Accounting principal, Robert Ellis worked at the Australian Taxation Office from 1988 to 1999, giving advice and issuing private rulings on complicated tax matters affected by tax laws. He also received media training and represented the ATO on various occasions on television and radio. Robert moved into public practice following this and worked in a boutique accounting firm in South Perth. Cumulatively he has now worked in the tax and accounting industry for over 20 years.
Robert has a Bachelor of Business from Edith Cowan University, and is a member of CPA Australia (Certified Practising Accountants) and also the National Tax Agents Association. To add to this, he is also the Honorary Treasurer of the Micro Business Party.
In 2016, Robert co-purchased with another Success Tax Professionals accountant, the practice of Ron Middleton (Ron’s Tax Service), in the suburb of Kewdale. With two accounting principals and plans for expansion, Ron and his business partner elected, after 12 months to move their respective clients to two new locations and operate independently.
The former practice which was located at 1/10 Wright Street, Kewdale can now be found at the following addresses:
Robert says, ‘I have no problem exploring options with the tax office for my clients, nor do I have a problem seeking rulings or advancing to appeal. The ATO can impose large penalties and use any amounts reported on an income matching basis and amend tax returns without querying the information first. There have even been situations where returns have been ATO amended adding on tens of thousands of dollars incorrectly. Unfortunately, this is becoming a more common problem. I have objected on behalf of a number of my clients and successfully resolved the matter for them.
‘Furthermore, the ATO income matches to BAS statements and Reportable Payments for people in the construction industry. In some cases, the person or business concerned is using an accrual basis for their accounts and cash basis for GST. Recently I have objected to a number of incorrect amendments for my clients.’
The practice provides accounting and tax services to individuals, businesses and SMSFs and has a special interest in maximising refunds and reducing tax liabilities for members of the police force and protective services. The practice has become recognised as a specialist provider for personnel in these fields of work.
Directions and Parking: Robert’s Orrong Road practice has plenty of parking located at the rear. As Orrong Road is a dual carriage-way it is advisable to be on the southbound side otherwise you need to drive to the turnaround point which is up to 2kms. (For Robert’s existing clients, familiar with the old Wright Street address, you can also still park there and just walk across the road to the new location).
Receptionist, Shannon and accountants Robert and Vicki, welcome existing and new clients to the Orrong Road practice in Carlisle.
