Tax & Revenue

Our clients get clear, concise and strategic tax advice but they also get an understanding of how that advice is saving them time and money. That’s the true value of specialist tax advice.

Tax can be a difficult part of running a business. The consequences of getting it wrong can be far-reaching but specialist tax advice can help point you in the right direction. Our Tax and Revenue team works solely on providing you with strategic and pragmatic tax advice – we’re true specialists in our field.

Where businesses may see a necessary evil, we see an opportunity to find the right solution to save you time and money. We often provide options that clients have never even considered and achieve results they never thought possible.

From our base in South Australia, we’ve built up a truly international tax practice advising clients on federal, state and international tax laws. Our clients include primary producers, small to medium-sized enterprises and multi-national corporations. We’re experienced in all aspects of tax including income tax, capital gains tax (CGT), GST, wine equalisation tax (WET), carbon tax, fuel tax credits (FTCs), payroll tax, stamp duty, land tax and international tax matters.

Our dedicated and client-responsive team doesn’t gloss over issues if they’re too hard or give clients a ‘one-size-fits-all’ answer. We use our deep experience and in-depth knowledge of tax law, as well as our thorough understanding of our clients’ commercial imperatives, to give each client an individual and practical solution for their situation. Whether our clients are operating locally, interstate or overseas, our specialist team interprets and applies complex, constantly changing legislation to provide the best possible advice for each situation.
