    Hi,

    Does anyone have a recommendation for a good accountant in Sydney who can help us with our unit purchase – they must be good with calculating all the tax deductions / -ve gearing mumbo jumbo! In particular, I am interested in learning how to get tax refunds throughout the year instead of shelling out lots of cash to pay mortgage / rent etc and getting a tax refund in one big lump at the end of the year – I understand this is possible?

    Cheers,
    Andy

    Nick at Strategic Wealth Management is one of the better ones around IMHO.

    Hi Andy,

    The process you are talking about is easily completed – there is no need to use an accountant for PAYG employees.

    I do mine all the time and walk through the process with other people frequently. If you have ever done your own tax return and have a depreciation report it is pretty simple.

    But in answer to your question also look at http://www.chan-naylor.com.au

    A quote from their website “I service over 200 accounting firms with specialised tax advice and Chan & Naylor is in the top 5% in technical knowledge and in the bottom 5% for fees charged. They are one of only three Accountants that I would recommend in Sydney.”- Christopher Batten Taxation Consultant

    Chris Batten is as good as they get too.

    You seem to know a lot of accountants, and recommendation for the Newcastle area.
    Thanks Garry

    Hi Garry,

    Sorry[bigeyes] no can help with Newcastle – other than to say that a good accountant doesn’t necessarily have to be around the corner.

    Simon (Mortgage Hunter) may know of someone.

    Garry, wouldn’t you like a tax deductible trip to Sydney every so often ?

    Perhaps your new accountant can only see you on Friday afternoons [biggrin]

    or perhaps first thing on a Monday morning that would necessitate you staying in a motel overnight on the Sunday night after driving down on Sunday morning?

    What you do with the rest of the time you’re in Sydney is of no interest to the taxman. [baaa]
