Tax Advisory Services

Looking for strategies you should implement to minimise that large year-end tax bill?

If so, then it is important that you speak to us about how tax planning can be used as an essential tool in addressing the ongoing issues that can impact your overall tax position.

We can provide tax advice on a large range of topics.

Some examples of the areas we have advised clients on are as follows:

        • Use of the small business capital gains tax concessions to eliminate or reduce the capital gain on the sale of a business.
        • Structuring the payment of dividends over a number of years from a private company to its shareholders in the most tax effective manner.
        • Advice on maximising superannuation contributions through salary sacrifice and personal contributions to benefit from the concessional tax rate in a superannuation fund.
        • Advice on the most appropriate structure or entity to commence or restructure a business. We have also provided similar advice for clients who hold investments. The structure or entity in question will depend on each client’s particular circumstances, but has in the past included the use of companies, unit trusts, family trusts and partnerships.

We also offer clients the opportunity to discuss any year end planning issues prior to 30 June each year.
