Australian Outsourced Tax Returns


Our Australian Accounting & Tax Compliance division takes care of your Companies, Trusts, Partnerships Sole traders, and Individuals (CTPI).

We are proud to be one of the first Australian companies in the accounting/tax outsourcing industry, having commenced providing tax compliance services over a decade ago. Our firm’s early establishment has helped our team gain valuable accounting and tax skills and experience. This plays an important factor in our ongoing success with completing CTPI works at Odyssey’s high quality, since it takes on average 18-24 months of practical training for a new graduate to perform solidly in the areas of Australian accounting and tax works. After over a decade of providing Australian tax return compliance outsourcing, we’ve completed over 50,000 Australian tax returns (excluding SMSF returns).

We also complete other related work such as trial balances, financials, and interims when required by our Australian firm client base.

How we charge

For Australian Accounting / Bookkeeping / Financial Planning firms, our ad hoc rates for CTPI Accounting and Tax work start at $30 hourly, with review onsite by our managers at $45 hourly.

However, to cater for rising demand in fixed arrangement/resources in Australia, we also have the following alternatives available for your consideration:

  • Pre-agree with you on fixed job rates for “one-off” projects or jobs
  • OR
  • Provide you with your own “team member” whose experience and skill levels meet basis performance criteria and are in line with your requirements. Monthly fee for the resource is advised to you at the time of engagement. Our fixed resource is a well trained member with minimum 18 months of practical experience at Odyssey.

So whatever workload you have in your Accounting & Tax Compliance we’ll be happy to arrange a solution to fit your requirements.

PS: yes, the screens have been whited out by our inhouse IT staff. We take our clients’ confidentiality very seriously!
