Making Taxes Work for Your Business [Hub CS 29Aug]

Thu August 29, 2019 12:30 pm - 1:30 pm


About This Workshop

Taxes are not all bad … seriously! But only with the right planning. Come along as we dive into how you can really make taxes work for your business.

This workshop will help you understand tax-effective decisions for your business, including how to pay yourself, planning for dividends and a few key tax tools like the instant asset write off.

We’ll also run through the R&D tax incentive. We work with many startups to claim up to 43.5% cash back on their research. And it’s not just for software startups – it can apply to any business doing technical research so you should be aware of it too.

Finally, if you’re an early stage business looking to raise investment, we’ll run through what it means to be an ESIC (early stage innovation company) and the tax breaks that investors can get as a result (which make your business more appealing).

You’ll receive slides plus a tax and dividend calculator.

AND don’t miss the opportunity to talk to Remco about your business too. He’s running free private sessions during the event series at Hub Collins Street. Pre-book in here and if you can’t get a spot, you can always book a separate call with him instead.


This event is part of Standard Ledger’s free Expert-in-Residence program at Hub Melbourne this winter.
