RSM Australia

Case study: Jotown International

Consistent, stable growth at a healthy pace is Jotown International’s priority and focus.

RSM provides tax consulting and business advisory advice to property and construction businesses.Established in 2007, Jotown International is an evolving property developer specialising in land subdivision, complex residential building and apartment development.

They have delivered an extensive portfolio of projects across NSW and QLD and also maintain an active pipeline of potential future developments. Several projects of varying size are presently being completed, focussing primarily on the greater Sydney region.

The Challenge:

Jotown were looking to utilise the services of a firm that had experience across a variety of specialty areas, understood a business of their size and the industry they operated in. They initially approached RSM as a result of a referral by a contact who had been using RSM for many years (and is still with RSM today). It was this need for specific advice in the areas of tax, stamp duty and optimal company structuring that led to the beginning of a successful relationship.

The Experience:

Jotown’s experience of working with RSM has been a seamless one.

“I like the fact that I can feel confident that RSM handles the day to day work, but I have access to a Partner for the more complex advice, who is always accessible and available.
Tax and structuring can be an ambiguous and confusing area and I feel that the advice I get from Adam and the team at RSM is always the best option,” says Jotown’s Zhian Chen.

Government regulations, fluctuating economic factors and changing market conditions make the property sector a challenging and complex one to navigate, requiring the advice and knowledge of specialist advisers.


Adam Crowley, a Partner in the Business Advisory division with extensive property and construction experience, has been with Jotown International since the start of the engagement.

Zhian and the team at Jotown are fantastic to work with and it has been a pleasure to witness their business go from strength to strength during their time with us at RSM."

"Property development can be a tricky business. The transactions are often complex and involve significant figures. Getting the structure right and the technical issues sorted can make all the difference in undertaking a successful development,” adds Adam. 

The Future:

RSM are easily approachable. They care about their clients and want a long-term relationship. Having RSM as an adviser has allowed Jotown International to grow,” says Zhian Chen.

In the current, challenging industry environment, consistent, controlled growth and a healthy company continue to be the areas of focus for Jotown International going forward.
