Tax time can be stressful, so our aim is to reduce the stress and free up your time to pursue the

Payroll Tax

As an employer you may have payroll tax obligations.

Each state and territory has a different tax threshold and registration process. From the 1st of January 2019, the payroll tax for small business has been removed in South Australia.  South Australian business earning up to $1.5 million are no longer liable for payroll tax.  To identify where your payroll tax stands, you can find out more information at Revenue SA.


The purpose of Pay As You Go (PAYG) withholding is to pay your employee or contractor’s income tax obligation on their behalf. Businesses are obligated to withhold some of their payment and send it to the ATO at regular intervals. CM Accountants can assist your withholding tax obligations.

Entities may need to pay quarterly instalments of income tax on their business profits or investment incomes. If the situation arises, we can assist with your PAYG instalment tax obligations.

Capital Gains Tax

Do you know exactly what Capital Gains Tax (CGT) is or if you will incur it? And if CGT applies to you,
how much will you have to pay?

Capital Gains Tax occurs when you generate a profit through the sale of a business asset or investment.
 It’s a complex part of our taxation system and is heavily regulated and subject to close monitoring.

If you‘re ready to sell your business, it’s crucial to understand Capital Gains Tax and how it
may affect your optimal outcome.

CM Accountants can help calculate your CGT when it’s time to sell or invest.
