Your local Accountants & Business Tax Advisors

A long history of accounting success stories

Think back to the super-trendy eighties, when big hair and perms were a must, fluoro mis-matched socks were perfectly acceptable, shoulder pads made you look a bit like a wrestler, and Madonna was blaring from your Walkman. Those were the days! 

It was also the creation of our business, with David Hoffman, Janet Stops, Robert Love and John Andricciola playing a game of musical chairs as we moved around Melbourne. When the music stopped, John landed the firm right in the heart of the airport vicinity of Essendon Fields. 

Since 2002, John has continued to build a dynamic business with a solid reputation based on the team’s sound ethics and ability to help their clients make the most of their money. 

With a need to expand to accommodate more clients, Hoffman & Stops merged with Harvest Accountants in July 2017. Clients now have access to a bigger pool of accountants to help with their personal or business tax needs.

You need to understand your numbers, so we’ll explain
