Starting a Business

Starting your own business is a big decision in your life (and for many a rewarding one). Unfortunately we hear too many stories of business owners taking the plunge without any real knowledge on how to run a business.  It is no surprise to us that many business owners that don’t get good advice fail in the few few years of operation.  Getting the right advise early is imperative to give your business the best start possible to succeed.

We will assist in choosing the right business structure for your business, registering with the relevant government authorities (ASIC & ATO), which accounting software to use, plus we will put you in touch with a host of “non accounting” services providers that can assist with business insurances, finance, human resources,.. and more.

We love seeing new businesses flourish and to help in the process we run through a 50 point new business checklist with new clients together with a generous 50% discount on our fees in your first year of operation… (but don’t tell anyone).

50% discounts



We know how hard it is for new businesses to get off the ground in the first few years of trading. In 2012 we made the decision to give all new businesses with a turnover under $500,000 a year,  a 50% discount on our normal fees in the first year of business (and a 25% discount in the 2nd year).

It’s just our way of doing our bit for small business in Australia.
