About Hadleys

Hadleys CPAs was founded by Michael Hadley. Previously Michael worked as accountant, chief accountant, financial controller and company secretary to a variety of organisations including multi-nationals, manufacturers, wholesalers, retailers and service providers. In his last role before entering practice Michael was company secretary and operations manager for a computer service bureau that provided computerised accounting and business solutions to some of the best known organisations in Australia.

These clients included News Limited, Health Commission of NSW, Fox Manufacturing, Institute of Clinical Pathology, Spastic Centre of NSW and the Housing Industry of Australia. It was the satisfaction and stimulation provided by this challenging advisory role that led Michael to establish Hadleys and commence practice on his own account.

Traditionally, the firm’s business base has consisted of corporate clients, high-wealth individuals and professionals. We have, since inception, focused on this market as being most appropriate for us. In so doing, consistent with our corporate mission, we have been able to dedicate the appropriate time and resource to the proper and professional servicing of our clients rather than having to resort to high-volume, low-quality, low-cost outputs to remain viable.

This focus combined with a simple philosophy that recognises our clients’ need to grow and prosper for us to grow and prosper has been the underlying reason for our success. And it’s certainly true that many of our largest clients today are those who were infant organisations when they first joined us. For that reason, we have always welcomed inquiry from potential clients no matter how small.

Self-managed superannuation (SMSF) is a flexible means of creating wealth and saving for your retirement. It also allows you to take control of your superannuation and adopt a customized investment strategy that suits your ideological preferences and financial goals while providing you with an opportunity to control fund administration costs.

Business Start-ups & Structures

There are four main business structures commonly used by small and medium sized businesses in Australia. Hadleys CPAs can provide expert advice in this respect. These structures include sole traderships, partnerships, companies and various forms of trust. Each has their own advantages and disadvantages and it’s important to understand the implications of each (especially legal liability and taxation) and the various obligations imposed upon you as the operator of the business.

It’s important to take advice about the structure most appropriate for you – not just in respect of your current circumstances but also to ensure the structure suits your future needs as well. Apart from meeting your current business, taxation and family requirements the chosen structure must accommodate your longer-term business objectives and be sufficiently flexible so it can evolve as your business evolves. Often a combination of companies and trusts may be appropriate.

At Hadleys we take the view the simplest, most cost-effective structure that suits your needs is the one that ought to be put in place in the first instance. But we ensure it’s sufficiently flexible to build on as time progresses and your circumstances change. We’ll let you know when structural modifications are warranted and implement those for you. And that’s a far better approach than building a complex organisation structure that’s top-heavy with overheads and features that may never be used.

With respect to your new business we can help with the following:

Family Law & Forensic Accounting

Finding the truth in family law matters.

Full and frank disclosure is vital if all relevant information is to be used to develop a clear, objective and independent outcome for all parties. This factual information removes the uncertainty, confusion and multiple concerns that often accompany a family law matter or where family trusts and complex business structures exist. By removing the uncertainties an earlier resolution of disputes is possible paving the way for a fairer outcome for all parties.

Hadleys CPAs offers financial investigative services that provide this clarity in areas such as unreported income and assets or the unravelling of complex structures. Using forensic analysis we are able to deliver the fine detail needed to expose the true facts of your matter. We also provide expert witness reports and testimony in property settlement litigation, mediation and/or arbitration that complies with the expert evidence rules of the Court.

Typically, the stumbling block in family law settlement negotiations is the difference of opinion regarding the value of the family business. Hadleys can help here as well. We are expert business valuers and frequently act as joint expert to provide business valuations to the Courts. We can also act as a single expert witness should you wish to dispute erroneous or non-independent valuations. Most importantly, our fees for this service are substantially less than the larger tier firms who offer this service.

Areas we cover include:

Hadleys CPAs provide forensic accounting services, business valuations and expert opinion needed to effectively and efficiently resolve family law and other disputes. To discuss your matter call us on 02 9686 6633 or email Michael Hadley -

This detail and quality of analysis allows our clients to properly prepare for the sale or purchase of a business, to help resolve commercial or family law disputes and deliver the best outcomes with business restructuring or mergers. We also perform relevant due diligence processes.

Hadleys specialise in expert business valuations for family law proceedings providing defensible reports and expert testimony. You may have confidence in our expertise and experience in court should your matter need to be resolved by the legal system. And most importantly, since we don’t carry any unnecessary overheads our fees for this specialist service are substantially lower than you would expect to pay to any of the larger tier firms.

Our business valuation services include:

Trust Advice

A trust provides a valuable way of protecting the assets you have accumulated for the benefit of yourself and family. A trust can also be a tax effective structure for running your business although there are many kinds of trust structures including discretionary, fixed and hybrid trusts.

Hadleys CPAS have extensive experience with trusts and we are able to offer specialist advice on the design, establishment and compliance of trusts, ensuring that all statutory and taxation requirements are met and the resulting trust meets your particular needs.

Our trust administration service includes:

We are also able to organise for the preparation and execution of documentation to establish your trust. In so doing we will instruct our incorporations specialist to ensure the terms of the trust meet your particular needs.

Investment Properties

Next to your family home, your investment property most likely represents the single largest expenditure you’ll make in your lifetime. For that reason, it’s important the property ownership is properly structured, the term and type of loan are appropriate and you maximise the taxation benefits of your investment.

Hadleys CPAs can assist in a variety of areas in relation to residential and commercial property including advice about:

Should the property be owned in one name, joint names or perhaps in some other form of investment structure such as a superannuation fund or trust? We’ll help you identify who is best placed to take advantage of the taxation and other longer term benefits of ownership.

Should you borrow short or long term with fixed or variable interest rates? Should the repayments be principal and interest instalments or interest only? Or perhaps a combination of some, or all, of these alternatives is warranted.

Cash flow analysis of your property investment will reveal whether you will be able to service the mortgage now and in the future.

Negative gearing and capital gains tax are two critical areas that ought to be considered when purchasing any investment property. It’s also extremely important to determine whether your proposed investment will attract the optimal capital allowance deductions and what documentation is necessary for a successful claim.

All of the above-mentioned areas are of vital importance and should be considered prior to the acquisition of an investment property. It’s as important, if not more important, than your pre-purchase building inspection or pest report.
