About

Our Story

In October 1987, David Livingstone ventured into small business and established an accounting practice from his home in Somerville.

During the 10 years following, David’s client base grew to a point where he was preparing over 1000 tax returns annually. In October 1999, David joined forces with Peter Beckett and together they formed Livingstone Beckett & Associates Pty Ltd.

At this point, the business had well and truly outgrown David’s house, and Livingstone Beckett & Associates relocated to Shop 4/1085 Frankston-Flinders Road, Somerville.

By the end of 2009, Livingstone Beckett & Associates were lodging well over 2000 tax returns annually, and had grown to employ 9 staff.

Once the Frankston-Flinders Road office was at bursting point, Livingstone Beckett & Associates relocated again; this time to Shop 3/4 Eramosa Road East, Somerville.

It is here that we have been ever since.

In April 2018, LBA has transformed again, as David & Peter welcomed Luke Wade on board as a third partner. This change has seen Livingstone Beckett & Associates Pty Ltd change its name to LBW Advisory Pty Ltd.

LBW currently services well over 2500 clients from all walks of life, all over Australia. Over the years, our firm has been blessed to employ loyal, professional staff that have helped shape our business and the quality service we provide to our clients. Every day we are reminded of the key role our people and clients play in the continual growth of our firm. For that, we are constantly grateful…

We are truly excited for what the future holds, not only for LBW Advisory, but for our clients and community as a whole.
