See who we are

‘Tax for Tradies’ is led by Michael Gallagher who is a Registered Tax Agent who holds a Masters Degree in Taxation Law from the ATAX Law School of UNSW. Michael has a Public Practice Certificate from the Institute of Public Accountants and financial planning qualifications. Michael is a registered trainer holding a Certificate IV in Training and Assessment and is an active member of the National Tax and Accountants Association. Michael lectures Taxation Law at CQUniversity Melbourne campus and is the national coordinator for the Course.

‘Tax for Tradies’ team employs qualified accountants and bookkeepers. You will have the best people looking after your needs.

We believe that the cornerstone to your success is ‘not to let financial matters slip’ and to ensure that you 'keep the government happy'. It is useless building wealth to find that you have been placed into a tax avoidance arrangement which is accordingly annihilated by the Tax Office. Your wealth will disappear in the pursuing legal costs, short-fall in tax payments, penalties and interest. Timely advice is the key to effective taxation planning.

‘Tax for Tradies’ works within the spirit of the law in its taxation advice so there is never a problem. Michael interviews all trades persons personally to ascertain their needs. Trades Persons’ needs may vary from preparation of a tax return only to a full financial plan including a risk profile, ‘fact finding’ exercise, cash flow budget and full Statement of Advice.

Our firm works in association with InterPrac Financial Planning Pty Ltd that holds an Australian Financial Services Licence.( AFSL: 246638 ) and an Australian Credit Licence. (ACL: 388051) to ensure that your needs are met in the areas of Financial Planning, Insurances, Leasing, Vehicle and Equipment finance, Mortgages and General Insurance.
