Investment Strategy Advisers

It takes time to build wealth. Now you need accountants who will help you manage your investments well. We put you first and always seek to act in your best interests and to help you achieve your goals.

Prudent. Measured. Insightful.

Creativity is key to innovation, but good management is key to bringing it to fruition. The challenges that most lean startups and established businesses in the innovation /technology space face are how to manage investment in innovation the right way. How do they make the most of government tax exemptions, grants and incentives? How do they track and measure the success of their projects? How can they measure the impact of their overall investments in innovation on the bottom line?


It can be complex, but EWM Accountants & Business Advisors can help you through the fog of uncertainty. We devote the time and effort to the background detail, which frees you up to invest in your innovation, manage team progress, and make prudent, timely decisions. Working together, we ensure that you reap the reward from your investments.

Accountants that Help You with Innovator and Early Investor Tax Law

You have an innovative idea? After the ATO amended tax laws for innovators and early-stage investors in 2016, new tax concessions have opened up for startups with high growth potential, especially in the innovation and technology space. This includes a 20% carry-forward tax offset per year (total combined amount: $200,000) and an exemption from capital gains tax for qualifying investors (with investments held between 1 and 10 years). We can advise if you qualify and guide you on how to make the most of these concessions.


Our services include all aspects of tax accounting and planning, pre-30 June reviews, tax cost minimisation strategies, capital gains tax record keeping, BAS and IAS requirements, and cloud bookkeeping services. We will make sure you comply with all statutory requirements at both state and federal levels – it is our job, not yours, to keep up with all the legislation.
