Tax Planning, Compliance & Advice

Home » Accounting » Tax Planning, Compliance and Advice

Australia’s taxation system is complex. Businesses and individuals each need timely solutions to meeting their tax obligations and ensuring all options to lower your tax liability are explored.

Greenhalgh Pickard provides expert advice that covers all areas from tax compliance through to tax planning, including on matters relating to income tax, capital gains tax (CGT), fringe benefits tax (FBT) or goods and services tax (GST).

For businesses in particular, tax compliance and reporting regulations can be onerous and time-consuming, creating a significant burden on resources. Yet avoiding non-compliance and being proactive about tax planning, including cash-flow planning and development of tax minimisation strategies, can save significant amounts of money.

This not only helps to avoid unwelcome end-of-financial-year surprises but ensure you achieve the best possible outcome.

Greenhalgh Pickard’s accounting team brings a personal and proactive approach to tax planning and advice. This can also extend to provision of expert consulting services, as well as meeting your compliance requirements.

Andrew Patrick is one of the accountants within the team who is vastly experienced in the field of tax planning, compliance and advice.

Income tax, CGT and FBT compliance considerations

When looking at income tax you need to consider the implications of other taxes that are often overlooked, such as CGT.

A capital gain is not simply a gain; there are 52 different types, each with different characteristics and ramifications. CGT becomes complex once you start including exemptions, dates and monetary limits.

FBT is also often overlooked but is a simple concept – your employer provides a benefit and pays tax. Employers often make many costly mistakes determining this, however.
