Welcome to Fiscal Artisans!
Fiscal Artisans is a boutique accounting and advisory business. Not so much a public accounting practice, more a 'private practice' serving the needs of a select group of clients and friends.
We look to provide a service that uses the 'tools of the trade' not for mass production, instead we aim to provide a tailored 'hand made' service that accommodates each clients specific financial and accounting needs.
The focus is you. You, your needs and ideas, and your desires and goals.
Accounting is not about the numbers.
Many people think that that Accounting is all just about the numbers, and that the numbers record your success.
That isnt success.
Success is what those numbers allow a business owner to do, to have, to plan, to grow, to be.
Our role is to work with our clients to help them achieve that - to go beyond the numbers and achieve their success.
From a technical and work point of view, we can go from simply preparing and processing your income tax returns, all the way to assisting you in managing your business and investment activities, acting as a 'virtual CFO' to your business, or as your trusted advisor in the tax, accounting, investment and financial realm.
We can help you develop the team that you need, to coach you, guide you and work to make your success a reality.
Our vision is to provide our clients with the opportunity to achieve their goals, both financial and otherwise.
Having sufficient money to be able to choose what you do in your life is, quite simply, the ultimate ‘goal’ for most people. Pretty much everything else revolves around this basic premise.
We aim to provide a total financial service, helping you to get beyond living on your wage on a day to day basis, or having a business that is ‘just surviving’ each year.
We start with getting a total picture of your financial position, and a list of your financial goals and / or your business needs, and set out a plan to work with you to achieve these aims.
In order to do this, you need assistance in the following areas:
Taxation advice and assistance; (including tax variations and audit protection)
Financial Planning and portfolio management;
Assistance with loan finance arrangements to purchase your next investment property, your ‘dream home’ or to help improve the return from your investments;
Optimising your salary package arrangements;
Setting up the most appropriate structures for your investments, to get the best taxation, asset protection and ongoing management control over your assets;
Assistance in setting up and managing your business or investment portfolio, including Superannuation, GST, capital gains and other day to day matters.
We can assist you in ALL of these areas, not just in one or two of them.
And the people who assist you are qualified to provide the advice that is given to you, with the proper registrations and authorisations to provide the assistance that you require.
As part of this, we work with you to get the best possible result for you from your tax returns and your business and investment activities.
Since 1991, I've been helping business and individuals with their financial, taxation and accounting requirements.
I have assisted many hundreds of businesses and thousands of individuals, established businesses for clients in numerous countries as they strive to grow their activities. With over 30 years of personal experience as a public accountant, a CFO for a multi national entity, and an affinity to businesses in the arts and creative industries, I believe we provide a strong, creative and forward looking service to assist you with your needs.
Outside of the business, I enjoy many facets of the arts especially photography and the visual arts, playing acoustic guitar, and watching a range of sports - with a passion for the Western Bulldogs and Wolverhampton Wanderers! And spending time with my wonderful family.
Send me a message, and tell me more about your financial goals and needs. I will get back to you soon to schedule a consultation.
