It’s the best decision we ever made
We changed all of our tax matters, personal and business, to Scott Rae around two and a half years ago. Immediately after seeing Scott we had complete confidence in him! Since then I have had no worries about tax matters as Scott and his team are completely professional and cost effective. They are always available to answer any queries we may have and are diligent in making sure I complete any taxation office requirements on time.
I have no hesitation in referring Scott Rae and his team to family and friends. It’s the best decision we ever made moving our tax to their professional management.
