The Capo & Co Story

Opening its doors in 1977, Capo & Co was founded by Guy Capolingua.

Operating from Cambridge St, West Leederville, the firm began with a team of one and grew its client base from nothing. Small family-run corner stores, tradesmen and farmers, among others, needed accounting help and tax returns completed. Many of these businesses flourished and as they grew, so too Capo & Co grew.

Integrity and personalised service were the cornerstones of the accounting practice’s growth and Capo & Co built a strong reputation.

Fast forward to 2018, the firm has a dozen employees and a large and varied client base. Guy’s son Anthony now has responsibility for the daily running of the firm, allowing Guy to focus on his client work and play the occasional game of golf.

Capo & Co recognise that small and medium-sized businesses have moved increasingly online and adopted technologically integrated accounting systems. Capo & Co’s Director group recognise that the business landscape has changed and that the challenge is to continue to evolve to meet these changes.

Despite being a modern firm and vehemently advocating the need for clients to embrace technology, Capo & Co is proud of its 40+ year heritage and remains old fashioned in its commitment and dedication to client service.
