Our History

The GDC story dates back to 1994

Teaming up were Frank Gelonesi and Graziano “Graz” DeBortoli, who started their own firm in Sydney, called Gelonesi DeBortoli & Co.

Nine years later and with their reputation growing, the firm incorporated in 2003 to became GDC Tax Pty Ltd.

By 2009 it was time to expand and take on a third partner with Glenn Darby joining the GDC team.

Today, 26 professional staff are employed at GDC ably supported by six administration staff members and an office manager.

It’s a hard-working team focused fully on our clients’ needs.

From day one, our mantra has been to provide the very best personal service backed by our unrivalled industry knowledge.

Our partners have been involved in public practice all their working lives, and GDC remain as focussed as ever about helping our valued clients reach their financial goals.
