  • business and companies;
  • trusts;
  • partnerships;
  • self-managed super funds; and
  • non-profit organisations.

What does 'Alito' mean? 

Alito was created in 2007. I wanted to develop a brand identity that reflected what we wanted to be doing with our clients. We were providing a lot of business improvement & business growth services & it seemed somewhat limiting to just be 'accountants'.

The word 'Alito' was created as the short form of "shining a light on your business" - A Light On - Alito. The dot over the i in the logo represents the light we shine on your business - meaning the analysis & investigation we do as your business advisors - not just plain old accountants. I want to know your business better than you know your business. I want to be able to discuss your business with you - not just crank out your annual financials & the tax return for your business.

I talk ask clients whether they would let a dentist who has no experience drilling teeth, drill theirs. The vast majority of accountants in Australia work for someone else - they do not have their own business. They have no experience yet business owners let they accountants drill their business.

Alito - a light on your business.
