Exact Communications Pty Ltd has been providing services in Sydney since 1999. We provide design, web development and print services for businesses.

Web Development
We produce web sites that are both up-to-date and functional in design and in their technical aspects. We create menu systems that work well for your particular design and application. All our web sites are coded such that they can be updated by yourselves if neccessary. During the development you are able to view a number of drafts and all final functions are fully tested to ensure that the site functions well once launched.

Any design task would be tailored to suite your particular communication objectives and we would make sure that all colours and corporate identities are incorporated.

We have quality print solutions for your lithographic (standard printing) needs. Quotations can be supplied fairly quickly and without obligation. All printing and paper stocks are of the highest standards.

Examples of some of the clients we have helped;

Accumulators of Wealth
Singles or couples who need to increase long term savings while at the same time protect their income and family assets. We ensure that super and non super strategies, such as shares, property & managed funds, are considered as well as checking the correct ownership of assets for tax planning and reducing potential liabilities. In terms of superannuation we can advise on most types of funds including Self Managed Super Funds.

Pre-Retirement Planning
Clients who are looking at maximising their financial position prior to reducing or ceasing working hours. Strategies such as Transition to Retirement may be used to tax effectively boost super savings by thousands of dollars.

Retirement Income
People no longer working need to replace their employment income with a steady tax effective alternative. By structuring an income producing portfolio in line with a client's objectives we can provide peace of mind so they can enjoy their retirement years. We also try to ensure assets are passed on to beneficiaries in the most tax efficient way possible via family succession planning.
