Accounting with a zesty twist

Gold Coast Accountants & Business Advisors, who go beyond tax compliance to give businesses of all sizes the tools, advice and guidance they need to grow. 

Who we are


Lemonade Beach is a boutique Accounting and Business Advisory firm based in the heart of Coolangatta on the Gold Coast. We are Chartered Accountants with extensive experience in all areas of compliance and Australian Taxation Law, and provide accounting services to individuals and businesses across South East Queensland and Northern NSW. However, we’re not your average accountant, which is why we call ourselves “Accountants with a Zesty Twist”. We go beyond tax accounting to offer products that empower business owners to confidently engage with their financial data, build strategy into business processes and make sound, informed decisions. We term this ‘Business Sense’ and our goal is to make ‘Business Sense Simple’. 

Accounting & Advice for Business Owners

The Accounting, Tax and Business Advisory services we offer have been designed with our clients in mind. When you work with Lemonade Beach, you get much more than an accountant. We get to know you, your business, your pain points, where you’re at, where you want to go, and of course… your numbers. This deep understanding of your business alongside our accounting expertise uniquely positions us to offer strategic advice to not only help minimise tax and ensure compliance, but to help grow your business. Underpinning everything we do at Lemonade Beach is our desire to empower clients to make more informed business decisions, quicker. We want you to feel in control, which is why our services are unbundled and flexible, to suit the changing needs of your business as it grows.

We work with a range of businesses – from start ups, to the more established, from small businesses to larger businesses. No matter where our clients are at in their business journey, what motivates them to choose Lemonade Beach remains the same.

We can help you:

Save time on accounts so you can spend more time on your business

Feel confident in your financial data

Achieve a greater work/life balance

Stop feeling overwhelmed by data

With business planning and advice, so you know your next move (and why)

Paddle Out.

Assess the surf (marketplace) and negotiate the white-water (start-up hurdles) as you get ready to ride the business wave.

Surf’s up!

You’re using all your skills to catch and ride waves, whilst the ride is exhilarating it’s also lots of work and you’re seeking the zen of the greenroom.

One last wave?

You’ve had an awesome day riding waves and you’re debating whether to ‘get one last one’ or call it a day.
