I am passionate about business growth, and about working with family businesses and individuals with the fundamentals of good financial management: accounting, taxation and compliance.

As a compliance specialist I translate complex financial matters into easily understood terms and thrive on the intricacies of taxation. I enjoy helping businesses and individuals maximise their positions and tax opportunities. From salary packaging to wealth creating strategies including superannuation and estate planning, I've built long term relationships with clients who know my advice is always based on two fundamental objectives - financial growth and future security.

I work across all aspects of tax compliance (income tax, GST, FBT) including tax planning, consolidation and international tax matters and pride myself on providing responsive and customised service.
My clients include family groups, medical practitioners and professionals, manufacturing, service and investment companies with operations both in Australia and overseas as well as non-resident companies doing business in Australia.
