What We Do

MAQA is a family operated, certified accounting firm based in Coffs Harbour that has been providing accounting services to a variety of clients throughout Australia for over 25 years.

With experienced staff we offer a range of competent, prompt, professional services within the accounting industry. These services include;

Tax Compliance

We are guaranteed to be able to help you fulfil your taxation obligations (and seize taxation opportunities!) this tax season. Our helpful staff members are able to complete both simple and complex income tax returns for all entities from individuals and partnerships to trusts, companies & self managed superannuation funds. We provide up to date information to ensure you get the most out of your tax return.

We also process Business Activity Statements on a regular basis for our clients, helping them to stay on top of their Goods & Services Tax (GST) obligations.

Tax Planning

Our team regularly works with clients before the 1st of July hits. This enables us to provide you with plans that you can implement to reduce the amount of tax you will have to pay when you complete your upcoming tax returns. This service provides you with peace of mind by preventing stress caused by unknown tax bills. We work closely with you to make sure you are aware of both your tax responsibilities and opportunities.

Audit Services

With certified accountants on board we offer comprehensive and independent auditing services to both businesses and self managed superannuation funds. Our auditing services include not only audits of clients’ financial statements, but also special investigation areas and reports on client’s internal controls.

Business Advice (including management & administration advice)

Our accountants don’t simply work with tax. Many of our staff members have worked in management accounting roles giving them the experience needed to assist you with business advice. This advice extends to management processes and administration advice. No matter what your business needs, it’s likely that we will be able to assist.

Financial Reporting / Compilation Services

These services consist of the maintenance of your accounting information systems as well as compilation of financial statements and special reports. We provide development of information systems and assistance with reports required for regulatory agencies and meeting contractual credit agreements.

Business Evaluation

Whether you’re looking at buying or selling a business or simply want to know how you’re business is performing, our qualified staff can assist you in evaluating the health and value of a business. This service ensures that you understand and have access to information, which aids you in making the best business decisions.

Self Managed Superannuation Funds (SMSF’s)

We ensure that the SMSF service’s we provide are comprehensive in nature. This service includes not only all of the above-listed services (where applicable) but additional ones to ensure compliance with standards and obligations such as the preparation of minutes, strategies and actuarial certificates. We also have multiple qualified SMSF Auditors on board in order to service SMSF’s from start to finish.

Set-up, Registrations and Applications

Our staff can help you with the often daunting process of setting up a business, including applying for Tax File Numbers and Australian Business Numbers or registering for Goods and Services Tax (GST). This service extends from companies to self-managed superannuation funds, trusts, partnerships and individuals.
