Our Story

SMARTAX was launched in 2006 by Sam Harrisson, who was driven by a passion to provide the best service possible to the Tasmanian individual and small business market.

Over the years, Sam has seen incredible growth in his business with both clients and staff, and today serves clients all over Australia.

Sam & the team at SMARTAX believes in the importance of small business and desires to see them succeed, therefore SMARTAX provides cost efficient services in the areas of accounting, taxation and business advice.

Having been a part of larger firms in the past, Sam knows that clients can simply become another number to an accountant, so SMARTAX strives to provide personal service to all of its valued clients.
