ABOUT US

 
 

Our journey began in 1992 when our Founder, John Marcarian, founded his own practice in Sydney.

Focusing on private clients and their globally mobile aspirations, CST quickly became a specialist in advising clients on tax matters when moving abroad.

THE ROAD TO SINGAPORE

Our Singapore office opened in 2004, initially providing services to expats moving to Singapore or establishing a business in Singapore from Australia.

Since then we have grown our international presence with an office in Los Angeles opening in 2010 and, most recently, an office in London which opened in 2020.

Today, we provide tax and accounting services to companies seeking to establish a presence in Singapore from around the world. Our focus is on managing the tax affairs of global founders moving to Singapore to establish or expand their business.

Our international tax expertise enables our clients to enter Singapore, and expand beyond, with confidence.

In recent years, we have grown our Digital Asset Business tax and accounting capability and formed a team of professionals that deeply understand the digital asset space.
