Why should a small-to-medium business use a professional accountant?

Expert advice
Scott & Co are small business focused, so we understand the world you’re working in, and the difficulties and complexities you deal with daily. In order to give your business the best chance of lasting success, it needs to be structured appropriately, to be as tax efficient as possible. This way it maximises growth potential and also enhances the value of the business.
Tax regulations, by their nature, are complex and continually changing. We make it our business to be aware of the latest regulations to ensure that our clients receive the maximum return while being totally compliant.
Save money
It’s easy to think that engaging the services of an accountant will cost you money, and that you’re going to be better off financially if you just file your tax returns yourself.
It’s easy to think. Unfortunately, you’d be wrong!
When you use a professional accountant you do pay a fee for the service you receive, but the likelihood is you will also receive a much larger tax bill.
The difference is usually more than enough to cover any cost that you may incur by hiring an accounting professional to handle your taxes for you.
The reality is, when you do your taxes yourself, you’re usually losing – not saving – money because of it.

What are the benefits of using a tax accountant?

Tax accountants dedicate their lives to the tax profession – they understand the tax laws and how the tax systems operate.
They know what deductions you can take advantage of and can likely help you in deducting a lot of money from your annual tax bill, potentially saving you thousands of dollars.
A good tax accountant can:
> Help you find deductions that you didn’t even know existed.
> Learn how to organise your files for next year’s tax return.
> Allow you to pay any owed taxes the following year because you are registered with a tax agent.
> Help you learn how to maximise your finances and always be safe, following all of the rules of the ATO.
> Allow you to avoid the stress of tax season.
