Helping Your Business
Our flexible service enables businesses to access us at every stage of their evolution. If you’re a new business, we can make sure you’ve got the correct paperwork and processes in place to meet your legal obligations with respect to reporting and tax returns.
For an established business, we can not only prepare all the information that the ATO requires but also advise on superannuation, asset acquisition and disposal, tax planning and any sector-specific tax issues that relate to your business.
Being a sole trader means that an individual, rather than a company, is responsible for collating and submitting tax information correctly. We understand that for many sole traders this can be a challenge, so it’s best to contact the professionals. We can help!
Not only can we assist with every aspect of record-keeping and financial reporting, but we also offer low-cost accountancy support packages that are ideal for sole traders and business start-ups.
If and when you feel the time is right to change status from sole trader to a company or trust set-up, we can advise and assist you throughout the transition process.
