Do you need an accountant for your personal or business tax returns? Rise Accountants can assist with your tax returns, done by our friendly Auckland based team of accountants.
At Rise Accountants we offer a full range of accounting and taxation services. The proactive approach of Rise Accountants ensures you receive consistent service and a solid relationship that stands the test of time.
Taxation can be a major cost to your business. Rise will work with you to minimise your tax and help you achieve your key objectives. We provide a complete service of assistance and advice in each of these areas:
Every business needs to be able to review its performance. As a minimum, accounts need to be prepared annually. These are used as a basis for determining profitability and taxable income. They can also be useful for comparing performance with the previous year, to establish the value of the company, and for taking out loans.
Being liable for tax is a sure sign that the business is making money. But there is no need to pay more tax than is needed. We can help with reducing your tax bill, making arrangements to pay it off on your terms, and arguing your case with the IRD.
Tax legislation is constantly changing, and something we frequently see when onboarding a new client is that assumptions have been made that historically were correct, but no longer are.
We ensure that we are constantly up to date with changing legislation, and its interpretations, as they occur.
We can do this for you, or we can show you how to do it. We can handle the complexities, such as GST on property sales, GST on imports, or GST on introduced assets. Where we do your GST, we can often expedite the completion of annual accounts.
We understand the IRD, we know their language, what they require for compliance, and where they are likely to concede. So if you have a problem with the IRD, contact us, and we will negotiate with them.
Plus, we have an insurance product – Audit Shield. Should the IRD come knocking and you have a policy that covers you, our costs to negotiate with the IRD will be covered by the insurer, not you.
Planning on going into business, or looking to expand the business. Rise can assist with a detailed forecast to support your application for funds. Plus, we can report actual performance against forecast.
Today, there are apps available that assist small businesses that were, before the age of online computing, only available to big business.
Accounting software is usually at the centre of these apps. The accounting app that provides a high level of integration with other apps is Xero. In our experience, Xero by itself can save a small business owner a lot of time. Bank reconciliations are easy, debtors are kept up to date with minimal fuss, and producing and filing the GST return is a breeze. Xero also has Payroll, Projects and Expense Claim functionality.
In addition to the basics in Xero, it is possible to store all of you bills and receipts in Xero, to collect payment through direct credit and credit card, to send automatic reminders for invoices due.
Third party apps can be added that simplify the workload further. For example, a tradie may want to utilise Tradify or Fergus, which helps to manage quoting, progress invoicing and task management. Or a beauty salon may want to add a booking app. Or an online retailer may choose an app such as Unleashed which will integrate with their website, process sales, manage inventory, and update Xero constantly. Rise can assist with helping you create efficiency in your business, through the strategic use of apps.
