It need not be a taxing time

By Lachlan Durling

WITH the ATO’s increased resources to investigate questionable tax claims, why not leave it to the professionals to point you in the right direction this tax time?

M+S Group Accounting offers a range of services including accounting and taxation, financial planning, self-managed super fund administration and insurance.

Serving Kyabram and district since 1966, M+S is recognised as one of the largest accounting firms in country Victoria with offices locally, in Echuca and Shepparton.

“Many of my clients prefer the peace of mind obtained from dealing with a registered tax accountant as opposed to doing it online,” M+S accountant Danielle Ireland said.

“If people need help navigating through what claims are permissible — keeping in mind the ATO are cracking down on false claims — we urge them to come in and let us achieve a good tax result while avoiding the worry of potential audits and penalties.”

“The ATO is also looking for trends in industry figures that might help them find those businesses and individuals who are claiming false expenses,” M+S accountant Ray Warren added.

As well as taking the worry out of tax time, M+S Group can help you plan for any unexpected mishaps.

“Adequate insurance cover is something most of us choose to ignore. No one likes to think about being injured, robbed, killed, or their assets being destroyed, but it is a part of life,” financial planner Ainslie Boylan said.

“M+S, through our financial planning and general insurance departments, can help with cover for all aspects of life; ranging from life, TPD, income protection, trauma and your general home and business needs.”

M+S Group services are supported by a team of qualified and experienced professionals who strive to achieve the best possible outcome for their clients.

‘Helping people build a better financial future’ is the cornerstone of their philosophy.
