Tax planning & minimisation

Explore every strategy to reduce your tax and improve your position (legally, of course!)

Paying tax means your making a profit, which is what we're here for! So the goal isn't to pay zero tax - But you may potentially be paying thousands that you don't need to. This is why we work with our clients proactively prior to the end of financial year to explore every strategy to reduce your tax and improve your position. This is more than just another tax deduction here and there, and we aren't promising you won't pay tax... But it will make an impact on your tax return.

Helping you reduce your tax payable with tax minimisation strategies

There's a huge range of strategies you can use to minimise your business tax - from a simple recommendation to make a concessional superannuation contribution for a self-employed person, or for those on a different journey, you may have multiple structures/complex business structure and require an analysis of your trading to date and assessable income - where you will be provided with a report containing several strategies to improve your tax situation and ensure there are no nasty surprises come tax time.

Who will benefit:

  • New businesses who are unsure how they are performing
  • Businesses struggling with cashflow
  • Businesses wanting reassurance they won't have a tax problem
  • Complex business structures with multiple entities
  • What is the meaning of tax planning?
  • What are the new tax cuts 2024?

    The horizon for Australian taxpayers looks promising with the introduction of new tax cuts set for 1 July 2024. Labor's latest legislative brushstrokes paint a future where more Aussies can expect a lighter tax load, all thanks to rate reductions and threshold adjustments that aim to keep more money in your pocket and effectively combat bracket creep.

    Here's the lowdown:

    • For those earning between $18,200 and $45,000, your tax rate will dip from 19% to a cooler 16%.

    • If you're making between $45,000 and the bumped-up threshold of $135,000, your rate will drop from 32.5% to a more relaxed 30%.

Tax minimisation and Planning 2

Why plan for 30 June / end of financial year (EOFY)? 

There's no good looking retrospectively at the numbers and your accounts - You could be letting opportunities slip by and also setting yourself up to pay thousands in tax than you need to

Some of the benefits and reasons for planning for 30 June are:

  • Changes as a result of the federal budget that affect you
  • Changes as a result of the personal income tax rate
  • Take advantage of business asset purchase deductions
  • Contributions into superannuation to reduce personal income tax liabilities
  • Review owner wages/ taxable income & adjust as necessary to reduce unnecessary tax (only available if adjusted pre 30 June)
  • Review key strategies to minimise your capital gains tax (capital gains tax cgt)
  • Avoid any unpleasant tax surprises
  • Plan future cash flow including tax payments & PAYGI catchup instalments
  • Ensure taxable income is in the most appropriate entity to minimise income tax
  • Check tax offset, distribute income for different tax rate, and income tax return tax planning strategies
  • And so much more.
  • What is my taxable income?

    Think of this as as all the money you've got left after you deduct the eligible expenses. It's your gross income after tax deductions have had their share—a.k.a, your financial cake after the taxman's had his slice.

    And what makes up this tasty treasure also known as assessable income? Your wages, salary, and any cash earned from irregular or occasional work—it's all part of the mix!

    With the end of the tax year (30 June, we see you!) just around the bend, now is the perfect time to assess your taxable income for the 2023-24 fiscal run and take a sneak peek at the 2024-25 forecast. Why do this, you ask? Because knowing where you stand today is your first step on the road to savvy, forward-thinking tax planning. Imagine knowing your tax liability almost a year before it's due!
