For most clients the interview through to lodgement will only take only about 30 minutes to complete. The tax office will normally processes returns within 14 days of lodgement. For more complicated situations a return may not be completed immediately. In these situations, a copy for your records, original return to sign, return paid envelope and a clear instruction letter summarising your refund and where to sign, is posted out to you within a few days.
Fees vary for tax returns depending upon the complexity and the type of tax return required.
We have been operating since 1988 and we are committed to providing you with a high quality, personal service. Clients are always pleased with our fast, professional service and Immediate Lodgement Service. We offer free tax advice all year round to make your life even easier.
In a nutshell, here are the services we provide:
We cater for clients that need help with their personal tax returns and provide advice with all taxation and related matters. Most of our Business clients are small businesses, operating in a variety of service, farming, professional, manufacturing or trade related industries. The type of business structure most commonly used range from sole trader, partnership, trust to company. Many of our clients are based locally; however we cater for busy clients who prefer to deal via the internet, phone or by mail. Distance is not really an issue today.
Being in small business does not have to be confusing. Providing financial reports in a simple, readily understood layout is just better design and understanding of what the average small business operator needs. Advice can be provided in a clear and 'jargon free' way which all means you get 'advice you can understand'.
Sometimes clients get late with lodging returns and often we get clients with multiple years of tax returns outstanding. This is not a problem. We have lodged 22 years returns for one very late client. The client got a large refund and had been worrying for many years needlessly.
If you have over due returns, then just contact us immediately. Generally a wage earner has enough tax withheld by the employer to cover the tax owing. If you are in a refund situation, then the tax office may not impose late fines. If you do end up owing money, then the faster you have the returns processed the sooner we can help you. In some cases we can work with the tax office to reduce or eliminate fines or interest. We can even help work out a repayment plan with the tax office if that was to be needed.
Congratulations. There are many steps to put in place before you begin your new business. Get advice early, as it is often difficult to put some things in place after certain events have occurred.
