Established in 1973
ESV was born.
Increased our breadth of services.
Nearly 100 staff.
October - launch of a new brand.
In 1973, our founding partners, Graham Einfeld and Robert Symonds, set up their first Sydney-based accounting firm. ESV was born when they merged with Bouris Dowd Vince in 1990.
Since then, ESV has continued to grow in terms of people, specialities and experience. But even as we’ve expanded, we’ve retained our small-firm, hands-on approach, taking the time to get to know our clients’ businesses just as well as they do.
We are a firm that proudly offers a diverse range of services to our clients in Advisory, Taxation, Superannuation and Audit, and a host of value-added services that have evolved including forensic accounting to support our clients as they grow. We have an experienced Senior Leadership Team and nearly 100 dedicated staff members in Sydney, who work with multiple clients across Australia and the world. We are a leading business advisory and accounting firm, who pride themselves on knowing your name when you call or visit.
We always wanted to be a firm that was more than just numbers. We wanted to continue to inform, connect with and inspire our clients and our teams. Our vision for 2020 and beyond is to continue to be the trusted advisor to our clients – your partner for growth.
At ESV, our culture is driven by key principles that guide the way we work for our clients.

We embrace the new, so you can be assured we use the latest technology and best practices.
We also believe that behind all the numbers are people.
We care about what matters to you and we work hard, so you’ll have the freedom to enjoy your passions.
