Tax Planning Strategies

This is the big one, this is the one everyone is most interested in.

And is the one we really enjoy working particularly hard on, to ensure none of our Clients pay a cent more in tax then they are legally required to do so.

Tax is consistently the single biggest expense a person who has enjoyed any level of financial success will incur over their lifetime.

So it makes sense to minimise the tax you pay at every available opportunity, and consistently each year.

The difference it can make over your life can be huge.

Tax planning

  • Starts with your business structure, if this isn’t right, every other step is substantially harder.
  • Then comes the planning strategies before the end of each financial year.
  • It ends with the preparation of the final tax returns.

Having said that, now more than ever, tax planning MUST occur before the event.

And your structure needs to provide the flexibility you may require in the years to come.

But even if you get your structure right, if you then choose to put it off each year until tax time, to a large extent it is far too late.

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).
