We have been using HR for our accounting needs since moving to Melbourne in 2012. When we first saw Travis, our finances were in need of complete overhaul, and he took on the task with confidence and professionalism. Since then we have gone on to start a new company / business and restructured and streamlined our personal finances. HR also work closely with the team who manage our superannuation fund and the office staff look after the book keeping / monthly BAS and wages for our business. During the current COVID-19 climate, they have also been helpful in advising of the implications on small business and directing us to ensure we maintain a successful business with minimal financial impact. They are a friendly and conducive group who work well as a team and focus on addressing their clients needs. Would (and have!) highly recommended to others.

I’ve been a client of HR for a number of years.Unlike other firms I’ve used in the past, the staff here actually listen to you and understand your business and challenges that you face. Strategy is discussed in plain English and I’ve come to rely on and trust their advice. I have no hesitation in recommending them whether you’re a business owner or an individual seeking expert advice.

The team at Hillyer Riches are so incredibly helpful and go out of the way to help whenever they can. During a very stressful period where COVID-19 is increasingly making life stressful and difficult, I was contacted by my accountant out of business hours to help me process my financial options. After sleepless nights I was much relieved and felt much more stable due to the help of the Hillyer Riches staff.
