We Provide Accounting & Bookkeeping Services to the Financial Services Industry
The financial services industry grows more and more complex every year, as do the challenges around compliance. Complying with AFSL obligations is an essential part of business for many financial services organisations, yet this can come with a lot of risks.
Compliance requirements change frequently. ASIC’s financial requirements are tightening every year and it can be difficult to ensure compliance on an ongoing basis. We can assist organisations that hold AFSLs to meet compliance requirements, such as meeting ASIC’s Regulatory Guide 166.
QC Accountants have a long history of working with financial services organisations and offering bespoke service packages to meet their varied needs.
Our aim is to make it as easy as possible for your business to manage your business needs, maintain a sufficient level of regulatory capital, and ensure compliance at all times. We’ll work with you to identify any areas of non-compliance and offer practical custom solutions to address any issues.
We also work to ensure your financial services systems and processes work to support your overall business goals.
We offer financial accounting services including:
- AFSL Accountants. Financial services organisations have specific requirements. We help set up systems and structures to help organisations meet ASIC requirements and manage their day-to-day AFSL compliance issues. We can also help businesses liaise with auditors and streamline their auditing processes.
- Business Advisory Services. We understand the risks and liabilities that come with working in the financial services industry. We work with financial service businesses to minimise risk, ensure compliance, and develop strategies to help you achieve your overarching business goals.

- Tax Returns & BAS Lodgements. Our tax experts will take advantage of any industry-specific benefits for you and work hard to unearth any deductions you may be entitled to that are unique to the financial services industry.
- General-Purpose Financial Reporting. The financial services industry has a number of strict requirements which we understand intimately. We can help prepare reports for both regular reporting needs in accordance with the AASB Australian accounting standards, as well as ad hoc reports for your use.

Whether you’re just setting up your financial services organisation or you’re simply searching for better systems and structures, we can implement these. We’ll refine your current systems and business structures and train your staff, if necessary, to ensure the streamlined operation of your business.
