Choose an accountant

Accountants are specialist advisors that will provide you with accounting and tax advice. The right person will save you time and money year after year and it is in your best interest to have an experienced person helping you with your finances.

Choose a registered tax agent

You should use us as your registered tax agent to prepare and lodge your tax
return. Registered tax agents are the only people
allowed to charge a fee to prepare and lodge tax returns.

Tax
agents must be registered with the Tax Practitioners Board (TPB).

Using a
registered agent will provide you with consumer protection as the TPB ensures
they:

  • meet and maintain the required standard or qualifications and experience
  • comply with the Code of Professional Conduct.
  • When choosing an agent, you should discuss the service to be provided so you both know what to expect

If you’re
using a tax agent for the first time, or using a different tax agent, you need
to contact them before 31 October to take advantage of their extended program
due dates.

finances, oversee and manage bookkeeping functions, then analyze the financials

well as management of:

  • Set up the right structure for you
