CLIENT RESULTS

We’ve helped numerous clients avoid liquidation or bankruptcy or implement strategies to deal with the effects of these types of insolvency appointments. Here are some of their experiences.

  • In an unfortunate series of events our Directors were faced with Director Penalty Notices issued by the ATO.  We sought advice with and subsequently engaged Pearce & Heers to assist us with the negotiation with the ATO to obtain a solution. This resulted in a good outcome, with a manageable payment plan to alleviate the debt without any further measures needing to be taken by the ATO.  I would happily recommend their services.

  • Jarvis is always available to provide straight answers and assist clients who are going through a lot with business not going well.

    Jay, Accountant

  • Losing your business and financial security is a very stressful time for anyone but dealing with Jarvis and the team at Pearce & Heers made a very difficult time that little bit easier. I would definitely recommend you talk to Pearce & Heers if you find yourself in a difficult situation such as ours.
