Business advice for creative business owners

No matter your background, expertise, or experience, starting and growing a business is a challenging process and a steep learning curve. So it’s critical to ensure that you select the right team to support you on your entrepreneurial journey. 

The one thing that’s certain, is that you will not make the right decision every time. In fact, there’s often no “right” decision or answer. But what counts is understanding – in advance of course – the outcomes and the implications of the available options. At BAND, our experienced team understands what’s required to improve those business decisions and the likelihood of achieving your goals.

We are much more than just accountants who say they can offer business advice. We’ve worked with many successful agencies, architects, designers, musicians and sporting individuals and businesses, and on top of this, many of the team have extensive experience running their own. We have the experience to support and challenge your understanding and thinking.  

Tax Incentives


There are a range of tax incentives specifically designed to help support the development of your business – and they work at all stages – from start up, to development and growth and ultimately through to sale and exit.

In our experience, there are too many businesses that are not making the most of the Tax Incentives that are available. Whatever the reason, at BAND, we aim to do everything we can to ensure you have a proper understanding of what’s available and when it can and should be used.
