How much do you charge for a tax return?
A basic individual tax return for salary and wages starts at $198 incl GST.
I can get my tax done for $100 at (insert discount accounting service here), why do you charge $198+?
We are a Chartered Firm. Ie, our accountants are tertiary qualified professionals, with post graduate qualifications, and continue with their professional development via regular lectures and other professional development opportunities. We know taxation inside out, and specialise in complex individual and business accounting services.
Discount accounting services employ Tax Agents who do not necessarily have tertiary qualifications, have completed a relatively short course (as opposed to tertiary study), though are able to process your personal tax return.
For a very basic tax return, it is more than likely more cost effective for you to use a discounted service. Once your financial situation increases in complexity, we strongly recommend seeking a suitably qualified and experienced professional Chartered or Certified Practicing Accountant.
When do tax returns need to be completed?
There are several rules around personal tax returns.
