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.
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.
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.

Companies and other organisations have an obligation to be audited under various circumstances. An audit of financial reports is a regulatory requirement for the following:
Another factor that causes an audit is whether a company or charity receives a government grant. This is proof for the government that the figures for the financial reports are true and fair.
First, you need to consider why you're hiring a business accountant over any other type of accountant.
Internally, business accountants are usually a major expense and are usually only employed in large-scale established businesses. However, if you’re a small business owner, you’ll find a dedicated business accountant just as necessary. We recommend that you first assess whether the tasks could be better delegated internally before hiring an external business accountant. Liston Newton Advisory is an expert small business accounting service; get in touch with us today for a free strategy session.
There are various equipment finance options. Choosing the right one will depend on your business circumstances:
Your business accountant can help you determine which type of loan is the best for your business.
Most business accountants suggest that it is better to fund an asset purchase with cash if your cash flow allows. Paying cash will save you money on interest payments.
Financing will be a better option if you don't have the cash flow to support paying for the asset in full.
You can choose to purchase a vehicle in your personal name or your company’s.
Purchasing a vehicle in a business structure can be a tax-effective strategy as you can claim all of the business-related expenses and depreciation through the business. However, you need to consider Fringe Benefits Tax, as any non-business use needs to be accounted for through a Fringe Benefits Tax reimbursement.
A business accounting consultant can determine the best option tailored to your exact circumstances.
