Tax residency thank you

Dear Tania and team

I came to learn of my tax issues when I returned to Australia after having been working and living overseas. I had no prior communication with ATO so this matter took me by complete surprise. The internet was my first call and when I saw Waterhouse Lawyers I was immediately struck by their credibility that told me I had come to the right place.

From the very first enquiry Waterhouse Lawyer’s expertise on tax residence, experience and professionalism were simply impressive. Communication with Tania, Keerti and Amanda were focused and kind. With the ATO’s final positive decision all the charges and interests amounting to $107,000 were completely cleared. I am exceedingly grateful to Tania and her team and will gladly recommend Waterhouse Lawyers to anyone with tax issues.

Thank you so very much

In disbelief at the positive ATO experience

I slept well last night for the first time in a long time, after which this morning, feeling rested was almost like a strange experience!

Many many thanks for co-ordinating such a positive and eventful meeting with the ATO. I was still in disbelief after we left, not only at the extraordinariness of the synchronicities that became apparent, but also at how everybody worked collaboratively towards a favourable resolution.

You were right in advising me the way you did beforehand, and I am tremendously grateful for that.

I’m looking forward to resolving all this soon and getting back on track with timely lodgement of my returns as and when they are due from now on.

Thank you again Tania, for your continued good work.

Tax Debt Relief

Dear Tania

I would like to take this opportunity to thank Waterhouse Lawyers for the help you provided me to settle a tax debt this year.

You were able to relieve me of a substantial tax debt that had been incorrectly calculated on a property I previously owned.

I would also like to make special mention of Stefan Stojkovic, who dealt with the majority of my matter. He was diligent, quick and extremely helpful throughout a very stressful time in my life. Stefan was also very persistent and ensured he gathered all of the information that was needed to settle the matter as quickly and as seamlessly as possible. I truly appreciate the wonderful job he did!

Because of the efforts of Stefan and the team at Waterhouse Lawyers, I have since been able to move forward with my life.

I would happily recommend Tania and her team to anyone that is facing a tax debt.

Integrity shines

I would like to thank you once again for being so honest and fair with me and I very much appreciate your gesture to reduce your fees.

I would certainly recommend you to anyone looking for a good lawyer and one with integrity.
