head-start: business tax starter

hanson|porter|curzon are proud to offer as part of our Head-Start series of services, a comprehensive Tax Package to assist new entrepreneurs within the Australian Tax System.

The Australian Taxation System is a complex and ever changing piece of legislative work that is made up of several Acts of Parliament and thousands of pages of legislation.

Tax compliance is the headache that every Australian business has to comply with. Having a specialized tax advisor to call on to assist with tax strategies, tax structuring and advice has historically been reserved for larger businesses and multinationals. But not anymore.

Good tax advice, at the inception of a business being established can mean the difference between accessing or not accessing the tax benefits that are available to business in the Australian Tax System. -Cameron Bodley, Director

Tax advice received after a business is established is often too late. Yet, as one of the single largest real expenditures of business, tax and advice about how to legally structure, and minimize your businesses tax, is often neglected. Many business owners opt to go it alone rather than seek professional assistance, because they are concerned about the cost, but expert, timely advice will generally save you money and certainly take the stress out of trying to do it yourself. For new business operators, this advice is even more valuable.

It is primarily for this reason that hanson|porter|curzon have developed the Head-Start Business Tax Starter service to assist new entrepreneurs in obtaining advice in a timely, logical and affordable manner to help unlock potential tax benefits.
