How to compare tax agents in Melbourne

After you've checked that the agent is registered correctly, there are three important factors in deciding which tax service you should use. These include:

  1. Do they offer the service you require? (Individual, business, trust etc.)
  2. What is their method of contact? (Entirely online, in person, over phone etc.)
  3. What are their fees?

What are some pros and cons of using a tax agent?

Pros
  • Ease. Tax can be taxing. If finance makes your head spin then a tax agent is a handy way to hand over your financial information and let the professionals do the rest.
  • Minimise errors. It’s important that you get everything completely accurate in your tax return to avoid penalties and other fees, a professional will take these concerns off your hands.
  • Maximum deductions. If you’re not sure what you can and can’t deduct, then perhaps its best to use a tax agent, who will know exactly what you will and won’t get away with.
Cons
  • Fees. The fees and commission can sometimes amount to a reasonable amount of money. If you want to avoid paying out any more than you have to then you might want to go it alone.

What questions should I ask my tax agent?

  1. Are you fully certified with the TPB?
  2. Do you have expertise with my type of return?
  3. What deductions am I entitled to?
  4. What are your fees and are there any hidden charges?
  5. What are the key dates and timings of my return?
  6. What can I do in the coming year to increase my deduction for the next tax year?

If you’re living or working in Melbourne and you’re looking for a tax agent to take your return off your hands, you’re in luck. There are a range of services available to you. Alternatively, you can complete your tax return with the help of a registered tax agent online from anywhere in Australia. Use out table above to compare your options.
