Our group founder Edward Lin established the group's first service entity, CEL Accountants, in 2006 after spending 6 years in public accounting industry with reputable firms like HLB Mann Judd. Although Edward started the business from scratch in a small office with two casual employees, he was determined to lead the firm in becoming one of the top accounting firms and he knew he had to achieve it by having competitive advantages over others.
In late 2007, he obtained registration as a migration agent and founded the group's second service entity, CEL Consulting, (MARN 0746521,
MARN 1175515) providing education and migration consultancy services. He has helped numerous migrants settling in Australia and many of them became business owners in Australia and clients of CEL Accountants.
With high standard of professional knowledge and experience, Edward built up a good reputation very quickly and leaded to the firm's rapid growth. Two years after foundation of the business, CEL moved to a much bigger office and in 2016, moved to our current headquarter at Upper Mount Gravatt ready for our continuous growth.
With a vision of offering more completed services to our clients, CEL Legal and CEL Realty were founded providing professional legal and real estate related services, and now we are being recognised as CEL Group of Companies.
In February 2019, we incorporated Les Freedman & Co, an accounting practice with 30 years of operating history in Carina Brisbane as an initiation of our plan in establishing our presence in other areas of Brisbane.
"Our business endeavours to serve the community to the best of our capabilities by providing our quality services in ACCOUNTING, TAXATION ADVISORY, MIGRATION/EDUCATION CONSULTING, LEGAL AND REAL ESTATE. With the drive to be at the frontier of our business, we have thus far, with relentless effort, developed and maintained a closely-knitted network of contacts in most industries. This is how we achieved the CEL success."
