We’re paying all of our attention to Medical Professionals
You’ll notice we’ve made some big changes around here. We’re saying goodbye to Gallati Professional Services and coming back stronger as Cerebral Tax.
GPS has served us well over the past 5 years. It’s our family name. It means something personal to us. But we decided to rebrand because we want this business to mean something personal to you.
Our logo is a nod to the brain, (as you can probably tell) and we took the name Cerebral from Cerebral thinking. To call someone a cerebral thinker, is to say that they make decisions based on intelligence and careful thinking, rather than emotions.
You could say that Cerebral thinking is how Gallati Professional Services started in the first place.
It’s the next chapter in our story, but we’re going back to our roots
To show you how we got here, it’s important to mention what came before.
We were moved to work exclusively with Physicians because we know what they’re going through on a day to day basis, at work and at home. We share the same narrative.
I have been through (and am still going through) the many financial stages and scenarios a physician’s family typically goes through! I grew up in a family of them, and then I married one. I met my husband the second week of college before he even decided to go into medicine, and by the time we got married, he was incredibly busy with med school.
With my background in accounting, it was natural for me to take on the family finances. Getting deep into our own finances, I got to experience first-hand the painful financial position in which physicians find themselves.
Right out of Med school, the first three months of my husband’s paycheck were going straight to the IRS. Hours of hard work were lost. Money that we intended to save for our future, lost.
I was emotionally invested in our outcome, but used cerebral thinking to find the best hard-hitting tax strategies to save our income and build our wealth.
We hear these same stories all the time from our clients. Stories of financial struggle all through the journey:
The shock of earning nothing in residency to earning hundreds of thousands as an attending and not knowing what to do with it.
The fear of getting a letter from the IRS.
The desire to open a private practice in a healthcare environment that’s making it more and more difficult to go out on your own.
The worry about paying off student loan debt and saving for your kids college tuition, not to mention your pension.
It’s time to turn the page.
We’re interested in tax planning that heals, not hurts.
As a medical professional, you’re preyed upon so much by insurance agents and financial advisors that it’s hard to trust anyone who says they’re a financial expert.
We get that. We’re big on trust too, because we’ve been targeted in exactly the same way in the past. That experience drives what we do. You need someone who will have your back. Who’ll protect your income. Someone who is personally invested in your growth and your future.
In a sense, that made creating our values easy. Trust is vitally important to us, and so is:
Care: Our advice and support is always rooted in a desire to make your life better
Empathy: We say never judge a person before you’ve walked a mile in their scrubs. We’ve been through what you’re going through, and we always approach a solution with your best interests at heart.
Conviction: Our virtual office is always open. When you’re on call, when you’re drinking that 4th cup of coffee at 2am. Day or night, you can rely on us.
Actions speak louder than words.
Our rebrand is really all about you. In truth, you’re the brains behind the whole operation. And we could talk about that all day.
But actions speak louder than words.
Now that you know why we do what we do, go and take a better look at what we can do for you.
Just like our family situation, I’m emotionally invested in making your life better, but as cerebral thinkers, we’re here to pay careful attention to:
Tax Planning - We proactively work with you to create a strategic plan you can apply throughout the year, to minimise your tax obligations and save you thousands in the long run.
Tax Preparation - So that you can take care of your patients while we take care of your Personal tax, Corporate tax and Estate trust obligations and ensure no mistakes.
Tax Representation - So that you have full support from a back-up team if you do receive a letter from the IRS.
Take a look at our Tax Maintenance Packages if you want to build your wealth and let the tax experts take care of the nitty gritty details.
But enough about us. We want to hear about you.
