A new business client came to us after becoming fed up with the large tax bills they were
getting each year. It turns out this client was trading in trust structure. Although this
structure suited their business when they first began trading, the business had experienced
considerable growth over the years, and a trust was no longer the most appropriate trading
structure for them. The client had discussed restructuring the business with their previous
accountant, but the stamp duty and capital gains tax concerns outweighed the benefits.
Upon discussing the problem with us, we were able to restructure the clients business in a
way that resulted in negligible stamp duty and capital gains tax, whilst still achieving a
structure that saved the business $120K tax in the first year.
After coming from a large accounting firm it was a breath of fresh air dealing with Dan from Hedland Accounting. He has exceeded and surpassed all expectations. I would highly recommend Dan and his staff. He can easily convert complex taxation to Aussie layman’s terms and we love the fact he is local.
Dan contacts us when grants are available for Hedland businesses. He got us a $20K grant to help buy a new truck for our business. I spoke to my mates about it and their accountant didn’t even know about the grants. That’s why I use a local accountant. We are soon going to apply for another $20K for a bobcat.
Dan Collins has looked after all of our business & personal tax work for the last 5 years. Dan has always provided the best advice and service possible that you could wish to have when running your own business. Nothing is too much trouble and Dan is always available to provide assistance in a professional and courteous manner. I would not hesitate to recommend Hedland Accounting and Finance to friends and colleagues.
Since we transferred from using an accountant in Perth, Hedland Accounting have really done great things for us. Their local knowledge has been invaluable. They just know how Hedland works.
Dan is a very informative and professional accountant. He has worked extremely hard by helping to get our business back on track after having a bad experience from another accountant. For this, we will be forever grateful for his time and efforts. He has a strong work ethic that is evident in the way he deals with his clients and the knowledge he is willing to share. Thanks heaps Dan and the Hedland Accounting team!
We like that we can check in with Dan before making the big decisions. He helps us make the right decision the first time and explains everything until we understand it.
