This year it is vital to get everything together and see a tax professional given all of the changes we have seen due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The support provided by the government during this period will vary massively depending on your individual circumstances, and there is no ‘one size fits all’ method for your tax return. The Crest Accounting team encourage individuals to seek informed advice from a trained and trusted accountant to minimise the risk of mistakes. The team at Crest understand the effects of any COVID-19 support you may have received. The team also knows exactly what you can claim, and what records you must keep, and will advise the best way to do this.

When engaging a Registered Tax Agent, you receive the benefit of an extended time period to lodge your tax return, with most returns lodged through an agent not due until 15 May. In addition, you will be able to claim the costs of your tax agent fees as a deduction in your next years’ return. You also gain the peace of mind of knowing that your tax return has been prepared by a tax professional.

Crest have a team of experienced accountants across our Newcastle, East Maitland, and Nelson Bay offices, who are ready to meet with you, so please call us on 02 4933 3466 to make an appointment today.

Remote Tax return option:
Given the current COVID-19 restrictions and potential health implications, we also offer a remote tax lodgement service, using a combination of phone, teleconfrencing, and email. Please let us know the most suitable option for yourself and your situation when booking your appointment.
