The first chapter of our journey began in 2004 when CondonTreasure Accountants was formed. After the first office opened in Roma we gained a reputation as one of the most well known, respected and trusted accounting firms in the area.

Robert Thornthwaite opened the Maroochydore office in 2007, expanding on an already burgeoning reputation for service excellence, coupled with an innovative product offering.

In November 2018 a new chapter was started, as CondonTreasure changed its name to FTA Accountants. This name change reflected a new future for the business. Johan Ferreira and Robert Thornthwaite picked up the baton of goodwill and professional enthusiasm and set the firm off on another leg of our journey.

‘FTA’ stands for Ferreira, Thornthwaite & Associates, but also fits in with our motto ‘Forward Think & Achieve’.

We are proud of the reputation we’ve built as a thriving, modern, forward thinking practice – formed of highly motivated, down to earth professionals who care about you and your needs.


Less Bow Tie. Better Customer ties.

We get it – accountants have a bit of a stuffy image problem. The thing is, at FTA Accountants, you won’t see us wearing suits and ties unless the work occasion demands it. We’re firm believers in the fact that buttoned up suits and ties cut off the circulation to the brain, and we prefer to direct our efforts where it counts – professionalism and our attitude toward accuracy at all times.

 Who said business couldn’t be personal anyway?

Your life and business can change quickly. That’s why we take the time to really get to know you, not just run your numbers. Like knowing that your daughter is headed off to University next year or that you’re looking to retire and hand your business down to your son – because we know that understanding doesn’t happen on paper, and that taking the time to find out what’s important to you makes us better equipped to help.

At FTA Accountants we take the time to get to know you properly because we believe it helps us to help you ‘Forward Think & Achieve’ your goals. By doing that, we can make your business and personal financial targets a reality, and help you get to where you want to be.


Because life is far better when you have the right partner.

Happy Right From The Start

FTA have been our company accountants for some time now and we have been very happy with their services, right from the start.

Their advice has been invaluable over the past few years. The service provided by Johan and the team have been and continues to be, above and beyond.

We recieve friendly reminders of when payments or information is due, to efficient and thorough preparing of company accounts.

They offer a very professional as well as friendly hands on approach and are always just a phone call away.

Support Beyond Expectations

We have used FTA for the past 10 years. Whilst both operating our own small businesses, we could not have managed without the advice and invaluable support from Robert and the team.

With a comprehensive suite of services to offer, Robert and the team have provided us with excellent accounting and SMSF services over the years. So much so that the accumulation of our wealth has truly delighted us beyond our expectations.

We do not hesitate to recommend their services as personal or business accountants and we genuinely believe they go above and beyond for their clients.

Extremely Helpful In All Aspects

I am delighted to be able to let others know what a great group of people I have met during the time I have been with Robert and the team.

They have been extremely helpful in all aspects of my accounting needs and have always led me to the right path. I would like to thank all of the team for everything they do so diligently for those around them.

Completely Satisfied

I have been referring my family members, friends and colleagues to FTA Accountants Pty Ltd for almost 10 years now for their finance needs.

I would rate the organisation very highly on tax knowledge, response to my tax needs and questions, and my comfort level with sharing and dealing with such matters.

I can unreservedly recommend Johan Ferreira and the rest of the team at FTA Accountants. I have no doubt you will be completely satisfied with their services and their pricing.
