“The best practice to problem solving is to think outside the square, measure twice and cut once.

Todd Want

Director, Tax Services

Todd is someone who likes to look at the big picture and make sure that he has considered all possible solutions that could work for the client. He makes sure that he’s asked the right questions and has all the facts on the table before making decisions.

For Todd, the key is to fix the source of the problem rather than its effects. And while he is someone who likes to step back and take a bigger view of the issues, he is also equally keen to be involved throughout all aspects of the project.

Todd’s expertise lies in small-to-medium enterprise taxation matters. He advises clients on a broad range of tax issues such as capital gains tax, advice relating to structuring and restructuring, the tax consequences of acquisitions and divestments, small business CGT concessions, Division 7A, taxation of trusts, international tax issues and tax risk management.

Passionate about the profession, Todd is a member of CAANZ and CPA and The Tax Institute. Todd is currently a National Councillor and Director at The Tax Institute and is a member of their NSW Professional Development Committee and State Council.

Todd also provides specialist consulting services to accountants, lawyers, financial planners and other professionals in public practice to assist them in advising their clients. As part of this role, he regularly prepares and presents papers and training sessions on changes to tax legislation and interpretations.

Todd enjoys working with his clients on their projects and relishes a challenge every now and again.
