Member of Count

RBA Financial Services Pty Ltd is a new service providing financial planning services to individuals and businesses.

From 1 July 2016, an unlicensed accountant cannot provide financial product advice and this now includes providing advice in relation to the establishment and closure of an SMSF. Dan and Glen have made the worthwhile investment of becoming licensed and are now Authorised Representatives of Count and directors of RBA Financial Services Pty Ltd.

Count’s success has been built on their ability to identify opportunities ahead of the curve. This started with Barry Lambert who founded Count Financial Limited back in 1980. Identifying that accountants were uniquely positioned to understand and assist their clients with a broader range of financial services, Barry saw a gap in the market. He founded Count and began assisting accountants in expanding their services to offer professional financial advice to their tax and accounting clients. Count listed on the Australian Stock Exchange and was bought by the Commonwealth Bank of Australia in 2011. While the Count network has grown over the years to also include specialist non-accountant advisers, our focus continues to be on supporting accounting firms to assist their clients and grow their business through the provision of financial advice.
