KMT Partners began as a small accounting practice in Adelaide, South Australia, established by Dr Andrew Toth in 1967. A migrant from Hungary, Andrew studied by correspondence to earn his qualifications. He later leased his practice while gaining further experience with PwC in Fiji, before returning to run the practice independently. While other new migrants turned to him as their local business expert and confidante, his clientele grew to attract a broad range of individuals and businesses seeking tax and accounting advice.
During the 1970s, Andrew’s daughter Katalin (Kathy) joined the practice for a short time before working in the tax office. She was drawn back to support her father and took over the business in 1985. Growth continued and, in 2000, Kathy sought support for the practice, creating an equal partnership with Michael Fox. While Kathy would specialise in superannuation, Michael became the firm’s tax expert, both working collaboratively to deliver clever solutions for their clients.
KMT Partners became a recognised and respected accounting firm in Adelaide, known to partner with clients, seeking to understand the whole picture, not just one element of their personal or business affairs.
Family business and a partnering approach have been with us from the beginning. Today, Kathy has transitioned to Chair, while Michael continues to develop and expand our team as Managing Director, with an entrepreneurial business advisor, Noel Lindsay, joining us as a Director. Two principals, Chrisanthe Lekatis and John Lawler, each lead our Business Services and Wealth Advice teams respectively.
Our team at KMT Partners is multigenerational, multicultural, and multi-skilled, all contributing to the creative solutions that ensure your personal and business financial independence and sustainability.
