Five Highest Ranked Businesses for 2014

Australian BusinessFor a small to medium business, we do all right here at Corporate Sound, but when it comes to Australia’s largest and most successful businesses in turns of turnover, we just simply can’t compete. Lets take a look at the top 5 Australian businesses for 2014 as published by Australian Business Review.

BHP Billiton

With an annual profit of $72.1 billion, these guys are doing some serious business, and they have topped the charts for many years, and is considered Australia’s most successful mining company (in fact it is one of the world’s largest). BHP Billiton is a multinational mining and petroleum company with operations located throughout the world.

Rio Tinto

Rio Tinto bought in $59.8 billion in 2014, and is another of Australia’s largest and finest metal and mining company. Rio Tinto has been in business for over 100 years, and specialises in the extraction of minerals.


Westfarmers is a public listed company and one of Australia’s largest retailers. These are the guys who own Coles, and they employ over 220,000 people throughout the country. Their head office is based in Perth and these guys are going from strength to strength. With a $55.4 billion year, these guys proved they mean business.

National Australia Bank

To be honest, the team here at Corporate Sound were mildly surprised that the National Australia Bank was the first of Australia’s big four banks, but they topped the list, making an annual profit of $48.5 billion. According to the Australian Business Review, the National Australia Bank is actually the largest of the four banks in terms of customers and capitalisation.

Commonwealth Bank

Coming in at 5th position, is Commonwealth Bank with a $47.1 billion profit. The Commonwealth Bank has operations throughout the world, and currently employs over 44,000 people.

It goes to show how big the corporate pie is, and how big a share these guys actually have in terms of profit and capitalisation.
