Testimonials

SATISFIED CLIENTS

Exceptional Service and Tax Knowledge

I am delighted with the results Tania has achieved in dealing with the Australian Taxation Office. My matter was complex.However, Tania was quick to understand the issues and able to prepare a strategy for my approval. Once I approved the strategy Tania immediately went to work and achieved a result my previous lawyers had not thought possible.

I believe Tania is a very intelligent and honest person. She has a great sense of intuition and a very commercial approach.  She also has a sense of urgency and diplomacy found only in a rare few.

Tania takes a pragmatic approach to solutions.  She has a very approachable manner and does not become intimidated by aggressive and complex situations.

I have no hesitation in recommending Tania to anyone needing assistance with their taxation matters.

Wish we had found you earlier

Thank you so much for your help. I just wish we had found you two years ago when we first starting having problems with the Tax Office.

Thank you Waterhouse Tax Lawyers

I cannot recommend Waterhouse Lawyers highly enough. I am a tax agent and referred a client to the team at Waterhouse Lawyers who was in quite a bit of trouble after lodging numerous years of Income Tax returns very late but for good reason.

It was beyond me to try to tackle the issues we had with the ATO on our own. I was so relieved the first time I spoke with Tania, I just knew I could leave it in safe, capable hands. I was so confident after talking with her.

The staff handling everything communicated and updated us on the way and were a great support. We had an amazing outcome, but I knew they would achieve the result in the end, I just knew from the beginning.

You are all amazing there.

I hope not to use your services in future! But I am relaxed knowing there is a team out there that I can call on to assist any of my clients with the really big legal issues they have with the ATO.

Thank you all again. Thank you Tania. I hope we can keep in contact into the future.

Thank you for ATO tax help

We would like to thank Tania and her team for helping us through a very difficult challenge that we had with the ATO.   Through her knowledge and patience we had a successful outcome and are able to continue with our business.

We have learnt a very valuable lesson: don’t mess with the ATO and if you need help don’t put it off ,get in touch with Tania and she will do her utmost to help sort it out

Very kind regards

Chapeau! as they say in French thank you


Dear Tania,

From my first contact with yourself and your firm, I knew I had contacted the right people to assist me in reviewing an ATO audit decision. How did I know that? I strongly felt that I would comfortably accept whatever outcome it may be, even if it was not the best, feeling confident that you and your team of experts would provide the best possible advice and chance to resolve the matter. Furthermore I also felt that you and your team do care about their clients and was impressed by your commitment. Was I right? Yes I was, your team achieved the best outcome that could have been expected: a win!

Dear Keerti,
Your dedication to resolving my taxation matter in the best possible way (“fighting tooth and nail” as you said) was remarkable and to say the least very much appreciated. You were approachable and always available for comments or explanations. Although it can be challenging, you were soon familiar with all the details of the evidence. Above all you were able to secure a win. I would have no hesitation whatsoever to recommend you.

Chapeau! as we say in my native French as a mark of gratitude and respect.

Best regards,

Didier
