Our Team

John Previti

"My personal goal is to ensure our clients receive the very best professional advice to grow their business and increase their family's wealth."

John has extensive experience in taxation, superannuation and business development.  He is a qualified Chartered Accountant with a Bachelor of Commerce from Curtin University majoring in Accounting and Taxation.  John has completed the Diploma of Financial Services (Financial Planning) and the Institute of Chartered Accountants SMSF Accreditation Course from the University of NSW.

John is a customer-focused accountant committed to providing excellent service to his clients, developing strong business relationships and ensuring all client calls are returned on the same day. 

Everybody wants to legally reduce the amount of tax they are required to pay.  John specialises in developing strategies to reduce the tax our client's pay using business structures such as companies, trusts and Self Managed Superannuation Funds.

Changes to the superannuation rules have provided significant opportunities to establish tax-free retirement incomes.  Through his postgraduate studies and constant professional development, John has a strong understanding of Self Managed Superannuation Funds and "thinks outside the square" to develop strategies to suit our client's needs.

John is also the Director of WMP Tax, a boutique finance broking firm that specialises in helping business owners get the best deal for their home or business loans.  We also can assist with car and equipment finance, ensuring our clients structure their finance in a way to maximise their tax deductions.
