Our Why

We genuinely care about our clients and not just their figures.

We work and do what we love to effect change for our clients. Nothing makes us happier than seeing you happy and successful.

Our vision at M & B Accountants is not to be the biggest accounting firm in the region. In fact, we want to grow our small accounting firm while understanding each and every one of our client’s needs.

Our Story

Established in April 2016 and managed by Brent Irvin and Meegan Dunne, M & B Accountants is a small, boutique firm delivering a quality and individualised service to all of their clients. Whilst we are based in Ballarat, we service client’s right throughout Australia.

Both Brent and Meegan began their careers with Dobbyn & Spencer in Ballarat and together have a combined 40 years' experience working in public practice.

They have both remained with the same firm over their careers, despite the various name changes the firm has been through since starting at Dobbyn & Spencer.

The establishment of M & B Accountants was a natural progression for them, and in April 2016 they acquired the accounting practice that they have both worked in for over twenty years each.

We understand the importance of client relationships, and are particularly proud of our consistently high standards of service and expertise.

We have been working with many of our clients and their families since commencing our careers.

At M & B Accountants we work hard, but we also understand the importance of having some fun and maintaining work-life balance.

M + B Accountants - Our Story


The Team at M&B have been so much more than accountants for me over the past few years. They have helped me gain a greater understanding of business and were a remarkable support to me as I started my own business in 2020. Their support went above and beyond accounting and I am still so incredibly grateful that they have helped me through some challenging times and continue to do so as I grow my business in happier times.

I have no hesitation in recommending the M&B team to others.

We have been using the services of M &B Accountants since 2019 when they were referred to us from a previous satisfied customer. Overwrought Garden Art is a manufacturing and tourism enterprise employing eleven people based in Blampied outside Daylesford. From our first contact we have received a professional and thorough response in all our dealings. As our business has been operating for fifteen years we had used multiple other accountants in the past and M&B accountants have offered the best service by far. Our correspondence is always dealt with in a timely manner, any questions or concerns are always followed up on promptly and we feel the advice we receive is always up to date and pertinent to the growth and challenges our business has faced, particularly in the last twelve months. We feel we have never been in better control of our finances, taxes and strategic planning and would happily recommend the services of M&B accountants to other businesses.

There’s something about working with a boutique agency like M & B Accountants that suits us down to the ground. It’s knowing that we have a relationship with whoever picks up the phone and that we’re not just another number, the team knows us at UBC Web Design, our family, our goals and, well, our shortcomings.

They work hard to help up meet goals and overcome shortcomings.

Our business would not be in the position it is in today without the team at M & B Accountants

The Directors at Utility Trees engaged M&B Accountants from the day of our business concept in 2015. Their staff walked us through each phase of our Start-up, from business registration to financial strategic planning.

We have since outsourced most of our financial administration to M&B, including our BAS, reconciliation of our accounts and payroll. I have dealt with several of their employees over the years and they have all been very helpful, easy to understand and friendly. I highly recommend M&B Accountants to any business and I look forward to further developing our financial relationship with them as we continue to grow.
