Our people

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.
