Best Accountants & Advisors in Melbourne CBD & Inner Suburbs – 2022

Top rated accountants in Melbourne using verified reviews from clients

We used hundreds of verified client reviews to vet the best accountants in Melbourne and its inner suburbs.

Best Accountants in Melbourne Revealed.

According to NAB Business Insights, accountants are the most important professional services for Australian small business performance. Yet very few small businesses consult ratings & reviews to see who the best accountants in Melbourne really are. 

That’s because until November 2018, FirmChecker didn’t exist. To help you out, we’ve separate the wheat from the chaff by collecting thousands of client reviews of accounting firms in Australia.

That means you can avoid situations like this:

Firstly, we’ll give you a few tips at what to look for.

Tip 1: experience is king

Good ratings aren’t everything for a good accountant – experience is vital. This means you should look for accountants who have at least 30 reviews and make sure they have the experience you need. Our doughnut charts of firms’ practice area strength helps you do this.

Tip 2: always try to get fixed fees

You’ll be happier. Peace of mind that what you agree to pay is what you actually pay. You don’t want to be paying for someone else’s inefficiency.

Tip 3: read reviews

It sounds obvious given we are a review site, but most people just glance at the high level numbers. Go deeper! You can get great insights into what a firm’s strengths and weaknesses are by looking at the comments, not just the numbers.

Tip 4: drill down

We have a powerful search engine that allows you to filter and sort by location, value, ratings and number of reviews.
