It's TAX PLANNING time (again!)
Sciacca's News


Tax planning, if you're not up with the lingo, is simply understanding in advance what your tax may be, taking steps to reduce your tax liability and managing your cashfow to cover for the tax. It's important to understand it's impact on your cash flow and have strategies in place to best manage it.
Get together with John and work through your figures to estimate your net profit. We'll then look at steps to reduce your taxable income, resulting in less estimated tax payable. We also take a look at the business operations moving forward, rather than 12 months later when it's too late!
For tax planning to be timely and worthwhile, we need to have your information in by mid May so get in now and book a tax planning session with John today.
Audit Insurance makes sense

We are in the process of sending out letters to all clients in the next few months about audit insurance. 

With the high levels of audit activity we are now seeing, it makes sense for us to offer clients an opportunity to have audit fees taken care of. Audit fees are an unexpected and unwelcome cost your business just doesn't need!

As the 2014 financial year approaches a conclusion all too soon, the recent figures represent increase in audit activity of 13% compared to the previous period and it is set to increase further.

Audit Insurance covers a whole lot more than just income tax issues with the ATO. It includes all types of queries such as phone calls relating to BAS, through to time consuming employer obligations audits including payroll tax.

If you'd like to find out more, give us a call on 3357 5553.

We can help to review your accounting software and ensure your business will remain compliant. Give us a call on 3357 5553 to book a time to get your business ready for the new financial year.
