All returns are electronically lodged and refunds can be paid straight into your bank account – the quickest way to get your refund. The majority of individual returns can be lodged on the day of your appointment, speeding up your refund cheque (payment of my fees needs to be made on the day, no return will be lodged without fees being paid first). Most refunds owing are paid into your bank account within 14 days, sometimes it can be a lot quicker than that. We also now offer to take fees from refunds.
Business hours are:

I am trying to cut down on paper use in the office so I am hoping to get everyone who signs in the office on paper, to sign on my new digital signature pad.
You will always been supplied a paper copy of your return for your records.
Also to assist you with keeping track of your final return, your tax returns will now be available to you on my online document portal to download at any time – day or night. I will no longer be emailing through copies of returns or notice of assessments.
The portal is as easy to use as online banking. You will be issued a log in via email. You then set your password and we are good to go. You can then upload any documents you wish me to have and I can upload copies of your documents I have completed, for you to download at your leisure.
What to bring?
To make sure you appointment goes as smoothly as possible and return is finished quickly it is essential to bring the necessary paperwork. As you can understand I have stringent guidelines I need to follow regarding documented evidence regarding income and deductions.
As a start, the following items are essential for a basic wage return:
