Blaze Acumen Chartered Accountants
Prior to establishing the Blaze Acumen team in 2004 as one of the founding members of the business, Brett was an integral member of the Personal Financial Services area of one of the Big 4 firms, specialising in providing innovative solutions for high net wealth clients.
Brett has over 28 years’ experience in the chartered accounting industry and has gained a reputation for adding significant value to clients through the application of proactive strategies and ideas.
Consistent with the Blaze Acumen philosophy, Brett has also helped clients with risk management by actively seeking private binding rulings with the Australian Taxation Office. While it is important to provide clients with advice that we stand by, clients also appreciate the “sleep at night factor” and knowing that large dollar transactions or restructures will not be later challenged by the ATO taking an alternate view.
Areas of specialty include:
- Personal and corporate tax;
- Family Trusts;
- Capital Gains Tax including Small Business CGT concessions;
- Structuring advice;
- Asset protection;
- ATO Private Binding Ruling applications;
- Taxation planning;
- Tax disputes and resolution;
- Taxation of financial derivatives; and
- Estate Planning.
Brett is also a member of Chartered Accountants Australia and New Zealand, holds a certificate of Public Practice and also sits on the Board of a number of charitable Private Ancillary Funds.
