Set yourself up for a great start to the new financial year

Welcome to the 2021/2022 financial year. There’s no better time than the start of a new financial year to help you focus on the finances for your business. The new tax year has started and the work on end-of-year tax returns has begun. Our team will be in contact with information requirements to progress this essential activity and ensure we get your returns done in the most efficient manner. Remember we require you to have all your information with us before we can start your work. We appreciate your assistance in gathering everything we need.

Here are a few tips to help start the new financial year on the right foot – review your investment portfolio, revisit your financial goals, rethink risk, reassess insurance needs and coverage, and review super contributions. We have also put together some reminders and highlights to help you in planning for post 30 June here.

This month we discuss the most recent legislative updates you need to be across for the new financial year, and also what you need to organise for your business in regards to the recent superannuation changes. We also highlight the challenge of digital transformation and how it is imperative for all businesses in 2021. The road to transformation is different for each business, and we all have a valuable opportunity, to leverage technology to deliver a cutting-edge user experience for our customers. Read how here.

Setting up your own business is exciting, but can also be challenging if you’re not prepared or have not sought the correct legal and accounting advice. The team at Results Legal, together with Advivo, will discuss what businesses need to look at to ensure the business is set up correctly, and once established, how to expand or check in to ensure your business grows with the correct structure. Importantly we will identify common problems that an early set up may have missed and should be corrected for both tax effectiveness and risk management.

Here’s to a successful 2022 financial year!

Sincerely

Leon Stephan
Managing Partner
