    Hi all,

    I own 2 investment properties in Brisbane, and looking for an experienced tax accountant with at least 8 years of experience in Brisbane.

    How much in accounting fees would I be looking at, approximately?

    Thank you in advance.

    Similar for me is $440 per tax return. I am however looking for someone else – not based on price but other reasons.

    Hello all!

    I finally found a tax/accountant, but will keep Terryw’s information on record in case I need it.

    Re: 8 years: It is a random number, I just feel that at least around 8 years is enough for a solid experience in the field.

    Thank you

    Hi Elysium,
    Glad to hear you have found someone. Re approx cost, that is difficult to say for several reasons.

    I imagine there is some kind of hourly rate, but I haven’t heard what today’s numbers might be. And then it would surely also depend on the complexity of your set-up. e.g. how many properties you have, are each in separate Trusts or all-in-one, or in personal name only, are any Companies involved, SMSF, etc, etc.

    And one other major cost factor – do you hand him a well-completed summary/spreadsheet of your business, or a shoe-box full of receipts and invoices? His cost could change markedly, depending….

    I hope your new find works out well for you, and one day you may be able to recommend them to someone new on here,
    Benny
