Private businesses are the engine room of the Australian economy. They cover all sectors, employ millions of people, and are key to Australia’s reputation for stable, quality goods and services both domestically and internationally.

Much of this success is due to personal dedication and sacrifices, as well as the financial investment of the leaders themselves.

But often these business owners and leaders can find themselves thinly spread: managing the core functions that makes their companies tick, while also having to run the business and meeting their accounting and reporting obligations.

Grant Thornton works alongside private businesses across Australia – and international players looking to Australia for their investments and operations – on all your tax and accounting needs. From setting up your business and processes and meeting your tax and regulatory obligations, to evolving your structures and strategies, we help you build more optimised financial structures that grow complementary to your business ones.
