ATO Relationship Management (including ATO Audit Support) - CapitalQ

ATO Relationship Management (including ATO Audit Support)

Like it or not, for most businesses there will come a time when direct contact and dealings are required to be made with the ATO.

And we undertake the management of your ATO relationship for you.

Why might you need to deal directly with the ATO –

  • ATO queries regarding your affairs and lodgements – It happens more than you think, the very vast majority of the time it is no problem at all – so long as you handle it correctly! Get it wrong, increase their suspicions or mistrust of you and your affairs, and it could quickly snowball.
  • Requests for deferred lodgement – We commit that our clients will never lodge late (so long as they provide us with the information and opportunity to do so). But there will be times when late lodgement is simply unavoidable. In that case, we recommend being proactive in your dealings with the ATO, letting them know you will be late, requesting a deferral and generally ensure they don’t get the wrong idea.
  • Payment plans – Similarly, there will be times where paying on time simply can’t be met. We will negotiate with the ATO on your behalf in order to secure payment plans, avoiding penalties and avoiding a poor record.

Accounting & Tax

What our customers say

Logo for Michael Gray
Duncan Melbin’s firm first became the business accountants for Exploration Data Services, and my Family, when he was still a Graduate Accountant some 16 years ago. Myself and my late business partner have followed him ever since!

In the early days Duncan was very proactive in regards to fine tuning our business structure and the benefits of getting the structure right early are still flowing today.

Throughout my time working with Duncan he has played a key role in ensuring our tax affairs have always been in order and our tax obligations have always been minimised and well managed.

Duncan has also played a key role in ensuring my Family and I have adequate wealth protection in place and that we have maximised our wealth creation including through a regular superannuation contribution strategy and the use of a self-managed super fund that keeps us engaged, in control and to a large extent free from the perils of the GFC.

More recently we took the opportunity to outsource our entire back office accounting function to CapitalQ including switching our accounting and invoicing to Xero. I now spend barely any time at all on my monthly accounting and Activity Statement lodgements, as CapitalQ have it all in hand. This allows me to focus on running my business better, and frankly to have more time to enjoy the spoils of a life in business.

I work closely with Kapil Bhasin, our Client Manager, and Peter Melbin, our outsourced Bookkeeper, and they are clearly very valuable assets for CapitalQ.

Working with Duncan, Kapil and Peter is very easy, they respond promptly to any queries I have and most importantly I have complete trust in the advice they give me and that my business affairs are being well looked after. I would recommend CapitalQ to any potential client without reservation.

So if you own a small business or are looking to grow your wealth I highly recommend you speak to the CapitalQ Team. They will give you good advice, and ensure you are on track for a sound business and financial future (and outsourcing your back office accounting process to them, and switching to Xero, will be two of the best business decisions you will make).
