Who We Are

Jolene Elliott


Theresa Sapatra


Hello. We're TJ Accounting Consultants.

Founded by accounting superstar duo, Jolene Elliott and Theresa Sapatra, Brisbane-based TJ Accounting Consultants was their answer to dry, jargon-saturated accounting firms.

As award-winning Indigenous and LGBTQIA+ business owners, Jolene and Theresa wanted a collaborative approach, where accountants work with clients strategically to get incredible results. And they wanted to do it using language and approaches everyone would understand.  

When they couldn’t find the model firm they wanted, they decided to create it, and TJ Accounting Consultants was born. 

We’re the go-to accountants for small businesses, start-ups and women in business. And we’re passionate about helping our clients navigate the pitfalls and opportunities in the tax and financial space. 

we love them
