“I like to sit with my clients face to face to discuss and really understand their circumstances“
Director, Tax Services
After living out his childhood dream, spending 9 years as an RAAF navigator, Shane made the daring decision to return to university as a mature age student, aged 28.
Seeing the world from above has brought Shane a lifetime of experience; he believes this has shaped his character. He’s gained the courage to say “no” and to make confident, bold decisions when appropriate.
Shane specialises in minimising corporate tax exposures, developing and implementing corporate tax policies, tax compliance with appropriate risk management while maximising stakeholder benefits, tax effective business structuring and solutions, tax dispute resolution (ATO, SRO & AAT), tax due diligence (M&A) and being an expert witness for court cases.
Shane’s tax consulting experience covers a range of clients including complex family groups, owner/managers and small, medium and large listed companies across a variety of industry sectors.
Shane’s involvement in the William Buck VIC mentoring program provides him with a sense of achievement as he believes having a mentor throughout your professional career is critical. He is honoured to play such a significant part in assisting the growth of those around him.
