Since 2019, the UNSW Tax & Business Advisory Clinic has provided independent, free and confidential tax and business advice for individuals and small business owners in severe financial distress. The Clinic strives to contribute to a more just society by addressing deeper systemic injustices at the frontline.
Our community-led approach serves people in financial hardship across NSW by partnering with the community sector (financial counsellors, crisis support, domestic violence support, pro-bono legal clinics) to identify and support clients who would otherwise not have access to tax and business advice. Further, we identify otherwise unmet needs in our clients and support them through cross-referrals with social workers, mental health support workers, financial counsellors and pro bono lawyers.
A teaching clinic, the Clinic operates as an integrated work-integrated-learning space. This gives enrolled students an opportunity to work alongside tax professionals to help our client base while developing their technical and professional skills in delivering high-quality tax advice. We also offer volunteering opportunities to students from faculties across the university.
We also have a bold agenda for grassroots research on systemic issues faced by financially and socially disadvantaged individuals and small business.
