The nature of taxation consulting has changed drastically over the past decade. In the past, staying abreast of technical and legislative changes was adequate for achieving favourable outcomes for clients.

We present the best range of practical options, highlighting the issues and preferred recommendations.
- Preparation and advice on income tax, fringe benefits tax, capital gains tax, stamp duty, payroll tax, GST, and land tax.
- Assistance with taxation law compliance and administration.
- Tax effective structuring for small to medium sized businesses.
- Superannuation advice and structures.

Our work provides a vital link between shareholders, management, and other users of financial statements. A thorough understanding of the environment in which our clients operate, the control procedures they adopt, and the systems implemented, enable us to identify actual and potential problem areas. Our success comes from being proactive in protecting the interests of the shareholders or members.
As auditors, we recognise the importance of maintaining our independence and objectivity at all times. Our Partners and staff are well trained and experienced in identifying and overcoming issues that may arise during the conduct of an audit.
We provide services to all types of businesses including public companies, large private organisations, educational institutions, subsidiaries of multinational companies, and non-profit organisations.

We also recognise that the life-blood of the business community in Australia is small business, and small business is a significant part of our firm. The relationship we have with our business clients is, and must be, very strong. They rely on the accuracy and timeliness of our advice, to navigate them through the myriad of complex and ever-changing legislation.
To ensure their compliance, our clients need to know what to do, when to do it and the impact these changes may have on their business. Knowing our clients' businesses, growing with them, and providing them with the services they need - when they need them - this is the essence of ‘beyond accounting', and reflects our own professional and family values.
As the Federal Government continues to introduce measures aimed at encouraging Australians to take responsibility, and act decisively, to achieve their own retirement fund outcomes, Australians today are obliged to deal with complex retirement issues. Many of our clients are now very much retirement-focused.

Australia has always been a popular destination for foreign investors. Our politically stable environment and favourable economic conditions continue to encourage international property investors, and entrepreneurs, wanting to establish or expand their business in new markets. Foreign investment is equally well regarded by the Australian government and business communities alike, and as such, offers the astute investor a wealth of opportunity. Mitchell & Partners offer a unique advisory service geared towards assisting foreign investors to make the right investment decisions. By having worked closely with a range of clients in the past, we are able to offer valuable insights into what works and what doesn't.
We advise clients to contemplate their investment strategy with careful consideration of factors such as location, product quality, return on investment, and prospective long term opportunities. We help facilitate this process by ensuring that proper and due consideration is also given to the setting up of appropriate tax and legal structures. After all, commercial returns and capital gains should not be impaired by the lack of poor long term planning from the beginning.
In order to go beyond accounting we also provide the following services:
- Registered office facilities
- Lodgement of company transactions with ASIC such as share transfers, share splits, director appointments and resignations etc.
- Training, Setup and/or Bookkeeping services of accounting packages Xero, MYOB and Quicken.
- Setup and compliance of Private Ancillary Funds, whereby clients can create their own charitable foundation with a high level of control
