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

Should I have an internal business accountant?

This question all depends on the size of your business. Business accountants can be a considerable expense, so they’re usually only viable for larger enterprises.

Before hiring an internal business accountant, take the time to assess whether the tasks you require support for can be completed internally – or should be outsourced.

For small businesses, it makes sense to partner with an external small business accountant in Melbourne. They can free up your team and ensure your numbers are accurate while helping you guide your business towards a successful future.

Do you provide accounting services for small businesses?

Our experienced SME accountants in Melbourne have the knowledge and expertise to help businesses of all sizes. However, we specialise in helping small businesses like yours achieve their financial goals. We can help you manage your cash flow, prepare better budgets, stay on top of your invoices, and manage your tax obligations to keep the ATO off your back.

It’s all part of a day's work.

Will I lose control of my business accounting is outsourced?

We know this is a common concern among business owners. We understand why – you’re trusting your accounting to an external team, and you no longer have direct oversight.

But at Liston Newton Advisory, you’re still in control. We’re just managing the process for you. We provide regular meetings and discussions to ensure you’re across every element of your business accounting, so you can continue to feel in control while seeing tangible results.

How much does business accounting cost?

When it comes to your business accounting, think of it as an investment rather than a cost.

The price can vary depending on what elements of business accounting your Melbourne business needs. It also changes depending on the complexity of your business, and whether your business accounting is working across one account or several interlinked enterprises.

Your Liston Newton Advisory small business accountant in Melbourne can discuss your needs and determine a price in your initial meeting.
