1990 - 1996 Worked for Auditing firm Anderson, Rochussen & Crisp in the tax department dealing with individual and corporate tax compliance. 1997 - 2007 member of a CC started by myself and 2 colleagues which provided accounting, tax and company secretarial services. I performed accounting and payroll services but the bulk of my work was tax compliance. Since the CC was terminated I have worked on my own providing tax compliance for my clients. Some of these taxpayers have been clients since before 1996.
