GST

 

The Hall & Wilcox GST team provides best practice GST advice that is easy to understand and implement.

We advise a wide range of clients, from high net worth individuals to multinational corporations. We take a commercial approach to issues, and provide practical advice and solutions on how to best proceed with transactions and business restructures in a tax-effective way.

We provide market leading advice over the course of the tax life cycle to mitigate risk, and resolve matters of controversy. We specialise in identifying GST risks arising from business activities and minimising the resulting GST cost to our clients.
