WE CARE ABOUT
At Knox Taxation and Business Advisory, we’re passionate about the success of YOUR business.
We take great pride and interest in mentoring you throughout all stages of the business life cycle.
We have Melbourne based business advisory services, that are able to help you build a successful business by:
- Giving insight into your business’ performance
- Explaining your business’ financials in a way you can understand
- Holding your hand through business challenges and hurdles
- Reducing your likelihood of paying too much tax each year, so you can invest it elsewhere in your business
- Celebrating your wins, and
- Supporting you through your losses.
Whether you’re a start-up, a developing business or an established business, our Accounting and Business Advisory services are available to you.
WE PROVIDE PERSONALISED AND QUALITY BUSINESS ADVICE
Unlike other accountants, our team love getting to know you, your story and what inspired you to start your business.
This helps us to gather an in-depth understanding of your situation so we can provide you with the utmost value and personalised advice.
We can help you:
- Gain a greater understanding of your finances & profit
- Understand the complexities of tax compliance
- Identify key areas of opportunity
- Implement positive measures to improve your KPIs
- Through times of personal crisis, that may be impacting your business
- Resolve issues with the ATO due to knowing the whole story of your operation.
With us, you can rest assured that you’re not just another number. Our staff will listen to your situation carefully; side-stepping the traditional ‘one size fits all’ approach.
WE USE LANGUAGE YOU CAN UNDERSTAND
Our team is renowned for simplifying complex tax jargon into a language that all of our clients can understand.
This in turn, enables you to make informed decisions relating to your business and your finances to grow your revenue and profits.
For many of our clients, we take care of the technical (eg. Bookkeeping, Tax Returns, BAS and overseeing Payroll) so they can focus on the physical and what matters most to their business. We can do the same for you too!
Whether you’re a tradie, a business start-up or an established business, we can help you grow and most importantly, manage your Financial and Taxation circumstances effectively. We’ll be your Accounting and Business Counsellors, all-in-one.
That’s our promise to you.

TAX PLANNING SERVICES
If you could pay less tax this year what would you do with the extra money?
During March-May we offer Tax Planning services to business clients to help you implement legitimate tax saving strategies before Year-end.
This can help reduce the amount of tax you have to pay for the year, but it does vary depending on your business and personal situation.
If you want to own and run a successful business, year-end tax planning should be part of your overall business strategy.
