Martin van der Saag
Martin is absolutely passionate about giving his clients great service and developing his team. He enjoys a lot of contact with North Advisory clients across the board from individuals to corporations.
Martin graduated with a Bachelor of Economics from the University of Sydney 1981. He is a Chartered Accountant and has been with North Advisory since 1982 as employee and as the business owner since 1989.
Martin's week starts with a team meeting each Monday morning to discuss how the latest tax legislation news will impact North Advisory clients. The learning and development process continues as Martin reviews individual cases with team members, resolving issues and mentoring their development. He then works with his own client base enjoying face to face consultations and giving advice and information.
In Martin's words:
"Even though I've been here a few years now I still very much enjoy client contact and helping new and existing clients to increase their productivity and become more profitable. I am still enthused about tax and finding the very best ways to help businesses and individuals through the complex processes. I constantly look for new opportunities that will benefit our clients, for example we are currently focusing on software solutions for our clients which help increase efficiency.
I understand that my team love connecting with and helping our clients so I encourage my employees to take ownership of cases and take great pride in seeing the team doing a great job. I still sign off on every Tax Return. Every job crosses my desk and I take overall responsibility for it."
