Jolyon Dare is a highly qualified and seasoned taxation practitioner. Jolyon joined HLB Mann Judd in 2005 as Manager, Tax Services.
Through ongoing presentation to members of The Tax Institute and ICAA, Jolyon has become recognised as an industry thought-leader recognised for his understanding of commercial taxation matters, particularly those that apply to small to medium-sized businesses. This includes high level expertise in:
tax consolidation specifically in relation to how corporations treat losses, depreciation deductions, cost bases, franking accounts and inter-company transactions, and more broadly how the tax consolidation regime can help corporations restructure their affairs or pursue growth whilst maximising tax efficiencies
transaction advisory services, this typically includes taxation due diligence, through a thorough analysis of historical tax returns and financial statements, to identify tax risks and opportunities associated with a transaction, and
international taxation, including foreign sourced income, permanent establishment matters and transfer pricing issues.
Jolyon’s technical proficiency was well demonstrated as a result of taxation due diligence task which involved a multinational in the waste management sector acquiring an existing business in an acquisition valued at around $45 million. Through a comprehensive risk analysis of the target’s corporate structure and taxation affairs, a number of significant issues were identified that allowed greater value to be extracted from the acquisition, mostly as a result of tax consolidation arrangements. Administration and compliance costs were also minimised. Jolyon has the ability to work within a tight time frame, resulting in all work being completed within one month of taking initial instructions from the client.
