Michael Haywood
Senior Accountant - Perth


Personal, business and SMSF tax compliance can cause many headaches, but Michael Haywood always finds a solution that really fits each client’s unique needs and circumstances.

Michael’s customer-first mindset is shown every day. He would be rather be sitting in front of a client assisting them, than sitting behind a desk punching numbers. Knowing how difficult and confusing people can find their tax is what motivates him to get to know each client personally, which always results in the best outcome for them.

“My career has always been solely based around customer service; I see this as the heart of any business and find it incredibly rewarding.”

Michael always strives to give each task his utmost attention; it is not unusual to receive emails from him very early in the morning or later in the afternoon. “I do my best work between 6.00 am - 10.00am and 5.00pm - 9.00pm” he says.  

As a self-confessed sports fanatic, you can find Michael watching nearly any type of sports in his spare time, at the gym or playing a round of golf.
