"Our experience with APM was very easy! Mark provided a very good briefing & was clear on the requirements that he needed from our Business to complete his review. His post-work follow-up was also thorough & highlighted opportunities & risks available to our business. I was satisfied with the process undertaken by APM, as they were very clear about the way they worked & how much effort or impact it would have on our Business. This was a very transparent process which allowed me to provide timely communication & updates to my Senior Leaders. Mark is a very experienced Consultant who met all agreed timeframes & provided updates in a timely fashion. I could not ask for more!"

"It is true that the end result has greatly benefited our group of companies: having received large sums of premium refunds. What's more important though is how the end result was achieved: By methodical analysis of the big picture, by being diligent & making us aware that the end result is not guaranteed, by providing professional service and attending to every query raised by us, by taking the risk to move between agents and by simplifying the complex legislation of Worksafe."
"I can’t recommend APM more highly and would say that it’s been an absolute pleasure working with Mark."
"We will definitely be using your services in the future."
Iram Sarig Financial Controller
"Just a quick note to acknowledge your work in securing us a significant refund. When first approached we were naturally a little sceptical as a lot of people make promises but do not deliver. However the timing was right as we were looking to validate our understanding & process in completing our returns. We therefore took the chance in providing you with an opportunity. From the outset we found your manner very calm & professional. You were available by phone or in person whenever needed throughout the project. Although we were happy to pay as returns were progressed & refunds received you elected to wait until the project was fully completed before submitting your invoice. Your turnaround time was in line with your forecast expectation thus adding to our confidence in your knowledge & ability. We have no hesitation in recommending you to other organisations that have similar needs to our own. Thank you once again!"

"We engaged Mark of APM Solutions to review our WorkCover premiums. To our delight, Mark was a true professional to deal with & clearly an expert in his field. From the initial meeting through to completion of the review, Mark was always someone we knew we could trust & rely on. For a variety of reasons, it makes absolute sense to seek expert advice when it comes to WorkCover premiums...and I would highly recommend the services of Mark & APM Solutions."
Joe Pennisi Human Resources Manager
VICSEG New Futures
“We were contacted by APM Solutions & offered their Policy Review service. The outcome of the review was very satisfying. We were able to obtain a premium refund from our insurer plus learn important information that will assist us with the completion of future rateable remuneration forms. I would definitely recommend this service. The turnaround was quick, the customer service was excellent & the staff easy to deal with. Thank you for your service."
Tony Callaghan Accountant
“I would recommend APM Solutions to other employers. They were professional & very easy to deal with. They were extremely helpful & answered any questions I had. My knowledge of the rateable remuneration calculation has increased significantly which is an added bonus to the large premium refund APM obtained for us."

“Review process was clear & concise. Turnaround time was nothing short of miraculous when compared to our other dealings with WorkCover.”
Gordon Shaw Finance Manager
Maw Civil P/L
“I thought that the service provided to us by APM Solutions was very valuable. With their expertise they managed to secure a premium refund, so I was very appreciative that they had the skills & knew exactly where to look. Their service was prompt, giving us notification before their appointment of what documents they would require to conduct the review – the FBT tax return was the clincher for us. The no win – no fee schedule left me in no doubt that it would not be a wasted exercise. I would recommend your service to any of the innumerable businesses that we are involved with. More people should be aware of your service.”
Amanda J Newton Office Manager
“Thank you for meeting with me & helping me get a better understanding of the WorkCover premiums & processes. Your professionalism was exceptional & I had the confidence to ask you questions that were within your ability to answer in a manner I could understand. The fact that we received a refund so quickly has proven that your services will be of great importance to our company heading into the future. Thank you once again & I will be contacting you when the annual reconciliation is due."
Efthemia Konstantinidis Office Manager
“I wanted to thank you for all your hard work & the effective review of our WorkCover Policy. I will most certainly be using APM Solutions in the future for advice regarding our WorkCover premium. The whole process was very successful & I got the results I was looking for. Customer service was great & I felt very satisfied with both the professional & personalized service that was received. Thank you all!”

