Max Basile CPA


Since joining PTP as a partner in 2008, Max has become known for his ability to communicate with a huge range of clients and the no-nonsense manner in which he dispenses advice.

Many clients will tell you that it’s Max’s honesty, his willingness to tackle tough issues and his ability to effectively hold people accountable that are the key reasons for them achieving their professional and personal goals.

After growing up in the Goulburn Valley, Max—who works between our regional and city offices—went into accounting to help his Italian family understand their finances. He values building up relationships over years because “people need to feel confident they’re not being judged,” he says. “I tell clients there’s no such thing as a stupid question.”

With a huge experience base thanks to working closely with small to medium businesses for two decades, Max’s passion away from work is his family and cooking anything “from roasts to barbecues, pasta, fish,” he says. “I love planning meals, shopping and being in the kitchen.”
