Last Updated: 16 June 2015

that our directors and key staff regularly speak at various events related to their respective industries of expertise?

With specialisations across a number of industries such as Primary Industries (specifically Agribusiness and Wine), Automotive, Property, Not-For-Profit and Hospitality, Moore Stephens is at the forefront of providing insights about various tax and accounting matters and how this affects each market sector.

Tim Siebert recently presented on topical issues for the Wine Industry, which included an overview of the 2015-16 Federal Budget, at a conference in the Coonawarra for the South Australian Wine Industry Association (SAWIA) on Thursday, 4 June 2015. SAWIA is the peak body representing South Australia's viticultural and winemaking interests.

He is also a keynote speaker at the upcoming WineTech2015, addressing the subject of "Capturing opportunities for export and investment support with Korea and Japan FTA's" on the last day of the conference being Thursday, 16 July 2015. WineTech2015 is presented by Wine Industry Suppliers Australia Inc. (WISA) in partnership with Kym Jones Exhibitions, and runs from 14 to 16 July at the Adelaide Showgrounds in Wayville.

WISA's Executive Officer, Matthew Moate says that "It will be a spectacular showcase of latest innovations and developments, along with proven products and services that support operators at all levels in the Australian and international wine industry." For information about WineTech2015, go to:

Also on the subject of Primary Industries, directors Cristina Clemente and Sam Woods are very involved in the Agribusiness sector and support the Northern Territory Cattlemen's Association (NTCA), attending their annual function and then undertaking visits to clients at their various outback cattle stations.
