Whether you're a rapidly growing start-up or an established family run business, we have the skills, knowledge and understanding to support you.

Celebrating 14th May and Accounting Day!

Though you can count on us every other day too!



Accounting Day 2018 is upon us. It’s the national day that nestles nicely between Top Gun Day on the 13th, and Chocolate Chip Day on 15th. Yes, that may sound a bit glib ...

Are we the Goose to your Maverick?

We reckon it means it sits between a day focused on attitude and teamwork, and a day that celebrates serendipitous innovation; which actually makes it rather apt. A business thrives on those things and a good accountant holds everything together as it grows.

"How can you count on Essendon to do that?"

While you’re out there projecting your positive thinking, beavering away with your colleagues, and reveling in promoting new ideas, Essendon is here crossing the Ts and dotting the Is for you.

We take tremendous pride in knowing that many of our clients, whether start-ups or already established, thrive because of the work we do.

  • They benefit from our regular input through management accounts.

  • They have peace of mind that we have their back on taxation.

  • They rely on us to do the everyday work for their bookkeeping and payroll.

  • And they trust our experience and knowledge to get the legal framework right.

We make a difference by not only being a trusted supplier but also seeing ourselves as your business partner too.

You could say we become a business godparent. And we believe that’s the magic ingredient. We take the time and make the effort to properly understand your business. We don’t shy away from straight talking when it’s needed.

But equally so, we celebrate new approaches and never cease to marvel at the inventive ideas our clients have. Innovation, working alongside efficiency and profitability, is the perfect recipe for success.

"Positive attitude and teamwork bind those ingredients together!"

Does that make us Goose to your Maverick? Does that make us the chocolate chips, the cookie dough, or the baking tray? We’re not sure it’s for us to answer those questions really, but on Accounting Day 2018, we hope we’ve given you food for thought ...

Until next time ...

Business Godparent
