Our Story

Chan & Naylor Accountants was established in 1990. Over 27 years as Practicing Accountants both Edward Chan and David Naylor saw the many mistakes people made in using inappropriate structures for their investment properties.   In seeking ways to prevent these errors, they have developed a range of structuring vehicles, that, when used correctly, assist clients in building wealth more successfully and safely.

Chan & Naylor have become one of the country’s leading Accountants for property investors, specialising in structuring, we have nurtured an expertise within the firm that rivals and surpasses some of the largest accountancy firms in Australia.

Edward Chan and David Naylor, have been passionate about helping clients to grow and protect their wealth. This same unbridled passion and commitment is ongoing today, with all Chan & Naylor Partners.
