About Us

About Adam Ahmed & Co

We are qualified commercial lawyers and accountants, meaning we can leverage both sets of skills to your maximum advantage.

We are a Sydney based team of qualified commercial lawyers and accountants, leveraging our combined skills to your maximum advantage. We work passionately with small and medium sized businesses to deliver an outstanding service.

With a solid history working for large corporates and multinationals within large law and accounting firms, we saw a gap in the market and in 2012, set out to deliver the same skill and quality of service to small and medium businesses.

Adam Ahmed & Co has been appointed to the Small Business Concierge Service Tax Lawyer list run by the Australian Small Business and Family Enterprise Ombudsman. Under this service, you may be eligible for advice on how to run a case against the ATO in the Administrative Appeals Tribunal.

Our focus is on getting the strategy right for optimum results.

Our combined skills allow to work across

  • tax law advice and assistance with tax audits and disputes
  • tax planning and asset protection
  • commercial and business law advice
  • negotiation and drafting of contracts
  • migration law assistance – applying for visas and appealing decisions
  • property law advice and negotiation – for example negotiations with developers
  • government grant assistance – in particular research and development grants and export market development grants

My business recently received a significant Export Market Development Grant thanks to the efforts and experience of Adam Ahmed. I didn’t even know these grants were available to me. When Adam contacted me I was initially skeptical however he has proved himself to work with the utmost professionalism, confidentiality and respect. His completion of the application form was thorough and consultative, ensuring the maximum amount could be claimed. I was most amazed at his experience and ability to negotiate with the grant officers to ensure speedy completion of the process and delivery of the grant. My small business now has significant funds to expand its markets overseas, and I strongly urge other Australian businesses to engage with Adam Ahmed & Co. to take advantage of this wonderful opportunity.

With his help, our application was successful and we hope to work with Adam in the future again.”
