I set-up the business structures for Lorraine Poulos as she moved from the corporate world into business … from employee to sole trader to company director … we’ve watched LPA blossom since inception and it’s our job to support the company’s growth. We’ve guided Lorraine and her company in buying major assets and hiring staff and contractors.

We monitor the key numbers in Lorraine’s business so that she can focus on growing and developing new products and services with her team. We keep the Australian Taxation Office (ATO) happy and keep LPA up to date, making sure the company does the right thing. We legally minimise tax for LPA and we navigate the complex and occasionally challenging decisions facing her business.
