The University of NSW is particularly renowned for the postgraduate Master of Taxation (MTAX) course conducted by its School of Taxation & Business Law. An MTAX (UNSW) is a prized qualification among taxation practitioners whether in private practice or the public service. Accordingly the quality of students undertaking the course is consistently high as are the standards of work expected of them.
UNSW has a small awards program through which prizes are bestowed on candidates who have delivered an outstanding performance in a subject, with the ultimate prize being for the person who achieves, among all, the outstanding academic performance for the whole course.
That prize has been awarded to Briony Hutchens, for her work through the course as completed last year. Spectacular! An absolutely fantastic achievement by Briony deserving all our congratulations.
This was achieved while Briony carried on her practice retaining her ‘Best Lawyers in Australia Listing: Wealth Management / Succession Planning Practice, since 2017 and Trusts & Estates, 2019’ and ‘Doyle’s Guide to the Australian Legal Profession Listing: Recommended Tax Lawyer – South Australia, 2017’ and balancing her work with the life demands including those of motherhood.
As a Legal Practitioner and Chartered Tax Advisor Briony advises on most areas of State and Federal taxes including superannuation, income tax, capital gains tax, goods and services tax (GST), stamp duty, payroll tax, land tax, taxation disputes, but also the structuring of businesses and transactions, inter-generational matters, wealth and succession planning, trusts and estates.
In completing her MTAX Briony joins the firm’s fellow MTAX graduates John Tucker, Christopher Knott and Brett Zimmermann in placing the firm among the leading tax, wealth, succession, trust and estates advisors in South Australia.
