Wealthy Individuals

Wealthy individuals are at high risk of being audited by the Australian Taxation Office. The ATO may consider you to be a wealthy individual or group if:
  • You and your associated entities control net wealth of over $5 million; or
  • Your private company and its associated subsidiaries have an annual turnover of more than $2 million.
If you fall in that category, you have a much higher chance of being audited by the ATO. Therefore, it is essential that you seek advice from an experienced tax lawyer to adequately prepare for the likely ATO audit.

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.

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

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!
