Trusts

Trusts have increasingly become a popular way of trading and carrying on business, they provide asset protecting and taxation flexibility. If you are thinking about a Trust as a medium for your business, we will identify and explain the pros and cons of doing so.
It is important to note that as Trusts have become more widely used by taxpayers to run their business, the ATO has also increased their level of scrutiny and compliance requirements.
We will help you set and maintain your trust ensuring compliance with all legislative requirements.


Bookkeeping

We understand that at the end of a long day of hard work the last thing you want to do is your business paperwork and bookkeeping, although this is a key part of ensuring your business is successful overtime.
Understanding your business cash cycles and ensuring tax compliance is essential.
For these reasons we can review your current bookkeeping systems and suggest ways in which you can stream line the process or if you require it we can take over the whole process for you.


Winding up and Bunkruptcy

Unfortunately is a reality of doing business that at some stage some will need to close down.
If this situation arises we can help you through this difficult process by restructuring where possible or by ensuring a stress free process of terminating your business.
We have helped many businesses through this difficult process by ensuring a good network of professionals working with you to facilitate the smoothness of the process.
