About Me

Orston Business Services 1

After graduating from university, I worked in the Melbourne-based ‘Private Business Divisions’ of KPMG and Ernst & Young (two of the ‘Big Four’ global Chartered Accounting firms), qualifying as a Chartered Accountant in 1998.

Then over the next few years I worked in Sydney and London, providing professional accounting and advisory services to some large corporate brands, before returning to Melbourne to take up senior roles in a number of public accounting firms, servicing small to medium size businesses.

I decided to launch Orston Business Services in order to continue my relationships with my clients in a more rewarding capacity.  In particular, I have enjoyed being able to foster strong working relationships with my clients by being able to provide an exceptional level of personal service and professional advice.  In short, I bring ‘High Street’ expertise to my local business clients.

I know if my client’s business is a success then that prosperity is shared by their family as well as the local community…everyone benefits.

I don’t specialise in any one particular industry.

Rather, I am a ‘generalist’ (just like a GP), which means that I am able to stand in your shoes, to form a holistic view of your business and to tailor my professional services and advice specifically to suit your needs.

What are my stakes in the ground – my non-negotiables?

As my client, I must:

list itemEarn your respect by delivering consistently against your expectations

list itemWork hard for your interests so that I deserve the privilege of having you and keeping you as my client

list itemDo this by guarding the success of your business – mentoring you to achieve success – articulating your best options as you move forward and grow

list itemPut your interests at the centre of my business world

How I define my success

My success is defined by:

list itemHow easy I make it for you

list itemThe growth and success of your business

list itemThe strength of the business relationship I build with my clients…because I know that I must earn your respect by exceeding your expectations

How I work with my clients

list itemI think about your business like it’s my own. I provide my clients with valuable insights that help them to navigate ambiguity and position their businesses for growth. That’s because I take care of the financial things that matter, so you can focus on doing what you do best and what matters most – running your business.

list itemI partner with my clients to ensure that their business reporting requirements are done confidentially, correctly, with integrity, on time and in a professional manner

list itemI help you to steer a path through the business minefield of taxation

list itemMy client list is deliberately small…and I want to keep it that way so I can give you my personal attention

What my clients say about me

“Tracey is awesome. Being on top of the accounting and tax game is a given. Taking a real interest in her client’s life and business is what sets Tracey apart. My wife and I have loved working with Tracey (for more than 12 years now) and have happily referred her to a number of our friends and colleagues along the way.”

“We have had Tracey as our accountant over several years. When we first met, our business was a mess. We didn’t know where to start. With Tracey’s help and knowledge, we have turned the business into a steady profitable machine. Tracey is diligent, intelligent and a pleasure to deal with as well as being a great accountant. Tracey has been instrumental in shaping our company and we couldn’t recommend her more highly.”
