    Taxation Services:

    Taxation Planning

    Under Australian Tax law businesses and individuals have the right to structure their financial affairs to reduce or minimize their tax obligations, this is often referred to as tax planning or tax minimization. Tax minimization is legitimate when you do it within the legal requirements.

    Wardle Partners offer a range of strategies to help minimize your tax, some of these strategies can include:

    1. Deferring income
    2. Rolling money into Superannuation
    3. Co-contributions to Superannuation
    4. Distribution of income for business owners
    5. Business deductions for bad debts, obsolete stock, slow moving stock, maintenance costs or education costs.

    Fringe Benefits Tax

    Since 1986 the Australian Government has taxed employers on most non-cash benefits they provide to their employees in respect of employment. The tax is known as Fringe Benefits Tax. The tax is levied on the employer and not the employee, however, it is common for the employer to pass on the tax to the employee in salary sacrifice arrangements.

    Generally, a fringe benefit is a non-cash benefit paid to an employee. The benefit may be in addition to a salary or the only benefit provided to an employee. The fringe benefit can benefit an individual, their spouse or their child/ren.

    The rate corresponds to the top marginal income tax rate for individuals, including the Medicare Levy (47% for the Fringe Benefits Tax year ending 31 March 2019, 2020, 2021, 2022 and 2023).

    Payroll Tax

    Details are provided on the Payroll Tax Rates and Thresholds page. Wardle Partners can assist your understanding and attending to your payroll tax reporting obligations.

    I thought I should take the time to publicly thank Mark at Wardle Accounting Caloundra after I had the pleasure of interacting with Mark and his team again now in the pursuit of relieving my ongoing headache (called catching up on my late a overdue taxes returns ) and found Mark to be be a lighthouse in a storm ..he is good natured..easy to speak with.. knowlegeable..flexible but resilient...sensitive to peoples needs but also no fool ...he has a natural understanding of real life issues that affect us all ..and from my observations he is a responsible and good husband to his wife and father to his 3 girls..and through all of the tough personal issues in he and his family's life and the the ongoing pressures and responsibilities of keeping a business running as smoothly as can be expected through all the hiccups such as pandemics and property and stock market booms and busts ..changes of governments and regulations etc..including difficult clients ..and staff changes etc through the decades he and his wife have been in business ...he still manages to have a warm welcoming smile and makes time where he can to help people....I think the world would be a better place if we could manufacture a few more like thanks to Mark..his wife Nicki and the team at Wardle Accountants Caloundra ...cheers Wayne Reid .Small business owner ..Caloundra Qld..2023 ..

    Anthony and Wardle Partners has been a huge asset for our business, we are overwhelmed with the service, professionalism and friendly nature of Anthony and his team. Our business has benefitted massively from his help. We couldn't ask for a better accountant!
    Neil Tarlinton
    I’m disabled with a traumatic brain injury and a lot of businesses take advantage of me because of this. Wardle has bent over backwards to help me with complex Tax and Self Managed Fund Advice and Reports. They are always polite, friendly and welcoming and can take my banter without getting offended. Their prices are reasonable but their service is on a whole other level(amazing). I couldn’t recommend a more professional, affordable and reliable accounting firm.
    Mark and the team at Wardle Partners Accounting have been a pleasure to deal with over the last 3 years. The service they provide is exceptional and staff are knowledgeable, professional and go above and beyond to assist. I would highly recommend Mark and his team to anyone looking for an accounting firm that actually cares about its clients. Thank you for all your help. Your support has meant a lot to me.
    Krzysztof Rososzczuk
