Are you claiming all you can?
People are often reluctant to hire an accountant because they think it’s just one more expense they could do without. But are you claiming everything back that you could be? Chances are you’re not, and then it’s a false economy to think you’re saving money by not hiring an expert to go through your books to see what they can do for you.
Streamline your business
Our team of super accounting experts don’t see book-keeping as the chore you might see it as. In fact, they relish the opportunity to work with you to find areas where you can save money, make improvements to your business and streamline processes. They’re also very good at giving advice on all the “grey areas” that people aren’t sure about.
For example, we often find that self-employed people don’t realise that if you run your business from home, you can claim the part of your house you use for your business as an expense in your tax return. You can claim any space you primarily use for your business, whether it’s a home office, garage or workshop. So this means you could be claiming back part of your household rates, insurance, landline, mobile and power bills, and even some of the interest on your mortgage. How super is that!
It’s also worth remembering to check with your financial adviser as to whether you’re covered for insurance if you work from home. Household insurance might not cover your property if you use it for work. As we’re a one-stop financial services firm, we can check all this out for you.
We’ll take care of the IRD
We also take all the stress out of dealing with the IRD because we do it for you! We’re your liaison, so you don’t need to worry about having to contact them as we do it on your behalf. We’ll also send you reminders when your tax filing is due, so you don’t even have to worry about that.
So as you sit there red-eyed, wilting in a crumpled heap and pulling out all your hair, whilst surrounded by empty coffee cups, mountains of paperwork and GST receipts, maybe it’s time to call one of our accounting superheroes to save the day
