About Us

Aspire Business Advisers Pty Ltd is a full financial services and accounting firm that was established in 1974 and traded as PDG & Associates until 2013 when the business was rebranded to the Aspire Business Advisers.

The firm is headed by our three partners, Lou Krstevski, Sebastian Di Mauro and David Blakis. As you can probably tell from our website, we are not your average suburban firm of CPA's who just keep the financial score for our clients.

Conveniently located in East Ivanhoe, our passion and focus is helping small business owners build a better, more profitable and valuable business. Our slogan really captures our mission of, 'Building Your Business & Planning Your Future'. While business owners are our primary focus we also service a number of individuals and helping you grow your personal and family wealth is a key part of our offering.

Over the past 15 years we have developed some specialist skills and we are recognised as business start-up and self managed superannuation experts. We have literally mentored hundreds of business owners through the various stages of their business life cycle from start up right through to sale.

Our marketing expertise is one of our major points of difference and to help our clients succeed we have also developed a number of consulting tools including checklists, templates and spreadsheets. We recognise the fact that marketing can be the difference between success and failure for a business which is why we offer you cost effective marketing strategies around your branding, website, corporate brochure and social media strategy.

Our pro-active approach further distinguishes us from other compliance based accounting practices in Melbourne. We focus on strategies to improve your bottom line and use industry benchmarks to compare your business’ performance against the competition so you know what is working in your business and what needs working on.

If you want more than just a number cruncher contact us today and let's get to work on building your business, your profits and your wealth.

Our Purpose Statement

Our purpose is to help people achieve and maintain financial security and independence to enable the fulfilment of personal life goals.

Our Approach

Our approach is personal and we endeavour to build long lasting relationships with our clients. We really strive to understand you and your business and recognise communication is the key ingredient in building successful relationships. We pride ourselves on our committment to 'face to face' contact with you which means taking the time to visit you at your business premises whenever possible. This provides us with a better understanding of your business, your products and services, your finance requirements and your daily operations.

Our clients span a wide range of professions and industries but over time we have developed areas of expertise in several niche markets including builders and tradespeople, solicitors and real estate agents plus the medical professions including GP's, dentists, physiotherapists and optometrists. We also service a growing number of local manufacturers.

Our Services

Our range of accounting, tax and financial planning services are both broad and deep.

We take a great deal of pride watching clients progress through the various stages of their business life cycle.

Being a proactive firm, we have responded to the needs of our clients and added a range of new services as required.
