“Learning is a journey, embrace it and educate others along the way.”

Raffi Tenenbaum

Director, Tax Services

Raffi’s passion for educating others is key to achieving shared success. He believes that tax advice goes much further than a conversation. Rather, it’s about collaborating together, sharing knowledge and understanding how to achieve business goals.

As a Director in William Buck’s Tax division, Raffi specialises in providing tax advice to privately-owned businesses across various industry sectors and is highly regarded for his tax-effective structuring and restructuring strategies.

Raffi is at his best when assisting clients implementing restructures, engaging in M&A and transactions and expanding their operations internationally.

With his years of experience as a senior presenter for CPA Australia, The Tax Institute and the Television Education Network, he is a go-to for technical advice and knowledge amongst his peers and industry experts.

Working across all sophistication levels, Raffi takes great pride in sharing his knowledge and acting as a trusted mentor and teacher.

Raffi is known for immersing himself in any situation.  When he’s not helping businesses succeed, he is travelling the world exploring all different cultures, a passion which has given huge depth to his experience and helped with his extensive business knowledge in the Asia Pacific region.  When not travelling, you’ll most likely find Raffi at a Rugby field or at the beach.
