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.

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.

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.

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.

Mission Impossible Achieved

Tania, You were referred to me after a relentless three year audit of my taxation affairs by the ATO. As well as threatening my  means of livelihood, the audit caused enormous personal stress. But you achieved the impossible and liaised with the ATO to obtain an unbelievable result. I am so grateful to you.

As a result of your fantastic efforts I am now free to get on with my life. Thank you so much.
