Technology Financial Reporting

Tax advice, compliance and advisory services

If your technology company is a start-up or invests heavily in research and development, there are several tax incentives you can leverage to help increase cashflow. In addition to research and development incentives, there are a range of state government tax incentives and concessions which may be available to start-ups and small businesses, which we can assist in unlocking.

In general, tax laws are also difficult to interpret – particularly for organisations that deal with overseas entities and need to consider transfer pricing and hybrid mismatch rules. This is especially relevant for ICT companies where relationships or partnerships with international vendors is common, and penalties for non-compliance can be unexpectedly severe. 

When you partner with RSM for financial reporting and tax advice, we get to know your business inside and out.

This allows us to effectively consult with you on:

  • the best tax structure
  • tax minimisation strategies
  • compliance assurance
  • accurate GST record keeping and reporting
  • cross-border transactions

Where your ICT business requires an audit of financial statements, we follow a proprietary auditing methodology that is designed to uncover key business risks and develop effective controls to mitigate them.  

If you are considering a merger, acquisition or disposal we can also provide tax due diligence, consulting on finance, strategies to optimise cash flow, and identification of tax risks.
