Chaya Lal


Professional Experience

Chaya is a Partner working in the Business Advisory practice of our Melbourne office. She joined PKF in 2012 and was appointed Partner in the Business Advisory Division in 2017.

With a specialisation in the Property Development and Construction industry, Chaya is an industry expert in this area facilitating her clients with immense knowledge and experience.

While her clients are mainly in the building and construction industry, she also has in-depth experience with owner-operated supermarkets, professional service firms, and medical practices.

Although her main areas of focus are tax and business structuring advice to high net worth individuals and large family groups, Chaya is now increasingly working with business owners and entrepreneurs who have ‘outgrown’ their current service providers and are often in need of help.

Her focus and specialisation include restructuring in the SME space, Division 7A compliance (including becoming compliant), helping business owners through ATO reviews, trusts and advising new businesses in relation to structuring and helping business owners be ‘sale ready’ when they are in a position for management buyout or a sale.

Chaya’s hands-on and practical approach has seen her working closely and assisting her clients with implementing major restructure strategies and advising on complex tax issues in our ever-changing tax environment.

With over 15 years of chartered accountancy experience in both Australia and New Zealand, Chaya has worked within several accounting firms including KPMG, Fordham Business Advisors, BDO and Grant Thornton. Her vast experience makes her an asset to the Melbourne firm.
