All prices exclude GST

We charge for tax return work when we send you the final return for your electronic signing. This is explained in our Terms and Conditions, and you can also read more about our fair and transparent charging philosophy here.

Our pricing is based on expected standard circumstances. We charge additional work for non-standard returns. Don’t worry, we would always talk with you about this before starting any ‘non-standard’ work. And anyway, most startup company tax returns are fairly standard. Examples of non-standard stuff includes: earn out agreements, hire purchase or lease agreements, multiple assets with different tax depreciation rates that you can’t pool together, Division 7A loan agreements and FX calculations (i.e. foreign currency accounts).

Company (trading)

Tax laws are complex, and tax planning activities are attracting increasing attention from government regulators. This is not the kind of attention any company, least of all a startup, needs.

We can help you prepare statutory accounts for your company, and complete and lodge your company tax return annually with the ATO. We’ll take care of everything the ATO requires and let you know about the company tax payment in plenty of time.

We’ll also estimate what any tax bills are going to be over the next 12 months so you can plan your finances in advance. Handy.

Trust

Trusts are required to lodge annual tax returns with the ATO. We can take care of everything involved in preparing your Trust’s tax return, including tax planning, preparing beneficiary statements, and trustee minutes.

Individual

Yes of course we can take care of your personal tax return.

If you’re operating as a freelancer/sole trader, you’re also classed as a business owner so you need to include this in your personal tax return to the ATO. We can prepare the additional business schedule that needs to be included in your return.

We’ll also estimate what any tax bills are going to be over the next 12 months so you can plan your finances in advance. Did someone say handy?

Advisory

Additional Service

We provide fixed fee proposals wherever possible to make it easier for you to budget. Our rates reflect our team members’ seniority, expertise and experience, plus other factors like timing. Here are some examples of the tax advisory work that we do:

International
If you are an Australian organisation looking to expand in the United Kingdom, we’ll help manage your global tax obligations.

We provide tax advice on establishing overseas operations and on the tax implications of entering a foreign market. We also deal with all the overseas tax aspects of a client’s business, including obtaining a more tax efficient approach.

Succession planning
We can help you to:

  • Restructure your business for succession, which could include family transfer, trade sale or IPO
  • Plan effectively for your retirement and optimise the use of superannuation
  • Develop a succession plan for transitioning your business or personal structures to the next generation
  • Prepare an effective state plan to ensure the right assets end up in the right hands, at the right time
