The Australian taxation system is vast and complex. It has also evolved over many decades of case law and the distinction between tax deductible and non-tax deductible is often imprecise. The Tax Office (ATO) provides guidance and assistance to taxpayers seeking help with their tax affairs, but the ATO is essentially there to collect tax and as much of it as possible. Their advice is oriented to guide you as to how to pay tax and not necessarily to assist you to understand how to not pay tax.
Our role is to assist our clients to achieve a taxation outcome that is correct at law.The opinions of the ATO are not always correct at law and they are not always explained in a manner likely to help a taxpayer achieve certainty about their tax affairs.
We apply a strategic and legal mindset to taxation so as to ensure our clients have the peace of mind that they are paying the correct taxation.
We can provide you with comprehensive advice on tax deductions to assist you to gain a better understanding of the expenses that are allow to be claimed as deductions. We can also assist you to find alternatives strategies to minimise your tax liabilities.
We provide a vast array of tax deductions services which broadly fall into the following categories:
- Business Expenses
- Employment Expenses
- Investment Expenses
Businesses are complex and diverse and so is the taxation planning and strategic decisions that need to be made to ensure the correct tax is imposed.
