You are sitting in the shade today because someone planted a tree a long time ago….
Sometimes people ask us: "Do you work for the tax office or your clients?"
And the answer is: "We work for our clients of course"
Walsh Accounting's driving purpose is to help our clients meet their business and family's goals – help build a strong foundation for yourself and your families future. Meeting your tax and compliance obligations is just one small part of that journey.
'A goal without a plan is just a wish'
'Failing to plan is planning to fail'
'Forearmed is forewarned'
We have all heard these proverbs – but it does not take away that we know them to be true. So why is it that we do not heed their message?
Tax is not the bad guy, tax it is not the enemy – Tax is a part of doing business like any other essential expense such as electricity or water.
Of course we want to manage and minimise these costs as much as possible – just as we plan and put in place measures to reduce our water and electricity usage, so too can we put in place measures to reduce our tax.
Tax planning is a great way to identify and empower yourself that you have put your business and family in the best possible position come the end of the financial year. Leaving your tax management to the last minute, come your lodgement deadline, leaves you with very few options which you may find uncomfortable and unpalatable.
Be proactive - Plant the seed so your family can enjoy the shade in the future – make an appointment with Walsh Accounting to explore your tax planning options before the 30 June 2017.
