Dear customer, in relation to your important matter, you will need to comply with the VCAT order that has been issued, but as your accountant was made responsible for the company with ASIC, you will be able to raise a negligence claim against your accountant.

If you would like to discuss this matter further by telephone, I welcome you to request those services.

If you have any further questions, I would be pleased to answer those for you.

Please don’t forget to leave positive feed back by supporting for 5 stars as it allows me to support your questions.

Kind regards
John Melis
