Our practice areas
Tax Consulting

Pitcher Partners Tax Consulting team manage a range of taxation issues. As legislative experts with longstanding institutional relationships with the ATO, we advocate for effective tax legislation that benefits middle market businesses and organisations. 

Pitcher Partners tax consultants advise on income taxes, capital gains taxes, international taxes, transaction taxes and employment taxes, all in the context of structuring transactions and organisations to legitimately minimise their tax liability.

Business Advisory and Assurance

Pitchers Partners enables middle market businesses to navigate the complexities of their industries and the wider market by identifying opportunities and risks and recommending solutions. By applying a risk-based audit and review methodology, a thorough understanding of the challenges facing a business is achieved, pinpointing areas where they need expert support, advice and action. 

Assurance engagements can include assisting with the preparation of monthly management accounts, year end reporting, income tax returns and activity statements. We also provide general advice to enable boards of directors, audit committees and business owners to make informed business decisions and bring clarity to day-to-day operations.

Private Business and Family Advisory

Private Business and Family Advisory team members work predominantly with privately run businesses, including family businesses, entrepreneurs and high net worth individuals. Large and small businesses have the comfort of retaining control and decision-making power, knowing that all day-to-day administration and monitoring is being undertaken by a professional and experienced team.

Team members specialise in monthly and quarterly reporting assistance, annual compliance, preparation of management accounting, financial statements, income tax returns and business activity statements. Additional services are offered in forecasting, budgeting, superannuation and investment holding structuring.

Business Recovery and Insolvency Services

Whether a business is undergoing cessation, liquidation or bankruptcy, Pitcher Partners’ Business Recovery and Insolvency Services (BRIS) professionals achieve maximum recovery levels and strengthen businesses well into the future. Team members deal in a professional and sensitive manner with various stakeholders, often in an aggrieved state. 

Activities in the BRIS team can involve collecting records from the insolvent for analysis, preparing and reviewing detailed correspondence and statutory forms, liaising with legal representatives, attending court hearings, securing assets and negotiating with stakeholders.
