head-start: partner and dependant


You’re on your way to landing in one of the most beautiful and friendly countries on earth! Take the first step towards your new life in Australia by becoming a Head-Start member and be secure in the knowledge that you are going to arrive in style with VIP treatment!

hanson|porter|curzon are proud to offer as part of our Head-Start series of services, a comprehensive Package to assist Partners and Dependants of new arrivals.

We take the hassle out of arriving in a new country and make life easy for you by providing you with your essential Australian identity documents and key tools so you can accelerate through the administrative burden and get out and experience Australia.

Arriving in a new country without local knowledge can be a daunting prospect, even if you are a seasoned traveler. It’s the little things that can help make the first few weeks a pain-free and exciting experience, rather than the confusing and tiresome process it is for most.

Often Partners and dependants can be overlooked when it comes to establishing communication, banking, transport and healthcare registrations and services. Most of the time it’s all about the income earner; what do they need to get ready for work, find employment and so on.

As a Partner or Dependant of a newly arrived student, professional or entrepreneur, it’s not always necessary to double up on all the information and administration requirements – you just need the essentials.
Cameron Bodley, Director

It is exactly for this reason that hanson|porter|curzon have developed the Head-Start Partner and Dependant service to assist the Partner or Dependents to obtain the same level of care and service in establishing their key Australian identity documents and services.

As a registered member of the Institute of Chartered Accountants in Australia, the Tax Practitioners Board and the Australian Securities and Investment Commission, you can feel secure in knowing that your affairs are being professionally cared for.
