Have you considered using an online tax return agent?
How do I compare tax agents in Brisbane?
After you've checked that the agent is registered, there are three main areas in which tax agents differ. These include:
- Price. This is always the big one, and in tax like in everything else, you’ll find services that work for a range of different fees. The fee will also vary based on what type of return you’re looking to process.
- Method. Some tax services work entirely remotely, while others require your physical presence. If you have a preference, you should look for a tax service that offers that.
- Your return type. If you’re filing an individual return, a trust return, or a business return, you’ll be able to find a tax service that specialises in your area. Look through our guides to find one that fits.
What are the pros and cons of using a tax agent?
- Ease - The best thing about getting someone to complete your tax return is that you don’t have to complete it yourself! The main reason for using a tax professional is to hand over what is essentially a quite tricky thing to someone who does it for a living.
- Accuracy - You want to get your tax return right the first time, otherwise you risk penalties and more stress and work down the track. If you’re unfamiliar with taxation, then it's probably beneficial to use an agent who knows what they're doing.
- Deductions - The tax code is constantly changing, and each year different rules and regulations, and different deductions apply. Unless you feel like reading the tax guidelines for any given year, you could always choose to hand your return over to someone who already knows.
- Cost. The only downside really is the cost. If you want to use a tax service, then you have to pay for a tax service. However, using a tax agent will likely get you a bigger return, so it could end up saving you money.
What questions can I ask my tax agent to ensure they’re looking after my best interests?
- Ensure that they are certified with the Tax Practitioners Board (TPB). This is the national register of companies that are allowed to provide tax advice.
- Ensure that they have professionals dedicated to my type of return. For example, business tax, trust tax or individual tax.
- Ask about what deductions you are entitled to.
- Ask about their fees and if there are any hidden charges.
- Ask about the key dates and timings of my return.
- When the process is complete, as your agent if there is anything you could do better for next year. For example, keeping more receipts or maximising deductions.
Users are also requested to read all terms and conditions related document carefully before committing to any Tax Specialists Service.
