head-start: individual 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 entrants 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 and some non-residents of Australia have to comply with. Tax minimization strategies, tax advisors and maximizing your tax deductions have historically been reserved for the rich. But not anymore.

Good tax advice, provided in a timely and constructive way, can save even the average taxpayer thousands, if not tens of thousands of dollars a year.
Cameron Bodley, Director

Tax advice is often thought of only once a year, at tax time, which is often too late. Yet, as one of the single largest real expenditures out of our incomes, tax and advice about how to legally minimize our tax, is often neglected. Many tax payers 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 entrants to the Australian Tax System, this advice is even more valuable.

It is primarily for this reason that hanson|porter|curzon have developed the Head-Start Individual Tax Starter service to assist new residents in obtaining advice in a timely, logical and affordable manner to help unlock potential tax benefits. With the right strategies and forethought these benefits could be worth thousands or tens of thousands of dollars per year.
