Our Approach

Bristax has been providing business accounting services in Brisbane since 2009. Our founder, Stephen Blake, was born in Brisbane and has lived in Brisbane for over 45 years. We are committed to Brisbane and understand the business culture here and many other aspects of doing business here, which can only be gained by living in Brisbane many years. We understand that doing business in Brisbane is not always the same as doing business in Sydney or Melbourne.

Bristax is a member of CPA Australia and The Tax Institute. The Tax Institute is Australia’s peak body for tax professionals. We strive to maintain the highest technical and ethical standards.

We focus on businesses with annual turnover up to $10,000,000. This enables us to customise our expertise and services. We all know that trying to do too many things means you end up doing many things with mediocre results.

The two biggest differences between us and many other accounting firms in Brisbane are our expertise and responsiveness. You only deal with senior or partner level accountants. Not graduates or even intermediate accountants. This means you get the expert advice you need promptly. No waiting for days. No vague advice by someone who doesn’t understand what they are doing.

We understand that although there are certain aspects that many businesses share in common, no two businesses are exactly the same. We don’t pretend to know your business better than you do. We do try to understand your business enough to the point where we can customise our services and provide better value to you.

Bristax is an accounting firm that focuses on what really matters. We don’t provide worthless business consulting that ends up costing you more than the money you make.

We understand that the reality of many small to medium sized business is doing what you do best, day in and day out. It’s not normally not exciting.

Whether openly acknowledged or not, the truth is that most business owners operate a business with the hope of making lots of money. Otherwise they would work as employees. Other motivations of operating a business are to be independent e.g. be your own boss, and to pursue a passion. Being your own boss and pursing a passion are worthy goals. However, you still need to make sure your business is making sufficient profit, to achieve your goals. We help our clients to make money. Not to grow for the sake of size, as size does not equal profit.
