Even though we excel with numbers, and don’t get me wrong we love a good spreadsheet… we understand that profits don’t necessarily equate to a happier life. We look at your business as a whole and work to understand what happiness means to you and how we can achieve this in your business life.

From the moment you make contact with our office, you will be welcomed by our enthusiastic and friendly team. You will be looked after and be treated as a part of our extended family.

Our wonderful team believe we have formulated the perfect blend of personalised service and ongoing customer care to ensure our clients have ready access to the advice and support they expect. We are not your usual accounting firm. We provide honest, accurate and jargon free accounting.

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.

Managing Director
Goldfields Health Collective

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.

The team at M & B Accountants have worked closely with our firm since its inception. The have supported, guided and grown with us in that time and we really consider them as part of our extended team.

M & B Accountants are forward thinking, adaptable and responsive which is critical for business owners and we highly recommend their services.

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

Managing Director
UBC Web Design

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.
