Some of our Senior Lawyers have been advising on structuring to maximise returns and lower risk since 1988. We have seen it all- including Anstalts or Stiftungs!
Some of our senior lawyers have not wavered from this expertise â€“ this is not what they aspire to be â€“ this is who they are.
It can be as simple as â€“ shall I use a company or trust to buy this asset â€“ how do I lower my taxation in my group?
We have always found it amusing that people go to accountants for taxation advice? What is the alternative?
Some of our senior lawyers have written the textbooks on domestic and international taxation law. The stuff that the accountants read and implement. Good taxation lawyers charge easily in excess of $1200 per hour and are simply not available for anyone but the very wealthy or larger corporate's.
It's Game over now! You can contact our senior lawyers for a confidential no obligation discussion.
The Australian taxation laws are the most complex laws in Australia and comprise such volumes and masses of regulations and rulings that they rank up there with some the most complex in the world!
An accountant cannot interpret but he can implement. We will work with your accountants and financial planners! We have been advising accountants and financial planners for over 30 years on strategies and solutions!
However, this using the right structures for your affairs is absolutely critical. It is not just about lowering your overall tax liabilities, but one has to think about divorce, asset protection, creditors and regulatory political risk to name a few areas of concern.
We won't charge you for an initial discussion. We have been blessed to be very good at this and we love to talk about how we may help you.
