Anyone who has experience dealing with a government agency can tell you about their mixed feelings dealing with it. Dealing with a large bureaucracy can be frustrating at times and seem to have little to no progression. Many individuals find it difficult to communicate with the Tax Office because they are unfamiliar with the process.

Being represented is not only important but is also helpful. Many benefits come from having a tax agent speak on your behalf. As tax professionals, we have a variety of resources available to use to help resolve any tax issue faster than you would be able to do yourself. We can help you with tax debts, payment arrangements, late lodgment penalties, PAYG instalment downwards variations, bungled assessments and numerous other problems that can occur in the tax lodgment process. Whether we prepared the tax return or not, we offer the same services to anyone who appoints us as their tax agent.
