Profile of Richard Godfrey and his Background and General Life Experience

What has now become Caecilian Enterprises Pty Limited originally commenced in July 1992, with Richard Godfrey having now accumulated over 29 years experience in its fields outlined below.

After restructuring this business in order to keep it “up with the times” Caecilian Enterprises Pty Limited, offers products and services through its subsidiaries. By clicking on the direct links for these, you will have direct access to more information on these products and services, which will open in a new window:

Caecilian Bookkeeping Services offers Computerised Bookkeeping for businesses and individuals. This is the main income producer for the company and it is the intention, hopefully in the not too distant future, to extend this product line to provide full taxation accounting services, which would be in line with the “one stop shop” product combinations, which Caecilian Enterprises Pty Limited is trying to achieve. More information will be provided regarding that development, once it is available. As a further means of preparing for this transition, Richard has, from 2014, completed casual tax season work (July thru October) in 2014 with H & R Block Tax Accountants. Additionally, for the 2016 tax season, he has completed casual work with Advantage Tax Consultants, which was right through from the beginning of July 2016 to the end of October 2016, including the shared managing of their Wentworthville NSW sub branch. The name “Caecilian Bookkeeping Services” will change, once tax agent registration is complete, to reflect the new development. Associate memberships of both the “Institute of Public Accountants” and the “Institute of Financial Accountants” have been obtained in line with this new development.

Caecilian Music Services is now offering products in the area of Music Typesetting and Arranging services. Special services with the music products offered also include the abilily to provide a translation service into English of foreign language lyrics where required. In house, German, French and Latin translations are offered, however connections exist to provide translations into English from other languages.

Caecilian Design Services offers Graphic Design including business cards, brochures, flyers etc. Caecilian Design Services also handle other sundry matters, such as database maintenance, spreadsheet creation and maintenance and also such matters as computer software installation and software related problems on PCs.

Overall, Caecilian Enterprises Pty Limited aims to offer a broad range of computer product assistance - the different products work “in harmony with each other”, which is where the name Caecilian originated. St Caecilia was the patron saint of music (and also the blind), in line with Richard Godfrey's principal interests in music as well as other computing areas.