“APM Solutions contacted us & explained their unique service. We opted to utilise the service, believing that we had nothing to lose. Throughout the process, APM was professional in all their contacts & dealings. APM attended our workplace to discuss the review process & to map out the information required. Upon completion of the review, we were able to access a sizable refund. We now have a much clearer understanding of our requirements & will surely benefit in the future from applying the knowledge gained courtesy of the review process.”
Tony Goodman HR Administrator & Payroll Officer
Centacare, Catholic Diocese of Ballarat Inc
“APM Solutions provided us with an extremely efficient and detailed review of our Workcover Premium. I found Mark to be customer focussed, reliable and thorough when conducting his review. Mark asked for information as required and then independently prepared the submission for Housing Choices. He diligently followed up the case with the Insurer & Worksafe, ultimately achieving an excellent result for our organisation. I would not hesitate to recommend Mark’s service to other clients."
Kate Forer HR Manager

“We found Mark Attard a pleasure to deal with. Mark always dealt with our inquiries in a prompt & professional manner. Mark’s knowledge of the WorkCover system & the reports and submissions presented to us by him gave us confidence that he could successfully pursue his recommendations. The turnaround time was protracted due to the uncooperative nature of our Insurer, but in the end Mark’s persistence & determination saw the desired result get achieved. I would recommend APM Solutions & their WorkCover Review service to any organisation that holds a WorkCover Policy."
Rob Spalding IT Officer
Providing All Living Supports (PALS) Inc
“We were extremely pleased with the WorkCover Premium Review completed by APM Solutions & were delighted with the final result. The review process was professionally conducted and given the scope of the project, we consider the turnaround time of four months to be reasonable. Mark Attard’s work was of an excellent standard. He was always available, ready to assist & very clear with requests for documentation. On the basis of our experience, I would be pleased to recommend APM Solutions to future clients."
Gigi Awad Finance Manager
Heidelberg Training & Resource Centre Inc
"We were contacted by APM Solutions & agreed to try their review service. Their fee structure of ‘nothing gained - no cost’ appealed most to our organisation. The review process was very satisfying, as not only did it result in a sizable refund, but it gave us the opportunity to review our processes & identified areas that needed to be tightened up. The review turnaround time was excellent & there was little intrusion on my work time due to the minimal requirements on my end. Brilliant, thank you so much!"
Katrina Thurston Chief Financial Officer
Samarinda Aged Services
“I found Mark to be well equipped to undertake a review of our WorkCover Policy. He was very knowledgeable about WorkCover & about what our type of organisation (not for profit) could do differently to reduce our WorkCover premium. Mark guided us through the review process, explaining each step along the way, assisting us with preparation of documentation to support our case for changes & effectively gave us the confidence that he knew exactly what he was doing in his dealings with our Insurer & Worksafe. Our Board was absolutely thrilled with the significant refund achieved as a result of the APM review & the further savings that will occur as a result of the improvement to our internal processes."
Dimi Patitsas Corporate Services Manager
Yarra Community Housing
“We are very appreciative of the service offered by APM Solutions. I requested the review service as I felt that we had nothing to lose by having a review. The service provided was prompt & efficient & I couldn’t believe the fast turnaround with regard to the review being completed & a refund being obtained. I have recommended APM Solutions to a number of other disability organisations in this region with the belief that they will also benefit from this review service. The review provided was also educational, providing me with further knowledge on accessible exemptions. Thank you for the great service & support!"
Janice Harris Chief Executive Officer
Cooinda Terang Inc
“We decided that we had nothing to lose but everything to gain from having our WorkCover premium payments reviewed. The consultation process with your analyst was prompt & because the initial reporting requirements were listed in detail by APM, the review process required minimal preparation from us. Knowing that any submission made by APM required Worksafe approval, we were confident that the process was a legitimate claim for overpayment, rather than obtaining a refund through a loophole. The outcome was a timely refund for the Lighthouse Foundation & the refund was processed by Worksafe quickly over the Christmas period. In our view the main benefits of the review service was the knowledge that APM had thoroughly reviewed our WorkCover Policy & that they were able to identify & obtain a refund on an overpayment made 3 years ago. I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending your services to other not-for-profit organisations."
Jenny Lawlor Finance Manager
“We were contacted by APM Solutions enquiring whether we were interested in a Workcover Premium Review. After researching APM and reading other testimonials, we decided to pursue their services. Mark reviewed our industry classification and determined a more appropriate category. A very strong submission for our insurer was prepared by APM after they obtained a good understanding of the work performed by our Company. His detailed submission was successful and our Company obtained a very, very substantial refund from Workcover due to our reclassification. We found Mark and his team to be very professional, knowledgeable and very successful. We recommend APM Solutions and thank them very much for their professionalism, expertise and great customer service."
Janet Phillips Company Secretary

"I just want to share a quick note to let people know of the great service we received from APM Solutions. From a simple contact to a fantastic outcome, Mark made it really simple & easy for us. Always friendly & following up when needed it was a great experience. I have no hesitation in recommending APM Solutions to you."
