Since the world changed in February/ March, a lot of people have done a lot of talking: how we should do this, the best way to do that. Everyone seems to have a lot to say.
It’s a bloody confusing time for us business owners. With seemingly daily updates to rules and guidelines it’s tough to keep up… while we all also try to keep our businesses running.
Over the last month, we’ve done a lot of listening at Tax Assure. We’ve heard from many clients, as well as our partners and referrers about the challenges they (and their clients) are facing.
This is what we’ve been hearing:
Frustration navigating the ATO landscape of support, deferral options and stimulus measures. It feels confusing and complex.
It feels like a struggle to actually engage with the ATO: long phone queues**, slightly differing advice, and a perceived lack of clarity around eligibility and options.
It’s an unfeasibly time-consuming process, especially while trying to keep a business afloat.
Is “everything on hold” actually the right option? How will things play out when the ATO reverts to business-as-usual?
So how can we help?
In response to what clients and partners have told us, we’ve created a new service. It’s called QuickHold. It’s very simple to engage with. And it’s cashflow-friendly in cost. We will:
Review your tax debt position (historical, current, potential)
Apply to place ATO accounts “on hold” – if that’s the best course of action. And if it isn’t, we’ll discuss other options
Deliver a report detailing current (and likely) tax debt position, including recommendations to optimise the next 3-6 months
With QuickHold, you’re back in control. You can look ahead with a plan in place.
Get in contact if you or your clients would like a simple and cost-effective way to take this problem away. There is more info here. Or you can call us on 1300 952 295 or drop us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We’d love to help.
** we totally sympathise with the ATO. They’ve had to ramp up super-fast and are doing an amazing job. We speak to them daily, we have direct contact numbers. So that’s a good reason to talk to us about QuickHold, for starters!
