Shannon Smit is the lead practitioner.

For more than 20 years, Shannon has consulted companies on taxation, accounting, transfer pricing and consulting projects. With 8 years spent working in the USA and Europe, she has extensive experience in advising both Australian and foreign multi-national companies.
