Taxation, GST & BAS

 

Forest House prepares individual, trust, and small business tax returns, ensuring that you claim every deduction that you are entitled to, so that you get the refund you deserve. Each return is carefully prepared by a professional accountant, who is up to date with the latest changes to tax laws and their application, and updated tax rulings from the Commissioner. They can also answer any Goods and Services Tax (GST), capital gains or other taxation queries. We lodge all tax returns electronically so that you receive your refund within 14 working days or less, after checking for accuracy at our office.

 

The GST is a part of business life, whether you are a sole trader or a large company. The Forest House team can attend to all of your business and GST related needs including Australian Business Number (ABN) and GST registration, and preparing and lodging Business or Instalment Activity Statements (BAS).


Accounting and Bookkeeping

 

 At Forest House, we strive to provide the highest quality accounting and bookkeeping services at the most affordable prices possible. Our advisors provide individualized services to help alleviate your financial uncertainty and stress. We offer a fixed price per month solution so you know in advance what your bookkeeping fees will be. With many years of experience, our experts have the knowledge and expertise to handle any situation.  

How do we work?

Simple. We schedule an in person or online meeting between you and your account manager to determine what your requirements are. We then agree on the fixed monthly fee and begin your accounting and bookkeeping immediately.  If you prefer an hourly rate, we can do that to.

Access and Support

Through our virtual online portal, we give you complete access to your financial records anytime and anywhere. If you have any questions, our highly trained staff is here to support you.

Peace of Mind

Most of all, we want you to feel comfortable and confident in the knowledge that you have found a partner that is dedicated to helping your business succeed. We know that you would rather focus on growing your business than doing your accounting and bookkeeping.

That’s why we are here!
