Roberts & Cowling


In 2003, our founders, Ben Roberts and David Cowling (aged 19) made a decision to dedicate their lives to helping business owners build amazing businesses. They knew that accountants were stale and that the only way they could achieve their objectives was to create an accounting firm where meaningful client relationships foster smart, innovative outcomes.

We make business easier for life. Owning a business is hard. Making a business meet its owners expectations and aspirations is even harder.

Therefore, we act proactively to assist our clients in all aspects of their business. Understanding our client’s goals and objectives, both personally and professionally, help us tailor solutions to make the most of every business.


Feedback of Clients

Ben Roberts supports me as a business owner. He pushes me to learn more and to grow the business, but in a way I want it to grow, not just the way it should appear on paper. I trust Ben to provide me with advice and support that helps me make the business what I want it to be, but also pushing me that little but more as he has faith in what I am trying to achieve. I have referred a number of clients to R&C and have no hesitation in doing this again.

This is a letter to outline how beneficial Ben Roberts and team at Roberts and Cowling have been for the growth of my business since we first started working together, back in 2013. I produce and sell fine art for a living, establishing and operating a business in this field was something I would have found very challenging without Ben Roberts on my team. Coming from the art world I knew very little about how I should structure my business and set it up to run as profitable as it possibly could. Ben and his team knew exactly how I should approach this structure, taking into consideration my big aspiration for future. I was lucky enough to find some success with my artwork series’ and exhibitions through 2014 and 2015. I relied heavily on Ben through this quick rise in activity and believe he helped me make some of my wisest business decisions through this time. I felt I could explain my creative ideas with Ben, and he was capable of helping me understand it from a business and accounting sense. In early 2015, I planned to move to New York, to seize opportunities in this vibrant city. Ben and his team helped me understand the tax liabilities in both countries and managed to structure the business in such a way we pay the lowest tax possible while I’m working in the United States. At this stage, Ben has become a partner in most decision the business has to make, and very important to how the business operates.

We are representatives of the Ascendia Professional Network, which provides you with access, when prudent, to all professions relevant to matters impacting on your business and tax affairs:

  • Tax
  • Business

  • Financial
  • Legal

Having access to the Ascendia Professional Network means where necessary or prudent, your ascendia professional public accountants and you are able to get assistance from other qualified professionals such as commercial, property & estates lawyers, and qualified and independently ASIC licensed CFP investment managers.

This means you get from Ascendia a proactive recommendation to consider additional issues from the other professionals where our Accountants note legal or investment issues require advice.

However we are very happy to take direction from our clients at the pace that they are wanting to move – its your business and your money. Our investment managment and legal services are purely professonal operations on fee for service basis only. We do not push service, we are not salespeople and all staff are on salary.

Ascendia Accountants is able to act, where requested by a client, as a useful and experienced business resource – giving the benefit of its considerable commercial experience gained with many clients over the years – in most cases at no additional cost as a value added part of doing buiness with Ascendia.


Feedback of Clients
Our investment and business plan ideally required various professional services delivered in a coordinated and collaborative way. I mean we needed the services of a firm that could practically deliver tax accounting, super accounting, commercial law, property law – even technical bookkeeping outcomes – at the right time and place. We have found that Ascendia does deliver. Ascendia delivered this through an action plan they documented with me – to ensure my investment plan was implemented – and then they worked with me until it was in place supporting my group at each step of the way.

The tax advisory and accounting team have been able to understnd my business – and to provide me with the accounting and reporting approach that allows me to substantiate highly tax effective and compliant outcomes for my information & communciations business. They are open minded and willing to learn about these types of innovative businesses and to assist with an opeator like me who operates around the world and yet resides in Australia to ensure the Australian Taxation Office also understand it as required to deliver me the optimal tax and compliance outcomes.

The Super Accounting team at Ascendia are proactive, for instance, they take all the pain out of dealing with centre link – each year they send directly to centre link a report outlining my superannuation and investment portfolio assets and income as part of their service to me – without me even having to ask.

The service provided by C&N Finance was nothing short of exceptional. The results were also exceptional…. Jenna was calm, reassuring, knowledgeable practical …. Dawn was non nonsense, proactive and insightful.

Elite Tax Solutions has been my business adviser in tax and accounting affairs for a number of years. I can recommend them without any hesitation. Willie Chung, the principal of the Elite Tax Solutions understands us, small business owner and provides us with personalised services which we do not get from all our previous accountants.

Being on-board with Elite Tax Solutions was one of the best business decisions we ever made. They help us not only in dealing with our tax issues but they go further by treating our business as their own and they are also proactive in helping us grow our business through his extensive knowledge. Having Elite Tax Solutions as my adviser is like having a direct line for all tax, business and accounting queries and the response I get from them is so quick and accurate.

We had three years’ worth of tax refunds to apply for and also a rental property – lots of work for Willie but he made us a priority and had the job done so quickly and achieved great returns. Thanks Willie!

Xperion Accountants


We love number crunching, analysing, extrapolating (that’s one of those terms accountants use to make themselves appear less boring) – all of these things are mind numbingly boring for you, but it’s heart pumpingly exciting for us.

And that’s a good thing – for both of us. You get to pass on your boring old bookkeeping, BAS and end of year tax returns, while we get to dive into the details. That way, you’re free to get on with the things that fire you up, while we get on with the things that don’t.

So if you are a Brisbane or Sydney based business focused on building a strong, successful and scaleable business, then we’re the boring accountants you need to have.

Some people think accountants are boring because they are reliable, predictable and responsible… and in our case, they’d be right.

We’re reliable because we’re always available to answer your questions. Any opportunity to talk numbers with you makes our day, which is why we don’t charge for phone calls and respond to your emails within 24 hours. And because time is money, we typically get your job done in 14 days or less – trust us on this, we’re too boring to bother lying about it.

We’re predictable because we offer the same high standard of service to every single client. Whether you’re a start-up, solo business or larger enterprise, you can trust us to implement long-term, practical solutions that will help your business prosper.

Last but not least, we’re responsible because like all true professionals we believe in getting things right the first time. If we make a mistake (and we rarely do), we risk damaging our relationship with you – and that’s the last thing we want. But we’re confident in our boring responsibleness. So confident in fact, that we only work on a fixed fee basis. That way, if we make a mistake, you’re not the one who pays for it.

So if all of that makes us boring, then we’ll wear it with pride.
