Why choose us

• Our Tax Advisory division is led by Tim Olynyk who has approximately 30 years of experience in providing tax advisory services to people who have a complex tax situation
• Tim has a legal background meaning he can interpret complex transactions and complex legislation to provide practical and accurate advice to clients
• We can translate the complex into easy-to-understand, actionable steps. We can also help you with the implementation of our advice to take the pressure off you
• All members of our Tax Advisory team have a high level of technical and specialist knowledge
• We can also work with your existing accountants whether in Australia or overseas to make sure your tax returns are harmonised across the relevant jurisdictions


We pride ourselves on being very transparent and providing value for money. In almost all cases we quote the work in advance and provide a detailed breakdown so there are no hidden surprises.

Our Tax Advisory division provides advice and tax compliance services for more complex scenarios that a standard accountant may not be able to help with.

As an example, we assisted a senior executive of a listed Australian company who was posted here from overseas with advice on his tax compliance affairs in Australia. This included recognition of his employee share plan income and foreign tax credits for tax paid in his home jurisdiction.

Of course! We regularly provide a wide range of tax consulting services to professional services firms who have an individual client with a more complex situation.

Just as one example, an individual may be posted overseas for work, in which case we may be engaged to provide tax advice on the individual’s tax residency status and the implications resulting from either being a non-resident of Australia or remaining as a resident of Australia.
