A really good coffee machine is still just a machine. But when you add human skill, judgement and taste those beans become a beautiful beverage. And we always offer you an excellent coffee, or other drink, when you come and see us.
Our bespoke approach
Bespoke is a word you might hear more in the clothing industry than accounting. Made-to-order, made-to-measure, made uniquely for you. We tailor our accounting services to perfectly fit you and your business, because we think it’s best for your business.
Get the most effective business structure in place. We can make sure that your business structure will maximise financial, asset protection and taxation benefits for you.
We want all our clients to grow. Our advice and mentoring helps you do just that. Get the answers to all those questions you have thought about, and some you haven’t.
We can help you plan ahead, so that you can be confident that your business is ready for sale when the opportunity or need arises. When it’s time for you to move on we can value your business and shares, and offer expert advice on any potential sale opportunities.
We have helped many businesses acquire other businesses. We guide you through the acquisition process, from planning to deal to completion.
You take care of growing your business and we’ll take care of those everyday financial tasks. We can handle as many as you want to throw at us, freeing you up to focus on making money.
Get set up, trained and supported on Xero. We recommend the right cloud solutions for you, including payroll, invoicing, workflow and more.
We’ll take care of all the stuff that every business has to deal with including tax, financial reporting, compliance, and we can stitch together a strong financing proposal when you need it.

Clients from a variety of industries count on Matt’s financial, taxation, accounting and business advice. He’s also our accounting systems and IT specialist, working alongside our clients’ in-house accountants to set up and support their accounting systems.
Brendon really enjoys working alongside our clients giving them the right advice when they need it. Funnily enough our clients enjoy that too. Brendon joined Pocock Tong Trass in 2006 and got his name painted on the door when he became a director in 2017. What really floats Brendon’s boat is sharing his knowledge and helping you create a business that rewards you with the lifestyle that you want.
Anna knows all about the day-to-day issues that businesses face, thanks in part to the fact that she’s the director responsible for our practice management. Her empathetic approach helps our clients succeed, and exceed expectations. With 27 years as a CA, and 20 of those as a director of Pocock Tong Trass, Anna is always ready to roll up her sleeves and get stuck in. She also offers valued advice on Strategic Human Resource Management, Financing and Cash-flow, and lots more.
Business-people are fond of saying “it’s a dog eat dog world out there”, but we’ve gone one better – we’re a business that’s actually got a dog. Alfie – the official Pocock Tong Trass canine. When you step inside our office, he’ll give you an excited and noisy welcome. When not in the office, Alfie can often found holding court at Little Beer Quarter (LBQ), where he’s developed a bit of a cult following.
