Paul Pun-Prahran

Personal Profile

My strategic approach and passion for the people I work with enable me to deliver a vital role that encompasses a holistic view of my clients’ needs. Acting as a strategic business partner, I support my clients by highlighting and dealing with potential issues to best achieve desired outcomes.

When financial matters and decision-making become complex, it often involves a range of issues, stakeholder considerations, commercial and personal outcomes. Strategic tax structuring is imperative and this is where I excel for my clients. Combining strategy, technical proficiency, and a desire to help my clients achieve their personal aims, I clearly understand and implement the best structures for my clients’ immediate and future needs. In many cases, my clients have achieved far more from their business than originally envisaged.

  • Bevan Robertson-Christie (Fresh St Kilda)

    I sought Paul’s professional advice on the best approach for financial structuring to protect assets and to negotiate commercial interests. After seeking prior advice which was unclear at best, in one session with Paul I had a complete and prioritised list of recommendations including a broader plan that I will implement through the course of this financial year. Paul provided me with clarity and certainty on the way forward on a subject I had previously spent many hours trying to clarify.
