About Us

Since 1990, the founding Partners, Ed Chan and David Naylor, have been passionate about helping clients to grow and protect their wealth. This same unbridled passion and commitment is ongoing today, with all Chan & Naylor Partners across Australia (See: Meet the Partners)

Chan & Naylor is a national property, business tax accounting and wealth advisory group – with more than a dozen offices in major capital cities situated in NSW, VIC, QLD, and WA.

Over the years, our Partners’ passion for property investing, and business enterprise, has led to the development of specialised services and products that would continuously benefit like-minded clients with an interest in property or business.

At Chan & Naylor, we’re passionate about property. But we don’t sell any. We neither recommend any specific properties, nor align ourselves to any developments or projects.

One clear example of our expertise in property that has benefited many of our property investor clients, has been the creation of the Chan & Naylor Property Investor Trust® (PIT®) which was subsequently approved by the ATO in relation to negative gearing tax deductions. This unique trust deed was among the first property specific investment trusts and the only property investment trust given a Product Ruling by the Australian Taxation Office (ATO) allowing investors to have certainty of interest tax deductibility on negatively geared properties, if used in accordance with the approved ATO Product Ruling in favour of our Property Investor Trust®.
