My business

My business provides tax training services and other tax resources to accountants in public practice. My business is specifically aimed at helping SME tax advisers understand the Australian tax and superannuation system.  I also provide resources to help accountants and tax agents serve their clients well.

This website is the core of my business.  It provides a rich variety of tax training and other tax resources that cannot be found elsewhere.

I do not undertake any type of compliance work. That is, I won’t be appointed as the tax agent of any person and I don’t lodge income tax returns, business activity statements or any other type of compliance. I do not provide tax advice any longer.
