What does my corporate tax accountant need from me to get started doing my business accounting and tax work?

Your assigned company tax accountant will need your substantiation documentation or your MYOB data file for your business or investment entity and your written undertaking that you have the substantiation records for their query where required. 

Your tax accountant  then take that information, input it into our Accounting and Taxation software and prepare accounts and reports for analysis and adjustment in accordance with Australian Accounting Standards. From this you get your taxation reconciliation and a business tax return. 

Your corporate tax returns are going to produce different information compared to your financial reports (different net income for instance) because of the differences between Financial Accounting and Australian Tax Law (in most situations). Your business tax accountant can explain these differences to you as required.

What time of year can I get my business accounting and tax work done?

You can bring your work in to an Ascendia office near you for us to start work in July - as soon as you have all the relevant information. Our business tax agent offices on the Sunshine Coast are located in Noosa and Maroochydore and our Brisbane accountants office is located in North Lakes. 

Our tax accountants have an early bird offer of 60 days return of completed work for clients who provide all their data and responses to our queries before August 30.

When is my Tax Return due to be lodged with the ATO?

This depends on a number of things:

  • Whether you are up to date with your lodgements
  • Whether you have any new entities
  • What type of entity it is we are lodging for
  • Whether you are currently registered with a tax agent etc. 

If you ask about this your Ascendia corporate tax accountant can advise you of your individual lodgement dates.

What do your business tax agents provide me with when the job is finished?

Once our business tax accountants wrap up your tax accounting services for the year we give you the final reports - copies of the tax returns and annual financial reports where financial accounting has been provided. 

We also provide documents for you to authorise the lodgement of the returns and do not lodge the returns until these are signed by you

As we use electronic lodgement,this speeds up the ATO assessment substantially in most cases. We also can provide electronic .PDF copies of these documents as requested.

We can also provide adjusting journals for your bookkeeping files in MYOB or if you would prefer it, we can make the adjusting journals for you. Just let us know.


We're here when you need us!
