My clients need personalised and global advice which not many tax advisors can offer in Australia.
I am a Public Accountant, MBA, Member of the Institute of Public Accountants and a Registered Tax Agent in Australia. I am also a Board Director of the Australia-Latin America Business Council (ALABC).
I have more than 15 years providing individual tax assistance and cross-border tax, reporting and social security advice to Australian companies working in Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Ecuador, Mexico and Peru. I have assisted companies with their first arrival into these and other Latin American locations, both in meeting compliance obligations and in understanding the cultural differences and potential barriers which can be hard to navigate when entering this market.
In my previous role at PwC I led an interdisciplinary & global tax and payroll team to provide services to global companies. Such assistance to clients has involved the implementation of their global rewards programs as a result of the companies’ HR strategy, and the analysis of the performance/effectiveness of rewards & mobility programs, processes improvement (considering LEAN initiatives) and compliance reviews on statutory requirements, payroll and tax aspects. I have also been supporting global organisations with establishing the right level of governance of their global payroll operations and new related initiatives, such as mitigation plans, impact of new reward plans, changes on tax, social security and payroll reporting requirements.
Part of my experience at PwC included being the Senior Account Manager for a top-tier mining company.
I also created PwC’s Latin American multidisciplinary desk which included involvement in several activities to encourage Australian investors to do business in Latin America. These activities resulted in the creation of genuine business relationships with ambassadors, business leaders.
In 2007, I was an Assistant Lecturer, Tax Law for Public Accounting and Business programs at University of Santiago, Chile. I relocated to Australia in 2008.
I speak English, Spanish and Portuguese.
