About us

We are a Melbourne based accounting firm founded in 2017 by Hussein Saad. We specialise in all types of accounting, from personal to business related and beyond.

Accounting excellence

Surplus Financial Group founder Hussein ‘Huss’ Saad started his career in top tier accounting firms and has more than a decade of Australian financial experience.

But when Hussein noticed a dramatic shift in the way both young and old Australians were going about their commerce and managing their personal finances, Hussein decided to go it alone and start to do things differently!

The world has changed and so has the way Surplus Financial Group is helping people to manage their tax and finances. Hussein believes that his offering is uniquely placed to service the modern Australian business.

Hussein Saad holds a Bachelor in Accounting, a graduate diploma of Chartered Accountants Australia and New Zealand, an Australian Securities and Investment Commission Agent and Tax Agent License.

Constant availability, ongoing transparency and dedicated planning allows Surplus Financial Group to do this better than other accountants in Australia.

All our tax services are fully tax deductible.
