Rental Properties

Rental Properties have always been a popular investment with Australians but they can sometimes be a minefield when dealing with the ATO. At Con Galvin & Associates, we can help by:

  • Providing advice to minimize capital gains tax
  • Assisting with ensuring you maximize your tax refunds from negative gearing
  • Providing advice on ownership structure
  • Reviewing off-the-plan investments for viability.

Deceased Estates

Deceased Estates can be a simple affair to administer. However, our experience has been that as taxpayer's affairs become more complex, so does their trust estate should they pass away.

Even though an estate will be administered by a firm of solicitors or the Public Trustee, it will be necessary to obtain the best advice to deal with the estate assets in the most tax effective way which is where Con Galvin & Associates can help.

ATO Tax Debt Negotiation

ATO Tax Debt Negotiation. It is no secret that the ATO is owed many billions of dollars in outstanding small business debt due mainly to the depressed Australian economy. This can cause much aggravation for small business owners which sometimes struggle to keep ATO debts under control.

At Con Galvin & Associates, we understand the uncertainty of dealing with these debts and have the experience to negotiate with the ATO payment plans which helps ensure the future viability of the business.

Capital Gains Tax

Capital Gains Tax has been part of the Australian tax regime now for more than 30 years. Arguably, CGT is the most complex area of taxation law. Whether you have sold shares, property, an interest in a business or your stamp collection, the ATO will be interested in sharing in the proceeds with you.

Of course, there are a lot of exemptions from GCT – it's just knowing which sales are exempt. That is where CGA can help. They are there to guide you through the CGT maze and advise you on the best course of action to minimize any CGT.


GST can be complex and difficult to understand, particularly with property transactions. Even deciding if a transaction attracts GST can confuse business owners.

Con Galvin and Associates have a wealth of experience in advising on GST matters and are more than happy to help you with your GST obligations.

Trust Account Audits

For businesses which are real estate agents or solicitors, we offer audit and assurance services for the annual audit of their trust accounts. As part of our engagement, we provide advice on improvements to their record-keeping in addition to reporting to the government or other regulatory bodies.
