How we can help you to

Focus on what matters

We’re here to help you do more than navigate complex tax and compliance requirements; our focus is on crafting the ideas and strategies that will have the biggest impact on what matters most to you – whether that’s generating profit, creating greater wealth, saving time, or of course, being more tax effective.

How we can help you

More than just debits and credits, we take a proactive approach to helping you reach your goals. Our team’s extensive business advisory knowledge and technical compliance expertise means we are always focused on the bigger picture of your financial affairs.

We know how important business structuring is to tax planning and regulatory compliance, asset protection, wealth creation, and efficient expansion which is why all of our engagements start with a proactive tax and structuring review.

When you work with O’Connells OBM you can rest easy knowing you’re paying the right amount of tax and not a cent more. 

Here’s how we make it happen.

Here’s how we can partner with you to build your business:

  • Proactive diagnostics

Strategic tax & compliance

You can rest easy knowing that your tax and statutory obligations have been taken care of.

Our role as your tax adviser is about much more than simply churning out financials and lodging tax returns. We take a proactive approach to helping you manage your tax and financial affairs effectively, looking beyond the standard checks and balances offered by most accounting firms, digging into the detail of your situation.

We’re not interested in pub talk, we are focused on giving you the right advice so that you can be confident you’re paying the right amount of tax and not a cent more. 

Here’s how we can help you be more tax effective:

  • Forward-focused tax planning
  • Structuring and Asset protection
  • Compliance, reporting, and technical advice
  • Self managed superannuation fund administration

We are here to help you run a good business and live a good life – so it’s important to note that we don’t condone organisations involved in profit shifting, corporate inversions, Double Irish strategies, and other tax avoidance strategies. 

We changed from one of the “BIG” firms to O’Connells OBM several years ago and have been extremely satisfied with them ever since. Their financial advice has been first class and their service always excellent. I find it very easy to recommend and have done so to many people!

– Bill & Mary Proud, The Marketing Centre

Asset Protection

We’re focused on helping you protect what you’ve worked so hard to create.

All too often we’ve seen business and family asset arrangements that have outgrown existing structures, or simply haven’t had adequate forethought, potentially risking everything. From protecting equity in your home, assisting with arrangements surrounding Intellectual Property ownership, or segregating assets to secure them in the event of litigation, we can help you to ensure your business and family are protected.

Here’s how we can help you protect what you’ve created:

  • IP ownership and assignment guidance
  • Segregation of assets
  • Structuring to protect residential equity

Our core services are designed to help you to build the business, and life, you aspire to.
