M C Mars is a Chartered Quantity Surveyor with over 20 years professional experience on major construction projects and has specialised in Australian property tax allowances for the last 16 years.
In the UK I was responsible for the cost planning and cost control of projects for a wide diversity of clients such as the University of Edinburgh, Royal Bank of Scotland, various Health Services, City Councils and Housing Associations.
I am a fully qualified member of the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) which is the only surveying institution recognised worldwide and have been a Registered Tax Agent since 2010.
I migrated from Scotland to Australia in 2000 and immediately obtained employment as a Senior Quantity Surveyor in the property tax department of Napier and Blakeley who were the first providers of depreciation schedules and advice in the Australian market in 1985.
During that time I worked on numerous projects throughout Australia including:
Cutters Landing, New Farm QLD
Waterline, Bulimba QLD
212 on Margaret, Brisbane QLD
Macarthur Chambers, Brisbane QLD
Tribeca, East Melbourne VIC
Bayview Apartments, Port Melbourne VIC
Pacific Place, Chatswood NSW
Ikon, Potts Point NSW
Pacific International Suites, Perth WA
I worked on commissions for developers including Mirvac, FKP and Multiplex as well as individual investors.
I moved from Brisbane to Hobart in 2006 to enjoy the Tasmanian lifestyle and start up the challenge of running my own business specialising in Tax Depreciation. I have since prepared schedules for local, interstate and overseas investors for residential and commercial properties all over Tasmania including a number of dairy farms. I have also prepared several schedules for properties in the UK and New Zealand owned by Australian investors.
