Accountants Torquay

We are a small to medium-sized accounting, business advisory and wealth & retirement planning firm situated in Newtown just 22 kilometres from Torquay.

As a suburban Geelong accounting firm we are very skilled in the preparation of financial statements, tax returns and cash flow budgets, however, it is our services beyond compliance that distinguish us from other Torquay accounting firms. We recognise the fact that your marketing could be the difference between gloom, doom and boom and our marketing services distinguish us from other firms on the Bellarine Peninsula. If you need assistance with your branding, website, search engine optimisation, video production or social media campaigns we can help you.

Another point of difference is the fact that we strive to help you minimise the cost of bookkeeping and compliance. As your accountant we focus on helping you grow your business, your profits and your wealth. We support a range of different accounting software programs including MYOB and Quickbooks but we are strong advocates for cloud based bookkeeping solutions like Xero.

Our specialist services include business start-up advice, self-managed superannuation services and advice regarding negative gearing of investment properties. Over many years we have also developed considerable expertise in several industries including builders and the various building trades, franchises, gyms, personal trainers plus health and wellness centres.  In addition, our stable of clients includes a number of architects and drafters, antique dealers, hairdressers and barbers.

Our small firm personality guarantees you personal service but we also have the technical capabilities of a large firm. Our clients are predominantly family owned businesses and while we service a number of local business owners in the Newtown and Torquay area, we also have clients from all around Australia. 

Our dedicated team of accountants are committed to ongoing professional development so you enjoy access to the best technical tax and accounting advice available. No job is too big or too small and we adopt a hands on approach with our clients including visiting your business premises whenever possible. You have unlimited access to our team and we always return your calls and respond to your emails as soon as practically possible. We guarantee you personal service and innovative strategies to accelerate your business success.
