Let’s face it, there are a number of accountancy firms that you can engage and the choice is yours. Some will cost more than others and most will provide sound accounting advice with respect to general taxation matters. However, not all industries and accountants are the same. If you operate within a creative industry such as Film/TV, Music or Sport – then you qualify as a “special professional” which entitles you to additional tax rebates eg.” Income averaging”. Or if you are involved in a film production with an appropriate level of expenditure – you may quality for the “producers tax offset”. Unless your accountant has specialist knowledge in these areas, most will be unaware of the rebates/offsets that you may be entitled to claim.
