About Us


In July 1997, David & Tracy Powell purchased an existing Penrith accountants practice located at 608 High St, Penrith, opposite the Joan Sutherland Performing Arts Centre at the Emu Plains end of the High Street.


The business was operated by David & Tracy until November 2000 when Natasha Bennett joined as a trainee accountant, working part time whilst at the same time studying for her university degree. Natasha continues to work for the business as a qualified accountant.


In April 2001, the office was moved to its current location in Castlereagh St, Penrith opposite the Penrith RSL.

Due to the hard working efforts of the principals and staff the business continued to grow and in 2001 Jo-ann Hurley commenced on a part-time basis as a qualified accountant. 


In January 2004 the business was joined by Matthew Bennett as the administration support, and after 7 years in that role Matthew obtained his Graduate Certificate in Public Accounting and remains in the business as a qualified accountant.


In 2007, Jo-ann Hurley joined Tracy Powell as principal and Hurley & Powell Pty Ltd was formed.


In 2011, Matthew obtained his Graduate Certificate and in June of the same year the business was joined by Paul Hurley as Office Manager


In 2012, Tracy Powell retired and Jo-ann Hurley became the sole principal
