See what some of our awesome clients think about Roberts & Cowling
I have a trusted advisor that genuinely cares about me, my business and someone I can turn to when I need to.
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.
Great to hear that you and your firm is doing great works that’s gaining international recognition in your professional arena!
It’s such a privilege to be asked to write a testimonial for you even though we have yet to really kick off our project. But really thank you for taking us on and providing such excellent advises and directions.
Haha….I’m not good with words…but it is without hesitation and with complete confidence that I can highly recommend David on his services. He’s knowledgeable, someone who thinks outside the box for his clients and also to think from the shoes of his clients! We have had experiences with other accountants but none of them is
like him…who would go the extra mile for his client! Thank You David and your team!
Roberts & Cowling is such an integrated part of our business. Ben sits on the board and is the CFO in our company. R & C provides bookkeeping, fortnightly finance meetings, monthly budget and cash flow updates, annual strategic retreat and the annual reports. Ben is constantly used as a sounding board for new ideas and is also commonly a speaker at our quarterly whole of business meeting in which we fly all representatives around the country to our Brisbane office. There have been some up and downs and I am not sure without guidance from Roberts & Cowling that we would have made it through. This year we are now on track for our largest year from a revenue and profit perspective.

If you’re in the Brisbane area we are conveniently located near ‘The Gabba’ on Logan Rd with free on-site parking. Just get in touch and arrange a time to come in for a coffee and a chat about how we can help you build a better business for life
R&C are first and foremost Brisbane Accountants. While we have clients all over Australia (and even in New York, Hong Kong, Christmas Island and New Zealand), South East Queensland and Brisbane is also home for the vast majority of our clients.
We have some fantastic clients in a wide variety of locations in Brisbane. Some of the most interesting places we have clients in Brisbane and South East Queensland are:
It would be impossible to be an accountant in Brisbane without having clients in the CBD. Interestingly, we have found a significant shift away from small/ medium business being headquartered in the CBD (which can be seen in some of the commercial property vacancy rates). Some of our clients located in the CBD have included dentists, doctors, landscape architects, financial planners, restaurants, cafes and retail.
We have clients that operate out of the Brisbane Markets and have experience with much of the industries that call it home, from fruit brokers to transport. The Brisbane Markets are a hive of activity but also come with a unique set of challenges. Typically business inside the markets are based on low margin, high volume transactions. This can provide interesting challenges around cashflow shortages, market risk and business valuations. We love visiting the markets to see our clients and witnessing the amazing way the markets operate.
Fortitude Valley may actually be one of the hottest locations in Brisbane for businesses. We have a great number of clients in a wide range of industries who love our accounting services. Some of the industries we work with in “The Valley” include:
The benefit of Fortitude Valley is its proximity to the CBD while maintaining fantastic access. With our office being so close by, it makes sense that we have a fantastic feel for business here.
Located an hour and a half north of Brisbane, Kilcoy is a small regional town with a fantastic small business base. We often visit Kilcoy and our clients. The industry in Kilcoy is amazingly varied for a relatively small place and is represented by the types of clients we have here. We work for dairy farms, laundromats, cafes and transport companies all out of Kilcoy. It’s an excellent place to visit clients and get an appreciation for where some of the relaxed business culture comes from with regional locations so close and impressive within such a short distance from Brisbane.
West End has come of age in a huge way in the last decade. Business has really moved in here and is thriving. Café’s, architects, gyms, builders all work prominently out of West End. The charm of West End is that it hasn’t yet lost its alternative feel and has quite a lot of synergies to Fortitude Valley. Its easy to see why West End will continue to be a hub for enterprise in the long term.
Being based in “The Gabba” for our entire life, R&C has watched the Gabba evolve from poor suburban cousin to a metropolis that will thrive in years to come. Business is really starting to pick up through wonderful new developments, the reactivation of the end of Logan Road and Stones Corner and the realisation that Woolloongabba represents value in regard to its access and proximity to the CBD. Our clients in the Gabba include industries such as medical equipment distribution, real estate, legal and financial planning.
