The end of the 2017 Financial Year is fast approaching
Be sure of your tax status for the year.
We like to take a ‘no surprises approach’ when it comes to your tax.
Reviewing your records before June 30th, allows us to advise any tax planning that may assist in reducing your tax.
Take action now to ensure you don’t get any costly surprises come tax.
We may have already reviewed your records at the end of the March Quarter, however a lot can happen in a couple of months, if you unsure what the end of the year will result, please send us your information – email, post or drop your information at either office.
For Tax Planning we will need information up to May 31st, 2017, including, where applicable, Accounts Receivable, Accounts Payable, copy of finance contracts (if new in this 2017 year), stock value on hand (at cost), bank & loan statements and a backup of your accounting file (or online access).
To ensure sufficient time for us to review your records, please send your information to us asap, to ensure we can advise BEFORE June 30th.
We are here to help.
