Thomas Blackwell

Subject Matter in Taxation

Thomas is our team member for all tax planning and bookkeeping needs.

He helps improve our retirement clients' tax position as well as optimizing financial operations in clients' small businesses.  

Thomas is different from most other accountants Mick has met.  Just like Mick, he believes in the big picture, the long-term plan of the client's financial household while tax compliance is the outcome of this. 

Taxation advising is a specialised field, often involving a high degree of complexity in applying legislation and case law to an individual client’s circumstances.

Through development with Mick, Thomas helps our clients  map their taxation journey

using our unique LEARP approach:

1. Locate:

Locate all of the historical and current taxation-related information.


2. Evaluate:

Evaluate the options for changing strategy and the client’s ability to understand and navigate the planned changes.
 

3. Assess:

Assess the differing options, quantify the taxation and cash flow outcomes, and make recommendations.

 

4. Report:

Report the potential strategies to all the other subject matter experts to ensure they fit in the bigger picture of the client's comprehensive overarching strategy. 
 

5. Process:

Process or proceed: to implement and monitor the strategy.

Of course, Thomas and his team also take care of tax compliance for our clients including Tax Returns, Company Accounts, and BAS.
