Expert Tax Planning for your business
When it comes to taxes, forward planning is key in finding ways to effectively and legitimately reduce or defer your yearly income tax.
No one likes paying more tax than their fair share, but it’s important to understand that the ATO tax system will not be on your side if you fail to comply to their regulations and it will be too late to talk to your tax accountant after 30 June each year, that’s why effective tax planning is so important for businesses and individuals.
With our tax planning solutions, we will help you implement appropriate strategies to ensure you are doing all you can to minimise your tax bill at the end of the year. Call us now on (02) 4942 0200 to learn more about how we can help you.
Cover yourself with our Audit Protection Service
Audits, reviews and investigations are conducted by the ATO and other state and federal government agencies to ensure businesses' and taxpayer's comply with various tax and legislative requirements, including income, land and payroll tax, GST, workers' compensation, superannuation guarantee, compliance research and development grants.
The ATO and other tax audits can be expensive, and their frequency has been steadily increasing. To help protect you from the unforeseen cost of these audits, VBD offers audit insurance, that provides for the payment of professional fees incurred as a result of you or your business being selected for an audit, review, or investigation by the ATO or another government body.
The cost of being properly represented in these matters can be quite considerable, depending on the length of time involved. The Audit Protection Service provides a fixed, cost-effective solution to guard against these unbudgeted costs.
