3 Welcome Welcome to a new income tax year, which means it s time to file last year s income tax returns! Our primary goal remains to provide you with professional, efficient tax preparation & consulting. We continue to seek ways to improve & streamline our processes to achieve this and to minimise turnaround time. Every year, as we approach the end of tax season, with only one or two weeks to go, we receive a staggering number of returns to process, and while we scramble to accommodate everyone s needs, we find it difficult to accommodate everyone. Throughout the guide, we ve compiled some checklists for you to review & complete, where applicable. Each checklist contains a series of boxes for you to check off so you know you ve given us the information/documentation we require. For many sections, you ll not need to supply any information. If we already hold some of the information for the year (for example if we prepare your GST returns and cash books), we will generally require less information from you to begin our work. Though it may seem an inconvenience, the care you take in completing the checklists will help us to prepare your annual accounts efficiently and to the highest standards. I know that, for many, there s so much to remember and collate when collating information ready to send to us. That s why we ve designed this guide to help. I hope you find it useful. As always, thank you for your business and referrals, and I look forward to hearing from you soon. All the best for the year. Mark Gwilliam FCCA MinstD Director How to use this guide We ve written this guide to help you to gather the information we need to prepare your 2015 financial statements and income tax returns. The information required relates to the tax year from 1 April 2014 to 31 March If your income year is different, please contact us. Inland Revenue Department and our own professional accounting bodies require us to obtain the information requested in these checklists. The details you provide can also help to save time - delays and increased fees are inevitable if we need to disturb you to obtain missing information, trace transactions, or decipher illegible handwriting. If, after reading this guide, you have any questions, or need help with it, please call us on When you ve gathered your tax information, please call for an appointment or if you feel an appointment is unnecessary, simply mail/ your information to us. Please ensure you sign the acknowledgement page on page 13. We aim to process tax returns in the order that they re received. If you have a specific deadline or other time constraint, please let us know. In the middle of difficulty, lies opportunity - Albert Einstein Page 1
