Quinlan Consulting Team was started in 1997, by founding Director Tom Quinlan with a vision to offer an honest and quality service to the many small and medium sized businesses that were being neglected by the industry.




Our initial focus was providing Bookkeeping in Melbourne using MYOB and QuickBooks. In the early 2000’s the scope of our services progressed past just Bookkeeping into larger accounting software, big scale accounting software implementations, and management accounting services.

In 2005 we opened the Quinlan Consulting training division focused on teaching MYOB and accounting theory one day courses. On the back of strong demand, the training division grew exponentially and in 2007 we released the Quinlan Consulting Mentor Programme.

With the introduction of Government regulation of the Bookkeeping industry in 2009, we secured our BAS Agent registration. As a number of rogue operators were forced out, we leaped forward in size and in 2011 we expanded both divisions into Sydney, followed by Brisbane in 2012 and Perth in early 2013.

We are now a leading national provider of Accounting training and job placement which attracts high volumes of students, many of which have undergrad and post grad accounting qualifications. This privileges us first exposure to leading accounting professionals which pollinates our Management Accounting / Bookkeeping division and ensures our staff comply to checklists and standards taught in our training.

With over 25 staff, a strong brand, and a national footprint we look forward to solidifying our position as a leading trusted training provider and a professional Bookkeeping / Management Accounting firm.
