Maxine Meng is an important part of our Shuriken super-team and one of the accountants at our Shuriken Dural office.
Maxine’s career started with her decision to study Accounting at Macquarie University in Sydney, NSW. Accounting wasn’t a familiar topic, but she wanted to find out more about it.
So she packed her bags and left her home country, China, to explore a whole new world of possibilities in Sydney, Australia.
Of course, she’s homesick sometimes, but she believes moving to Australia has been one of her wisest decisions. It has helped her grow up, become independent and evolve into a successful woman.
After graduating from University with a Master’s degree in Accounting, Maxine was eager to become a valuable member of the Australian workforce. It didn’t take long before she was offered a position at an accounting firm and started acquiring some much-needed experience.
Now, Maxine is an Accountant Extraordinaire at Shuriken and a crucial part of our team.
The responsibilities of an Accountant Extraordinaire are…
Maxine is in charge of helping you make the best financial decisions for your future. This sometimes means solving complicated financial issues or educating clients on various financial aspects.
Our Accountant Extraordinaire is like a tailor who works hard to make a perfectly fitted suit for her clients. The results must always be somewhere along the lines of “flawless”.
She brilliantly handles all these responsibilities daily:
- advising and interviewing clients, looking after client tax affairs and returns
- training new staff members
- customer service
- preparation of financial reports, BAS, IAS, cash flow budgeting, tax returns, etc
Maxine, happy go lucky
“I’m a happy accountant because I love my job and the people I work with,” shares Maxine. At Shuriken, she feels part of a big, happy family.
Maxine loves a good challenge! It seems like this is a common accounting trait at Shuriken, as Jen, our ‘Numbers Magician’, also loves her daily share of “complicated puzzles”.
“Above all, accounting is about people, real-life problems and the struggle to find the perfect solution for each of those problems,” says Maxine. Accounting is a people-oriented career at Shuriken Consulting.
Maxine’s advice for you…
“Lodge and pay tax on time. It will make your and your accountant’s lives easier.”

She loves to eat. Either on a workday or a weekend, Maxine will always be up for a delicious tasting spree. “The best thing about it is exploring all those different flavours,” says Maxine. She’s an authentic foodie!
One little-known fact about Maxine is that she’s a pro at choosing her passwords. She claims she has her own full-proof system of creating secure passwords for all her accounts.
Hmm, we’d like a glimpse into her system but she’s secretive about it! However, we promise to find out and get back to you on that…
