  • 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.
