Tax Law Expert For Business
Tax Solutions for Business
We provide business tax law services, business tax help and small business tax advice to business taxpayers who have a tax problem or tax issue relating to their business.
Everybody’s tax situation is different. You may operate your business as a sole trader or operate through a private company, partnership or trust.
No matter how you are structured or what your tax problem or tax issue is, we can resolve it for you.
These are some of the common business tax issues where we help our business clients to sort out their business tax problem.
If you have a business tax debt that you can’t pay or are struggling to pay, then depending on your circumstances we can help you by:
- Negotiating with the ATO to get you more time to pay your tax
- Making your business tax debt smaller by getting penalties and interest reduced
If you pay wages above the relevant state threshold, you may have a liability to pay payroll tax, subject to any available exemption.
In addition, the payroll tax laws in each state deem certain entities to be “grouped” as though they were one entity for payroll tax purposes. This can lead to many business groups, especially those growing quickly and with an increasing wages bill, unknowingly exceeding the payroll tax threshold and becoming liable for payroll tax.
However, we can advise you on whether you may be eligible to apply for an exemption from grouping which would reduce your payroll tax liability.
Other payroll tax issues we assist business clients with include:
- Applications for exclusion from payroll tax grouping
- State and territory payroll tax reviews and audits
- Voluntary disclosures for under payment or over payment of payroll tax
- Objections to payroll tax assessments
Capital Gains Tax (CGT)
CGT is a complex area. We can advise you on the CGT implications of transactions and how to reduce your CGT if possible.
We use our vast tax knowledge and experience to advise clients on the CGT implications of different transactions and identify the best way to structure and implement transactions to take advantage of available discounts, small business CGT concessions, roll-overs and exemptions.
Whether you are selling your business, retiring, undergoing a business restructure, or undergoing some other commercial transaction, we will identify the best CGT solution for you.
If your business is reviewed or audited by the ATO, we can help you to manage the audit process and resolve your tax issue. We will fight for your claims wherever legally possible under the tax law.
Tax advice or ruling
If you need tax advice or a tax ruling on any business tax issue, we can help you by providing tax advice that you can understand.
