    About Hillyer Riches

    Good accounting is a game changer because it’s not just about the numbers, it’s about helping you manage the performance of your business.

    A team of highly specialised tax accountants within a firm established over 3 decades ago, we offer quality accounting consultation in the Melbourne area. Learn more about us.


    We’re great at the high-level conceptual stuff as well as the detail.

    If you want us to, we’ll help you turn your vision into a finely honed plan. We enjoy brainstorming with you, scribbling down notes and coming back to you with a practical concept map of how to get to your goal.

    We know how to run our own business so we can help you with yours.

    We’ve been in business for over 30 years. Our experience growing our business means we don't just talk about theory, we give practical advice that helps you achieve real results.

    We’re accountants. We get finances and numbers.

    We can read a balance sheet and P&L like a conductor reads a musical score. We can spot the core health of a business, knowing where the cash has gone and how it should be used.

    We help you get your business model right.

    If you’re an early stage investor, just starting your business from scratch or growing it to something great, our senior partners will learn what makes your business unique and help you manage cash flow and costs, learn business disciplines and avoid costly mistakes.

    We’re part of your team.

    We are a proactive accounting firm. We learn your needs and share your objectives. We’re dedicated to helping you grow and developing your business throughout the year. We’re always at the end of the phone and are happy to catch up over a coffee and a spreadsheet at any time.

    We help you through the tax and regulatory maze.

    While tax and compliance may not be your highest day-to-day priority, neglecting them can create costly problems down the track. We find the right tax strategy (concessions and exemptions) so that your journey to business success is smooth and smart. Support from our specialists helps you start right and keep things right without the stress of uncertainty or burden of doing it all yourself.

    Hillyer Riches is a team of specialists with a real interest in your business. If that sounds like the kind of accountants you need, it's time to take us up on a free consultation.

    Travis has provided outstanding accounting service and superannuation advice. He and his firm are extremely organised, punctual,completely reliable and always accessible. Two earlier service providers were a disaster so he also had to sort out a mess, which he did extremely efficiently. I have no hesitation in strongly recommending his services.

I continue to recommend Travis as I have done in the past, and in the knowledge that clients are achieving high-quality outcomes under his care.
