Knox Taxation and Business Advisory



Holy Basil Thai Restaurant


Knox Tax has provided us with a highly personable and efficient service.

We’ve been made to feel very welcome by a family-orientated accountancy practice that cares deeply about our business – and not just about our taxation concerns and affairs.

Coral and her team have made a point of really getting to know our business with a sense of passionate interest.

They have helped us set up MYOB, taken the time to analyse what we do, and they continually give us key suggestions as to how we can maximise and increase our profits, without sacrificing the quality of our offering to our customers and staff.

We’re much more at ease knowing that we have people who really do care about helping us to achieve our goals viably and sustainably, and who can give us the right business advice as we implement value-adding concepts that will continue to make our restaurant a market leader in the Eastern Suburbs of Melbourne.”

    “I have dealt with Knox Tax for many years now and are currently running my first business. The help starting up was invaluable and definitely enabled me to continue to grow at a good pace.

    Saying the times are tough right now is an understatement. We have had majority of our business closed due to Covid-19.

    Knox Tax have continued to guide me through and helped with every obstacle thrown my way. Getting the assistance from them and working with the Government Bodies have kept the doors open and have saved my business and possibly the family home as well.

    My self, my wife and 3 young children cannot thank the team enough and look forward to building into the future. Definitely recommend Knox Tax for any business !

    “Knox Tax is such a valuable asset to us and our complex print machinery business.

    There’s such a wonderful human side to them that you don’t see with other accounting firms – but it doesn’t stop there!

    Aside from the quality time they spend with us, and their ever-caring approach, they have taken the time to really understand our business (including our products, what we actually do, and how our business functions).

    Their service is tailored to what we need, rather than just being a process.

    We began using Knox Tax two and a half years ago, as a Start-Up business, and they were incredibly helpful in getting us properly organised and set-up, and they also helped us overcome some serious hurdles created by some disgruntled competitors.

    We utilise their Bookkeeping and Business Advisory services regularly and we experience total peace of mind as a result.

    We’re always brilliantly advised about how to streamline what we’re doing, they keep us informed about how we’re ‘really’ going, and we know that our monthly books and accounting are done properly – so there are no surprises at Tax time, or at any other time throughout the year.

    The team at Knox Tax is incredibly professional and very knowledgeable in all aspects of Business and Personal Tax, and we couldn’t do without them.”

    “Setting up a business is complicated. We really had no idea of the complexities of making it profitable, nor the structure required to take on new employees, how to sort out our bookkeeping software system, and what we could do to maximise our Tax Returns at the EOFY.

    We’re growing and the advice and support we receive from Knox Taxation is outstanding!

    We’re always met with smiles and enthusiasm from the team, and we can liaise with them at any time.

    They’ve taught us to understand what possible pitfalls to look out for, strategies for growth, and everything else that is financially related to our business.

    Prior to engaging their services, we had no idea what we were missing out on and we couldn’t be any more delighted with the comprehensive and extremely helpful service we receive.

    Whenever we need Knox Tax, they’re there!”.

    “Before coming on board as a client with Knox Taxation, we had been seeing a different accountant in the local area.

    Despite being great and responsive at the start, overtime they became inaccessible and difficult to get in touch with. They stopped returning our calls and did not follow through on promises. We had so many questions but just couldn’t seem to get any answers!

    This was when we decided to look elsewhere and were introduced to Coral and Craig from Knox Taxation and Business Advisory.

    From the minute we met them, we knew that they spoke our language. They patiently answered our questions, took the time to help us better understand tax (including what you can and can’t do) and made us feel comfortable, as though no question was ever a dumb question.

    We also loved that they asked about our personal goals as a couple in addition to our business’ goals and took them into consideration for future planning.

    Throughout the process, it was clear that Coral and Craig worked well together as a team. They stayed true to their original quote and completed our Company Tax Return, Financials and two Individual Tax Returns in TWO WEEKS! (Our previous accountant took several months to do the same and the work was completely wrong!)

    Overall, we’re just really happy that we found Knox Taxation and Business Advisory and look forward to working with them again in the near future!”.

    I can go to their website for the latest tax news, source the answers to my questions, and deposit our accounting records through the Knox Tax Portal throughout the year, so that our EOFY requirements are ready to be taken care of.

    As a small business, we give good service ourselves, and it’s great to find a service provider like Knox Tax who believes in delivering on their promises in every way as well.”

  • Ecotech Plumbing


    “Knox Tax are brilliant!

    With prior Accountants there was a total lack of communication, they were hard to get hold of and we paid massive fees for virtually no service.

    Knox Tax came on board and straightened out our financial systems and procedures, tidied it all up, and now we know exactly where we’re at – whereas before it was all a big mystery.

    Coral and the Team are very professional, informative and caring.

    They take the time to listen, and find out what needs to be done to save on every dollar possible – and then explain it all to me in language that I can understand.

    I really appreciate their personal touch!”

    We are always grateful for the enthusiastic and positive approach that the team at Knox Tax show when discussing business affairs with them, and the fact that they always do more than is expected to maximize the tax benefits to our company.”

    Everything about their level of service is fantastic.

    They helped me set up my air conditioning business and also handle all of my End of Year Financials and Business and Personal Tax Returns.

    They’re always helpful – and whenever I’ve got a taxation problem, in one phone call it gets fixed.

    Knox Tax’s friendly staff are utterly approachable and whilst I’m notorious for trying to do everything myself, they’re always there to keep me in line.

    Everything about them is just great!”

    In that time, I have had every confidence that my best interests were paramount and that care was taken to deliver the best results.

    I have never felt like a “number”; instead, I feel like a valued client.

    I met her in 1997, when I lived in Scoresby and sought to do my Tax for the first time in my life.

    She has witnessed me go from a bottomless pit, through homelessness, joblessness, and living in over  15 different addresses to building my own home. That’s 23 years of amazing service!

    If I live elsewhere (which I am likely to do) and perhaps even interstate… I would not change from Knox Taxation.”
