Taxation Frequently Asked Questions

What are the different types of taxes?

The Australian Federal Government collects the following taxes:

  • Income tax
  • Capital Gains Tax (CGT)
  • Goods and Services Tax (GST)
  • Fringe Benefits Tax (FBT)
  • Medicare Levy and the Medicare Levy Surcharge
  • Luxury car tax
  • Customs and excise duty

Australia’s State Governments collect the following taxes:

  • Stamp duty (also called transfer duty)
  • Payroll tax
  • Land tax
  • Motor vehicle duty
What do I do if I've not paid my tax and the ATO has sent me a notice?

If you receive a notice from the ATO about unpaid taxes you should contact our tax lawyers Brisbane immediately. The ATO is willing to be lenient with tax payers that want to do the right thing. However, if you fail to pay your taxes and don’t respond to an ATO notice, the ATO may take stronger action that includes:

  • Charging interest on your tax debt
  • Withholding tax returns and entitlements to repay your debt
  • Garnishing your wages
  • Issuing Director Penalty Notices
  • Serving a bankruptcy notice
  • Applying to the court to have your company wound up

Your tax debt lawyer can provide support and advice for dealing with the ATO. As long as the issue is addressed quickly, the ATO will develop a plan that allows you to repay your debt and avoid further action.

I have an accountant, why do I need a tax lawyer?

Our tax lawyers Brisbane are professionals that provide legal advice for dealing with complex taxation matters. Tax lawyers can help you deal with significant tax risks, such as setting up a business, buying or selling a business, and resolving or preventing tax disputes. On the other hand, accountants are professionals that provide financial advice and work to minimise the amount of tax you pay while still remaining compliant with the ATO.

These two professions work together to minimise your tax liability and manage your risks. If you find yourself in a dispute with the ATO then you will likely need support from both a tax lawyer and your accountant.

Do you do tax returns and BASs?

The team at FP Lawyers does not prepare Business Activity Statements (BAS) or individual tax returns. You will need to engage an Accountant to prepare your tax returns and BAS. We are happy to work with your accountant and provide legal advice on tax risks, establishing businesses, ATO disputes, audits, estate planning and more.

How does tax affect my estate or assets?

Your estate and assets are subject to Capital Gains Tax (CGT) while you are alive. If you sell a major asset (such as real estate), you will need to pay CGT on any money you make. After you pass away, the beneficiaries of your estate are required to pay CGT if they sell inherited assets, and they are required to pay income tax on any income the estate generates. There are further taxation implications if you pass away and some (or all) of your estate resides in a trust.
