TAX DEBT SHOULD NOT BE HOLDING YOUR BUSINESS BACK.

Most business owners see tax debt as a bigger challenge than any other debt, but with our help, it's just as easy to reduce and eliminate tax debt and get your business back on track.

 

   


Money owed to the ATO (Australian Taxation Office) is known as tax debt. Not making allowances for tax bills, not registering for GST at the appropriate time or falling behind with paying tax bills can easily lead to mounting debt for your company.

Whilst any type of debt represents a tangible risk to your business, you may be concerned that this type of debt is more serious or harmful to your business - but this isn't necessarily the case. The same strategies that we have helped hundreds of Australian companies to implement to help reduce and remove their debt can also be applied to your tax debt.

This means that you can continue to trade whilst paying off your tax debt in a manageable way.

 

 

HOW SERIOUS IS TAX DEBT?

Any type of debt presents a risk to you, your business and its assets and should be taken seriously. Tax debt is no exception. The consequences of not paying off tax debt can include increasing interest and liabilities, penalty notices which can make directors directly responsible for company debt, Garnishee notices which can allow the ATO to take funds directly from your accounts and even winding up notices which will see your company put into liquidation. 

 

The good news, however, is that tax debt is exactly the same as any other unsecured or creditor debt which means that with a proper plan in place, all of these situations can be easily avoided and your company can still trade as normal.

VOLUNTARY ADMINISTRATION

When a company is no longer considered as 'solvent', voluntary administration is an option to satisfy both the creditors and help determine the future course of action for the business.

VOLUNTARY LIQUIDATION

Sometimes the only remaining option is to break a company down and re-distribute its assets. Not as intimidating as it sounds, it can be a relatively pain-free method of repaying creditors.
