Accurate Tax Return

Accurate tax return

Do you know what it takes to prepare an accurate tax return?

As a successful accounting practice CVW Accounting has a positive relationship with the ATO and a firm understanding of how to prepare an accurate tax return.

For your information and calendar, the ATO deadline for tax return completion and submission is 31 October.

In the months before this deadline, CVW Accounting clients provide the information required for our team to complete their tax returns.

With the regular tax time work and activities that occur in our office we thought it appropriate to reiterate;

  • what it takes to prepare a tax return and
  • why clients keep choosing our services, instead of doing it themselves

We have each provided our perspective below for your information (and delight);

Office Manager – Jo Erhart

Our Office Manager, Jo Erhart who has been with us for more than 10 years described CVW Accounting as friendly, efficient and easily contactable.

“The service we provide makes clients feel relaxed about the CVW Accounting team taking care of their taxation affairs,” Jo said.

“Our preparation process makes all the difference for the team to complete an accurate tax return. Our clients know they are getting the best refund possible.”

Senior Accountant – Mark Chong

CVW Accounting Senior Accountant Mark Chong explains how we provide a detailed checklist to clients outlining the information we require to complete your tax return accurately.

“We are efficient at what we do,” Mark shared. “We make sure all available claims are made.

“We’re a small firm and as such we provide a more personal service. The accountant our clients deal with also does the work. This means we know the ins and outs of our client’s financial affairs, whether it’s business or personal.

“Also, we provide tax planning for clients going forward. Our understanding of our client’s business’ means we can provide tax reduction strategies most clients aren’t aware of. This and our ability to provide advice on the financial operations of the business, is what sets us apart from our competition.”

Accountant – Ami Xu

CVW Accountant Ami Xu has more than 10-years of experience under her belt. Ami believes a sound knowledge of tax legislation changes and updated tax issues is what it takes to prepare an accurate tax return.

“When people ask why they should choose CVW Accounting instead of preparing their tax return themselves I ask them about the value of their time,” Ami explained.

“The time value of money matters. So, if you are time poor it just makes sense to have someone do the ground work for you.

“I also ask people how computer savvy they are? E-tax filing is all the rage however if you’re uncomfortable with e-tax, let us prepare it for you.

“If you lodge through a tax agent, provided you have a good lodgement history, instead of the 31 October lodgement deadline you get an extension until 15th May the following year.

Managing Director – Stephen Vining

The final words are from our Managing Director Stephen Vining. He is proud to say CVW Accounting provides a personal yet detailed service to all clients.

“As highly experienced accountants and tax agents, our clients get the benefit of both worlds,” Stephen stated.

“We specialise in taxation knowledge as many agents do. We also provide sound and timely business advise and knowledge.

“When preparing client tax returns, we often identify items that may not have been considered or that clients are unaware of implications. It may be an equipment lease, a buy decision or the importance of claim deduction timing.

“This level of service and attention to detail cannot be found online and is why our clients keep coming back.”
