FIRM

Carol Kalleske established her Tax & Accounting business in 2001 from the old Shoemaker Store in the hamlet of Greenock.

Already a mother of one with another on the way, Carol offered her services part-time while looking after her growing family.

The clientele doubled its size during the first year in business and with her third child on the way, the business continued to grow at this rate into 2003 tax season.

After continued success & growth over the next few tax seasons Carol's business had outgrown the Old Shoemaker store and her home based working environment.

In 2006 Carol & her Husband Tony purchased the Building next to the old Shoemaker Store with a vision of establishing the Greenock Business Centre, which would be a place to offer a range of business services to Greenock and its surrounding areas.

Carol's accounting practice is now operating from the Greenock Business Centre and has leased one of its rooms to a Financial planner, with opportunities for another business room lease or other visiting professionals to utilise a furnished office.
