Jaime Bates


Jaime, a Lismore local, began her career as a trainee accountant with Blackburn Prior in 2000. Since this time accounting has taken her across the world and brought her home again. After relocating to Sydney with her husband, Jaime worked with second tier accounting firm Grant Thornton in Sydney and the United Kingdom. This gave her many opportunities in terms of work experience, life experience and travel experience.

She later returned to Lismore in 2006 to start a family and purchase Shopbaby, which Jaime and her husband still run today. When Jaime decided it was time to rejoin the accounting profession she was warmly welcomed back to Blackburn Prior. She has a Bachelor of Business degreee and is a qualified Chartered Accountant.

Jaime provides practical business solutions to clients and also to the firm. She is an ideas person and natural problem solver. "Tax compliance is necessary and I can do it fast and accurately but my passion is developing the business and business owner", says Jaime.

Being a small business owner for over 10 years, Jaime has a remarkable insight into the ebbs and flows of small business and therefore a unique perspective to be able to assist clients.

Jaime, and her husband, have three busy children so working flexibly for Blackburn Prior allows her to balance her various roles and stay focused and vitalised.
