Testimonials

SATISFIED CLIENTS

Some sanity returns to my life

For many years I have lived overseas and paid tax in my country of family residence and employment. You can imagine my surprise when I received a letter from ATO suggesting I might owe a return for the past 2 years including a list of overseas income. Alarm bells rang as I did indeed owe some returns, but fixing the issue opened a whole Pandora’s Box of issues that I knew could only be solved by a professional expert in Taxation Law.

I trolled the Internet for hours looking for a Tax Lawyer in my home city, most of whom were from very big firms. When I came upon Waterhouse Lawyers I immediately felt that I had found the right people even though we were miles apart. I engaged Tania and her team without a moment’s hesitation and was on board as a client minutes after discussion with one of her team.

Tania and her team have exceeded my expectations in all respects. At last I can sleep at night and find speaking to them a bright spot in my day. They quickly put me at ease by breaking down my issues into separate parts and providing solutions for each. Their honesty and really profession approach to client interactions is enhanced with their ability to make you feel that they are part of your family and really do care about outcomes that are in your best interest rather than feeding the corporate revenue stream.

I unreservedly commend Tania and her team to anyone with a Tax related issue.

Can’t express how grateful I am

Thank you again so much Tania.

I can’t express how grateful I am.

You’ve turned everything around for my daughters and I, after a very difficult couple of years

Thank you

My kids, my wife and I, cannot thank you enough.

When we thought we had lost everything you gave us hope.

You are a kind, humble and competent lawyer.

You have such amazing caring quality, so honest and such a fighter.

We will never be able to repay you.

Court hearing for failure to lodge tax returns less daunting

HI Tania,

Whilst daunting, your assistance and representation at the hearing for my failure to lodge tax returns made it possible, and easier than anticipated.

 

I didn’t realize how much it was weighing on me until I decided to take my first afternoon off in over 20 years (apart from illness) and have just woken up…

Looking around the courtroom I feel for some of those people in a similar position who had no representation

Professional team with solid tax law experience

Hi Tania

Many thanks to you and your team for resolving the issue we had with the tax office. It was a long standing issue that had escalated. The matter was resolved quickly and efficiently by Waterhouse Lawyers.

We can’t recommend Waterhouse Tax Lawyers highly enough. They are a professional team with solid experience in tax law. We were in constant communication and supported through the whole process. What was a stressful situation was calmed by good communication with all parties and clear actions.

Thank you again,

Andrew
