Our Achievements

Albert Einstein once said:
“Concern for man and his fate must always form the chief interest of all technical endeavors”

Getting our client what they deserved.
A new client was referred, having been penalised by the ATO following an audit. The ATO wanted around $400k to settle the matter. We reviewed the files and discovered that the law had been incorrectly applied, and that he was actually owed a small refund. We substantiated the claim and worked through the issues we had discovered with the client and ATO auditor, who reversed their decision and eliminated the $400k liability.
Business Advisory in Action.
A bigger case study on this can be found on our blog page here. In summary, our client wanted to exit their business, but the business was not worth much. Our client taught us their bungees. We assessed the numbers. We developed a model that was used to set key milestones and targets. Step by step together, we made incremental changes to their business. It took five years, but what was once a nil value business eventually sold and allowed them to retire with over $2m.
When it goes Bad -Bankruptcy
A new client came to us as a distressed creditor of their bank. Asset rich but cash poor, the bank were demanding full repayment within 48 hours or the assets would be repossessed. Within 72 hours we had appeased the bank and obtained a further 10 days grace, had three properties valued and found a short term funder allowing a restructure. Assets were then slowly sold down to repay the full debt within 4 months, with our client retaining his desired assets.

Getting it Done

“Life is like riding a bicycle. To keep your balance you must keep moving.” – Albert Einstein

Learn – The Why.

We need to know your journey to help you grow. We ask and we question so that we ”get” it. Our insight coupled with your journey and goals set the foundation.

Skills and Knowledge – The Help

Our people are or have been business owners. We know the cash flow pressures, the people issues, the lack of hours in a day and the bewilderment of a bank or profit statement that makes you wonder if it is all worth it.

Develop the Plan – The How part !

Why do people buy from you? What on average do they spend with you, and are there opportunities to increase that? Are your people happy? Who are your competitors? What are they doing well?We ask questions that truly drive your buinsess.

Evolve your Thinking

We will help you evolve, think differently, look at your business from a different set of eyes, and look at the possibilities. And then put it all in writing.

Implement – The Do.

We work with you to make change. To capture data. To monitor your performance. To refine. To achieve. We are there every step of the way.

Report and reload – the next steps.

Periodically we match your performance against the plan and together we find out why. Better data is better decision making. We then help you set the next level of goals.

Did you know – why we chose Albert Einstein?

IGNITUS is Latin for re-ignition.

Albert was not only brilliant, but he re-ignited so much of the world’s thinking and challenged people to question and not to be sheep.

Success means many things to different people. As accountants, we want you to have financial success and to do everything that you must. But we also want you to understand, to challenge and to measure success differently – to measure what it by what it means to YOU.

We aspire to RE_IGNITE you and Albert’s philosophies resonate with our values, but we know we cannot change the world.

So we will let the great man express why we believe an accounting firm like IGNITUS should exist.


I believe in standardizing automobiles. I do not believe in standardizing human beings."
