Tax Returns are of many kinds and so are the taxes too. Some of the more common ones are listed below:

An Individual, a partnership, a company, a trust, an SMSF or any other business structure are all obliged to report income and pay taxes arising from such incomes by lodging annual tax returns.

GST/BAS/BUSINESS ACTIVITY STATEMENTS:

This tax return is also called a GST tax return or a Business Activity Statement (BAS).Generally such tax return  services are only required  for businesses and traders that are registered for GST. Regardless of whether you make a profit or a loss from trading you are obliged to collect and pay GST on sales to the ATO. This reporting period could be monthly, quarterly or annually. Some businesses are required by law to be registered for GST while others have an option if they are below the threshold. We provide tax return services for both the above options whether it is by law or voluntary registration.

Investment Property Tax Returns:

Investment properties could be negatively geared or positively geared subject to the tax return preparation.  Mostly we come across negatively geared property portfolios where losses arising from Investment properties are recouped against other assessable income for the same year. We have gained expertise in tax return services with regards to any kind of investment property scenarios and every year we lodge 100’s of Investment property tax returns. The loss arising from a negatively geared investment property reduces the annual income of the owner by the amount of loss. The below example will explain this scenario in more detail.

Rental Income:             $1000pmx12       =                             $12000

Gross Income                                                    =                             $12000

Less:

Agent Fees                        $70pmX12           =                             $840

Depreciation                                                      =                             $5000

Interest on Loan                                               =                             $13000

Other Expenses                                                  =                             $3000

Total Expenses                                                  =                             $21840

Net Loss from owning the property         =                             (-9840)

($12000-$21840 = -9840 (loss))

If an individual owns the above property and is on a salary of $80,000 his taxable income will be reduced by $9840 to $71160 ($80,000-$9840), and he will have to pay tax on $71160 instead of $80,000. $80,000 wage is on a 32.5% tax bracket which means the refund arising from the Investment property will be close to $3200.

 

Capital Gains Tax (CGT):

When you make a profit from the sale of an asset that appreciated in value over time a CGT event occurs and hence an income needs to be reported and tax paid. The tax is paid on the appreciated value after reducing any applicable concessions. A CGT event could be triggered in many ways. The obvious ones are from the sale of a real estate, sale of business and sale of shares. There are numerous concessions available depending on what structure the asset was held by. It is this structure in combination with the overall scenario and circumstances surrounding such an event that will determine how much Capital Gains Tax would need to be paid.

On the other there could be circumstances where there is a loss from the sale of an asset and in such scenarios a loss will be reported on the Tax returns. To deal with any of the above situation you can take advantage of tax return services provided by our highly skilled professionals.
