Accounting Services Brisbane

Even though you may not see your accountant very often, he or she will be a very important person in your life.  They are the guardian at the gate who keeps you safe from the ravages of the tax man.

Okay, that may be a slight exaggeration, but one thing that’s certainly not exaggerated is the fact that most Australians are paying too much tax. If you don’t want to be like them, and you want to make sure you’re not paying more than your fair share of tax, selecting a decent accountant is a task you should not neglect.

For accounting services in Brisbane, you should choose an accountant from Quill. That’s because this way you can be sure you have the best accountant in Brisbane.

It’s a bold claim to make, but it’s one we can back up with action. The bottom line is we help our clients:

  • avoid problems with the ATO
  • ensure they’re paying the right amount of tax
  • find ways to turn negatives into positives

That last line may sound a little confusing, but bear with us. What it means is you can sometimes move money or other assets around in ways that will convert something that is normally a pure expense into something that actually does you some good.

A simple example of turning a negative into a positive

Assume you’re self employed as a sole trader. Being free of the PAYG system, you will normally have to pay all your tax as a lump sum at the end of the financial year, or sometimes in quarterly instalments.

Many people dread this because it means they’ll need to set aside a lot of their income and have the discipline not to touch it. If you know in advance that you’ll have a tax debt of around $50,000 at the end of the year and you have at least that much in the bank, you can turn your tax burden into an income producing asset.

How you do this is you put your $50,000 into a short term deposit and use the interest from it to help pay off a debt more quickly or for investment in shares, or something like that. When the time comes to pay your taxes, you have the money right there to do it with, but in the meantime, you’ve put that money to good use generating more money for you.

Another example

If you’re an employee and your taxable income is under $250,000 p.a., you can reduce some of the tax you’ll have to pay in the current year by moving a portion of your income into your superannuation fund as a “salary sacrifice”.

While that money will eventually be taxed at 15%, it’s not directly taxable in the current financial year, doesn’t count as part of your taxable income, and the difference you create may even help you qualify for a lower tax bracket.

You can also make additional personal super contributions which can lower your official taxable income for the year, which means you can possibly get a bigger tax refund or a lower tax debt when tax time comes around.

There are some rules that apply to this. You need to be careful exactly how you do it to make sure it doesn’t turn around and become a negative again. Your accountant can explain exactly how this works.

Even though the money you pay out is the same whether you pay it as tax or pay it as a super contribution, there’s a massive difference in the effect.

Money you pay in tax benefits you indirectly through government spending such as funding for hospitals, schools, and sidewinder missiles. Money you pay into your super fund benefits you directly by increasing your retirement balance, providing an opportunity to earn more compound interest, reducing your current year taxable income, and possibly also getting you into a lower income tax bracket.

The awesome thing is that you get to choose how much of your money benefits you directly or indirectly.

These were just simple examples of small changes that can lead to big differences. To find out more of the possibilities, set up a consultation with a Quill accountant today.

Whether it’s individual or commercial tax needs, financial advice or strategies to grow your business, the Quill Group has you covered!

Don’t take our word for it

Here’s what some of our clients have to say!

  • Up until recently I haven't' needed a lot of one-on-one advice but when I have, Geoff Burchill has always been very prompt. Recently I have needed some advice regarding retirement and superannuation and Geoff has given me a lot of time. I have had a 15 year relationship with Geoff as my financial advisor and I have always felt my funds are in good hands.
    Rachael H.
  • Over the last 20 years we have always been very happy with the service Katharine Adderley and the rest of the team have provided for us. We always feel very comfortable and relaxed with the advise they give us.
    Malcolm D.
  • Really happy with your service. Katharine always keep me informed of what is happening. Your visits to Alice is important for me as  I think I get more information by having face to face meetings as questions come up that may not happen if on the phone.
    Jennifer W.
  • “In my circumstances you are very good for me. You explain things so I can understand easily even if I do get muddled some times. You look after me very well. Trust is a word that means a lot to me & I have trust in you doing the best for me. Thank you .”
    Josephine L.
