No matter what your plan we can advise on the appropriate structure. It may be a Company, Trust, Superannuation Fund, Partnership, Sole Trader or a combination. Our recommendation would factor key considerations such as tax minimisation, asset protection, succession, growth and costs. Christies have a strong working relationship with local banks, insurance brokers and legal practitioners which assists us in making all of this happen efficiently and effectively.

We have a proud record of minimal tax audits for our clients. We strongly believe that this is a consequence of having a strong and co-operative relationship with the Australian Taxation Office over many years.

We know that a tax audit can be a frightening, time-consuming and potentially costly exercise for clients. We have a particular focus on getting to know your business and financial affairs and providing a thorough, quality service. This enables us to prepare accurate figures, leaving you (and us) in a better position to handle a tax audit in the unlikely event that your business is selected.

At Christies, we see audit and assurance engagements not only as a compliance requirement, but also as a constructive way to assist our clients to improve their record keeping, internal control, management and reporting systems for the benefit of all stakeholders.

Our audit team work closely with you to get to know your business. We use a combination of substantive testing and analytical review techniques in conducting our audit or review of your financial records, reports and disclosures.
