What We Do
We have three distinctive divisions in our firm. In a nutshell…
Tax and advisory services.
We take care of all your tax planning, tax returns and compliance requirements. We will also help you to grow your business through decent, regular analysis. Learn more…
Outsourcing for business owners.
If you have, or need, an internal accountant we can handle any task for less than half of what you pay now for an employee in Australia (with the exception of year-end tax returns). Whether it’s a process (e.g. bank reconciliation), or half/full-time staff we’ve got it covered. Historically this was only available to large global businesses. Now it’s available to ALL businesses. Learn more…
Staff leasing for accounting firms.
We assist accounting firms to hire experienced CPAs at 20% of the cost they normally pay for staff in Australia. The staff work from our Manila office and with our experienced team. We have been running our own firm like this for two years and it works exceptionally well. Learn more…
Who We AreWe (Mark Cottle and Jon Ryall) spent several years working in Chartered Accounting firms and businesses before starting Frontline. We are entrepreneurs and are passionate about building businesses. We speak to our clients in plain English, and your experience with us will be like no other accountant you have dealt with before. More detailed bio…
We are a software development business, with a unique product that automates all of the onerous functions that go into managing legal/regulatory compliance for all types of organisations, big and small. We need sophisticated accounting services. Over the past few years, we have moved from a bookkeeper, to an employed accountant, to Frontline. Each change has been a step-up in competence, productivity and outcomes.
I am really glad we moved to Frontline.
Our Frontline Accountant brings experience right into the business we could not otherwise obtain. Our systems have been streamlined enabling us to allocate basic functions to our Clerical Officer, ongoing flaws in our Balance Sheet that our other accounting company didn’t fix have been dealt with (enabling us to obtain bank financing for future growth), and we are now getting real time feeds on our cash and credit position, and business performance reporting. They take the time and have the experience to really understand our business, our goals and our strategies.
In sourcing the accounting function with Frontline has made sense and delivered great outcomes. They are a great company and a partner in our goals.

When I took my business to Frontline Accounting I was basically out of control. Various lodgements were late and I had no idea what to do to bring order back to my business. I had been so focused on growing my business I neglected the financial side of things too long.
Within a few weeks Frontline managed to get my business onto Xero, update everything and bring order and control back to my life. I have deeply appreciated the work they did for me and look forward to a long relationship with them in the future.
I didn’t know accountants like this existed before and am thankful they are helping me now.

I engaged Frontline Accounting to do a Xero implementation for my business and do our regular tax and accounting work.
The result was more than I expected. The team at Frontline worked through some challenging issues and not only did they deliver more than they promised I now have the ability to understand the numbers in my business.
No accountant ever took the time to help me understand the numbers before in a way that makes sense. I now have control and visibility over my financial results.

My business has grown substantially in the last 10 years, but I had a feeling it could be doing a lot better. I wasn’t all that confident in my numbers and cashflow was very tight.
Frontline Accounting came in and examined my books from top to bottom and was able to find around $50k in additional tax refunds. They showed me the true position of my business and helped us get our internal systems up to speed. They are now working with my team to formulate a plan for the future.
I have total confidence in Frontline’s knowledge and professionalism. They are a great asset to have as a true ‘trusted advisor’

At the point we engaged Frontline Accounting we were a start-up business and totally overwhelmed by things that had to be done. The guys at Frontline were like a breath of fresh air for us. They restructured our business to make it more tax effective which will save us thousands of dollars in tax. They also set us up on software that makes the day to day accounting effortless which was really important for us because we hate accounting! Our business is growing fast, and it’s good to have professional advisors like Frontline Accounting at our fingertips.

My landscaping business was swamped by a massive backlog of paperwork and tax issues that needed to be dealt with. I kept putting it off, and it got worse! I contacted Frontline Accounting and they were able to get my business up to date again by sorting out all my bookkeeping and tax issues. Now my business is under control, which means I can stop worrying about my paperwork headache and the tax office…instead I can focus on serving my own customers. Frontline Accounting are like no other accountants I have used before. I am so thankful they are on my team.

When Frontline Accounting got involved we had about 12 months worth of transactions that were not reconciled. It was basically a big mess and I did not want to deal with it! What they did for me was fantastic. They painlessly sifted through all my transactions, got everything up to date, got my BASs lodged, dealt with my tax and implemented some basic systems to keep things under control going forward. I am now on their monthly program and the stress I used to experience has completely disappeared allowing me to focus on my business.

When we first came to Frontline Accounting we had no idea where our business was at. We didn’t understand the numbers, and we were confused how to manage the business. We are experts at cutting hair, not dealing with accounting.
We immediately signed up for their monthly program, and within a short time our accounting system was changed over to Xero, our bookkeeping was brought up to date, reports were prepared explaining where our business is at and what we need to do to grow it. And the best bit, our BAS was lodged early!

I deal with numerous accountants as part of my commercial legal work. You need to understand one thing – Frontline Accounting are genuinely different to any other accounting firm I have come across. They think outside the box and they couple that fresh, creative mindset with solid workable solutions that can be implemented to improve any business.

My tax was out of control when I contacted Frontline Accounting. I had five years of returns not done – and probably not going to be done any time soon had they not helped me. They sorted it all out, helped me to manage the mess and then I received a healthy refund from the tax office. Good outcome. Thanks Frontline!
Frontline Accounting delivered a lot more than they promised. I have not seen an accounting firm ever do that before. In fact I don’t think any professional services firm I have used has done that. They were diligent in getting our business on track and ensuring our accounting and tax issues were resolved.
I have been in business for many years and my previous accountant turned up once a year to do my tax. Frontline have gone so much further, offering proactive advice and making sure we understood what was happening and delivering services that are useful to us.
If you are a small or medium size business owner and you don’t have Frontline on your team you are missing out. They bring real and useful solutions to the table.
Thanks for the difference you made in my business Frontline.

Polelicious grew rapidly from an idea to an established business over the last couple of years.
During that time I had not engaged the services of an accountant. I wish I had found Frontline Accounting earlier – it would have saved me a lot of headaches as well as money.
Frontline cleaned everything up and got our systems in order to enable us to grow to the next level. There is nothing I have to worry about anymore concerning the accounting and taxation in my business. Frontline take care of the lot including the bookkeeping.
They have been proactive with me in calling me and offering me suggestions and ideas on how to improve what we do. I didn’t know accountants like this existed and my husband has noticed the reduced stress in our home now.
I recommend Frontline for any business owner. They really have removed a burden from my life.
