40 years of financial services to the region

Capitis Accounting Solutions boasts a proud history dating back to May 1979 when Warren E. Stewart commenced the accountancy business as a sole practitioner in Dimboola.

Capitis is an ancient Latin term that stands for the top of the mountain. It was used to express the pinnacle in financial and wealth success.

The term ‘Capitis’ is a precursor for the financial word we use today, Capital.

Over the years, the business has traded under the name Stewart, Bush & Company, before the formation of Capitis Accounting Solutions in 2006.

Capitis continues to operate with offices in Warracknabeal, Dimboola and Horsham. From its humble beginnings, the business has grown into a leading professional services firm in the Wimmera region, employing 10 professionals (including partners) and two administration staff.

“At Capitis we want you to feel welcome in our friendly and relaxed atmosphere. We have a highly dedicated team of professional and experienced staff who endeavour to provide the highest level of service, for both personal and business clients,” says business partner Simon Dandy.

“We are committed to establishing close partnerships with our clients, so we can understand your unique situation and provide you with a high level of technical expertise and staff members who are committed to helping you succeed,” said Mr Dandy.
