Malcolm Chilman - Sunshine Coast Accountant

Malcolm Chilman

Tax Agent & Qualified Accountant

With a wealth of knowledge and a long list of qualifications, the first thing Malcolm is often asked by new clients is whether he appears in any of his advertising. So let’s start by clearing that one up – the answer is no!

Malcolm leaves the modelling to the professionals, choosing instead to focus on his expertise – finding the best accounting and tax solutions for micro, small and medium businesses.

Malcolm started his accounting career working for Ronald Schwartz Chartered Accountant in Sydney. Since then, he has worked in commerce and held the position of Financial Controller for a number of successful and well-known organisations.

In 2002, Malcolm brought this experience to the Sunshine Coast, establishing Bottom Line Control. With the ability and knowledge to quickly understand his client’s business and get to the bottom of their accounting requirements, Malcolm has established Bottom Line Control as Coolum’s leading accounting firm with a large and loyal customer base.
