Each year the Australian Tax Office (ATO) chooses people working certain industries to audit and Personal Tax Specialists is on hand to help those professionals with their tax returns.
For the 2009-2010 financial year, the ATO is targeting engineers, mechanics and teachers claiming large work-related expenses. This is the time when Personal Tax Specialists can step in to ensure tax returns for these people are prepared properly, lessening the headache of an audit if they are chosen.
Personal Tax Specialists prepares personal income tax returns for clients throughout Australia from its NSW South Coast base. Focusing on key professional occupations – such as travel, nursing, teaching, sales, media and real estate – Personal Tax Specialists can guide people through the tax return process because they know the tax requirements for these industries.
The business was established in 2009 by co-founders Tracey Collins and Christine Snelson. Both women are highly trained tax professionals and highlighted a need for a personal tax service for investors and professionals, Ms Collins said.
“We saw a gap in the market for tax preparation services for time-poor investors and people working in professional roles in Australia,” Ms Collins explained.
“Technology is utilised heavily in our business to ensure we provide a fast, simple and personal service to our clients direct from their home or office to our business. Although our clients don’t meet with us in person, our service is tailored to maximise convenience and provide peace of mind for our clients.
“This financial year is almost over and the ATO has advised it is targeting engineers and teachers – two occupations Personal Tax Specialists concentrates on. We will ensure our teacher clients have a professional tax return prepared so they know there is nothing to worry about if they are audited,” Ms Collins added.
Personal Tax Specialists has a strong focus on sustainability, continually working to reduce its environmental footprint and aiming to be a completely paperless office within five years.
