Hoffman Kelly are highly specialised in the property & construction area, all of our directors have expert knowledge and experience which allows us to service clients who range from smaller “mum and dad” first time developers through to larger full scale property developers with turnovers exceeding $240 million per year. Our clients are not only Queensland based but are situated all over Australia including Sydney, Perth, Hobart, Melbourne, and Darwin. From residential and commercial construction, to large infrastructure projects, to property developers or investors, businesses in this sector need a specialised firm who understand their industry.
We know, through first-hand experience the issues and complexities in property development. Thomas Aitkenhead and Claire Roberts are also regular speakers at various property seminars (some of which include Cherie Barber’s Renovating for Profit and Bob Andersen’s Property Mastermind) held across Australia.
Fluctuating property markets along with ever changing legislative and environmental regulations can present a challenge for property and construction businesses. Whether you’re a residential property developer, a firm of structural engineers, an architect or even a town planner, you will need an advisor that understands your industry.
At Hoffman Kelly, income tax is only one small part of the overall property picture. We take a holistic view of every client’s position and circumstances and we design and structure in a way to ensure the best possible asset protection for the client. We also look to ensure that the absolute minimum in income tax, GST, CGT, Stamp duty and land tax is paid. We frequently are asked to review and provide “second opinions” on advice received by other accountants claiming to be property “experts”. Sadly, we regularly find that the “advice” is defective as the advisor is usually not across and up to date with all aspects of property development.
As we have clients in all states and territories in Australia, we invest heavily in professional development training (about 4-5 times that of our peers) for our teams to ensure we remain at the leading edge of legislation changes at both the federal level (income tax, CGT and GST) and also with the various stamp duty and land tax legislation in each state and territory. Additionally, using the latest cloud technology, we are able to provide the complete range of services for our clients including full accounting for the specific project, regardless of location.
Being specialists in the property area, we also have a vast array of clients within our client base providing property related support services including architects, town planners, engineers, builders, surveyors and even property finance specialists all of whom can work with you to help take the stress out of your property development experience.
Whether you’re a property developer or are providing a property related service, Hoffman Kelly’s team have the skills, experience, technical expertise and commercial know-how to help you extract the maximum value from your business.
