Registered Tax Agent
I’m passionate about accounting and taxation planning. I love showing people how numbers work so they get better at managing their taxes and planning ahead. So after more than 20 years working in the corporate sector and being a director of several companies and a property investor, I established Fortiz Accountants to help business owners, particularly new migrants and non-Australian resident investors, take their investment or businesses to the next level.
With extensive experience in senior finance and management roles in hotels, B&Bs, student accommodation, retail, and food and beverage (F&B) businesses, I’ve become an expert in yield management, ADR analysis, RevPAR, food costing and determining break-even costs. And we’re very proud of the outcomes we’ve achieved as business consultants – preparing sound projection reports with multiple scenarios to enable investors to proceed with multi-million-dollar investments.
I have lived in Melbourne for 20 years, and love building community networks, where I help organise fun events that bring people together. So when I’m not working on client accounts, I volunteer as Treasurer for Muhibbah Community Inc., an incorporated not-for-profit association. I’m also the Administrator of the Malaysians in Business Melbourne Facebook group.

I have spent my entire career working in taxation including corporate tax compliance and tax advisory. I started my career in Malaysia as a tax consultant in KPMG, where I rose steadily to become Tax Manager, Senior Tax Manager and eventually, Tax Director. I also worked as a Tax Manager for Dairy Farm Group of Companies and Malaysian Institute of Taxation as Technical Director.
I am meticulous and leave no stone unturned. I love working through raw data, making sense of it all and turning these into clear and concise tax returns. Having lived in several different countries, I have been exposed to various cultures and practices.
I spend my free time volunteering as a Treasurer for the Melbourne Figure Skating Club Inc., scrapbooking, baking, reading and supporting my children in their ice-skating practices and competitions.

Currently pursuing BCom/LLB
I am a highly motivated undergraduate working towards a BCom/LLB, majoring in Accounting. I work part-time while balancing my full-time undergraduate studies. I am multilingual, being able to converse in English, Malay, Mandarin, Cantonese (dialect) and Hokkien (dialect).
I was previously an intern in the Private Groups and High Wealth Individuals (PGH) business line, under the Technical Excellence Service (TES) team at the Australian Taxation Office, where I tasked to research various aspects of tax law including past legal cases relating to capital gains taxes, fringe benefits and penalties involved.
I balanced my undergraduate studies by volunteering as a Law Student Panel with Oxford University Press and participated in the Law Students’ Research Workshop conducted by Clayton Utz, a leading law firm. In my free time, I enjoy classical ballet dancing.
