About Us

Owen & Peach was established in the south eastern suburbs of Melbourne in the early 1980’s to service the accounting and taxation needs of local small business owners. Three decades later, the firm has grown significantly and built a reputation for delivering quality service and advice to small and medium sized businesses.

Along the way we have successfully merged with several firms (TVA Partners in 2004 and McMillan’s in 2005) and while our personnel have changed over the years, our commitment to providing exceptional value and service remains a constant. We continue to evolve and adapt to the changing needs of our clients and have become a full financial services firm offering clients business, taxation, accounting and financial services. The team are continually seeking and implementing new ideas and utilising the latest technology to create efficiencies so we can spend more time helping our clients grow their businesses. 

We believe in ‘old fashioned’ service and regularly visit clients at their work place to get a better understanding of their business, their products and services plus their staff. Being a proactive firm we have responded to the needs of our clients and added a range of new services over the journey. We have evolved from a traditional tax and accounting practice to a full financial services firm providing small business owners with more than just tax returns and compliance. Our role is to help you grow your revenue, your profits and your business value. We also strive to help you create wealth using tax effective strategies like negative gearing and superannuation. We also assist clients with their marketing and provide advice on branding, websites and the development of promotional materials. Our holistic approach to clients extends to asset protection and succession planning.

While our clients span a broad range of industries we have developed some niche markets including child care centres, demolition and asbestos removal, transport and logistics as well as bubble tea shops. In addition, our client base includes a number of health care professionals including dentists, medical practitioners and wellness centres. Our knowledge of these industries could give your business a serious competitive edge.

We are big enough to handle the most complex technical tax issues but small enough to maintain our commitment to personal service.

OUR BRAND PROMISE

As business advisors, we continually look for ways to innovate and deliver practical solutions that provide our clients with the best financial outcomes. We are always looking to identify opportunities to help our business owners improve their bottom line results and increase the value of their business. Most importantly, we always have one eye on the future.

It's fair to say, the only old fashioned part of our business is our commitment to personal service. For many years we have delivered advice that is both practical and technically sound based on an understanding of our client's long-term financial objectives. While technology and the internet have changed the business landscape, we also believe it has changed the role of the accountant. Here at Owen & Peach, we do more than just 'keep the score' for your business and our client brief includes helping you grow your revenue, your profits and the value of your business. We recognise the importance of marketing in the digital and social age and genuinely believe that your marketing could be the difference between doom, gloom and boom.

Our marketing expertise is one of our key points of difference and to help you we have developed a number of consulting tools including checklists, templates and spreadsheets. Our pro-active approach further distinguishes us from other traditional accounting firms who tend to just focus on compliance work including tax returns and financial statements. Our focus is on advisory work including strategies to improve your bottom line and business value. We also use industry benchmarks to compare your business’ performance against your competitors so you know what is working in your business and what areas still need working on. If you're looking for more than just a number cruncher contact us today and let's get to work on growing your business.

Business owners are our primary focus and our clients span the entire business life cycle, from start up right through to sale. Having mentored hundreds of business owners through the start up phase we have earned a reputation as business start up specialists. We  are big enough to handle the most complex tax issue but small enough to maintain our commitment to personal service. We pride ourselves on our reputation for delivering quality service and advice and we strive to deliver exceptional value and outstanding financial results for our clients.

Communication is a vital ingredient in any successful relationship which explains why we regularly visit clients at their place of work. This provides us with a better understanding of your business, your products and services, your finance requirements plus your staff and daily operations.
