Billings and Ellis is a personalised full-service accountancy firm specialising in these areas:

If you’re looking for experienced auditors in Melbourne, Graham Morris is the firm’s senior audit partner and is an ASIC Registered Company Auditor. Look no further before talking to Graham about your auditing requirements.

We are your go-to cloud accountants for the set-up and administration of leading cloud accounting solutions: Xero and Xero add-ons. Enjoy auto-uploads, the freedom of updating your accounts data from anywhere, and many more benefits.

Relief from the hassles associated with establishing and maintaining corporate entities, trusts, partnerships, associations, etc. Company structures, business name registrations – we’re your corporate affairs ‘concierge’ service.

The goal of effective estate planning is to ensure the welfare of dependants, the security of assets, and effective business succession, whilst minimising any taxes. Don’t postpone until it’s too late for decisions – consider estate planning.

There are many situations where expert forensic accountants can be required: Family Law matters; business sales; compensation and damages claims; financial discrepancies; disputes over estates, business contracts, and more.

To help your business grow you need an expert small business accountant who really understands your business. Hospitality, farming, tradies, retail, medical, IT and transport are just a few of the industry sectors we understand in depth.

We’re here to help you achieve the retirement lifestyle you deserve with personal wealth creation, cost-effective fixed-fee SMSF set-up and administration, and growth strategies for investments and superannuation. 

As your tax accountants, we’ll take the hassle out of tax accounting and optimise all of the benefits available through our up-to-the-minute knowledge of taxation legislation and thorough understanding of your business and personal situation.
