Must Read

Make sure that anyone you are thinking of trusting with your tax is fully licensed and registered. To check this, make sure they are registered with the Tax Practitioners Board (TPB). This is the national registry of tax services allowed in Australia, put simply, if they’re not registered then they’re operating illegally and should be avoided and reported. The TPB section of the official Australian Government website has a full list of registered tax services.

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?

Pros

  • 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.

Cons

  • 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?

  1. 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.
  2. Ensure that they have professionals dedicated to my type of return. For example, business tax, trust tax or individual tax.
  3. Ask about what deductions you are entitled to.
  4. Ask about their fees and if there are any hidden charges.
  5. Ask about the key dates and timings of my return.
  6. 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.

    Hi,

    I closed my ACN in February as I had not used it. I have recently been awarded a contract with Queensland goverment and would like to reinstate and start trading again. I need someone who can provide tax advice and also do my quarterly BAS and annual returns. I am starting as a single person and are also interested in SMSF. I am interested in Xero or alternative collection methods and value for money fee structure. Can you assist please?

    Helen

      Hi Helen,

      Thank you for getting in touch with finder.

      Reinstatement will restore a company to registered as if it was never deregistered.

      You can apply to ASIC for reinstatement (if you meet the criteria), or apply to the court for an order that ASIC reinstate a company.

      Upon checking, you are currently at the right page to find a tax agent who would provide professional help for all your tax needs/enquiries. On this page, kindly click on the “Go to site” button to know further on the company where your tax agent would come from. There is also a table on this page where you may see various companies’ address, phone number as well as their price to make it easy for you to compare.

      I hope this somewhat helps.

      Please feel free to reach out to us if you have any other enquiries.

      Thank you and have a wonderful day!

      Cheers,
      Jeni
