I have been seeing an accountant at DPM since I graduated from university. Our annual appointment is always professional while also being a friendly catch up on the year. I have recently been assisted by a financial advisor to arrange income protection. The process was smooth and timely. I felt very well supported with plenty of information provided and they kept me up to date on the progress of my application. DPM is a friendly team and always very easy to get in touch with!

William Indrawan and his team were very extremely helpful in helping me with my taxes - they were professional, efficient and very knowledgeable. It would have taken me so much time and dedicated research to find out what deductions you are allowed for your taxes as a medical doctor, especially coming from another country. The service was very personalized and such a pleasant personal interaction. And yes, I had a good tax return! Thank you!

I have been with DPM working with Aaron Burton for a number of years. My only regret is that we did not engage his services sooner. Aaron has been an excellent guide and advisor, who understands your circumstances and ensures we have made the right decisions at all times. We would recommend him and the services of DPM most highly

I have been with DPM for a couple of years. I first started by meeting my now accountant Anthony Pane and he has been wonderful in every single way. I was audited last year and I was able to relax and let Anthony do what he does best. Later I also got insurance advice from Mat, and Eyal has become my broker. Everybody in the team has been great and very helpful. Definitely recommend 👍

Great service! I truly appreciate all the assistance and pleasant service rendered by DPM Financial Services with regards to the filing of my taxes. They were very helpful specially due to the fact that I have already migrated overseas during the period of filing. They kept constant communication and were very prompt to respond to all my enquiries. THANK YOU!

I have been a client of DPM for almost 2 years now, and they are a fantastic team that really do give you bang for your buck!My acountant has helped me navigate through the complex world of salary packaging, and has been excellent in completing tax returns each year. He doesn't just "do my taxes," he explains things and helps me understand concepts myself so as to calm the stress levels. When I wanted to apply for a home loan I was directed to a Lending Consultant who has been nothing short of brilliant. They are efficient, they are helpful and they are extremely approachable. I don't know how much money I would have wasted had I not had DPM's guidance. Definitely worth it!

FAQs

Our advice philosophy centres on all we know of a medical professional’s journey – your journey. As a non-aligned business, DPM will give you the best advice for your personal situation, without pushing any specific product or affiliate company along the way. It ensures we always work in your best interest.

During our long history of working with doctors, we’ve developed solid relationships with various partners across the finance industry. We believe we can access more competitive deals for you than you’d normally get through the retail market. As a client of DPM, you’ll have direct access to a dedicated team of consultants, all specialists in their fields. They’ll work together, align their advice and prepare you to be in the best financial position. Our services work together as a fully integrated solution – you won’t have to deal with multiple companies or people to make it all happen.

Absolutely not. We designed the DPM service offering based on our knowhow of what medical professionals will need throughout their careers. The services work together as a fully integrated solution to give the best outcome, but they also stand alone as individual services tailored to your needs.

Yes, we do. And, yes, you can. It’s a given with the medical profession that you’ll need to move around to take up opportunities. We currently have clients all over Australia and the world. To cater for this global client-base, all our meeting rooms are set up with web conferencing, ensuring we can give you our full attention, no matter where you are. Of course, we’d love to meet you personally at our Melbourne or Sydney office, but we’re also grateful for the technology that lets us work with you remotely to make sure you get the best outcomes, even when you’re on the move.

As long as you’re a medical school student, we can complete your tax returns for any and all prior years. And, no, we won’t charge you for that service.

The Student Loan is available to final year medical students who have received their letter of offer for their internship year. Through the Young Doctors Package, students may be able to access up to $50,000 unsecured (subject to serviceability criteria) for a loan term of up to 5 years. To find out more about the Student Loan, get in touch with one of our DPM consultants to discuss your personal situation and whether the student loan could be suitable for you. For more details on the Student Loan, click here.

Absolutely. Managing your finances as well as your partner’s means we can provide a more complete service to both of you. The majority of our clients who are in a relationship opt to become clients as a couple or as a family. It’s more practical and allows us to help you plan more effectively for your future.
