Deloitte Private


The cornerstone of our accounting and tax compliance service offering is strategy meetings and regular contact with you to ensure an efficient and co-ordinated approach to issues, reporting obligations and achievement of business objectives.

In relation to accounting and tax compliance (ie. preparation and lodgement of financial statements, Business Activity Statements and income tax returns for companies, trusts and individuals), we work with you to ensure the scope of our tax compliance work aligns with your requirements.

We follow our proprietary ‘Compliance Roadmap’ procedures that represent an end-to-end process covering the best practice approach to completing tax compliance engagements.

Assurance and advisory

Our audit methodology is risk and controls based. We engage closely with management to ensure that we focus on areas of most significance and deliver value. The risk assessment incorporates your views and concerns and we work with you to tailor our audit strategy based on this assessment. Our deliverables include a detailed Audit Completion Report that outlines our approach to the audit, the key issues arising from the audit and detailed feedback on the robustness of the internal controls and processing systems.

In summary, our audit approach involves a number of stages including:

  • Planning visit to identify and design an approach to address the specific audit risks of the engagement.
  • Interim audit to deal with year-end issues as early as possible and complete testing of transaction processes and operation of key internal controls
  • Year-end audit to test the financial statement balances and prepare the financial statements
  • Final group reporting
  • Issuance of year end board reporting document inclusive of recommendations for improvement.

Our experienced consultants assist in:

  • identifying and assessing risks
  • reviewing efficiency and effectiveness of internal processes
  • providing comfort around compliance with policies, procedures and regulations.

Succession planning

Succession planning is a complex process involving many business disciplines. As the majority of the Baby Boomer generation will retire over the next five to 10 years, succession planning will be vital for the long-term survival of private companies. 

It becomes more complex as many different business, financial and personal issues come into play. A good succession plan for private companies looks at a range of issues such as:

  • suitable talent
  • possibilities of floating
  • current leaders
  • corporate structure
  • estate planning
  • insurance
  • share transfers.


Deloitte Private has a strong team of super industry specialists dedicated to ensuring our clients; their staff and their business, are best positioned to get the most out of their superannuation strategies and opportunities are utilised.

Super funds support the retirement dreams of the nation. They also own a significant share of Australia’s largest businesses; build our shopping malls and offices, provide seed capital for entrepreneurs and extend our influence in overseas investment markets.


Taxation is often a complex and intricate business element. Only specialised service providers can navigate your business through regulatory changes, recent updates to income tax, FBT, GST, tax consolidation, international tax planning and issues, tax training, planning reviews and advice.

Tax planning 
Private companies need the benefit of every available tax advantage to compete successfully in Australia. Advice from tax professionals, who have the industry experience necessary for recognizing and implementing real savings, can help Australian businesses to minimise their income and capital tax liabilities.

Our professionals can also assist with private companies expanding or restructuring their offshore and international businesses and investments.
