Tax returns & advice

Taxation is one of life’s certainties. We make sure that you always know where you stand. The annual income you earn is the result of a year of hard work and stress. It is our job to take the work and stress out of your end of year tax return. By partnering up with you throughout the year using our three tiered approach of advice, structuring and planning we ensure that you maximise your overall position and make corrective decisions throughout each income year before it’s too late.

Our philosophy

We focus on high quality, tailored services that support you.

Our philosophy at Traverse is to develop and keep relationships with likeminded entrepreneurial people. We work tirelessly for all of our clients who value and trust us.

For most, accountants or the accounting function are cost centres. We turn that notion on its head by challenging ourselves to be value creators for you.

Our philosophy

The sky is the limit. We’re here to help you reach it and Traverse the space in between.

Our advisory team are pro active, lateral thinkers, who don’t stop at tax and accounting. Mentoring and structuring advice is one of specialties and we have a wide ranging accumulation of experiences which help us to guide you and help you reach your potential.

Corporate

Companies have multiple regulatory bodies to report to whether they’re listed or unlisted.

The demand for shareholder disclosure and focus on Director responsibility has never been greater than it is now. Our corporate experience and services are focused on corporate compliance, remuneration and governance. Combined with our advisory services you’ll have a full service independent accounting and taxation function for your Company.

Business Taxation Services


Our clients always compliment us on our ability to explain difficult taxation concepts in a simple way that is easy to understand.

We pride ourselves on our no fuss approach to tax.

Unlike other firms, we’re not afraid to pick up the phone and talk to you, and we don’t write long letters of advice about simple issues. Traverse Accountants focuses on three key tax fundamentals: Advice, Structuring and Planning.

Taxation Services

Advice

Advice can be as simple as helping a client decide the most tax effective way of purchasing an asset or as important as knowing the implications of selling a commercial property. Traverse provides Pro active advice which is tax effective, but in many case preventative.

Many tax professionals make a living out of fixing or advising on matters which could have been avoided with the right advice in the first place.

Structuring

Structuring is opportune when either:

  • Establishing a new venture;
  • Planning an expansion;
  • New investors join a business;
  • Making any substantial asset purchase.

Getting the structure right the first time means there’s no need to worry about stamp duty or capital gains tax (“CGT”) implications at a later date to rectify poor advice.

Planning

Planning is a basic requirement if you’re going to take advantage of any structuring opportunities or stay abreast of your day to day tax liabilities.

We undertake brief quarterly planning reviews on lodgement of each clients BAS which keep us informed of anticipated business profits or losses for the current income year. From this we can then make recommendations and report on overall performance.

In the final quarter we do an end of year tax planning report to:

  • Benchmark business performance;
  • Calculate owner drawings and personal tax position to allow informed decision making;
  • Provide an estimated tax liability as the EOFY approaches;
  • Plan timing of asset purchases or sales;
  • Allow client to budget with time to spare for any tax liabilities;
  • Optimise for any opportunities between the business and its owners or staff.

Traverse can also help your business with these compliance essentials:

  • Taxation advice on all matters and contracts;
  • GST and PAYG advice and planning;
  • Expanding offshore or earning foreign income;
  • Employee Share Schemes;
  • Fringe Benefits Tax (“FBT”) advice and compliance;
  • Salary packaging advice (motor vehicles, laptops, loans etc);
  • Knowledge of State based taxes, such as Payroll Tax and State duties.
