Meet the tax planning team

We have worked with Liston Newton's Business Accountants and Advisory Team for over a decade. During that time, our business has grown substantially both organically and through purchases. This wouldn’t have been possible without Liston Newton Advisory to assist with our business planning, providing proactive advice and ensuring our accounts were always compliant in a complex and volatile industry.

Liston Newton's Business Accountants analysed our financial and business situation and helped us implement strategies to improve our position. Their strategies turned our business from making a loss, to recording a 6-month net profit of 36 per cent. And we are now on track to show a 240 per cent increase in turnover over the next financial year.

Liston Newton helped us move our accounting over to Xero. A Business Accountant managed the set up and training so we felt comfortable with the software. We now have all our processes streamlined which gives us improved visibility of our business performance. This has allowed us to open 2 more stores without a significant increase in administration effort.

Frequently asked questions

How do I minimise tax?

There are various ways to minimise tax, some common methods include:

  • Super contributions
  • Prepayment of expenses
  • Buying assets which are deductible

Your accountant can help you determine which tax minimisation option are appropriate for your business.

Should I contribute to super?

Contributing to your super is a great way to minimise tax and fund your retirement in a tax free environment. The maximum deductible amount an individual can contribute to super is $25,000 per year. The tax rate in super is 15 per cent, which is normally lower than the tax rate personally.

How do I plan for my tax bill?

It's always important to prepare well in advance. We do this by way of planning meetings with our clients. We also explain the tax consequences and timing with clients who are new to business. Setting up provision accounts is also a great idea.

Why do I need to do tax planning?

Tax planning is very important as it gives you an opportunity to minimise tax before it is too late. You can maximise the return from your business by minimising the tax. We also ensure your tax plan is compliant with ATO requirements.

What’s involved in tax planning?

We meet with our clients to run through the year to date actual figures, add in an estimate of the budgeted income and expenses and project what the profit and loss, and tax position will be for the full financial year.

We discuss tax minimisation strategies with our clients and show you the tax savings that can be achieved in the meeting.
