Tax Planning Strategies for Individuals

Individuals can claim deductions related to earning taxable income. To be eligible for a work-related deduction, you have to be able to prove that you made the purchase and you must have not received an reimbursement. Your personal income tax planning can also involve:

  • Property Depreciation
  • Reviewing Ownership of Investments
  • Deferring Income
  • Repayments
  • Motor Vehicle Log Book
  • Accelerated Depreciation

Tax Planning Season

Tax planning  usually takes place from April to June – and it’s a time when your accountant will spend time poring over the last nine months of your financial affairs and strategises the management of your tax obligations. Accountants will ideally get together with you and discuss the year that’s been.  If your income has increased or decreased in the last financial year, your tax bill will be affected. Wilson Pateras’ Tax Advisors will also incorporate any budgetary changes into tax planning for you and/or your business, maximising your wealth.
