The Specifics

Accounting & Tax Services

Business & Personal Tax Advice

Individual, partnership, company, trust and superannuation fund tax returns and ensuring compliance on your end.


Business Activity statements (BAS)

Budget & Cash Flow Forecasts

Don’t wait for the bank to ask you for a Cashflow Forecast. It’s essential that you understand the expected cash inflows and outflows in your business. A Cashflow Forecast allows you to monitor and maintain your cashflow on a monthly basis. It gives you control over the cashflow in your business, and helps you identify how much you need to set aside for tax. A Cashflow Forecast is critical to the survival and growth of any business.

Business Structuring

One of the key decisions to make when starting a business is deciding on its structure.  The structure that you choose will depend on many elements, including the size and type of business, your personal circumstances and how much you plan to grow the business.

Business Benchmarking

We can help compare your business against others and the industry, so you can get an indication of where you are performing.

Estate Planning

As Jim Morrison said, “No one here gets out alive”.

When your time comes, you want to ensure that your assets are dealt with in the manner in which you intended.

This is why Estate Planning is so important.

Done properly, Estate Planning is more than just preparing a will. 

At Howe, Ford & Boxer we’ve partnered with reputable firm, McInnes Wilson Lawyers to offer a new breed of multi-disciplinary advice.

As highly experienced accountants, we bring to the table financial insights and taxation expertise that a lawyer alone would not provide.

We complete an in-depth and holistic review of your personal circumstances from a perspective that takes into account all the factors and risks associated in bequeathing your various assets.

We ascertain your personal wishes and we create a comprehensive strategy that minimises the tax implications associated with the transfer of your assets to your loved ones.

Essentially, we become your single point of contact for your Estate Plan.  Then, as your personal and/or financial position changes over time, which it will, we can determine if it has any effect on your Estate Plan and recommend updates accordingly.

If you don’t have an Estate Plan or if you’re concerned the will/plan you have is vulnerable, please give us a call.  We offer a free initial consultation and can often quite quickly ascertain if your arrangement is sufficiently robust.

Tax Planning & Management

It is important that you and your business do not overpay tax. We prepare comprehensive tax planning reports for you – to help you understand how your business is performing YTD and the expected tax outcomes, and help you plan for the year ahead.

Other Taxation Matters

General Tax Advice (Fringe benefits tax, GST, Capital gains tax) as well as payroll tax and other tax-related matters – we can handle it all.

Succession Planning

Succession planning allows you to transition your business to new ownership in a managed and systematic way; reducing stress while achieving a greater outcome. It’s not just about extracting maximum value from your business.

If you were hit by a bus tomorrow, how seamless and pain free would the immediate transition be – both for your business and for those who rely on it? We will work with you to develop your Succession Plan by identifying your succession options, clarifying your objectives – considering business, personal and family expectations – and defining the steps you’ll take to achieve them.
