Your Tax Questions Answered

As a busy entrepreneur your focus is on the growth of your business and doing what you do best. By working with Sidekick, you will have a positive and sustainable structure in place to grow your business the way you want to!

Let’s look into some common tax questions and how Sidekick can help you:


What expenses can I claim for?

You can potentially claim for a variety of expenses, including travel and subsistence, mobile phone bills, working from home allowances to name a few. Sidekick will discuss your business costs with you and what you can reclaim. Remember our fees are also treated as a tax free expense!


Should I be tax planning?

Tax planning plays an important role in:

  • Lowering the amount of taxable income
  • Reducing the tax rate
  • Allowing greater control of when taxes get paid
  • Maximising tax relief/tax credits available

Sidekick will discuss your bespoke plan with you, ensuring you understand reclaimable expenses, and how you can extract income to cover your costs and to plan for any goals you may have.

Do I need to keep paper records?
