Benefits of a Chartered Accountant


Established in Brighton 1986, Australian Business Services (ABS) has operated for 30 years as a distinguished and boutique professional firm of accountants and strategic consultants.

ABS provide specialist accounting and business advisory services across Australia, based in the Melbourne bayside.

Focused on small to medium sized enterprises (SME’s), particularly property development and the franchising industry, we offer our clients value from our local and personalised approach.

Whether you are operating an established business, transitioning through a period of high growth, looking to sell, acquire or navigate through a period of commercial distress, we have a network of professionals to help deliver our clients tangible solutions.

We don’t do everything, but we have the business experience and professional networks to keep our clients well informed, connected, and up-to-date.

ABS are much more than traditional accountants – we take a broader perspective and work with our clients to value-add, bringing an astute knowledge and understanding of:

  • local market opportunities & risks
  • off-shore business development options
  • online commerce, web optimisation techniques and social technology
  • protection and ownership of IP
  • engagement with public sector funding and international bodies

Proper consideration of these aspects can truly help to engage your target audience in a way which integrates customer service with the back-office end.

Accounting might often be about arriving at an end-value, but business is about creating broader value. ABS are focused on this broader picture.

Whether you are engaged in manufacturing, distribution, retail, food & beverage, FMCG, property development, or a niche online retail operator – we can offer a sound commercial sounding board and give some strategic insights to your future plans.

ABS also offer our clients some strong insights into product pricing, yield management and cost optimisation strategies, with strong expertise in Excel spreadsheet modeling.

Or, you might be keen to explore customer relationship management (CRM) systems – we can steer you in the right direction. Our networks cross the full tier of IT professionals through to website development experts, designing systems and integrating them to accounting practice and stakeholder or statutory reporting.

At ABS, we aim to balance your obligations with the over-riding objective of business owners to drive results, reward and retain a great team, with reward.

Australian Business Services – an edge in business.  Small enough to deliver a local approach, with a network of specialised professionals that can give you the value offered by the larger firms.

Get in touch with us on 1300 69 62 55 and a consultant will be on hand to meet with you for a no obligation chat, in person, to discuss your specific current needs.
