David Jamieson

I believe that the best way to make dreams come true is to wake up. The most rewarding part of my role is to wake up business owners. I help them understand their reasons for being in business, define their path forward and then stick to it. David Jamieson
Business Advisory Director

Professional experience

David has more than 20 years of experience in business advisory, delivering peace of mind to his clients through practical and holistic advice.

David is genuine, approachable and cares about his clients. He enjoys meeting and working with new people, so naturally he loves his role as a business adviser, delivering long-term financial solutions that benefit his clients and their business.

David typically works with SMEs from a diverse range of industries who all have one thing in common: they need more than just a compliance accountant. His clients are looking for accountability to continuously improve and to understand the numbers so they can make informed decisions. He provides smart advice to his clients to help them achieve their ambitions and create tangible business results. Willing to play ‘devil’s advocate’ and always contributing a fresh perspective, David acts as a sounding board and adds value to any discussion, often helping his clients find opportunities that others miss. His clients have peace of mind and are comfortable in the knowledge that their taxation, business and accounting affairs are being handled with care and consideration.

David has a passion for helping foreign-owned corporations establish operations in Australia. He has assisted numerous clients in commencing their operation in an effective ownership structure while avoiding common pitfalls for foreign-owned entities.
