Property

Do you have the financial blueprints of your business?

 

  • We'll help you find the right structure
  • We know the risks you face and how best to minimise them
  • Advice on purchasing and selling

At some stage in your life you will own and deal with property.  Whether it's your own home, an investment property or a development, property can be a high risk business. That's where our specialists come in.  They will provide the advice and guidance you need to make your move the right one.

We know that there are 5 big risk factors in the property industry: authority risk, construction risk, finance risk, market risk and settlement risk. Making the wrong move could therefore cost you a good return. So dealing with our experts who understand how to tackle these risks, know the rules, the concessions and how the property industry operates, will provide you with the peace of mind you need.

As well as helping our property clients invest in the right type of structure we have assisted many people over recent years in facing the on-going economic challenges. In addition we've assisted clients with their everyday accounting needs and advice on purchases and sales.

Accounts and tax

Running your business from day to day isn't just about the core services you provide, it's about maintaining the numbers behind the scenes so that you can cut costs and make money. Our Property specialists can help you with the following accounts and tax services:

  • Structuring advice
  • Acquisition and sales
  • Finance assistance
  • Cashflow and planning
  • Financial statement & Tax Return preparation
  • Business activity statements
  • Negative gearing
  • Fringe benefits tax
  • Corporate tax issues
  • GST
  • Capital Gains Tax
  • ATO audit reviews for income tax & GST
  • Trust accounts
  • Corporate secretarial services

While some of these services may seem straight forward, getting them wrong will cost you a lot of money, even more if the ATO comes looking. Property transactions always attract the ATO. They monitor the activities of both developers and investors due to the size of the industry and the amounts often involved.

Getting the tax right is often the difference between an average project and a great project. This means that you need someone who understands the rules applicable to property transactions, including negative gearing, GST, entering and exiting the right structures, timing of profits and getting the right tax treatment of profits from the projects.
