ATO Representation

Have your problems with the Tax Office snowballed? We can help.

Our knowledge and experience with Tax Administration is the strength behind the Electra Frost Accounting practice. We know how to explain your situation and entitlements in ‘tax law language’ and can negotiate directly with the ATO on your behalf.

Have you received a letter from the ATO and don’t know what to do?

Electra Frost Accounting has successfully represented many clients and resolved their problems with the Tax Office.

Amendments and objections

If the ATO or your last accountant has made a mistake, we can find the solution which is in your best interests.

Some issues are fixed within a single meeting and phone call.

Other issues can take weeks or months to resolve, and we will keep you informed as we pursue a correct outcome for you.

We understand that it can take some time to put your affairs in order

If you have a tax debt we can help you apply for payment plans and other arrangements. Remissions of penalties and interest charges may be negotiated.

Time extensions for overdue documents may also be requested if you’re working with us to get them lodged.

Enough snowballs. Let’s make sure it doesn’t happen again.

While resolving your pressing issues with the ATO, we’ll simultaneously work with you to implement effective plans and processes to make your taxes easier to manage and greatly reduce your risks of penalties and audits going forward. 

 

Even better – tax agents’ fees are tax deductible.

ATO penalties can cost so much more than accountants’ fees, and aren’t even tax deductible.

 

Customer Testimonials

We are fantastic to work with.
But don’t just take our word for it, take theirs!

Monica Davidson

We have worked with Electra Frost Accounting for over ten years and are very happy with the service. Electra and her team have been an integral part of the journey of our business, including the growth we’ve experienced in the last few years. They have ensured that our financials are always in good shape when it comes to reporting time, of course, but I’ve also appreciated their time and patience when it comes to teaching us new systems and alerting us to better ways of managing our financial situation. We highly recommend Electra to our creative business clients, as we work exclusively with creative clientele, and will continue to do so.

Electra has been my accountant since the early 2000’s. That speaks volumes for the service she and her team provide, and for the longevity of her career in this niche market of arts tax law and accounting. Electra has long been familiar with my arts business and this has enabled her to do the very best by me over the years, her intricate knowledge of the Australian tax law has given me great comfort in knowing I will always get the fattest tax return available, with the minimum of pain and suffering. I’ve recommended Electra to many, many of my friends and they too have praised her speed and efficiency with their various businesses.

Dr Clare Milledge

Over the years my employment and my artistic practice have changed and developed and become infinitely more complex. Electra has been there to cast a light into areas unknown to me and I have always been impressed with her intricate knowledge and her deep engagement within her chosen field.
Whether it’s mortgage repayments and negative gearing, calculating HELP debt repayments or expense claims for international per diems, Electra knows exactly what to do.
Additionally, she is highly ethical and strategic when it comes to assisting her clients, she thinks long-term.
I have recommended many creative people working previously with standard accountants to Electra and those that have employed her services have been deeply thankful. Occasionally people have asked me about the costs associated with having a specialist accountant deal with my tax, but they are always negligible in perspective of what I have gained, both financially and professionally.
I now conduct all my tax dealings online via email and Skype with Electra and I couldn’t be happier. There’s no accountant I would ever more highly recommend to an artist.

I have been working with Electra and her fabulous team for over a decade now. They have always gone above and beyond to try and get the best results for both my personal and business tax returns. I highly recommend their services to any musician or music industry organisation looking to get the most out of their business.
