About us

The team behind Lipins Partners.

We are an innovative firm that provides our business clients with advice when they need it. With the advent of real time accounting reporting via the Cloud based product Xero, which we adopted in our own firm two years ago, we can view your your financial results in real time and use this to assist you to make your business thrive, prosper and grow - Whilst minimising & planning for tax imposts.

Our advice is both service based and entrepreneurial. Our Directors are readily accessible and the cost of our various services are known to you upfront. We pride ourselves on delivering them in a timely manner.

Our History

The firm has roots back to 1958 when one of the antecedent firms commenced in Camberwell with the other side of the firm dating back to Hawthorn in 1980.

We have spent the last 20 years at our current location with no plans to move anytime soon. This stability has been one reason that we have attracted a very loyal team who have shunned the bright lights of the CBD for an opportunity to be part of a firm in the leafy Eastern Suburbs.

Our current team of approximately 25 include a number who have been with us in excess of 10 and 20 years. Clients are rewarded with very familiar faces who are very eager to look after the needs of our clients in a professional & courteous manner with a large degree of the personal touch.

Xero Accounting

Cloud based accounting with Xero is the tool the industry has been waiting for. We adopted it for our own firm over two years ago and immediately saw the benefits and have since encouraged our clients to switch.

Real time reporting with a fraction of the processing time allows us to have the conversations with our clients to help them grow their profits, cashflow, wealth and at the same time protect these assets for future generations to enjoy.

We are Gold Xero partners and have considerable expertise in implementation and conversion from MYOB and other software packages.

Our Approach

We take a very personal interest in our client’s affairs and pride ourselves on both the Directors and Managers being very accessable. We are very happy to travel to your premises which can give us an insight into your business or equally you are always welcome to visit our comfortable offices in Balwyn.

We like to ensure that all risk and opportunities are carefully considered when we take on an engagement and will undertake a complimentary review of areas you may need help.

There is no guessing as to what the investment in our services will be as we prepare quotes for any engagements undertaken.

Our attention to detail is second to none and we ensure you can sleep well in the event that the ATO enquiry is forthcoming.
