If you’ve stepped into our Osborne Park office recently, you may have noticed a familiar face. Rewind five years ago before Carbon Group existed, our co-founder Nathan Hood was a partner at local accounting firm Sterling Accountants alongside Dominic Papaluca.

It’s our pleasure to be able to announce that Dom and Nathan will be a team once again, with Dom merging his accounting firm Rise Business Solutions into Carbon Group, meaning bigger and better things are on the horizon!
With Dom’s wealth of experience in the accounting industry (spanning an impressive 25 years!) and Carbon’s tech-savvy approach to business, we’re excited that the merger has already had a huge positive impact on our clients and we are looking forward to the ongoing success it will bring.

Dom has received nothing but positive feedback from his clients about the merger.

“It was an easy decision to merge with Carbon. I have watched the company grow over the years and have been impressed with the ever-extending suite of services that Carbon offers its clients. I knew this would be a huge bonus for our clients to have access to these services without going to another provider. It’s great to be working with Nathan and the team again; a team that I (and many of my clients) have known and trusted for many years.”

Dom is joined by Elly, Julius and Sanjay who have been part of the Rise team for many years, and they’ve already made a fantastic impression in our office, becoming a valued part of our team of Carbonites.

Carbon’s co-founder Nathan Hood shares his excitement about working with Dom again.

“After going into different ventures after Sterling, Dom and I have kept in regular contact and Dom has been an enormous support to myself as a mentor, sharing his expertise and knowledge as a business owner. It made perfect sense to bring our expertise together again by merging our accounting firms into one powerful business.”

It’s been grow, grow, grow here at Carbon, with our network of firms ever-increasing across the country. This latest merger with Rise sees a large increase to our accounting division and we’re thrilled at how many small businesses across Perth and regional WA we’re able to assist with accounting services.

We’ll be holding some casual drinks and nibbles at the Carbon office in Osborne Park in the near future to bring our clients together, so keep an eye on our email invitations.

Our growth story over the past few years is one to be proud of, and we’re looking forward to our continued growth! Read more about Carbon’s journey since launching in 2014.
