Meet our accounting team

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.

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.

Our case studies

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.

Accountants for individuals are equally important as they provide you with the expertise on claiming the right deductions at tax time. With the ever increasing data matching and scrutiny from the ATO on individual taxpayer deductions, a meticulous accounting service can ensure you claim the correct deductions.

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
