Accounting for the businesses of tomorrow, today.


Passion. Experience. Diligence.

We believe in small business.


Founder, Justin Araco, was brought up in a family with two small businesses in country Victoria. Whilst his parents may say he spent most of his youth playing golf, he was also very ingrained within the family businesses.

From sitting on his play rug on the floor of his Dad’s bakery, quickly devouring any dough and biscuit scraps that hit the floor, to later putting together bikes, trikes and scooters in his Mum’s toy shop, Justin grew up surrounded by small business.

Following his passion for small business, Justin has spent the last 15+ years honing his tax and business advisory skills at Monash University, Institute of Chartered Accountants and a large Melbourne accounting firm. He has worked with over 300 clients varying from tech start-ups to large multi-nationals on a range of projects including acting as outsourced CFO, complex local and cross-border structuring advices, tax coaching, strategic planning, compliance and much more.

In December of 2016, Justin started GreenSlate Accounting & Advisory in Melbourne to focus on his passion of small business and emerging industries.

Justin is very focused on bringing his experiences to innovative small businesses who are seeking to grow, but do not yet have the resources for a full- time CFO. He is not only focused on managing the tax affairs of his customers but also to at least double their profits. This can only be achieved through being a proactive, forward thinking advisor who is highly engaged with businesses from day one.

If you believe GreenSlate could be a good fit for your small business, please do not hesitate to contact us for a chat, we would love to hear from you.
