For over 40 years, Melbourne’s most ambitious business owners have trusted us to guide them towards and beyond their goals. They’ve rewarded our success with long-lasting partnerships. If you’re looking for personalised accounting advice, then Liston Newton’s accountants in Melbourne are only too happy to help.
Why don’t we start with a coffee? Step into our CBD office for a consultation, and let’s discuss how we can design a personalised plan of action to get your business on track. You’ll find us on the corner of Flinders Lane and Queen Street. Public transport in the city is a breeze; if you’re driving, you’ll find plenty of street parking, but we recommend Secure Parking at 367 Collins Street. Of course, we can also arrange a virtual consultation if you’d prefer.
What makes Liston Newton a powerful financial partner isn’t just the depth of our knowledge, but the breadth of it, too. That’s why we have two Melbourne offices: one in the city, and one in the inner-city suburb of Malvern. Depending on your goals, we’ve got a specialist on staff who can see it through.
While their proximity makes it easy enough to organise in-person meetings, our Malvern team are also always available for virtual meetings. In fact, all of our national offices are. If you’ve branches around Australia, or are planning an expansion, we can still offer you localised Liston Newton expertise.
Our Melbourne CBD accountants offer an array of professional services for small and medium-sized businesses. Whatever your goals, we’ll discern a clear and actionable path towards them.
When Liston Newton started with ReAqua, they hit the ground running, implementing changes to the business and the automation of the finance function.

Liston Newton's Accountants analysed our financial and business situation and helped us implement strategies to improve our position.

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.
The first phase is all about establishing the fundamentals of your business and creating a strong foundation to build from. You also need to establish your long-term goals so you have a clear idea of what you're working towards.
The second phase is about gaining a deeper understanding of your business; how to make it more efficient and experience sustainable growth. This is where you transition from working in your business to working on your business.
The final phase is when all your hard work really starts to pay off. This is when you start using your profits to build your personal worth to a point that give you financial freedom—the freedom to work only if you want to.
