At Keats Accounting, we provide high-quality specialised accounting and taxation services for individuals and businesses. We have a holistic approach to managing your financial affairs, to ensure that you are in control of your finances. We are a boutique accounting practice doing things differently for families and small businesses.

We are passionate about helping our clients to get a full understanding about their financial affairs so that they can grow their family wealth. We work differently to other accountants – we invite our clients to become part of our family.

Clients are invited to drop in for fantastic organic coffee or call us any time they need to without worrying they will get an extra bill. We are a pram friendly business and have a children’s area, so you are welcome to bring them with you to your appointment. Sam has a background in one of the largest suburban firms in Melbourne so she has the skills and expertise of a large firm and offers you, along with her expanding team of staff, the personalised service of a small firm. We are also passionate about living and supporting local community groups and are active in the non-profit sector.

Here is our Keats Accounting brochure. We are proud to be a member of the Frankston Business Network.


We are delighted to announce that Sam has been nominated for a Soar Award, in the category of service businesses.  These awards recognise outstanding business women on the Peninsula.  Winners will be announced in November.


We are gearing up for the new financial year and would like to remind clients that if you do require an urgent booking to have your tax return completed quickly that you phone ahead and make an appointment. We are already taking bookings for alternate Wednesday evenings and Saturday mornings.
