Thinking of setting up a company overseas in United States, United Kingdom or another overseas country?

We often receive inquiries from founders of Australian Start Ups about how to best set up a company overseas and their tax implications. Setting up a business overseas can be complicated and the relationship of at least two tax systems requires expert advice. At Standard Ledger we can help you with the Australian interplay with various overseas countries.

    Fixed Fee proposals

  • Includes
      We provide fixed fee proposals wherever possible to make it easier for budgeting purposes for our clients. Rates charged by us reflect the seniority, expertise and experience of the persons involved, as well as factors such as the time frame in which this work is to be carried out.

*All prices include GST

Tax returns are billed (100%) on final preparation of the tax return, charged when we send you the final tax return for your (electronic) signing, as set out in our Terms and Conditions.  For more information on our philosophy on this in recognising the work undertaken see http://standardledger.co/transparency/

Pricing is based on expected standard circumstances.
Additional work for non-standard returns will be billed at $150 incl GST per hour.
Non-standard work will only commence once we’ve agreed a fee estimate with you.
Most startup company returns are going to be fairly standard but examples of non-standard work includes:
1. Earn out agreements.
2. Hire purchase or Lease agreements.
3. Multiple assets with different tax depreciation rates that you can’t pool together.
4. Division 7A Loan agreements.
5. FX calculations (i.e. foreign currency accounts).
