Consider us your go-to solution

Our goal is to make the often tumultuous process of running a business as smooth as possible. As our list of services proves, our accountants are more than capable of tailoring solutions to your specific needs.

Til we meet at our initial consultation, we’ll let our awards and client testimonials speak to the efficacy of our work. However, we will say that what makes our full-service approach so effective is the unity of having all of your advisors under one roof.

Your dedicated accountants have total and instant access to our nationwide network of experts. Through their counsel, we’ll be able to guide you through any challenge, from optimising your accounting process to surviving economic downturns.

Kieran Liston and the Liston Newton team have been assisting me with my accounting matters since 1976. For the past 47 years, Kieran and the Liston Newton team have provided reliable accounting assistance, which has allowed me to focus on my business in primary production.

Their exceptional service has consistently exceeded my expectations and made me feel that they truly care about my financial well-being.

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

What accounting software should I use?

There are many software platforms on the market, all with their niches. We recommend using cloud-based software, and the market leader is Xero.

Xero ensures real-time management of your books and gives you the information you need to run your business. You can work anywhere, anytime, and save time on books. It's easy to collaborate with your bookkeeper and accountant to grow your business.

Why do I need an accountant?

Accountant firms do more than just prepare your tax returns and financial statements. We are strategic advisers who help you make the right decisions to grow your business. Choosing the right accountancy firm is essential to any business owner seeking financial success.

Personal accounting services are equally important; they provide you with the expertise to reduce your tax liability and future-proof your personal wealth. With the ever-increasing data matching and scrutiny from the ATO on individual taxpayer deductions, our meticulous accounting tax services can ensure you claim the correct deductions for your tax returns.

What other services does an accounting firm provide?

Where’s all my cash gone?

We get asked this common question when, for example, a profit and loss statement shows a profit of $100,000, yet the bank balance is in overdraft. There are the common areas where your cash might have gone whilst not affecting the bottom line, including:

  • Purchase of stock
  • Purchase of plant and equipment
  • Pay down of loans
  • Money you are owed
