Bstar has been providing leading business advisory solutions since 1999.

The viba advisory process developed by Bstar provides its Alliance Partners, including Accountants, Business and Financial Advisers, the methodology and systems to build business advisory solutions for SME’s.

Following the release of its Business Valuation Tool in 2005, which includes a patented algorithm to calculate a business capitalisation rate, Bstar launched the Alliance Partner Program in 2008 that enabled advisory firms to use the tools, materials and Programs, to expand their advisory services to SMEs.

The Business Life Planning Program, our flagship business planning tool was released in 2009.

In 2010 Bstar’s launched the Knowledge Bank enabling the production of benchmarking reports on both a valuation assessment and financial performance basis.

The viba White Paper was also released in 2010 detailing 7 manageable steps for our Alliance Partners to become their clients’ most trusted Business Adviser. The viba process provides a pathway from client engagement through to implementation and ongoing support for SMEs.

In 2012 the Risk and Value Driver Assessment went online furthering the process of automating Business Valuation Assessments and the data integration tool with XERO was completed and made available to Alliance Partners.

2014 saw the release of the inaugural Accountants Research Report and the SME Engagement Guide. The ARR provided in-depth insights into the current state of the accounting industry, including highlight challenges, opportunities and emerging trends.

The SME Engagement Guide explains from start to finish the viba engagement process and how Alliance Partners can establish themselves as their clients’ most trusted advisor.


  • Bstar provides a defined framework that we can scale

    "We were offering Business Advisory services to our clients, but we didn’t have a structured and repeatable way to deliver on a consistent basis. Bstar provides a defined framework that we can scale, ensuring we deliver what we say will to our clients each and every time. Without Bstar, we wouldn’t be able to offer the suite of Business Advisory Services we do today, meaning we’d miss out on a huge opportunity to grow both our business, and our client’s businesses."

    Drue Schofield, 4Front Accountants


  • The Bstar process and tools align perfectly with our delivery model

    "We appreciate the value in systemising an offering and Bstar was fundamental in allowing our practice to do that. The Bstar process and tools align perfectly with our delivery model and provide structure to what has always been an adhoc and somewhat intuitive process."

    Jared Favero, Godbee Favero

The first SME Research Report was also a significant event of 2015. This report was prepared so that Alliance Partners could create a white label version and use it for marketing and promotional purposes.

In conjunction with Bank of Queensland Specialist the Dental Research Report was released in 2016.

The Better Business Program and the Business Risk Survey were two significant applications launched in the second half of 2017. The BBP uses the data gathered from the RAVDA to automatically build a SWOT analysis and then use information that as a basis to complete a Business Improvement Plan.

Bstar continues to support their Alliance Partners with release of the 2017/18 Accountants Research Report and the 2017/18 SME Research Report.
