Bruce Edmunds’ Holistic Accounting Process

Our mission is simple: to help you prosper, and to help you achieve your goals, whether that’s in business or in your personal life.

Financial success rarely comes easily, and almost never occurs overnight. In most cases, it requires a combination of:

  • Careful planning
  • Tailored and individualised advice
  • Room to move, grow, and adapt
  • Ongoing analysis
  • Trust and transparency

What’s more, it often extends beyond accounting too – superannuation, tax planning, financial planning… your financial assets are a complicated affair.

Our holistic process is akin to a deep dive.

We go beyond the next quarter or tax year, and take a comprehensive look at your needs for the next five, 10, and 20 years, as well as how we can help you get there.

More than just accounting in Melbourne

Wealth and financial stability rarely happen overnight. What’s more, achieving such a position often requires more than a steady income.

As a result, helping you reach your financial goals requires us to do more than simply crunch the numbers.

We perform a diverse range of different services completely in-house – not only are we able to provide a more comprehensive, holistic plan or strategy, but we also ensure the process is simple and straightforward.

How our business accountants in Melbourne operate

Every individual and business is unique – there’s no such thing as a one size fits all solution when it comes to accounting.

By understanding your needs and working around them, we’re able to create more effective solutions for you.

Step 1: understand your needs and goals

Each business and individual is unique, and requires a different approach regarding their:

  • Tax obligations
  • Retirement plans
  • Amount of wealth
  • Assets and liabilities

Our initial consultations set the tone for our entire relationship, and the advice we’re able to offer – unless we understand your goals, we cannot help you to the best of our abilities.

The first step towards your life or business goals and the foundation of a long and fruitful accountant-client relationship starts with clear and achievable goals. And that starts with an understanding of where you are, and where you want to go.

Step 2: strategise

Once we’ve determined where it is that you want to go, the next step is to work out the details.

Taking into account your current situation and future goals, our experienced accountants in Melbourne sit down with you to create a plan.

We’ll assess and address the challenges, risks, and threats that stand between you and your goals, and proactively develop and implement strategies to help you overcome them.

We’re committed to complete transparency. Our team understands that our relationship with you is built on trust – every decision and suggestion we make is completely transparent, which ensures you know the intended outcome of everything we advise.

Step 3: ongoing analysis and course correction

Your circumstances are ever-changing. And so too is your plan.

To ensure that you stay on track to achieve your goals, our team meets with you regularly and performs ongoing analysis. We document progress to ensure your plan is performing as expected and that you’re meeting the goals set in step 1.

During these meetings, we’ll make recommendations and adjustments based on your current situation and changes in the landscape such as tax reforms.

We’ll assess and address the ever-changing challenges, risks, and threats, many of which are constantly changing and present themselves at various stages of your life.
