Tax Planning for the end of financial year

CVW Accounting info about tax planning

If you read the CVW Accounting blog Business Tax Planning you will have;

  1. spent time in November/December  looking over your accounts from the past six months and
  2. met with your accountant in Jan/Feb about planning for the financial year

If you missed that step, then aim to follow them at the end of this calendar year.

As the end of financial year approaches, make time to touch base with your accountant about actions to be taken before 30 June.

Why is tax planning important?

Planning is a beneficial process in order to identify where and how to reduce a business’ tax liability and therefore your tax bill.

For a simple list of what to do and what you need to know about business tax planning, see below.
