The Local Government Tax Service provides Local Governments with specialised taxation advisory and information services across all indirect revenue types.
The current Consultancy Contract for the Tax Service is held by Moore Stephens, whose dedicated Local Government team provides Members with a range of services that are directly tailored to the tax and financial accounting requirements of Local Governments.
Online Tax Advice
Subscribers are able to submit written tax enquires relating to GST, FBT and associated revenues and receive a written response within two (2) business days. Common enquiry topics include:
- Property transactions
- GST on fees and charges
- Payments to suppliers
- Elected Member taxation
- Grants and appropriations
Tax Consultancy services can assist with compliance and audit. The Service has helped many Members with their BAS, salary packaging, FBT returns and diesel fuel rebate applications. The Service can also assist with Taxation planning and related consultancy services which extend to covering the full range of Australian and International Tax issues, and even UK pension transfer.
The Tax Service is committed to providing subscribers with a professional service that combines the benefits of Local Government and tax knowledge to deliver a relevant, timely and reliable advisory service. To achieve a level of expertise that WALGA Members seek, professionals that have worked in the Local Government industry are part of the Service delivery team.
