Higgins Wood & Associates has operated as an independent professional CPA accounting firm in Toowoomba Queensland since 1982.
It proudly serves clients employed in retail, automotive, primary production, legal, medical, service and manufacturing industries.
We offer the full range of services typically offered by accounting firms in order for small business and personal taxpayers to meet their legal obligations.
As a minimum, for business entities we prepare annual financial statements and income tax returns that are required by the Australian Taxation Office. The banks also usually require an annual review of financial statements to continue funding arrangements.
Some clients like us to attend to their BAS returns each quarter whilst others prefer to attend to that aspect themselves.
Apart from general income tax and GST matters, we assist clients with capital gains tax, payroll tax, PAYG, land tax, FBT, superannuation, workers compensation, BSA, company secretarial and trust account audit matters on a regular basis.
We are also experienced at negotiating payment arrangements with the ATO for those clients who have experienced cashflow difficulties. Although tax commitments can be often be challenging, we always maintain it is better to be upfront with the ATO and come to a workable solution rather than ignore the problem altogether. Some great outcomes have been achieved.
