Businesses in Southbank

17 Jul 2012

Be it a simple tax return or a complex company re-structuring, Docklands’ Tax Aid can look after your accountancy needs.
Colin Linke, a partner at Bentley Partners, which acquired Tax Aid last year, focuses on business strategy. But he is surrounded by agents, who are doing local residents’ and workers’ tax returns.
“We specialise in strategy, starting from doing basic tax returns through to full-on company structuring,” Mr Linke says.
“The biggest part of our practice is looking after businesses – from start-up right through to multi-nationals.”
Mr Linke re-iterates the practice’s website message: “With the already proven skills of the existing Bentley Partners team we are excited to add the deep taxation experience of the Tax Aid team.  The combined business can now offer you every form of tax return, tax planning and ATO compliance requirement.” 
Mr Linke, who grew up in Melbourne’s west and studied accountancy at RMIT, says Tax Aid’s tax agents are flat out at this time of year, doing returns for clients but will always accommodate new clients.
He says the tax laws change every year.
“The government is not giving as much money back this financial year, which is even more reason to see a tax specialist such as us,” Mr Linke says.
“We are local, conveniently located on Bourke St, near Etihad Stadium, and we are not expensive.”
Mr Linke says Tax Aid “rolls out a whole communications strategy each year to keep our clients updated”.
“Our tax agents have an average of 20 years experience in doing tax returns.”
They can also help you with trusts, superannuation funds, rental properties, overseas income, pension implications and annuity management.
As their website emphasises, it pays to organise your tax at the start of any investment.
“All your investments need to be viewed from a tax angle also.  So before you start buying, selling, altering any of your investments give us a call, let’s do the tax planning upfront.
“Trying to adjust investments or divestments after the fact can be extremely complex and costly when you consider the tax.”
Tax Aid is at 744 Bourke St, Docklands. Call 9600 1100, email info@bentleypartners.com.au or visit www.taxaid.com.au
