Waterhouse Lawyers are experts at dealing with tax debt, particularly when the ATO has garnisheed a taxpayer’s bank accounts or is threatening bankruptcy.

We are generally able to arrange payment plans in even the most dire financial circumstances. In many instances we have successfully applied for reduction of the General Interest Charge.

The ATO is dramatically increasing its use of tax garnishee notices. Under a garnishee notice, the ATO can recover monies from third parties such as banks and employers.

Where the ATO has issued a garnishee notice, we can assist by ensuring the notice has been validly issued and, if so, negotiating the best possible outcome with the ATO for your tax debt.

Satisfied Clients

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

Very fortunate to find her

Tania, thank you sincerely for the result you have achieved with the ATO who carried out an audit on my 2002 return (in 2014!). This was an incredibly stressful time with no records, living in another country and an accountant who was very unhelpful.

You have achieved an amazing result, one which I could not have achieved without your professional help. My final ATO account was a mere 1.3% of the original ATO invoice. Now I can resume a normal life.

Sincerely,

Jasmine

Saving my life and company

Hello Tania,

I hope this note finds you well.

You may or may not recall our case.

I will keep this short, as I can imagine you are very busy, but wanted to update you of the outcome. After you went into bat for me against the ATO in 2018, due to them issuing a garnishee over the company leaving me nowhere to go.
With your persistence we reached an agreement…saving my life and my company!

In our last conversation you asked me to let you know how we ended up and told me “show them that we would make it”!

Today I am emailing you with an enormous smile on my face…our ATO Super Guarantee Account debt was finalised in August, 2020 and today we received the attached statement from the ATO…as of 8th December, 2020 this is also finalised.
It has not been an easy journey, especially with the additional challenges of COVID…but we survived!

Thankyou Tania from the bottom of my heart, as without you I would not be sitting here typing this email.
May I wish you, your family and colleagues a very Merry Christmas and a safe New Year.

Warm Regards,

Trisha F

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.

ATO Tax Debt

Just when I thought there was no way to clear my ATO debt, Tania was there to negotiate on my behalf in a professional upfront honest caring manner. You are an Angel. Because of Tania, we are able to keep our family home, and have a life again free of the stress we had been suffering trying to clear a large debt.

Thank you sincerely Tania!

I would highly recommend Tania Waterhouse to anyone that has any form of debt to the ATO. Tania knows how to address an issue, and keeps you informed along the way. We can’t thank you enough on the professional guidance you provided based on your knowledge on taxation law, and what we can and can’t do. Once again, thank you!
