Colleen Jackson

Founder and Managing Director

Prior to establishing Depwest in 2006, Colleen was employed at one of the largest tax depreciation companies which operate Australia wide for almost a decade.  Whilst, employed with this company she gained vast experience and became aware of a niche in the market which resulted in her desire to establish a Western Australian Tax Depreciation Company who would predominantly service Western Australia.   On request from her strong client base, she provides an Australian Wide service, making periodic trips aiming to service the clients who hold investment properties inter-state.

Colleen has vast extensive experience in the provision of tax depreciation.  She has dealt with taxation compliance, provided taxation advice and completed tax depreciation schedules for a vast range of clients in various industries from individual residential properties to mixed use resorts/complexes and from family run businesses to large industrial companies.

Colleen has successfully grown a thriving company and when she isn’t ensuring her clients are maximising their intituled deductions, she enjoys keeping physically active and spending time with her family.
