Tax Planning

What is Tax Planning?

Tax planning is the ongoing process of

  • Proactively assessing public information relevant to your business
  • Learning and understanding your obligations
  • In response, recording your own information
  • Creating an informed plan to best optimise your short term and long term goals.

Why do we plan for tax time?

No matter your stage of life, taxation planning helps to shape your financial position. Planning for tax time ensures there are no nasty surprises. Chances are, at some point in the past you’ve been hit with an unexpected bill, whether as a naïve university student completing your first lodgement, or as an unprepared small business learning the ropes.

Tax planning in Australia can be challenging, as tax legislation changes regularly, and must be reflected in your planning. It’s important to stay abreast of any ongoing changes that may affect expected tax payments. Recording your regular spending and other everyday activities helps to ensure we have the appropriate information ready when tax time inevitably rolls around. This ensures that your business remains tax compliant and it also helps us to optimise your financial position.

In short, tax planning ensures we minimise expenses and maximise profits.

What our clients say

Mel and Marks Cleaning Services Adelaide - Client of Growth IQ

As a fast-growing business, we found ourselves in a situation where we needed to get up to speed on the business operations, finances and cash flow. We knew we needed an accounting firm to do more than just prepare our BAS’s and Tax Returns and tell us how to stay out of trouble. We needed a team with the capability to take on several key financial functions and consult with us on a regular basis. From day 1, Growth IQ have taken the time to learn our business, Mel and Mark’s Cleaning Services, and become our external CFO that asks us the tough questions. Their team has brought financial expertise to us and is letting me focus on our service offering.
