Taxation Advice & Planning


Taxes can sometimes be a burden, but their impact both on individuals and businesses can be minimised through careful planning and preparation. With tax laws changing at an unprecedented pace, it's more important than ever to keep yourself up to date with the latest advice.


Our objective is to use every legitimate means to minimise the tax you pay at the end of each financial year, through:

  • General tax advisory services for all entities

  • Preparation and lodgement of income tax returns, fringe benefits tax and capital gains tax.

  • Preparation of Financial Statements and Management Reports.

  • Structuring and tax planning.


Busineses Support


An external and impartial opinion about the performance of a business can be very beneficial. Statham Cheesman can analyse your business, help plan for the future, and set and compare budgets to actual results achieved.

We can help you with:

  • Business evaluations and planning 

  • Operational financial reviews

Self Managed Superannuation


Self Managed Superannuation Funds can be a great way to maximise your funds in retirement, but the legislative requirements placed on trustees are very strict. Statham Cheesman can advise on issues relating to specific legislative requirements as well as completing all the relevant returns.


We assist many clients to establish and manage their Superannuation Funds, meet statutory obligations and help superannuation to be an effective taxation and investment option.


Cash Flows & Budget Projections


Cash flows are critical to monitor on a monthly basis to ensure all targets are being achieved. It is often much more difficult to correct cash flow problems once they have become apparent in your bank account balance.  The GST regime has now put additional pressures on cash flow.


We can work with you to establish and monitor realistic budgets to help you control your cash flow.  Our reports are in formats that are accepted by external financiers and banks.


GST Support & Advice


Statham Cheesman can research and report on the various intricacies of the GST legislation as well as offer a support role to ensure clients meet their GST and PAYG obligations.


We can also help you with systems implementation, technical advice & the preparation and lodgement of BAS, IAS and Annual GST returns.
