Venetta Sacha from Hall Consulting Group and her team have been providing tax and accounting services to myself, my associates and related private companies for more than 3 years, providing efficient and timely advice regarding our business ventures and dealing with Australian and international transactions and tax laws.
Both I and my wife, Ulla Savisalo, are passionate supporters and promoters of St Petersburg’s Eifman Ballet Theatre and have encouraged, followed and promoted the success of these incredible Russian dancers around the world. A year ago we decided to sponsor the theatre performance in Australia and introduce the ballet to the Australian audience for the first time. As this was our first experience of this nature in Australia and time was short, we requested Venetta’s help.
Her team did a fantastic job to arrange and organise the visa approval process and deal with all other legal, tax, insurance and administrative issues acting on behalf of both sponsor-company and ballet-company. Their outstanding contribution and enormous efforts to meet all deadlines and successfully finalise the visa process, as well as arranging for all tax and other registrations and exemptions, were greatly appreciated by us and the 80 dancers and crew.
We rely totally on the skills and advice of the Hall Consulting Group and know that they will go out of their way to help us meet our business and personal goals, optimise our tax and proactively review and continue to improve our business structure.
We look forward to bringing the Russian ballet back to Australia in April 2014 and know that these are the people we can trust to manage another successful business venture.
