Very flexible with her time and has a high level of knowledge. Marina amended my previous tax returns which enabled me to see that I could claim much more than I realised.

What do you like most about your job?
The most enjoyable aspect of our work is happy clients. That is absolutely the most satisfying aspect of our job. When those happy clients then go on to refer other clients to us, now that is the ultimate validation.
Do you have a favourite customer story you would like to share?
Two stories: Client A had been doing her own personal tax return for years to save accounting fees. While chatting it became clear that she had been paying too much tax. We corrected previous returns & she received a nice refund! 2- Client B is saving $20,000/year by changing business structure
How did you decide to get into your line of work?
Reducing people's tax bill. This was the ONLY reason Marina became an accountant. While accounting is an enjoyable career, using our knowledge of tax law to help our clients in a significant way is the most rewarding work.
What questions should a customer ask to hire the right service professional?
Ask your prospective accountant where they are located, what they specialise in and what is the size of the firm. Generally speaking, the size of the accounting firm should not be much bigger than the size of YOUR business or be out of proportion to your needs.
