GST & Business Activity Statements (BAS)


GST is a complicated issue, with many items being full GST, GST free, or partial GST. Completing your own BAS statements may seem cost-effective, however, very rarely we see one that is done correctly. As a result, amendments must be made, and they are costly. Carey Elder and Associates, our professional team knows the ins and outs of GST, and can prepare your activity statements the right way. Plus, we will ensure we meet the benchmarks set out by the ATO, and can give you quarterly advice as to how to better manage your practice.




At Carey Elder and Associates our annual tax return fees are fully inclusive.  Ongoing client support and customer service is the at the core of our business. Unlike many other accounting firms, our staff is actually contactable, we give you a timeframe for the completion of your work and we will not charge you for phone calls or printing.


We believe that a good accountant is hard to find, and trust is of major importance, which is why we are happy to communicate with our clients at any time throughout the year.


Starting a business can be a stressful time. To take the burden off you, at Carey Elder and Associates we can provide you with the following services:


  • ABN and TFN Application

  • Company Formation

  • GST Registration

  • PAYG Withholding Registration

  • Business Name Registration


We can also access the Tax Agent Portal to update your details such as change of address, contact number, and financial institution details. No more waiting in the queue to speak to an operator.


Whilst we strive to maximise returns for our clients by claiming all allowable deductions in your tax return, and correctly claiming input tax credits in your BAS statements, compliance with the ATO is a must.


We make sure our clients meet the small business industry benchmarks provided by the ATO, and claim only allowable deductions in their income tax returns.


At Carey Elder and Associates we are also ASIC registered agents, so we can look after your company particulars such as annual filing fees, change of company or members details.
