Our aim is simple…

“To be the best goddamn accounting practice on the Mornington Peninsula!”

The key attributes that make us such are:

In a nutshell, our clients get what they need, quickly.

Our story is long…

In October 1987, David Livingstone ventured into small business and established an accounting practice from his home in Somerville, which built up to prepare over 1000 tax returns annually.  In October 1999, David joined forces with Peter Beckett and together they formed Livingstone Beckett & Associates Pty Ltd.

At this point, the business had well and truly outgrown David’s house, and Livingstone Beckett & Associates relocated to Shop 4/1085 Frankston-Flinders Road, Somerville.  By the end of 2009, Livingstone Beckett & Associates were lodging well over 2000 tax returns annually, and had grown to employ 9 staff.  As the Frankston-Flinders Road office was at bursting point, Livingstone Beckett & Associates relocated again; this time to Shop 3/4 Eramosa Road East, Somerville, where you can find us today.

In April 2018, LBA transformed again, as David & Peter welcomed Luke Wade on board as a third partner. This change has seen Livingstone Beckett & Associates Pty Ltd change its name to LBW Advisory Pty Ltd.

LBW currently employs 13 staff and services well over 2500 clients from all walks of life, all over Australia. We have been blessed to find loyal, professional staff that have helped shape our business and the quality of service we provide to our clients. Every day we are reminded of the key role our people and clients play in the continual growth of our firm. For that, we are constantly grateful..

LBW Advisory continues to expand, with a focus upon SMSF and Business taxation and accounting,. alongside preparing individual tax returns.

We are truly excited for what the future holds, not only for LBW Advisory, but for our clients and community as a whole.

Our people make us great…
