Why Us ?


When you were in Australia, your tax affairs may have been straightforward. Since you came overseas, many of the Australian tax forms and instructions (including those issued by the ATO and financial institutions) you receive probably don’t apply or are misleading.

Our team has Australian international tax experience gained from the big 4 accounting firms and we deal with Australian expatriate tax returns as our daily bread and butter. In addition, we offer tax planning assistance to expatriates looking to set up businesses offshore.

As a small, specialist firm, we can offer our expatriate tax services at a much lower cost compared to medium-large firms in Australia with the required international tax expertise.

Australian investors

If you have investments in Australia (e.g. bank accounts, shares, investment property), or intend to invest in Australia, you may have Australian tax obligations.

We can assist you in meeting all your Australian tax obligations such as tax return preparation, and can advise you on suitable structures for your investment.


We can provide special purpose reports/ review report for mainland residents required under certain Australian migration visas


Whether you are looking to expand out of Australia into Asia, or simply like dealing with an Australian firm in Hong Kong that provide closer face to face services. We could assisting in tax planning, research and providing tax advice for multinationals.

Tardy tax lodgers

Don’t fret just yet – we commonly deal with clients with many outstanding tax returns.  Often, such clients are surprised to receive a tax refund. Whatever your situation, we can give you greater clarity and advise how to best resolve things.  As an Australian Registered Tax Agent, we only volunteer information to the Australian Tax Office that you authorise us to provide.

Small businesses

We provide offsite monthly bookkeeping services via remote access. In addition, we can provide MYOB and Xero consulting to help you get the most out of this software. We use dropbox and cloud based linked accounting software to assist our clients day to day needs.

Company incorporation and secretarial services

We can provide company incorporation services in Australia, Hong Kong and the British Virgin Islands. We work closely with Hong Kong company auditors and tax advisers to manage your Hong Kong company tax affairs
