Yes! Absolutely! Deductions are the easiest and most prevalent tax benefit of all. Everyone is eligible for deductions of some form or another. Deductions are generally work-related expenses, such as stationary, work-specific uniforms, work tools and equipment, computers and electronics for work purpose, travel for work, and any self-educational costs. Other taxable deductions include tax agent and tax advisory fees, telephone and internet fees, and charitable donations.

Tax planning is the process of looking at one’s overall financial position, assessing their income, investments, superannuations/SMSFs, and business structure, then developing a tax minimisation strategy to a) minimise tax, b) reduce risk, and c) maximise wealth.

Tax planning is legal as long as the strategies lie within the law’s intent.

Tax planning is done in stages. At Centaur Financial Services, we follow a winning 6-step process:

  • Discovery: We discuss your personal situation and your tax planning goals
  • Analysis: We review and analyse your overall financial position and identify current gaps
  • Strategy: We devise a bespoke tax strategy to ensure a tax-efficient outcome
  • Recommendation: We discuss our recommendations and the implementation plan
  • Implementation: We implement your strategy and complete the required applications
  • Ongoing Advice: We monitor your strategy and provide ongoing advice

The main objective of tax planning is to identify gaps in one’s financial situation that can offer tax incentive benefits.

Not all tax advisors on the Gold Coast are the same. Some, like Centaur, will go the extra mile to ensure you maximise absolutely all your eligible tax reliefs; others may only tick off easy-to-secure incentives.

  • What is your investment philosophy?
  • What tax planning areas do you specialise in?
