Jonathon Wilkes



I found my calling in accounting after commencing my first cadetship at a small city-based business services firm in 2008. My experience included taking night classes and doing coffee runs for the partners, before I moved onto larger firms to focus on tax consulting.

Since then, I gained experience servicing some of the wealthiest individuals, families and household-name brands in Australia. With over 14+ years experience in business services and tax consulting, I am able to draw on a broad range of experiences to provide clear and commercial advice.

My focus as a principal at Solve since July 2021 is to provide tax-efficient advisory and compliance services to business owners, investors and in-house finance teams. Recently, I have also gained increasing interest in the taxation of cryptocurrency.
