Tax Structuring and Advice

Tax Structuring and Advice

Whether you’re just starting your business or looking for ways to improve your current business, a professional analysis of your structure can help you to know if you’re positioned well. Our advisers can help you to land on the best possible structure for your business, protect wealth, reduce risk with full compliance.

Indirect Taxation Advice

Indirect Taxation Advice

You have enough to worry about without the administrative burden caused by indirect taxes like GST, stamp duty, land tax and payroll tax. Small mistakes on these taxes can have significant consequences, especially when it comes to mergers, acquisitions and restructures. Get the professional advice and assistance you need regarding your indirect taxes.

Employee Share Plan

Employee Share Plan

Many employees today are looking for benefits like equity rewards and employers who offer these incentives attract top talent. Our advisers can consult with you about the potential benefits of establishing an employee share plan, which aligns employees and shareholders in their goals. Whether you’re a start up looking to incentivise and remunerate employees without upfront cash outlays or business owners looking to hand over management while they phase down or exit a business, our tax team can provide advice on remuneration structures that are practical and beneficial to your business and staff.

Early Stage Innovators

Early Stage Innovators

If your company qualifies as an Early Stage Innovation Company (ESIC) according to ATO guidelines, your investors may be entitled to tax incentives, and this status can be a significant boost to your growth. We can help you to know if your company qualifies, and if so, how to go about requesting a ruling from the ATO. It’s a great time to be an innovative Australian company!
