Over a history of more than 40 years, we have grown a sustainable and ethical company that now spans three offices across the state.

360 Partners


People often ask us what makes 360 Partners unique and the answer we give is relatively simple. All of our business reporting packages include structured proactive tax planning and it adds significant measurable value to their operations. So not only do we complete your annual reporting (which is typically more “reactive”) but we also review your current year operations and devise a plan for tax optimisation before the year is finished. Its a true proactive solution and few accounting firms include an equivalent solution as part of their standard offering. For us its about adding value rather than just ticking a box and moving on to next year.

However, rather than write an extensive spiel about being “the best” or “the most holistic”, let’s skip to what’s most important to the average small business owner. This is what you should expect (demand) from your business accountants and this is what 360 Partners strives to deliver.

  • The very best technical advice
  • A first-class service every time
  • Value that exceeds our fees

360 Partners are the experts in small business accounting. Our services include financial analysis, implementation of cloud accounting solutions and assisting our clients in managing their financial data.

360 Partners provide a full suite of advisory services designed to really benefit small businesses.

Feedback of Clients

Matt Mufic at MSM has been our company accountant since the implementation of Travelog, our mid office and accounting software, 12 years ago. We have been very happy with his professionalism and expert knowledge right from the start, especially because of his travel background. His advice has been invaluable over the past years. The service provided has been and continues to be exceptional. Travelrite International Pty Ltd would have no hesitation in recommending MSM for your accounting needs.

I highly recommend MSM Accounting. Matt is always available when I call him for any queries that I may have and has been reliable and efficient throughout the time that he has been providing service to my company. Matt and his colleagues always make me feel that I am a priority and always provide excellent service and advice.

When I started my own agency almost a decade ago now, I was referred to Matt at MSM to assist with the financial side of the business. Since then, Matt has helped me with everything from bookkeeping to tax planning. I am convinced there is no-one out there who knows more about what travel agents need when it comes to accounting software and financial advice.
