Nishan Senaratne is the accounting principal of Success Tax Professionals in the suburb of Kewdale.
Nishan Senaratne has a bachelor degree in Business with double majors in accounting and economics from Edith Cowan University and a post graduate degree in tax from Curtin where he graduated with a distinction average. Post graduation he was in the corporate sector where he was the accountant at The Australian Medical Publishing company in Sydney, which is a subsidiary of the Australian Medical Association. He is a Fellow of the National Tax Accountants’ Association (NTAA), an Associate member of the Australian Society of Certified Practising Accountants’ and a Registered Tax Agent.
Nishan made the transition into public practice because he wanted to have contact with the public and take on more challenging and rewarding work.
‘In my accounting and taxation practice I have the opportunity to meet people from all sorts of occupations, industries and businesses. Unlike private sector work which can be isolated and quite singular in focus, public practice provides such an interesting work environment,’ says Nishan.
‘In Kewdale, we get background information about our clients at the interview stage so that we can research effective options that match their circumstances. Too many industry accountants rely on tax basics that they knew five, ten or even more years ago. In our practice we are constantly looking at new material and changes. There is a lot of advanced information out there.
‘We also like to look at interesting areas in the field of business. Tax legislation for ‘art’ in the workplace is a good example. Art creates great ambience and positive feelings in the office, workshop or factory. There are tax deductible benefits here for business owners, plus art can be an investment and provide capital gains over time,’ adds Nishan.
The practice in Kewdale provides services to businesses, individuals and for self managed super funds. The practice team have a special interest in business structures – including partnerships, companies, trusts and sole traders. They also provide tax return preparation, lodgement and review services.
