Taxation

Helping minimise your personal tax liability

Tax time is always a pain, no matter how simple or complex your return. And if it is simple, you may be tempted to do it yourself or hand it over to a non-specialist who may well be good with numbers but unaware of the latest tax regulations.

Like all heavily regulated bodies, the Taxation Office makes frequent changes that only an expert can keep up with. That leaves a number of possible traps: unclaimed deductions, recently disallowed ones, changing limits and altered reporting criteria.

If you're running a business, your personal tax return can become really complicated. How much salary should you be paying yourself. What deductions are allowed?

You also need to work out Fringe Benefits Tax, capital gains, the tax implications of trusts, share trading, depreciation schedules, whether personal assets (eg, laptops) are used in your business, and take into account home-office allowances and other variables that may affect your situation.

When you take a good long look, it can all become very complicated very fast. Which is exactly why you need the help of the fully qualified taxation specialists at CLM. They leave no stone unturned to help you keep every dollar you are legally entitled to.

Add the peace of mind we provide, along with a strong working relationship with the Taxation Office, and your personal finances will become worry-free and easier to manage than you ever thought possible.
