As your business grows, the legal structure that you started with may no longer be appropriate for your needs. Factors such as increased risk, asset protection, new business partners and change in regulatory requirements can make your existing structure obsolete. Changing your business structure can be a costly and time consuming exercise. We guide clients through the restructure process, minimising any tax consequences and disruption to your business.
If you belong to an industry with heavy fuel usage, we work Australia wide providing Fuel Tax Credit Review services. The legislation around fuel tax credits is constantly changing and some businesses struggle to keep up.
These changes mean there are a number of areas where you should be claiming fuel tax credits at a higher rate compared to the on-road rate. Together we can identify these changes, with businesses being able to backdate their claim over a 4 year period as well as improving the business's claims going forward.
