Owner, Guyrobb Electrics
Director and owner Jon Robbins first engaged SMART Business Solutions as their accountant in 2014. Jon was looking for a proactive accountant and business advisor who would listen to him, take the time to understand his business, and work together collaboratively.
Guyrobb Electrics, then known as W & AJ Robbins was established in 1966 by Bill Robbins. For many years Bill did a range of electrical installation work including Ministry of Housing, light industrial and commercial. Jon eventually came on board as his dad's apprentice in the early 1980s where they operated for a while picking up contracts with various new home buidlers. The business grew gently over time and became well known for providing quality and trustworthy electrical services with excellent customer service. In 1995 Jon became partner alongside Bill.
Since the late 1990's Guyrobb has seen steady growth and now employs a team of over over 40 people including qualified electricians, ACRS registered cablers with endorsements for data and fibre, Clean Energy Council accredited grid connect PV installers and designers, excavator operators, apprentices and office staff.
Guyrobb are a leader in semi-commercial and domestic electrical communications working providing wiring solutions to several volume new
home builders in the Melbourne area.

Stimulating investment is high on the Government’s agenda. To encourage spending, the 2020-21 Budget introduced a measure that allows businesses to immediately deduct the cost of new depreciable assets and the cost of improvements to existing assets in the first year of use.
