The Benefits Of Having Accountants

We all have a good sense of the time required to keep our books in order. Those that are not particularly geared toward completing this task may be prone to putting it on the long finger. However, whether you enjoy the process or not, having financial data that is up-to-date is essential to running a business, no matter what size or in which industry.

As such, retaining the services of business accountants in Sunshine Coast is a must for those that not only want to save time but also for those that appreciate that it could prove to be a hugely beneficial investment that can save a lot of money. Unless you have training and education and experience working with tax, there is a strong chance that some of the benefits and deductions that you could claim are passing you by.

What’s more, given the seasonal nature of many industries, having the advice of an objective third party could illustrate where a strain is felt in terms of cash flow, and this could enable you to plan strategically in terms of acquiring new assets or investing in upgrades to your service.

Nobody wants to face an audit, but without professionals overseeing the submission of your tax returns, a series of mistakes could place your business under the spotlight and necessitate this situation. This may be the prompt that some require to seek assistance, but we believe that being proactive pays, and so encourage those that want to keep life simple and compliant to get in touch sooner rather than later.

How does your pricing work?

All our pricing is fixed, agreed in advance and paid via direct debit. And for those that qualify we offer a 12 month payment plan at no extra cost where we spread the costs of the year’s services over 12 equal instalments.

Each year we will send you a new proposal with updated pricing and schedule of services.

Should you require additional services in the period we will provide you with a proposal for those services before we do any work. That way you are always in control.

What happens after we enquire?

After you submit an enquiry we will organise a time to for a free video meeting or phone call at a time suitable for us both. This meeting can go up to 30 minutes long and is a chance for us both to get to know each other, find out what you are looking for and whether we are a good fit for each other.

If we both agree that we can work well together and deliver you the outcomes you are looking for, we will provide you with a proposal for our services which will outline the services, costs involved and our terms and conditions. Once that is accepted there are some compliance requirements we need to satisfy such as ID verification and tax agent linking on the business portal. But we will outline all that in detail once that time comes.

Do you do individual tax returns?

We only do individual tax returns for those individuals who are part of a business group (e.g the shareholders/directors) we do the accounting for, and for those with substantial investments and investment structures such as family trusts or self-managed super funds.

How do you work with clients?

We work with our clients through a combination of email, phone, video and if the case requires it, face to face meetings.
