Charlie from Thornleigh

"SAA Hornsby was amazing in helping my company setting up MYOB software. Julia was super knowledgeable and skilful in setting up the system and very patient in coaching me and my staff to use MYOB. She went above and beyond what most would do in her place. Anytime I need something, SAA-Hornsby has it, I am very satisfied with SAA services."

Bob from Hornsby

"My income situation in 2017/18 was unusual. I had multiple income sources. Apart from normal salary, I had lump sum payments, properties and shares. I was worrying that I might have to pay a huge tax bill. I talked to Julia and she pointed out some legally allowed deductions and certain business costs that I had ignored. She did tax return for me, and guess what, I received a small tax refund money from ATO. I am impressed by Julia’s knowledge on personal tax. I recommend her and I believe she would be able to look after your tax matters well."
