Our Story

As told by Peter Khalil (‘PK’)…

My mother and father started their childcare business, a 20-place preschool catering for 3 to 5 years olds, in Sydney in 1987. With English as their second language, my parents faced so many challenges, but they persevered.

They ran the business for more than 15 years and saw first hand the stresses of the downs and the joys of success. They sowed the seeds for us to one day follow in their footsteps.

I studied business and accountancy—not simply because I loved numbers, but—because I loved business: I have always been fascinated by how they work, how they succeed (and fail), the people behind them.

I started my accountancy in 2010, driven by a combination of curiosity and ambition—I was drawn by the challenge of building something from nothing.

Today, PK Chartered Accountants is a team of 5.

In 2011, our family purchased a childcare business to continue my parents’ legacy, and then we acquired another centre in 2016. Today, the family businesses employs a team of more than 25 people.

What that means for you

We’re not your average pen-pushing, number-crunching, nerdy accountants. We have a passion for business and, like you, we’re ‘in the game’ of business ourselves, not just scorekeepers on the sideline.

This means you get pragmatic, real-world advice that comes from a place of understanding the demands of owning and running your own businesses.

Our Values


When you want an answer, you want it fast. We get that. We pride ourselves on our responsiveness to client queries.


At PK we have a culture of respect for each other, for our clients (including your team), for the community and for the environment.


A key part of our role in advising you is to think ahead and anticipate challenges well in advance, before they can become problems.
