Take the worry out of tax

Whitsunday Times - - ADVERTISING FEATURE -

IT’S a time of year that many peo­ple dread but it needn’t be some­thing that you lose sleep over.

Ac­coun­tancy Plus Whit­sun­day has been op­er­at­ing in the Whit­sun­days since 1985 and of­fers to take the worry out of tax time.

Part­ners Steve Diez and Chris­tene Dev­ery have been in busi­ness at their Is­land Drive of­fices for 15 years and know all the tricks to help you get the big­gest tax re­fund pos­si­ble.

They also pride them­selves on guid­ing the client through the process lead­ing up to tax time.

“We tend to make the client re­laxed by ask­ing what we hope are the right ques­tions,” Chris­tene said. “From the pro­fes­sional de­vel­op­ment we have, it just helps to make the process as re­laxed as pos­si­ble.”

Af­ter mak­ing an ap­point­ment to dis­cuss your tax re­turn you will be asked to bring along sup­port­ing doc­u­men­ta­tion, in­clud­ing in­come state­ments, re­ceipts of tax de­ductible pur­chases, and de­tails on any rental prop­er­ties.

“We will try to max­imise de­duc­tions,” Steve said.

“There may be de­duc­tions they may not even be aware of and that is where we come in and sug­gest the avail­abil­ity of fur­ther de­duc­tions.”

And if you have trou­ble keep­ing ac­cu­rate fi­nan­cial records, Steve said not to worry. He said peo­ple should come in with as much or as lit­tle as they could and APW would sort it out.

“That’s the main ad­van­tage of com­ing to us,” he said.

Chris­tene said APW helped the client achieve the best pos­si­ble out­come, which ul­ti­mately meant more money in your hip pocket when your tax cheque ar­rived in the mail.

The team of five cer­ti­fied prac­tis­ing ac­coun­tants at APW are all long term em­ploy­ees who en­deav­our to foster pos­i­tive re­la­tion­ships with clients based on trust.

The team at APW is on hand five days a week in Can­non­vale to help you at tax time.

And for work­ers sub­mit­ting a tax re­turn for the 2016/17 fi­nan­cial year, pa­per­work needs to be sub­mit­ted by Oc­to­ber 31.
