Taxation is a specialist area.
In recent times the ATO has sought to simplify taxation. As a result, taxation legislation has increased dramatically – both in size and complexity. Increased reporting requirements, specific complexities and an massive increase in non-compliance detection and the associated levying of penalties means that getting it right has never been so important.
At Hinterland Accounting, we are well equipped to make sure that the effects of an ever-changing and complicated tax legislation is taken into consideration at every opportunity during the review of your tax affairs – from structuring, to annual tax planning and culminating in making sure you don’t pay any more tax than you have to.
We provide comprehensive advice and services encompassing the following:
Income Tax Returns for all entities and individuals
GST and BAS preparation and advice
Taxation Advice (CGT, GST, Other)
With direct access to Australian Securities & Investments Commission (ASIC), the record keeping burden of company secretarial compliance can be minimised and this reduces the possibility of incurring penalties for late lodgement of notifiable changes.
Annual Statements of Particulars can be easily managed and allow you to focus on developing your business.
If you are considering starting a new business, diversifying an existing one or providing for your retirement, it may be appropriate for you to consider the purchase of a company, trust or superannuation fund. In association with reputable financial planners and other service providers, this can be arranged easily for you and in most cases, have the relevant documentation by the following business day. Prices for these services are subject to change and you are most welcome to discuss the appropriateness of such a purchase and the current cost.
To help ensure that your Self Managed Superannuation Fund (SMSF) is complying with all legislative requirements, annual audits are conducted by external auditors. This is to provide you peace of mind by reinforcing objectivity and independence.
Andrea is also partners with QuickBooks, Xero, Sage One, MYOB and several other software providers to provide cloud based accounting solutions for managment of record keeping, payroll and compliance reporting.
In a typical accounting firm, the most experienced and commercially capable individuals are the ones who often meet at your first appointment, but never have access to again. You are passed from junior or trainee accountant from year to year as they leave to further their careers.
Hinterland Accounting is different. As we are a small boutique firm, with a limit on client numbers, you have access to the Accountant who prepares your financial statements, knows your unique circumstances, is familiar with your banking and business situation, and is available and has the TIME to provide that help.
At Hinterland Accounting, the overall goal is to assist our clients to achieve their business and personal goals. We are focused in that desire. To achieve your goals, we provide the following services:
Preparation of Financial Statements
Budget Preparation and Monitoring
Business Benchmarking and performance analysis
Business Development Programs
Financial Planning provides advice on a broad range of issues affecting the way you live today, and the way you want to live tomorrow. That is the core element in any financial planning discussion.
The longer you delay your financial planning, the harder it can be to achieve your long-term goals. So don’t put it off. You should talk to your advisor when:
• You want a strategy to achieve your financial goals.
• Your personal circumstances have changed, or are about to change i.e. marriage, children, receiving an inheritance or buying a home.
• You want to know how much you will need for retirement to support the life that you currently enjoy.
• You’ve been thinking about investing long-term but you don’t have the time or resources.
• You’ve insured your home, car and health, but haven’t insured your income.
• Your existing life insurance cover isn’t enough to protect your family.
• It’s time to capitalise on investment opportunities and review your current investments.
Specifically, we can assist in providing you with advice on retirement planning, negative gearing, investment, life insurance and income protection, the issues surrounding redundancy and changing jobs as well as estate planning.
We have built relationships with a number of Financial Planners and Insurance Brokers and are happy to refer you to one who is best positioned to meet your individual needs.
