Accountant FAQs

Having A Meeting With An Accountant

An accountant prepares and examines financial records, ensures all transactions are accurate and pays taxes on time. They are highly skilled in finance, maths and law and provide information to individuals and businesses to help them improve their financial position.

Some of the duties that accountancy firms can carry out include payroll management, monthly reporting to the Australian Tax Office, legal compliance, balancing invoice payments, putting together budgets, evaluating expenditure to find efficiencies, overlooking financial data, painting an overall picture of a business’s financial health, and much more.

Accountants are your expert partners in finance and business. While accountants are adept at tax returns for individuals and businesses, their services expand far beyond that. Your accountant is your barometer for your financial health.

They can assess your records, accounts, payments and every other aspect of your finances to determine the health of your business, your cash flow and how improvements can be made. Your accountants will also ensure you are completely compliant with the Australian Tax Office and all of your other legal reporting requirements.

For individuals, the tax-free threshold is the amount nominated by the Federal Government that you can earn before paying tax. This currently sits at $18,200. This threshold also applies to sole traders running their own businesses.

If the business is put together as a formal company, there is no tax-free threshold applicable and you must pay tax on every dollar that you earn. In many cases, it can be more beneficial for an individual to operate as a sole trader rather than under the umbrella of a company for tax purposes. This is just one example of how your accountant can assist you and improve your bottom line.

Individual tax returns are usually processed by the ATO within two weeks, but there can be circumstances where this takes longer. If you have a complex return or lodge during a high volume period then it can take longer for it to be processed.

Working through your tax return with an accountant will ensure this process is much shorter and they will discover every possible benefit for you. By lodging with an accountant, you can be assured that the return is compliant and there is no fear of an audit or expensive fines.

Bookkeeping services can be provided by your accountant and can assist with many business functions. This is especially beneficial for smaller businesses that can not afford expanded HR and payroll teams. Your bookkeeping can help with processing payroll, paying and recording invoice payments, ensuring all receipts are documented, issuing invoices, billing customers, and much more.

Through bookkeeping services, you can be assured that all transactions are accurately recorded and every incoming and outgoing dollar is reconciled. This information can also be used to create financial reports that can assist you in growing your business.
