Smartcorp has embarked on a period of renewal to bolster our strong position in the market.

The major brand rejuvenation comes as the business experiences excellent growth as increasing numbers of Australian accounting and professional service firms together with financial adviser networks turn to Smartcorp for quality corporate documentation. At last count, we had supplied over half a million documents to our clients nationally although we expect these numbers to grow significantly as we adapt our offering to meet the evolving needs of the market. And while our recent client survey found that our existing clients are very satisfied with our service, we want to stay one step ahead in continuing to innovate.

We’ve embarked on this journey more than three decades after Smartcorp first launched onto the market, knowing these innovations will create major benefits for our clients. Our core team of staff has been energised by this new phase of growth and remain committed to the journey and our desire to continue to innovate in this space. Our dedicated team works hard to deliver a seamless offering up front, there is also an incredible amount of client servicing taking place, ensuring we are constantly meeting the expectations of our loyal clients. We see this as a key differentiator from other company incorporation and document providers.

“We’ve selected a highly experienced Panel of Experts to guide our decisions and keep our business at the forefront of this industry.”

As part of our rejuvenation process, we’ve selected a highly experienced Panel of Experts to guide our decisions and keep our business at the forefront of this industry. The Panel of Experts will act as a “brains trust” to turn to as we continue to find new ways to innovate and adapt our offering as the needs of our clients evolve.

These broader strategic relationships bring together some of the brightest and most experienced experts in the country. We are proud to have them working with us to ensure our offering meets and exceeds the expectations of our clients.

Among them is our key legal advisor, David Morgan, who has three decades of experience in advising and drafting documents relating to corporations, trusts and superannuation matters. Also an integral part of our team is well-respected Barrister at the Victorian Bar, Eamonn Moran PSM QC, who possesses years of experience in drafting legislation on behalf of government and understands best practice in legal document structure. Also on our panel is career corporate secretary Sue Norfolk, who has set up countless new business structures over the years and has an intimate knowledge of ASIC registry and other corporate registration matters.

Our Panel of Experts will continue to grow, ensuring our clients are in safe hands when it comes to all of their company registration and trust documentation services. I guarantee that this business will go on to meet and exceed the expectations of our clients for many years to come, and welcome client feedback at any time with suggested improvements.
Smartcorp do not offer legal advice. Clients may need to seek their own advice from financial and legal advisors.
