Frequent Asked Questions

The role of an accountant for your business is one of the most important. Gone are the days where you should just be speaking with your accountant once a year about your tax return. You should be working with your accountant year-round across the full suite of accounting services, including business plan and structure, advisory board, tax compliance, self-managed super funds, as well as your business tax returns.

A good accountant should be a part of your business journey, and they should know and understand your business. With this knowledge, you’ll create a powerful working relationship that will help you achieve your business goals.

The best way to choose an accountant is to start having conversations about accountants. Chat to fellow business owners to find out about their accountant, meet new people at networking events, or start approaching accounting firms.
Some things you should consider when selecting your accountant:

  • Size of their accounting business: There is a misconception that accountants from big firms are better, but like all things, there are pros and cons to both. Their experience is more important than the number of employees in the firm.
  • Accessibility: It’s important to make sure you always have a point to contact to answer any queries you have in a timely manner. At Carbon, we have a large team of accountants, who are supported by client liaison managers to ensure all queries can be dealt with in times when accountants are in meetings. We also use online accounting software with a dedicated client portal that will give you access to your account data anytime, on any device, in any location.
  • Experience: How long as the accountant been successfully operating?
  • Qualifications: Aside from tertiary qualifications in accounting and tax (which are the bare minimum), you should look for an accountant who has developed their skills by gaining either a CA (Chartered Accountant) or CPA (Certified Practicing Accountant).
  • Cost: The price of an accountant can vary significantly depending on what services you require. It’s a good idea to canvas a few accountants to get an idea of pricing for what you need. Don’t always go for the cheapest; the advice and work done by an accountant can have a huge effect on the performance of your business.
  • Personality: Last, but not least, you should seek an accountant with whom you can develop a great relationship. You’ll be working together closely, and communicating often, so you need to find the best fit for you.

Ready to transform your business through proactive accounting?

Are you aware of your reporting obligations to the Australian Securities & Investments Commission (ASIC)?

A company is viewed as a separate legal entity, which is great for asset protection but unfortunately comes with a significant amount of extra reporting to the ASIC that’s required.

ASIC want to know everything about the shareholders’ address, birth history, residence and the financial position of the company itself.

If you’re not familiar with, or trained to complete these obligations, you may miss important deadlines and find the additional administration taking up more of your time that you have available.

By working with Carbon, you’ll be able to put these tasks into our capable hands and know they are being completed correctly, and on time.

To ensure you remain compliant with your obligations, we can help with:

  • Fulfilling all ASIC lodgment requirements.
  • Completing annual reviews.
  • Maintaining company records.
  • Preparation and filing of Directors Meeting Minutes.
  • Creation and lodgment of company share changes.
  • Processing company de-registrations.
