For small businesses, if your are not on a tax agent listing, then your due date is the 28th of February. If you have prior late lodgements, then your due date is the 31st of October. If you are on a tax agent listing, your due date can be as late as the 15th of May.
All of these dates are subject to change by the ATO and should be used as a guideline only. Please contact our office to confirm your personal circumstances.
Not at all. Whilst most clients prefer a face to face interview, we can also service clients tax affairs via email and phone. We also have a secure client portal which allows our clients to electronically sign documents, streamlining the lodgement process.
If you would like to make an appointment to come in, please don't hesitate to email or call on the contact details in the Contact Us page.
Our secure client portal allows us to upload our clients tax documents so they can be accessed whenever the client needs them. It also allows the client to electronically sign the documents before lodgement, streamlining the lodgement process and cutting down on the paperwork required.
Our client portal is activated with an individual email address and password and can be accessed from any device that has an internet connection.
It’s probably simpler than you think. You don’t even need to tell your current accountant that you are changing if you like – we can do that for you as well as liaise with them to obtain any corporate registers etc.
We are happy to take our fees from your refund. Otherwise we can send you a bill for our services which can easily be paid by credit card or bank account online. There’s no need to pay at the interview unless you want to.
We certainly can. We will look at your situation and recommend a software package which does what you need it to do at the best price. There’s no point paying for extra functions that you will never need. We are Xero and MYOB partners and can set you on new software as well as give you initial training on how to use it. We can also be your helpdesk if you get stuck and don’t know how to do something.
No problem. We have some clients who want us to prepare all their BASs and other clients who are happy to prepare them themselves and only use us for tax services and advice. It’s really up to you to decide the level of service you want from us.
