What our clients say about us..

"Paul has been known to me in my role as Managing Director of Matrix Bloodstock for over 10 years. In this time, I have always respected and admired the manner in which Paul has engaged in educating and servicing the thoroughbred industry in all matters relating to taxation advice and consultancy.

More recently we did work together to prepare a detailed response to a review by the Australian Taxation Office addressing compliance matters relating to the company's tax affairs in regards to the bloodstock breeding and racing operation. Paul's knowledge of the industry and well thought out approach provided us with relevant background information to confidently submit a well documented business plan that was supported by industry trends and statistics. Paul's extensive knowledge of pedigrees, stallions fees, broodmare produce, yearling sales results and the taxation regulations all combine to give a practical approach to any matters requiring clarification.

If you want down to earth, no nonsense advice, knowing that you can be confident in your business plans and structure going forward, I highly recommend using Paul Carrazzo"

I can't thank him enough for assisting us"

Michael Crismale, Matrix Bloodstock Pty Ltd, Vice Chairman Australian Turf Club (NSW)


An astute commercial breeder suggested I consult with Paul Carrazzo when I transitioned my breeding and racing interests from hobbyist to a commercial enterprise. As such, I expected to receive first class structuring, tax and accounting advice. I am delighted to say that nothing has changed across the five years that I have been working with Paul.

What I didn't expect from Paul and what has made it all the more enjoyable to work with him is his passion for the thoroughbred industry. Whilst structuring, tax planning and accounting are essential to any commercial enterprise, I must say, being able to speak with your accountant about your horses is unique. He knows them, he follows them, he rides the ups and downs with you that our industry inevitably hands out.

First class practitioner and first class bloke."

Laurie Macri, Commercial breeder, Australian Turf Club Director

"I engaged Carrazzo Consulting to be the accountants for my thoroughbred enterprise in 2006 when I was making the transition from "hobby breeder" to a commercial breeder.

Paul assisted me with the establishment of Bradley Thoroughbreds Pty Ltd. I have always received excellent service from him and continue to engage Carrazzo Consulting to the present day.

Paul Carrazzo has a high degree of expertise in providing accounting services to the professional breeder and to ensure compliance with Australian tax law.

Thoroughbred breeding on a commercial scale involves complex accounting, legal and taxation issues, all of which Paul has handled to a high standard."

Brian Bradley, Partner Bradley Bayly Legal (WA)


"I have been associated with Paul Carrazzo for nearly 10 years and he was instrumental in the commencement of my bloodstock entity.

His dealings with other legal and financial advisors on my behalf both domestically and overseas have always been professional and seamless.

Paul's passion and enthusiasm for the thoroughbred industry is infectious and along with his regular public speaking allows him to remain up to date with all the latest financial and taxation issues affecting the industry.

Paul always makes himself available personally and his team at Carrazzo Consulting has always been professional, proactive and accommodating.

Stewart Hume, Berwickshire Bloodstock Pty Ltd (QLD)


"At his regular horse tax seminars Paul shows a positive and happy attitude to accounting and an endearing aptitude for horse tax issues."

Richard Logan, Logans Livestock Insurance (NSW)


Paul, sometimes we go through life not knowing the impact (good or bad) we have on others. I just want to let you know that you have given our vision a massive shot in the arm by yours and your staff's professionalism and expertise. Also I think you blog/website is most informative.
