Our Story

Hi, I’m Sarah.

One of my passions in life is to show as many Australians as possible just how simple it can be to access skilled, friendly, responsive and reliable tax, accounting and bookkeeping assistance.

Way back in 2012, about 12 years into my accounting career, I started to notice an increased demand in the number of people who didn’t want to have to leave their home or interrupt their working day, in order to have their annual tax return prepared by a skilled specialist. I also began to notice a huge growth in the number of creative online businesses emerging and rapidly transforming into well-known success stories.

At the time, a meeting with your accountant or bookkeeper was generally considered a tedious task that happened in person, once or twice a year, and often involving a shoe box of receipts.

I realised it was time to create a business model that met the clear need for fast access to skilled help – without having to interrupt your day or leave your desk, and so, Freshwater Taxation was borne.

Over the years, our business has grown and evolved in many different ways. We now have an incredible, long-term team; and we offer all of our services remotely via email, phone and Zoom. We pride ourselves on our 5 star customer services and our round-the-clock responsiveness.
