Frequently asked questions

Location and Hours

Where is your office located?

We are centrally located in the city of Wollongong. Our address is Level 4, 166 Keira Street. We are on the corner of Keira and Market Streets, directly opposite the Illawarra Hotel, and diagonally opposite Meakin's Jewellers.

Where can I park?

There is onstreet parking around the area, though it is paid metered parking. Alternativey, we suggest entering the GPT (shopping centre) carpark via the Regent Street entrance, and parking anywhere in there. Parking starts at $3.50, though combine it with a grocery shop of $20 or more in Coles and your first 90 minutes will be free.

What are your opening hours?

Our office is open Monday to Friday from 8.30am - 5.30pm. We do not open on weekends.


How much do you charge for a tax return?

A basic individual tax return for salary and wages starts at $198 incl GST. Our costs will change depending on complexity, and we will provide a quote upfront. Please call us on 02 4244 4054 to discuss your situation.

I can get my tax done for $100 at (insert discount accounting service here), why do you charge $198+?

We are a Chartered Firm. Ie, our accountants are tertiary qualified professionals, with post graduate qualifications, and continue with their professional development via regular lectures and other professional development opportunities. We know taxation inside out, and specialise in complex individual and business accounting services.

Discount accounting services employ Tax Agents who do not necessarily have tertiary qualifications, have completed a relatively short course (as opposed to tertiary study), though are able to process your personal tax return.

For a very basic tax return, it is more than likely more cost effective for you to use a discounted service. Once your financial situation increases in complexity, we strongly recommend seeking a suitably qualified and experienced professional Chartered or Certified Practicing Accountant.


When do tax returns need to be completed?

There are several rules around personal tax returns. 1. If you are completing your own personal income tax return (ITR) via your MyGov account, it needs to be completed and submitted by midnight on the 31st of October following the end of the financial year. If you miss this deadline, you will be required to lodge your ITR through a registered Tax Agent. 2. If you are lodging your ITR via a Tax Agent, and you lodged your previous ITR by the required deadline, you have until the 15th of May to lodge. 3. If your previous ITR was lodged late, then regardless of whether you are using a Tax Agent, you are required to lodge by the 31st of October following financial year end. There are other exceptions for some individuals, including high income earners. Call us on 02 4244 4054 to discuss.
