At F5, we believe that the right financial guidance can transform individuals and businesses, turning potential tax burdens into opportunities for growth and security. Imagine the impact if you could save an additional $10k, $20k, $50k, or even $100k in taxes each year.

Can’t recommend F5 Accountants enough. They helped me with my tax return and I received way more back than I expected! 11/10

Thank you!


Justin was very easy to talk to, he took the time to get to know me and my situation before giving me any advice. The advice I was given was fantastic, not only did he help me get more on my return than I could have ever imagined he also gave me some tax planning advice for my newly established business. I have referred all of my friends and family, I think everyone deserves an accountant with this level of professionalism.

For the past few years I’ve been using Justin for my tax returns and I don’t think I will be stopping any time soon. Justin makes the daunting task of tax work a breeze and really helped me maximise my return to something I did not think was possible to achieve. I highly recommend F5 accountants and Justin to anyone looking for their next accountant.

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. GST Returns: Due quarterly, on the 28th day of the month following the end of the quarter, or monthly for businesses with a turnover above a certain threshold.
  2. Income Tax Returns: Due by October 31st if lodging yourself, but businesses using a tax agent can have extended deadlines up to May 15th of the following year.

You need to register for GST if your business has a GST turnover of $75,000 or more annually ($150,000 or more for non-profit organisations) or if you provide taxi or limousine travel for passengers in exchange for a fare as part of your business, regardless of your GST turnover.

As a sole trader in Australia, your business income is treated as your personal income, and you’re taxed at individual tax rates. You can claim deductions for most business expenses and may need to pay quarterly PAYG instalments towards your expected tax liability. It’s also essential to be aware of the potential need to register for GST if your turnover exceeds the threshold.

Yes, if you run a small business from home in Australia, you can claim deductions for the portion of home expenses related to conducting your business. This includes costs such as electricity, internet, phone expenses, and the depreciation of office furniture and equipment. You must keep detailed records to substantiate these claims.

The choice of accounting software depends on your business needs, but popular options include Xero and QuickBooks. These platforms are user-friendly, support Australian tax and payroll requirements, and offer cloud-based solutions for easy access to financial data. Australian accountants are typically well-versed in both software.

Ensuring compliance involves staying informed about the tax laws relevant to your business, maintaining accurate and up-to-date records, lodging tax returns and other reports on time, and possibly consulting with a professional accountant or tax advisor for complex matters. Regularly reviewing your business’s compliance with a professional can help you navigate changes in tax legislation and minimise risks.
