We are a busy family practise with Fred Eakins (CPA), Sarah Aston (CPA) and Chris Eakins, the office manager (& Fred’s better half!) managing an ever-growing team of dedicated accountants, bookkeepers and administration staff.  Fred & Chris have been operating in the Mooroolbark and Lilydale area since 1975, when Fred started as a sole trader practice in the office up-stairs in the Methven building.  In 1995, Sarah joined the practice on a part-time basis and in 2006 came on board as a permanent full-time employee. We have since moved to Lilydale, back to Mooroolbark and have been in our current premises at 2-4 Brice Avenue Mooroolbark since 2007. In July 2014 we re-branded our practice from Frederick J Eakins & Associates to Embark Tax Services.

We provide a flexible, family oriented workplace for our staff members to allow them to all maintain a successful work/life balance.  This also means that you may not always be able to get in touch with who you want straight away.  However, we will always return phone calls and emails as soon as we can.  You can also speak with Fred, Sarah, Chau or Renee on any tax matter, and Chris, Anna, Rachel, Kathy or Julie on any admin matter, so feel comfortable to ask for anyone who is available!

Our mission is provide every client with exceptional, professional and personalised service that exceeds expectation.
