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!

  • The Quill team are second to none. We recently experienced a sudden event which resulted in a need to urgently review our financial situation pre retirement. From the moment we walked in the door at Southport to be greeted by Jessica, to the comfort of the modern and well equipped offices, the ability to display our financial positions on screen, and to Peter's caring manner and expert advice, we were put at ease with the knowledge that our financial futures are secure. I cannot recommend the Quill Group enough. First class service all the way.

  • After more than 10 years of receiving advice from Tony and his team at Quill we couldn't be happier and have seen our savings and investments grow at a rate we couldn't achieve elsewhere. Their advice has transitioned us from workers into comfortably self-funded retirees, in that time. Everything has been thoroughly explained to us in deciding between options and the pain of dealing with paperwork has been reduced to a minimum. We have a high degree of trust in this team, that recommended investments have performed well while limiting exposure to risk and that we would be happy to say, 'Go with Quill....you won't regret it'

  • We were very impressed with the service provided at Quill. From the moment we walked in the door till the moment we exited we were looked after by friendly staff. The financial advisor was wonderful and took the time to get an idea who we are and our goals. Advice was realistic and holistic taking our best interests into account. We very much appreciated the time, delivery of the advice and the follow up. Thanks again Tony and the Quill team.
