Business planning

Managing a business without a plan is like jumping out of a plane without a parachute. Sounds dramatic, but it’s true. Every business venture involves risk and travelling into the unknown – but as accountants we like to make sure that your business has a safety net and can achieve plenty of rewards.

With one of the most complex taxation systems in the world, Kothes Accounting Group works hard to stay on top of taxation legislation, business management and compliance across a range of business sectors.

And although this might be stating the obvious, Kothes Accounting Group is a business. We employ 50 people in the Bega Valley, Sapphire Coast and Snowy Mountains districts. We have been in business since 1947 and have grown from one office to seven, navigating our way through the ever-changing and highly competitive business, technology and taxation landscape.

We manage our own business, and comply with all our own tax and business compliance obligations. As such, we are continually striving to improve efficiency and achieve sustainable business goals within our own business, so we are able to pass on what we know and are learning onto you, our valued business clients.

Succession planning

Are you working so hard in your business you haven’t had time to think about where you will be in 5, 10, 20 years time? Part of your business planning needs to look at succession planning. Is it a family business? Will you sell it to fund your retirement? Who is going to be the future owner of your business? How are you going to exit your business? We can work on strategies with you to help plan for the future, and give you the best possible chance of creating wealth and work towards a successful outcome for you and your business.
