Unfortunately, the tax legislation is a very complicated topic. With good advice and professional help throughout your working life, you can proactively manage and minimise your tax obligations.
For employees, there are a range of strategies available including negative gearing into property or shares, salary sacrificing, income splitting and maximising work related deductions.
For businesses, strategies include choosing the right business structure, splitting your income, superannuation, maximising your business deductions, and tax rate management.
It is essential your Income Tax Returns and Business Activity Statements are completed accurately and lodged on time. With many complex rules surrounding areas such as capital gains, tax deductions, negative gearing, types of structures and superannuation, most Australians need help meeting their tax obligations.
At Alands we offer a full range of taxation services. Our proactive approach ensures we deliver a consistent service and build solid relationships with our clients.
Alands can prepare income tax returns for individuals, partnerships, trusts, companies and superannuation funds.
We can also prepare your monthly, quarterly or annual BAS and Instalment Activity Statements, or teach you how to prepare these yourself.
Our accounting staff all have completed degrees, along with many being Chartered Accountants or Certified Practising Accountants. What this means to you is that you have highly trained and highly skilled accountants working on your taxation or GST affairs, making sure that you pay the least amount of tax or GST as legally possible.
