Our Story

For more than 80 years Osborn Watts & Co. has had a rich tradition in Victoria and is proud of its roots.

In 1936, Bill Osborn started his chartered accounting firm in Bastion Square and in the early 1950s he was joined by Lyle Flury to form Osborn Flury. The company soon relocated to its current offices in the historic Yarrow building. In 1971, Bill Watts joined as a partner and the practice became Osborn Watts & Co. In 1974, Bill Osborn retired and Ron McMicking and Doug Davis joined the partnership.

The practice operated in much the same manner until 1996 when Barb Asser became a partner. More recently, OWC has continued to evolve with the addition of Donna Spence and Shawn Rankin as partners in the firm.

Over its eight decades the partnership has continued to evolve and now by merging with Collins Barrow Victoria, we can offer our clients even more services such as specialized tax planning and reorganizations.
