GIC remission relief

That is such wonderful news about the remission of my GIC.

My tax predicament and trying to sort it all out has been rather worrying. I had managed to get myself in quite a state over it all.

But now light at the end of the tunnel.

I can’t thank you, Tania and your office enough for calmly and reassuringly guiding me through the process.

Thank you for taking on my case and thank you for the result – the sun is shining again.

Big thank you from a happy yachtie

Dear Tania,

Well I would just like to thank you the hard work you applied in my case of non residency for tax purposes. Your background knowledge and experience in previous cases with yacht crew is clearly evident when dealing with Waterhouse. The kind assistance throughout the ordeal was professional and courteous and was consistently kept up to date from start to finish, I will definitely recommend your firm to my fellow colleagues in the yachting industry!!!

In-depth knowledge of tax residency and other tax issues

Dear Tania,

Just want to say a big thank you, coming from a financial background myself, I was so impressed by your in-depth knowledge on tax residency and other tax issues, these are areas I often find that lots of accountants don’t even have an answer for, you are so knowledgeable, helpful, and really put my mind at ease.

I am grateful to Tania who has offered her assistance.

Tanis’s free of cost consultation has proved that ‘yes ‘there are human beings who helped others in this materialistic world.

No wonder Tania you are highly professional and very kind hearted individual. My entire family is grateful to you. My words are not scripted it’s a real time experience of ordinary individual who is not representing any corporation or business enterprise.

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.

Tax Debt Relief

Dear Tania

I would like to take this opportunity to thank Waterhouse Lawyers for the help you provided me to settle a tax debt this year.

You were able to relieve me of a substantial tax debt that had been incorrectly calculated on a property I previously owned.

I would also like to make special mention of Stefan Stojkovic, who dealt with the majority of my matter. He was diligent, quick and extremely helpful throughout a very stressful time in my life. Stefan was also very persistent and ensured he gathered all of the information that was needed to settle the matter as quickly and as seamlessly as possible. I truly appreciate the wonderful job he did!

Because of the efforts of Stefan and the team at Waterhouse Lawyers, I have since been able to move forward with my life.

I would happily recommend Tania and her team to anyone that is facing a tax debt.

Tania Waterhouse—November 2016

Responsive, knowledgeable tax advice

I searched for a long time for responsive, knowledgeable tax advice.  I finally found it with Waterhouse Lawyers.

I had very technical matters to address, and Tania Waterhouse invested many more hours than I paid for, and successfully resolved the issues.  I am very happy with the outcome.

Equally valuable was the personal touch Tania brought to our interactions.  I will use Waterhouse Lawyers’ services for all my future needs.

I unreservedly recommend them for any taxation matters.

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.

Tania Waterhouse—November 2015

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.

Lucky to have by my side

I would like to extend my thanks and appreciation for your kindness, sympathy, cooperation and professionalism, I am so lucky to have you by my side.

Tania Waterhouse—October 2015

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.

In disbelief at the positive ATO experience

I slept well last night for the first time in a long time, after which this morning, feeling rested was almost like a strange experience!

Many many thanks for co-ordinating such a positive and eventful meeting with the ATO. I was still in disbelief after we left, not only at the extraordinariness of the synchronicities that became apparent, but also at how everybody worked collaboratively towards a favourable resolution.

You were right in advising me the way you did beforehand, and I am tremendously grateful for that.

I’m looking forward to resolving all this soon and getting back on track with timely lodgement of my returns as and when they are due from now on.

Thank you again Tania, for your continued good work.

What a relief

Tania, I am so very grateful for all your help over the past few months. Things turned out as I had hoped, but much better than expected. My sister will also be happy because she was concerned for me.

Thank you, thank you and thanks again. I just let out a huge exhale for I was almost holding my breath.

Of course I will be pleased to recommend you to others.

Tania Waterhouse—April 2015

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

Tania Waterhouse—April 2015

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.

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.

Tania Waterhouse—February 2015

A million thanks for a great result

Well thank you God & thank you Tania! I’m so grateful to you for your advice and for the time and care taken in the delivery so I could trust you and follow that advice. A very happy Christmas to you and many blessings as you have given me the best gift I could hope for.

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.

Fantastic help

OMG – it’s the truth – you told the truth – that’s a strategy?! I LOVE it – I’m so happy – however the [government agency] responds will be OK by me. It’s perfect, you have made sense of a time in my life and behaviour and responses I didn’t understand.

The reasoning and explanation in your letter is more valuable to me personally than the [agency’s] outcome. A win would be great, but no matter what happens, I can definitely take heed of this, develop better insight, work on improving my response to confronting and conflicting events and have a happier life, which is and must be the ultimate goal.

Seriously grateful and overwhelmingly impressed by your ability to nail the issues in such a way that I will have peace of mind no matter what the outcome.
