At Thorntons Business Advisors we offer a full range of taxation services. Our tax consulting service division is nationally recognised and we offer advice based on proven knowledge and experience. Our proactive approach ensures we deliver consistent service and build solid relationships that stand the test of time.

Taxation can be a major cost to your business. We will work with you to minimise your tax and help you achieve your key objectives. We provide a complete service of assistance and advice in each of these areas:

  • Preparation of annual income tax returns
  • Business activity statements and advice on tax payments
  • GST/FBT obligations
  • Advice on, and implementation of, tax effective trust structures for asset protection and tax minimisation
  • Managing any ATO audits or disputes

Taxation Consulting

Tax Planning and Management

Taxation management is a fundamental aspect of every business, and keeping up to date and meeting compliance requirements in this increasing complex area requires a business advisor who understands the legal requirements as well as the needs of your business.

Our commitment to continuing professional education means we keep up to date in the complex area of taxation so that we can provide sound advice and solutions for our clients.

We believe that appropriate periodic reviews of your tax situation offer you an opportunity to take a step back and consider the past year and planning for the next.

As in every aspect of our work, we always aim to go beyond compliance, to provide a complete service to our clients.

GST Consulting

We provide a range of client-specific services including specialised advice to help clients understand the complexities of the GST. These services include:

  • Special treatment of GST for Developers, in particular the use of the Margin Scheme
  • Systems reviews
  • Practical and clear recommendations to resolve specific GST issues
  • Private Ruling Requests from the ATO to confirm GST treatment

Capital Gains Tax

As nearly every asset is subject to capital gains tax, we recommend seeking advice before purchasing or selling an asset. We provide advice to minimise your Capital Gains Tax liability.

International Tax

Many Australians have assets or conduct international business. Our specialists offer advice and practical assistance when dealing with overseas taxation matters.

ATO Audit reviews

Tax audits are confusing and stressful. Our tax consultants will assist you through an ATO audit by liaising with the ATO on your behalf and providing information in a timely manner.

In response to the high volume of audit activity on taxpayers in recent years, we hold an Audit Insurance policy in our own name. This is to cover the professional fees incurred in preparing all relevant documentation and responses to the ATO, or any other Government Agency, concerning an audit, review or investigation. The coverage can be extended to any clients who also wish to participate.

On behalf of Aquatec I would like to say that getting Thornton’s to provide management reports and business consulting has been the best thing we ever did. Moving from a “standard” accounting practice that wasn’t really giving us any proper advice to Thornton’s helped us transform our business and gave us a crystal clear picture of our business health on a month to month basis. Overall a great company to work with, would highly recommend them.
