Australian accounting blogs come in a range of shapes and sizes and cover a huge variety of different topics. From small business advice to detailed updates on legislation changes, there’s something for everyone. Here we round up some of our favourite Aussie accountancy bloggers, who are keeping Australia up to date on all kinds of financial matters.
Based in Brisbane, Consolid8 prides itself on being a collective of accountants with personality. Their abundance of personality and client-focused approach is reflected in their blog and the type of topics covered. From detailed guides on Fringe Benefits Tax (FBT) to tips on how business owners can get the most out of their accountants.
We’d recommend you check out this blog post first: Start the New Financial Year by building a Business Budget
The clue is in the name with the Etax Accountants’ blog – Tax Tips. A one-stop-shop for all things tax related, their blog is packed with helpful information for business owners. Etax is an Australian online tax return agent, so it’s safe to say they know pretty much everything there is to know about the subject.

Another good mate of Float, the Illumin8 blog is where accountancy meets the millennial generation.

On a similar thread, if somewhat more psychedelic, the BlueRock blog is both a feast for the eyes and the brain. Our friends at BlueRock post frequent articles to keep readers bang up to date with the latest changes to legislation and there’s plenty of useful content for business owners too.
Never one to shy away from a quirky title, we particularly like this one – Returning To Work With The Known Knowns, Known Unknowns And Unknown Unknowns Of COVID (we couldn’t have put it better ourselves!)
