Taxation and Superannuation
Lynch Meyer Lawyers’ taxation and superannuation team is distinguished by lawyers who combine commercial experience with a comprehensive knowledge of taxation and superannuation law.
Our goal is to ensure you consider and utilise appropriate tax-saving strategies in the formation, operation or disposition of your business or investments. We help structure and complete transactions that are tax efficient and commercial, and we work closely with you and your accountants to reduce taxes associated with business activities and significant transactions.
We can help establish a business entity, structure business transactions, and assist with sales and acquisitions of businesses and real estate transactions.
We also assist not-for-profit organisations in the process of establishment, and in obtaining and maintaining tax exemptions and concessions.
We offer expert advice and service on:
- Income tax
- Capital gains tax
- Goods and services tax
- Fringe benefits tax
- Stamp duty
- Payroll tax
- Land tax
- Business structuring and restructuring
- Lodgement of private rulings
- Objections to taxation assessments
- Assistance with taxation audits
Superannuation is a core part of our practice. We can advise you on all aspects of superannuation law including prudential, compliance and taxation, particularly for self-managed superannuation funds.
We regularly liaise with accountants and financial planners to formulate suitable superannuation strategies in which you can invest for your retirement, allowing you to take advantage of substantial taxation benefits available through effective investment in superannuation.
Company Structures and Trusts
Through ShelfDocs we incorporate companies and establish various types of trusts, partnerships and self-managed superannuation funds. We also amend company constitutions (including single director conversions), vary trust deeds and provide division 7A loan agreements.
Business Succession and Estate Planning
Our team will provide innovative solutions to business succession problems and can develop estate planning strategies that provide you and your family with certainty as to the future of a business in an environment that offers asset protection and significant income tax savings for future generations.
