We work with our clients to adopt and establish appropriate business structures; this includes trusts, companies and partnerships.

Let us prepare your tax return for you

Preparation of Business & Individual Income Tax Returns

CL Accountant prepare and lodge annual tax returns for individuals, partnerships, trusts, companies and superannuation funds. We aim to get you the best return by getting to know your business. 

We can arrange your tax return via email or we can visit your premises if all your important documents are stored at home. The advantages of using our tax return service relieves the burden of transporting all your important and unnecessary documents to our meeting.

Preparation of Financial Statements

Regular financial statements for businesses are necessary. Financial statements help business owners make operating decisions and ensure that creditors evaluate loan applications properly. They also provide an opportunity to arm individuals with the information needed to make smart investment decisions.

Preparation of Business Activity Statements

Business Activity Statements (BAS) are used to reconcile your Goods and Services (GST) liability with the ATO. In addition, they are used for reporting PAYG instalments and tax instalments. We can offer a service to have your BAS statements prepared on time, every time, on a monthly or quarterly basis.

Preparation of Instalment Activity Statements

We analyse your figures and data input so you can keep in control of your business and identify your profits and loss. CL Accountants will provide guidance on whether your business is progressing well or is in the need of some analysis to ascertain if your business is on track to being a successful enterprise.

Regular business activity and instalment statement services also help to prepare your tax return for the year ahead.

Business Services

As a local accountant firm we offer a personalised friendly service, working with both individuals and businesses. As a registered Taxation Agent we abide by the Rules of the Taxation Practitioners Board as well as the rules and regulations stipulated by the Institute of Public Accountants (IPA).

Tax Planning

CL Accountant tax planning services cover all the things that are absolutely ESSENTIAL from your accountant: year-end accounts, corporation tax return, payroll, annual return and personal tax return. Where we are different to the majority of firms is that before your year-end has happened, we will be on the phone to you, getting an understanding of where you are and then completing the accounts as soon after the year end as possible.

Payroll tax advice

Navigating the maze of federal and state taxation legislation and keeping up-to-date with changes can be time-consuming and overwhelming. You could also be missing out on rebates and incentives. CL Accountants specialists help to ensure that both you and your business are not paying any more tax than is necessary, while at the same time minimising and appropriately managing your tax risk.

Set Up Company, Trust, Partnership and Sole Trader

If you have a good idea for a new business venture but don't have expertise in the legal or financial aspects of creating a new business, we can help you:
Decide on the most suitable structure for your business - sole trader, partnership, or limited company.
Prepare a business plan, cash flow projections, budgets, and trading forecasts.

Apply ABN, TFN and Business Name

The contents of the ATO website change very often. It is our job to keep up to date with this information and we will make sure your ABN registration is 100% accurate. Our ABN registration process is quick, affordable and simple for you. All you need to do is provide basic contact information and your latest tax return (in most cases we will have this). We may require a short call to discuss your business structure so we can apply for the correct ABN: e.g. ABN Sole Trader.
