How Much Do Your Services Cost?

When you’re running your own business, it’s understandable that you try to keep costs to a minimum. We do our best to accommodate businesses of all sizes, and will be happy to sit down and discuss options that would best suit your situation. Together, we do our best to ensure that the costs you incur are recouped in other areas of the business.

Ultimately, though, we believe that our work is an investment – not an expense. Our clients stick with us for a long time, which is something we’re immensely proud of.

Why Do I Need A Strategic Plan?

As studies have consistently shown, people set clear and consistent goals are far more likely to achieve them. It’s not uncommon for businesses to struggle with short and long-term strategy.

At The Co, we encourage all of our clients to genuinely think about what they want to achieve, both personally and collectively. When companies receive collective buy-in for the achievement of a specific goal, it’s incredible to see how teams collaborate and work together to make it happen.

I've Made Profit But Don't Have The Cash To Show For It - Where's The Money?

One of the perennial mysteries of the business world – “what happened to all our money?”

The good news is, you don’t have to live in fear about your finances. At The Co, we deal with a vast array of clients who, come tax time, begin to panic about the absence of cash in their accounts. Don’t worry, this is driven by various factors, including but not limited to:

  • Stock
  • Accounts Receivable – Money people owe you
  • Drawing – Sometimes we mix business with personal lives, which results in larger drawings than the business can afford

Whatever your question or situation, don’t live in fear. Give us a call on +61 3 8488 900, or drop us a line at to find out more.

How Come Kerry Packer Only Pays $1 In Tax?

Believe it or not, we get this question more often than you’d think. It’s not the case, and whoever spread this rumour has caused a lot of issues. Truth is, if you added up the amount of tax that Kerry Packer and his multi-million dollar enterprise paid, it would equal a lot of money.

Yes, we pay a lot of tax to cover our infrastructure here in Australia, and some of it may be wasted. However, we’re here to ensure that, through effective planning, you help the economy while minimising your own tax contributions as much as possible. To find out how we can help you, give us a call on +61 3 8488 900 or email us at

How Come My Friend's Accountant Claimed Their Personal Holiday?

Great question. The Australian tax system operates on a self-assessment basis, so there are ways to ensure you can claim back GST expenses for travel.
