The AFR confirms more than half of the surveyed firms nominated business, tax and risk advisory as the fastest growing parts of their business. Advisory now accounts for about 29 per cent of revenue at the top firms, up 2 percentage points from last year, while audit accounts for an average of just 10 per cent of income. These figures exclude the big four firms, which did not provide a breakdown of income. The list was produced by the Financial Review in partnership with Chartered Accountants ANZ. The rankings are based on firm revenue.
“For the last few years, AFR’s report refers to clients needing broader service offerings from their accountant, beyond delivering on compliance requirements. We couldn’t agree more. Clients are making sense of their own financial data and our role is increasingly about what to do next.” Peter Pryn, Director, Hall Chadwick Melbourne
