Taxation

We have extensive experience in taxation matters for individuals, companies, trusts, partnerships and self-managed superannuation funds. We provide a personalised, friendly and efficient taxation service for all forms of entities.

Tax Planning
Planning is the key to successfully and legally reducing your tax liability. We go beyond tax compliance and proactively recommend tax saving strategies to maximize your after-tax income. We are pro-active with tax planning for share and property investments, including negative gearing and capital gains tax strategies.

Tax Return Preparation

Personal Tax Returns from $165 for employees with basic deductions.

Preparing your own income tax return can be a task that leaves you with more questions than answers. Whether we like it or not, today’s tax laws are so complicated that completing a relatively simple return can be confusing. It is just too easy to overlook deductions and credits you are entitled to. Even if you use a computer software program there’s no substitute for the assistance of an experienced tax professional.

Our goal is to make the preparation process as easy as possible for you and minimize your tax liability with careful planning. Your tax preparation interview can be conducted either in person, by e-mail or over the phone – whichever is most convenient for you. Whatever your circumstances may be, we are here to give you the best advice to help you get through life’s challenges.

Tax Problems
We’re here to help you resolve your tax problems and put an end to the misery that the ATO can put you through. We pride ourselves on being very efficient, affordable, and of course, extremely discreet.

Self Managed Super Funds

More and more people are realising the advantages of making their own investment decisions and taking control of their retirement strategy. An increasingly popular way of doing this is by setting up a self managed superannuation fund (SMSF).

An SMSF gives members of the fund control over specific investment choices involving their superannuation. They can tailor their own investment strategies and select specific assets such as listed securities, investment properties, managed funds, cash and term deposits and so on.

How can we help?
Moore & Co. Accountants offers a variety of services for SMSFs, including structure, setup, rollovers, investments and administration compliance. We specialise in superannuation and have a technical research team that provides updates and support on the latest in superannuation developments.

Accounting & Business Advisory

Whilst statutory compliance and tax consulting may be seen by many as the core tasks of a professional public accountant, this view is somewhat one-sided. When it comes to our small business clients we at Moore & Co. Accountants see our role as involving much more than compliance services.

(a) within 30 days after first receiving trust money (other than transit money) in the
jurisdiction concerned—written notice of the external examiner appointed by the law
practice as its external examiner; and
(b) within 7 days after an external examiner ceases to be the external examiner of the law
practice—written notice of that fact; and
(c) within 30 days after an external examiner ceases to be the external examiner appointed
by the law practice—written notice of the successor external examiner appointed by the
law practice as its external examiner.

Deceased Estates

Unfortunately, having to deal with managing a deceased estate is a task many of us will have to shoulder at some stage in our lives – but having someone who is familiar with what’s involved can ease the burden.

 What the estate comprises

The property and assets belonging to a person who has died, called their deceased estate, may include real estate, money in bank accounts, shares, and personal possessions. Some types of income can also form part of the deceased estate. However, some assets will not be included because the deceased may have made other arrangements to distribute them or own the assets as a joint tenant.

The deceased estate holds the assets of the deceased in trust from the time of the death of the person concerned until the transfer of the property and assets to their beneficiaries as nominated in their will.

Superannuation and life insurance payments may or may not form part of the deceased estate.

How can we help?

At Moore & Co.Accountants we have many years of experience in handling the tax responsibilities and capital gains (CGT) implications involved in deceased estates. We can help lodging the final tax return as well as any outstanding tax returns, lodging any trust tax returns, and providing beneficiaries with the information they need to include distributions in their own returns.

Graham & Helen Barber

Moore & Co. Accountants has been doing my tax returns since 1975 when I commenced my first full time job in real estate. They have always had my best interests at the forefront of their advice and whilst we may have had some robust discussions about matters over the years I have always valued their wise counsel.

Peter Timms – Senior Development Manager

Over the years I have had a number of taxation agents in places where I have lived, but since returning to Melbourne I have genuinely found Moore & Co. Accountants to be the best all-round company for all of our accountancy needs.

Dr J H Grey

Moore & Co. Accountants has been auditing my SMSF since I started it in 1997. Throughout the years, they have been rigorous and efficient in the audit. Small errors have been corrected and advice acted on, both of which have invariably resulted in tax savings and the maintenance of clean and clear accounting records.
