Business hours
We have worked with Liston Newton's Accountancy and Advisory Team for over a decade. During that time, our business has grown substantially both organically and through purchases. This wouldn’t have been possible without Liston Newton Advisory to assist with our business planning, providing proactive advice and ensuring our accounts were always compliant in a complex and volatile industry.

CEO, Reho Travel
Liston Newton's Accountants analysed our financial and business situation and helped us implement strategies to improve our position. Their strategies turned our business from making a loss, to recording a 6-month net profit of 36 per cent. And we are now on track to show a 240 per cent increase in turnover over the next financial year.

SL Constructions
Liston Newton helped us move our accounting over to Xero. Their Accountant managed the set up and training so we felt comfortable with the software. We now have all our processes streamlined which gives us improved visibility of our business performance. This has allowed us to open 2 more stores without a significant increase in administration effort.

Frequently asked questions

Why do I need an accountant?

Do I need specialised accounting software? What should I use?

You can’t rely on simple paper and pen or even an outdated spreadsheet anymore. These days, specialised accounting software is crucial to ensuring your business gets its numbers right. The right platform enables you to streamline your bookkeeping and financial information in one central platform. It makes it easy to find what you need, when you need it, and collects the information you need, delivering it smoothly to your accountant in one comprehensive package.

Many software platforms out there do this, but none so well as Xero.

Xero makes it easy to manage your accounts. Intuitive and easy to use, it allows you to manage your numbers in just a few clicks, all from your web browser. In addition, it’s entirely cloud-based, providing access wherever you need it, and your entire accounting team can view real-time updates as they happen.

How do I minimise my tax?

A long term tax plan is your first step to minimising your tax. Your tax accountant in Geelong can help you put one together. Some common strategies they deploy may include:

  • Delaying invoices until the following year
  • Making personal super fund contributions
  • Distributing your income in a tax-effective manner
  • Increase asset spending in this financial year (where appropriate)

It’s all about working out what’s right for your situation to make your finances as tax-effective as possible.
