Trade Accounting has provided taxation services and financial advice to clients in and around the Gold Coast since 1988. Our firm is best suited to individuals, sole traders, small to medium businesses and companies.

Juggling day to day family life, running a company or working as a sole trader? No matter what you do today, everyone is suffering from a lack of time and tasks like tax returns or shopping around for the right home loan or superannuation package often get pushed to the bottom of priority lists, or get forgotten altogether. It is unfortunate that the current pace of life has seen so many people neglect their own economic future, but you can turn your fortunes around today with the help of Trade Accounting.

Our principal accountant, Stephen Drinkwater, has eleven years of experience as an auditor and assessor for the Australian Taxation Office, so we can relieve the pressure caused by the increased documentation and evidence requirements of the Australian Taxation Office. We also offer timely advice on taxation updates and cash flow projections to make sure your business runs efficiently.

Trade Accounting provides highly qualified accounting services for:

  • Tax returns – for individuals, sole traders, small and medium enterprises or companies and small to medium charitable organisations
  • Payroll taxes and WorkCover –every state and territory in Australia has different rules in relation to payroll tax and WorkCover
  • GST and quarterly BAS – we offer a quarterly BAS service or we can teach regular clients how to submit quarterly BAS
  • Taxation advice – the Australian Taxation System is complex. We minimise tax burdens without inadvertently breaking laws
  • Ongoing maintenance of your books and records – well-maintained books are required if you need to borrow money for the business or if you are audited
  • Preparation of periodic and annual accounts – if an unqualified individual lodges an incorrect return on a company, an audit is highly likely, which will cost time and productivity
  • Banking and commercial documentation – we manage simple to complex transactions
  • Management accounting – complete oversight of your accounts
  • Business advice and planning –we take an objective view to focus on strengths, eliminate weaknesses and keep moving your business forward
  • Budgetary and cash flow projections – this necessary (and sometimes) painful aspect of business management is often overlooked with dire results. We take the guess-work out of budget projections
  • General business management – our comprehensive business management package takes care of everything from quarterly BAS statements to corporate secretarial services
  • Accounting

    We work closely with our customers to make sure their finances are well managed, their books maintained and their returns lodged on time. We use MYOB, Xero or Quicken, we offer a dedicated bookkeeping service, and we have a finance broker available.
