"We approached Hanrick Curran after reading an article that Jamie Towers had published online. At the time we were extremely stressed about Income Tax concerns regarding International Tax issues that our current accountant had not been able to resolve; Jamie was very knowledgeable and was immediately able to identify the issue and put our mind at ease. He applied to the Australian Taxation Office on our behalf for a Private Binding Ruling and was successful. Jamie confidently provided advice on the issue and helped us to legally save a lot of tax now and into the future. Thank you!"

"To get our business on a growth trajectory we needed to submit a comprehensive VET Fee Application and comply with Federal Government's changing criteria. Hanrick Curran brought a new approach and were able to cut through the complexities of the financial validation process and finalise our application.
From the moment we engaged Hanrick Curran, they took the time to understand what was important to us, were genuinely interested in our business and promptly delivered what they promised. Their expertise in dealing with the VET Fee Application and experience in other audit requirements was invaluable and I would highly recommend their services to other educational organisations."

"Hanrick Curran has been Ormiston College's Auditors for over 7 years.
Hanrick Curran approaches our Audit with a view to add value during the process. Within their Audit framework, they conduct a comprehensive internal control review which, when initially performed following their original appointment, gleaned valuable insights for the Board. By reengineering our internal reporting processes, we were able to reduce the costs associated with producing timely, accurate internal reporting and deliver it going forward in a more robust transparent framework.
We value Hanrick Curran performing regular FBT reviews which ensures we are optimising access to tax concessions available to our industry. They remain up to date with proposed and legislated changes in tax laws and proactively work with us to assess implications and actions required to fully benefit from them.
Hanrick Curran are a collaborative adviser, working proactively with our legal advisers to structure our assets and business activities across appropriate entities to optimise the tax efficiencies we can benefit from within the tax framework applicable to us."

"I am a regular donor to the Cancer Council and decided that as a result of the excellent work they do, I wanted to plan to include them as a beneficiary in my Estate. When I mentioned this to them they alerted me to the taxation complexities to be aware of that could be minimised with early planning and referred me to the Tax Partner at Hanrick Curran, Jamie Towers.
Jamie spent the time to understand the complexities of my future Estate, the objectives I wanted to achieve and considered the implementation required by my Executors. His advice was written in a clear and concise manner so as to avoid any ambiguity in the future in following the wishes outlined my Will.
I would highly recommend Jamie to other philanthropists to ensure they have their Estate and Will structured in the most tax effective manner to not only optimise the after tax proceeds for beneficiaries but to streamline the implementation of it for the Executors."

“My husband (a US citizen) and I (Australian citizen) were looking to make investments in International Shares and sought advice from Hanrick Curran’s tax expert, Jamie Towers on the tax issues of investing through various entities. Jamie explained the Australian tax issues that would apply to both of us if investing as an individual, or through a self-managed superannuation fund, company or trust in a manner that was clear and easy to understand and even provided us with an example to help illustrate gearing and imputation credits if investing in Australian shares. He also provided a recommendation to one of his Alliott Group colleagues for us to obtain equivalent advice in the USA. Following such a positive experience with Hanrick Curran I have no hesitation in recommending them to anyone requiring clear, accurate and prompt tax advice. Thank you!”
