The Toolbox

Toolbox Sessions are a quick, casual and interactive covering a bunch of different topics about how to get your financial sh!t sorted whether in business or personally.  Get a small group of business owners together for a few drinks and work with TaxChic personally to build your financial know-how.

The Business

Vanessa Mendes owns and manages HM Business Partners, an integrated wealth practice specialising in all things finance related.  Her Accounting Practice provides unbiased advice on tax, financial and self-managed superannuation as well as lending and in-house property management.

The Taxchic

Vanessa is not like any other Accountant or Financial Adviser you’ve probably worked with before - she gets people, she asks the tough question, she thinks outside the box and she’s great at transforming businesses and personal finances to help you keep more of your hard-earned cash.


As a finance professional who just gets people, Vanessa can make even the most complex strategy seem simple!  She is an experienced strategist and humble change agent who loves to introduce practical tools that are easy to implement, ultimately saving you time so you can get back to the important things that matter to you. 

Working with businesses and individuals for years in coaching and mentoring roles, Vanessa loves challenging her clients and taking you out of your comfort zone as she believes this is where the real personal growth happens.  To transform your financial affairs or to give them a good overhaul takes courage and Vanessa is here to support and guide you through that often unnerving journey.

Thank you so much! I can't tell you how lucky I feel to have you. It terrifies me to think of where I would be without you and your teams support!

MacIntyre Health - World Class Diabetes Care

I was referred to Vanessa a number of years ago looking to tidy up our financial affairs and to take our Accounting away from a big Gold Coast Accountant who wasn’t doing us any favours.  When I found Vanessa I got far more than I bargained for as she asks the tough questions and really calls us out on the real money issues at hand allowing us to make the greatest gains. 

When Vanessa first came on the scene, our bookkeeping was terrible for my wife’s company and our understanding wasn’t great either; we were making plenty of money but not using it wisely.  With great patience and persistence, Vanessa has made a very stressful part of lives completely trouble free.  The advice she has provided over the years has given us valuable time back to spend with our son, helped us re-structure investments, given us a plan to pay off our home in only a few more years, helped us save a heap of tax, given us great tools to manage our money and a plan for our retirement through our SMSF.

I have known and worked with Vanessa for a number of years. To put it simply, she gets people. She takes the time to get to know her clients and their needs and takes a lot of pride in doing a job well and thoroughly. If you want someone who will work with you on planning a solid future with a range of financial services, you would be hard pressed to find someone as down to earth and earnest
