Mr David Sharp
B. Comm. NSW - Accounting & Business Finance

Chartered Accountant, Director - DFK Richard Hill

David qualified as a Chartered Accountant in 1985. He worked with KPMG (then PriceWaterhouseCoopers), before founding Walker Sharp & Co in 1993, which became part of DFK Richard Hill in 2005. David’s initial training involved auditing different sized companies, from multinationals to small private family companies, in a wide range of industries. His subsequent experience in Business Workouts, assisting financially troubled companies turn their fortunes around, taught David how a company could be changed to operate profitably and how to identify the real value in a business.

In 1997 David started valuing veterinary practices with Jim Martin, in addition to running his accounting and taxation practice. Since then, David has assisted with the valuation of over 500 veterinary practices of all types throughout Australia. David brings first-hand business experience to our valuations, providing a realistic view of the practice, which ultimately will achieve the best result for both buyers and sellers. David is also able to provide additional advice as part of the valuation process, which can assist both buyers and sellers to maximise the benefits from the transaction, both in terms of its tax effectiveness and improvements in profitability.
