Tightening the belt of the tax system

Tax & Accounting


In the Federal Budget last May, the Government announced a series of changes designed to tighten access to certain concessions within the tax system. This includes major changes to the way the main residence exemption and small business CGT concessions operate. The Government has also passed new legislation which changes the way GST is collected on certain property transactions.

This session looks at the practical implications of these changes, who might be affected and how to ensure that clients comply with the new rules.

 

 


Year-end tax planning and compliance

Tax & Accounting


Another 30 June is nearly upon us and now is the time to start thinking about year-end tax planning for clients. We take you through the detail of key tax planning strategies and how to make sure that these are implemented effectively.

A number of significant changes to the tax system are also due to commence from 1 July 2018, including the start of single touch payroll, changes to the small business depreciation rules, and new reporting rules for certain industry sectors. This session ensures you and your clients are up-to-date and ready for 1 July.

SMSF: EOFY 2018 and into 2019

Superannuation


The new event-based reporting requirements become mandatory for self managed funds from 1 July 2018. We take you through the reporting requirements imposed on your SMSF clients.

We also explore the essential end of financial year issues to cover off before it is too late, including:
  • Common SMSF year end issues to avoid
  • Finalising pensions for FY2018
  • Planning now for pensions in FY2019
  • Claiming a tax deduction for super contributions and making the most of the changes
  • Revisiting past advice around super contributions to reduce your PI risks!
  • The use of reserves in an SMSF and the ATO's latest views

 


How the accounting business
model is changing

Practice Management

 

The accounting business model has been relatively stable for over three decades. We are now in a period of change. Technology, fee compression on compliance services and succession are all having an impact. So too is the relationship between accounting and wealth advice. These are converging markets.

 

This session explores what is happening in the convergence space, the likely impact of the Royal Commission, how FASEA will affect accountants seeking to provide SMSF or broader wealth advice, and the role technology can play.

 

So, what do you say?
