Speedy, Efficient, Friendly

My experience with Tania has been nothing short of awesome. Her expertise, her experience, her speedy work, and her cheery and pragmatic approach has been instrumental in giving us the direction we needed with our case. Tania is a superstar and we love working with her.

Forever Grateful

Tania, I just wanted to say a huge THANK YOU for all you have done.

An ATO audit that was turning very ugly, thanks to an extremely uncooperative accountant, has now had an excellent result! I knew I needed professional help and finding you through an internet search was a godsend. You were able to turn this horrible situation around and knowing I had you in my corner, helped put my mind at ease.

Now today you’ve told me it’s all over, the review is complete and we’ve had a great success – what a relief. I can now breathe and refocus on my business.

Thank you Tania – you’re a star and I wouldn’t hesitate recommending you and your firm.

So very Grateful.  Five Star Service in tax matter

After 13 years of not being aware of it, the ATO advised me of an issue… a financially crippling, life changing kind of issue.  Their timing was exceptional, with massive cutbacks at work, my employment future was uncertain, and a wife currently going through IVF the additional stress was almost unbearable.

I spent almost 6 months attempting to obtain the information I needed from the ATO with very little success.

In desperation I contacted Tania, and within a day of engaging her services she had cut to the core of the problem, obtained the information I had not been able to and explained clearly to me what the situation was.  Within a week she had investigated the options available to me, identified a recommended course of action and put me contact with the relevant people to assist.

Tania was extremely professional and empathetic, kept me updated constantly on her progress and achieved a favourable outcome.  My wife and I are so very grateful and it is an enormous relief to be able to put this behind us.

I would highly recommend Tania to anyone having tax issues of any kind.

Arran B—July 2015

When I was audited by the ATOI was given the wrong advice by my legal and accounting advisers.  I was therefore left with a very unfavourable outcome and I had to object

I engaged the team at Waterhouse Lawyers for my audit objection and they were able to successfully reverse some very poor ATO decisions. I wish I had contacted Tania and team as soon as I received the original audit notice rather than trying to deal with the matter myself.

Unfortunately due to the original advice I had, the matter then progressed to something of a very serious nature. I contacted Tania and she very quickly returned my call and was able to give me advice at a time that was terrifying for me personally.

 

Tax Audit – Objection – grateful thanks
