We're a Certified Practicing Accountancy (CPA) practice with one major speciality: we look after property investors.

Of course, we handle all the usual kind of accounting work you’d expect of a long established CPA firm too.

But the majority of our clients come to us because of our expertise in managing property wealth and minimising property related tax.

Wilson has notched up more than 20 years in public practice since his professional start with one of Australia’s leading accountancy firms.

During his early years he noticed many clients coming to him with property investment portfolios all had the same problem.

Their holdings had not been well structured for tax purposes. As such, they could not take advantage of tax reduction opportunities that would otherwise have been open to them.

Mistakes made at the time of purchasing meant much higher tax burdens for many of these investors, and greatly reduced profits.

In some cases, investors were handing back 40 - 45% of their gains to the ATO. This was deeply frustrating for Wilson and his clients. Better planning and structuring at the outset would have meant paying far less tax, and sometimes none at all.

Clearly there was a real need amongst property investors for professional planning and advice on structuring their holdings.

Since then, up-front planning and advice on structuring property investments has become a mainstay of Wilson’s work.

He is co-author of: Things Your Accountant Never Told You About Investing in Property.

Senior Tax Manager: Vivian Lieu MAcc.

Vivian Lieu, Accountant, Senior Tax Manager

Vivian Lieu's Certifications

  • Master of Accounting (Swinburn University)

Vivian is a seasoned Tax Accountant, with over 25 years’ experience.

But that label alone doesn’t begin to do justice to what she actually does for our clients.

Where she really excels is in the role of guardian angel for individuals or businesses in stressful or challenging financial situations.

For example, if you’re ever unlucky enough to be audited by the ATO, Fair Work, Worksafe or ASIC - or worse, a combination of them, you’ll count yourself lucky to have Vivian to keep you safe and calm.

One of the things she loves most about being a tax accountant is being able to take the stress out of stressful situations.

And if you’re new to Australia, in need of professional advice on the way our Financial System works, she makes a brilliant and enthusiastic financial guide. She’ll clue you up to every little pitfall and trick that’s worth knowing.

Another thing you might really appreciate about Vivian is her grounded, down to earth perspective. She hasn’t always been a tax accountant. She’s come up through the ranks as it were, from quite humble beginnings. Before qualifying as an accountant, she’s been a waitress, shop assistant, administrator and book keeper. Some people find it much easier to be open about their finances when dealing with someone whose literally seen it all.
