Tax is a significant expense for businesses and individuals and permeates both commercial and private transactions alike. It makes commercial sense to ensure that your affairs are structured effectively from the outset to provide “sleep at night” solutions. Tax planning is best undertaken before you embark on any significant transaction, and is crucial in assisting to build your wealth or your business to remain competitive, locally and globally. Due to broad anti tax avoidance provisions at a state, federal and international level, planning has to be integrated within a dominant and meaningful commercial and business plan that is not “tax driven”.
The Mills Oakley Tax and Advisory team strives to provide you with comprehensive solutions to address not only tax implications but more importantly commercial implications. Our lawyers will give you simple to understand advice in an area of law that is over-complicated and ever changing.
Mills Oakley provides clients with the full range of taxation law services including:
The recent change in the Federal Government and the current economic client in Australia means a challenging time for tax professionals and their clients with further and significant changes to taxation laws expected over the coming years. Significant changes to the superannuation laws in recent times, in particular for self-managed superannuation funds, provide great opportunities for clients to build their wealth and structure their affairs tax effectively. In light of these changes and the current state of the Australian economy, now is the time to ensure clients are on top of their taxation issues and affairs.
Mills Oakley’s Taxation team has created a Taxation Compliance Index that tracks the amount of new tax legislation and regulation introduced by the government each month. The Taxation Compliance Index can be found here.
