There are many ways to create positive tax outcomes in transactions. These can include the use of tax-effective structures, like trusts and companies, and choosing appropriate timing and jurisdictions. However, creating new structures, or altering existing ones, can come at a cost; one that can, at times, outweigh any potential tax benefit.

By considering all such potential issues, our specialist team of tax lawyers, arguably South Australia’s strongest, provides practical and effective tax solutions to even the most complex matters for companies, accountants, financial planners and private clients.

This ensures you are able to proceed with absolute confidence that you will gain maximum benefit and avoid any unpleasant surprises.

We first sought the services of William Esau and his team in 2013 to assist with various commercial matters that were important to the continued growth of our business. From the first meeting, we were impressed with not only the professionalism and knowledge of William and his team, but also William’s personable and pragmatic approach. This was very important to our business. On that basis, our relationship has evolved over the years, and we now consider William and the team at DW Fox Tucker Lawyers to be our trusted advisors – using them for commercial, tax, property, employment and workers compensation advice. We have no hesitation in recommending William and his team to anyone seeking clear, concise and commercial advice.

DW Fox Tucker was able to help me during one of the most stressful times in my life. Going through a separation, and not being able to locate critical trust documents through my accountant, they took my call, and from reception all the way to Amy they have been amazing. I was able to get my trust deed details updated for minimal cost, and have support to ensure that my trust fund was protected from future claims, in a very short space of time. Thank you to Amy and the DW Fox Tucker team for always being available to help but knowing that you are not going to have a scary bill at the end!!
