At RSM in Goulburn, we understand that in today's SME environment, tax considerations extend beyond mere structuring, prompting us to adopt a comprehensive 360-degree approach. Acknowledging the potential consequences of non-compliance—unexpected penalties and additional tax burdens—we prioritize a meticulous approach to tax obligations.

Our commitment goes beyond meeting obligations; we ensure that deadlines are diligently observed. Our suite of tax compliance services tailored for Goulburn businesses includes:

  • Preparation and review of income tax returns
  • Preparation and review of fringe benefits tax returns
  • Expert advice and preparation of payroll tax

From an independent and unbiased standpoint, RSM in Goulburn offers a flexible and integrated Private Client & Family Office service, meticulously designed to address your unique family wealth circumstances and vision. We consider all your needs to instil confidence and a sense of comfort in managing your affairs.

In our role as your trusted adviser, operating within the Private Client & Family Office, we serve as the central hub for the management of your tax, wealth transfer, risk management, lifestyle, and family financial reporting needs. This ensures that decisions and professional relationships crucial for safeguarding and growing your wealth are centrally managed and coordinated.

For us, building long-term relationships based on trust is paramount. We aim to be the reliable partner you can depend on to provide insights, services, and resources to assist you in managing your affairs. We believe that when our clients trust that we fully comprehend what's important to them and back it up with genuine counsel and support, they gain confidence in the choices they make.

At RSM in Goulburn, we emphasise the importance of understanding and maximising superannuation for wealth accumulation. 

Knowing where your super money is allocated is crucial for optimising returns. We guide you in structuring your investments based on your risk tolerance, considering the various risk options offered by super funds. With a wide array of funds available, taking the time to tailor a superannuation strategy that suits you is essential. For those desiring control, a self-managed super fund (SMSF) can be an attractive option, especially for business owners and individuals. As trustees and members, this option allows family involvement, enabling contributions to the SMSF's bank account. 

We offer expert advice to navigate superannuation complexities, ensuring your strategy aligns with financial goals and risk preferences for a secure retirement.

Australian business owners, spanning various sectors like primary production, manufacturing, and retail, must prioritize succession and estate planning for their businesses. 

A poorly planned succession can lead to significant consequences, including tax issues, administrative costs, strained relationships, and increased stress. Therefore, it is crucial to proactively plan for the future handover of the business. Opting for a well-thought-out succession plan brings financial and personal benefits to SME owners.

At RSM in Goulburn, our succession planning consultants specialize in facilitating a smooth transition for SME owners, whether passing the business to new owners, the next family generation, or addressing scenarios like death or incapacity. We work closely with solicitors when needed to provide expert advice on legal matters. Our aim is to ensure that business succession is well-managed, minimising challenges and maximising benefits for both current owners and their successors.

We’re more than just tax accountants.
