Hi! Amanda here,

A little bit about me.

After 18 years as a practice owner, I now coach, mentor and consult exclusively to small and solo accounting practice owners who want to embrace contemporary practice ways that are a win/win for all – themselves, their families, their teams and their clients.  I’ve developed quite a niche with accounting practice owners who are after more of a lifestyle practice, many of whom have children or who would like to start a family in the near future and want a practice that not only ticks the boxes professionally and financially but personally too!

I am passionate about practice owners offering a profitable and efficient Tax Planning Services to their SME clients

March. I used to love this time of the year in my practice – it was when all the fun and magic used to take place. It’s a time to wrap up the last of the tax returns and a time to look ahead and plan. I hear you say “we still have until 15 May, 5 June or 30 June, what’s the big rush”?

Well, technically you do have that long, but my approach and mindset was that clients had been afforded ample opportunity over the previous 8 months for me to do their taxes. Those clients that need to defer lodgement until 15 May, well they can simply be done and held for lodgement!

My attention from 1 March turned to helping my clients and investing time working on my practice and my team. The outcome for the clients and myself were the same – to finish the year strong, get tax saving strategies in place, get the new financial year plans in place – budgets, price rises, pay rises, revisiting business visions, resetting goals and for myself and my team, updating work papers and checklists and scheduling next year’s workflow.

I created this course to help small and solo accounting practice owners gain confidence, learn and implement and tried and and tested tax planning process that will forever be your tax planning foundation which can be built on and embellished with your flavour into the future
