About Us

SBG Accountants & Business Advisors was established over 40 years ago to provide traditional accounting and taxation services to small business owners. Over the years we have responded to the needs of our clients and we now offer a complete range of accounting, taxation and business advisory services. In fact, we are now a  full financial services firm that offers financial planning and wealth creation services through one of our affiliate partners.

Originally situated in the Southbank precinct, we relocated in 2009 to new offices in Market Street on the fringe of the Melbourne CBD. Courtesy of a high level of client referrals we are now categorised as a small to mid sized accounting firm with around 10 staff. As such, we are large enough to handle highly technical tax and accounting issues and have developed specialist divisions within the firm including SMSF's. At the same time, we are small enough to guarantee our clients personal service and immediate access to all our staff.

Our current Principal, Paul Dobson has led the firm since 1992 and during that time the practise has evolved from a compliance based firm to a full financial services firm providing a broad range of services to business owners. We believe our client brief includes helping you grow your revenue, profits and business value. Of course, once you have worked hard to build a profitable business you also want to grow your wealth and protect your assets. For that reason we have built a strategic alliance with a financial planning group and in 2009 we also formed an alliance with Chartered Accountants, Blaze Acumen to provide advice in relation to highly technical domestic and international tax matters and complex business structures. We also utilise their 'Big 4' style training methods and share some resources which assists us in dealing with different size clients.

The accounting landscape has changed and while we certainly offer the usual accounting, tax and compliance services you would expect from a city based accounting firm, our real objective is to help you minimise the cost of compliance. We train you to use the most appropriate accounting software so we can complete your compliance work and tax returns on time and then focus on strategies to grow your business and your wealth.

Our typical client profile has also changed over the years. Initially small and micro business owners were our focus, however, we now service a number of medium and larged size businesses as well. Technology has certainly shaped our client base as we now assist numerous clients from country Victoria and interstate locations. Our development and focus on niche services including business start up advice and the establishment and maintenance of a self managed super funds has also been a big part of our expansion. In addition, we have also developed expertise in certain industries and have built a reputation as a specialist with real estate agents, franchises, the harness racing industry, medical practitioners and the various building trades including plumbers, electricians and carpenters.

Referrals remain the life blood of our business and we strive to earn your trust and ongoing referrals by delivering practical and proven strategies to solve business, taxation and financial problems.We strive to maintain the standards and professionalism that led to those recommendations and our dedicated team of accountants are committed to ongoing professional development so you enjoy access to the best technical tax and accounting advice available. No job is too big or too small and we adopt a hands on approach with our clients including visiting your business premises whenever possible.

Our core values include expertise and confidentiality and if you're looking for more than just basic accounting and tax compliance services from your accountant call us today on (03) 9629 6744.  We are accessible, always return your calls and guarantee you personal service with a pro-active approach.
