverse client base including but not limited to an extensive involvement with Self-Managed Superannuation Funds. Other areas of interest include Medical Practices, the Agricultural and Construction Industries and many different small to large size enterprises. My focus with clients has always been to work with them to drive the right accounting outcomes that ultimately improves their overall business.
I absolutely love working with our vibrant team at HBG Tax and Accounting and look forward to many more years ahead working with new clients to deliver innovative accounting practices to drive their businesses forward.
I moved to Perth from India to study Masters of Professional Accounting in 2015. After completing my degree from Edith Cowan University I began working as an Assistant accountant in a local firm. I strive to deliver to the best of my abilities and develop great client relationships. I began working at HBG in Feb 2020 and I am grateful to Gemma and the amazing team for being my support. Outside of work I enjoy reading books, spend time with my family and love horse riding.
Under Graduate Accountant
I joined HBG in October 2019, working part time whilst still studying. I have been interested in tax since I started my degree at Curtin University, and since joining the firm I have been able to expand my knowledge and develop my skills in the area. I am excited to be part of a great team and to be working for a local firm which cares about its clients.
I joined Heaney Business Group in July 2020 after completing my degree at Curtin University. I studied Accounting and Finance – and have a strong interest in accounting and taxation, although I’ve only been with HBG for a short period of time I’m already enjoying my role and I am excited to expand my knowledge and grow with a local firm that values customer service.
Client Services Coordinator
I commenced working as the Client Services Coordinator with the HBG Team in July 2020. My professional background began in Customer Services, but within the last decade I quickly progressed into Business Managerial roles in both the private enterprise and Local Government sectors. Having grown up in the area I am excited to be a part of a local firm who is passionate about providing a high level of service & developing strong relationships with its clients.
I have worked in Administration positions for the last 7 years in varied roles, mainly within Community Services. I began working at HBG in August 2018 and it is awesome to be working with a small local firm with amazing hard working staff. My goal is to be accommodating and deliver great customer service to all our clients and to be as helpful as I can.
