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.

There are several different personal insurance types available in Australia.
There’s no way to sugar-coat it: life insurance is designed to provide for your family in the unfortunate circumstances that you pass away. It provides a lump sum to your beneficiaries, and can help to pay for funeral costs, provide future income for your partner, and meet any existing financial obligations when you’re no longer around.
Trauma insurance provides a one-off lump sum payment to cover any serious medical condition, such as heart attacks, stroke, or cancer. Trauma insurance is one of the more commonly claimed personal insurance types, and as such, it can be one of the more expensive personal insurances. However, it’s worth it to provide peace of mind that you’re covered in the event of any serious health conditions.
Income protection is a personal insurance type that covers you in the event that you can’t work, due to illness or injury. It provides a steady income stream of up to 75% of your gross monthly income.
Personal insurance protects you and your family against unforeseen circumstances such as death, illness or accidents. It ensures that you have protection in place to help you achieve your personal wealth goals should anything go amiss. As such, personal insurance is a sensible idea for anyone looking to safeguard their financial plans.
However, when it comes to life insurance, you’ll typically only need this personal insurance type if you have dependents who rely on your income to survive.
When looking into personal insurance in Australia, the cost of your personal insurance type will depend on many factors. These can include:
While we can’t provide you with an exact dollar amount here, you’ll typically pay anywhere from $35.00 to $50.00 per month for a personal insurance policy that covers you for approximately $500,000.
But this is just an approximate amount. Your personal insurance adviser can work with you to determine the personal insurance plan that’s suitable for your situation.
Selling a business is a big decision. It’s the end result of years of hard work, so you want to make sure you do it right.
