"We approached Voltage Accounting (previously known as Abacus Associates Pty Ltd), six years ago because we wanted an accountant who didn't just do our figures but would support the growth of the institute and help manage our tax.  The result has seen our company have significant growth, expanding to new premises and the confidence to take on new projects.

As we have grown, we have learnt that the Income Tax Return is just the compliance part of running and operating a  Business. It is more important to get this compliance work done sooner in the new Financial Year so that we can monitor the performance of the Company via the preparation of regular, up to date, Financial Statements prepared by Ian and his team on a regular basis, knowing these figures are accurate. This in turn gives us a real time indication on how the business is performing and eliminates the possibility of receiving prior year Income Tax Returns, late in the following Financial Year. when it is then too late to do anything other than lodge those returns. Having this issue addressed now also ensures we can address any other issues before they escalate.  

One thing we have been very impressed by is how they answer any question, big or small, promptly and without judgement.  Nothing ever seems to be a bother.  They will also explain everything in layman terms and will help us to come up with relevant solutions.

I have found the experience of using their services a great solution to our accounting needs. Ian and his team have become an integral part of our business.  They have a genuine interest in the well-being of our company and it is a support to know we can call on them whenever there is a need.

I recommend Voltage Accounting to people who need exceptional accounting services and a business partner who has a real desire in helping their clients to grow their businesses."

We have been working with Voltage Accounting Pty Ltd (Formerly Abacus Associates Pty Ltd) since June 6th 2011.

Our previous accountant had not been meeting our requirements and after our initial meeting with Ian we had no hesitation in handing over our accounts to him.

We have been continuously impressed with the service, quality, ethics and communications; Ian and his team were handed a business with no account methodology, conflicting information & a series of reversal transactions that made no sense to anybody.

With an absolute minimum of fuss, we've joined the 21st century and now have our records in order and are beginning to understand some of the smarter methods of doing business. Primarily this must be attributed to Ian's excellent communication skills and easy manner; in our experience not easily found nor readily available.

Our most recent rushed demands for P&L's has further impressed upon us the professionalism and service that we've found with Voltage Accounting Pty Ltd / Abacus Accountants.

Our most sincere thanks and gratitude.

I Spoke to Ian Prescott prior to starting my business originally operating as a Sole Trader. He helped in getting the accounting system off the ground and I was on the front foot from day one. Ian and his team provided invaluable support and knowledge in recommending the use of MYOB and the most suitable version to allow growth to be easy. When meeting with Ian for the first time he made me feel at ease and answered all of my questions. It really was too easy, Ian organised everything for me and I just had to focus on the day to day business knowing that all my accounting needs were taken care of.

During the time I have been with Ian and his team, I have been taught a lot and really have grown as a business. Ian helped when we grew and assisted with transforming from a sole trader to now operating as a company acting as a corporate trustee for a trust. We were advised on the pros and cons of this set up and when we decided to go ahead Ian did all the paperwork.

This new set up has benefited us two fold.  I have the confidence that our tax liabilities have been reduced as best as possible and we also now have quarterly management accounts prepared so that tax liabilities can be limited in real time instead of waiting for financial years returns to be completed which could leave it too late to act.

Everything is always well organised and when something needs to happen, Ian and his team are quick to get onto it and sort these things out for us. We have definitely improved our processes and are more aware of what our responsibilities are with regards to tax and all money related issues.

I would definitely recommend Voltage Accounting for anyone looking for an accounting firm that just doesn’t look after your accounts; they look after you as a person and as a business.
