Q&A with Kylee Smith

How did you come to work at Pilot?
I started at Pilot in my last year of university as an undergraduate. I was looking for an employer in the city that provided flexible hours and working days while I finished my Bachelor of Commerce at Griffith University.

What are your specialty or focus areas?
I am a tax specialist that focuses on corporate and individual taxation to help clients navigate through and beyond their current situation. I have helped clients with goods and services tax, income tax, capital gains tax, and fringe benefits tax as part of establishing their business or throughout their business operations.

What do you help your clients do best?
I enjoy working closely with clients to understand their goals and identifying opportunities or solutions to help them achieve their goals tax effectively. I am an advocate of ensuring that businesses are structured correctly from commencement and educating clients about the advantages and disadvantages of the various structures.

What is the most rewarding part of your role?
The most rewarding part of my role is working closely with staff, referrers and clients to build long term relationships. I have been with Pilot for a number of years now and it has been fulfilling to see the businesses of referrers and clients I have worked with expand through increasing capacity, mergers, acquisitions and/or sales.

Tell us something about yourself that we wouldn’t find on the Pilot website
I love being creative. I enjoy doing arts and crafts (preferably without the kids and their mess), whether it be painting rocks to hide in parks for others to find or building carparks and megaphones out of cardboard for the kids.
