I'm an existing business, can you help me?

As your accountant for your existing small business, here's a rough guide of how we'll help you once you join us:

  • Establish what part of the business life cycle you are currently in, from start up, to growth, to maturity
  • Notify your previous accountant (if applicable) of our appointment, request all previous documentation and review previous accounts/tax returns to give us a better insight into your business
  • Assess reasons why your business is looking at changing accountants (if applicable) and address those issues as a priority
  • Appoint ourselves as the registered tax agent with the ATO and ASIC, take control of the these relationships, liaise with the ATO to determine if all lodgements and payments are up to date, and if not, work with the ATO and you to have all lodgements brought up to date
  • Assess and amend any systems and their value to your business
  • We are always available to answer client queries and questions by email and telephone. We are also more than happy to attend on site for clients that find it hard to get away from their place of business
