Our practice areas
Tax Advisory

Pitcher Partners tax professionals 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. 

Our tax advisors 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 dedicated 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.
