GST/BAS/BUSINESS ACTIVITY STATEMENTS:
Generally, tax return services for GST or BAS tax returns are only required for businesses and traders that are registered for GST. Regardless of whether you make a profit or a loss from trading, you are obliged to collect and pay GST on all sales to the ATO. This reporting period could be monthly, quarterly or annually. Some businesses are required by law to be registered for GST, while others have an option to register for GST or not if they are below the threshold. We provide tax return services for both of the above options, whether it is by law or by voluntary registration.
Investment Property Tax Returns:
Investment properties could be negatively geared or positively geared depending on the preparation of the tax return. We have gained expertise in tax return services with regards to any kind of investment property scenario and every year we lodge hundreds of investment property tax returns. Most of the time we come across negatively geared property portfolios, where losses arising from investment properties are recouped against other assessable income for the same year. The loss arising from a negatively geared investment property reduces the annual income of the owner by the amount of loss. The example below will explain this scenario in more detail.
Rental Income: $1000/month x12 = $12000
Gross Income = $12000
Agent Fees $70/month x12 = $840
Depreciation = $5000
Interest on Loan = $13000
Other Expenses = $3000
Total Expenses = $21840
Net Loss from owning the property = (-$9840)
($12000-$21840 = -9840 (loss))
If an individual owns the above property and is on a salary of $80,000, his taxable income will be reduced by $9,840 to $71,160 ($80,000-$9840) and he will have to pay tax on $71,160 instead of $80,000. An $80,000 wage is on a 32.5% tax bracket, which means the refund arising from the investment property will be close to $3,200.
Capital Gains Tax (CGT):
When you make a profit from the sale of an asset that has increased in value over time, a CGT event occurs, so the income needs to be reported and tax paid. The tax is paid on the appreciated value after reducing any applicable concessions. A CGT event could be triggered in many ways. The obvious ones are from the sale of a real estate, sale of a business and sale of shares. There are numerous concessions available depending on what structure the asset was held by. It is this structure in combination with the overall scenario and circumstances surrounding such an event that will determine how much Capital Gains Tax will need to be paid.
On the other hand, there could be a circumstance in which there is a loss from the sale of an asset, so in this case a loss will be reported on the tax returns. To deal with any circumstances like this, you can take advantage of tax return services provided by our highly skilled professionals.
