FROM THE DESK OF STEVE FUNDER
I've been in business for over 30 years and have taken great pleasure in teaming with many small business owners and private individuals to assist them to achieve their goals and dreams. I have built my business around teamwork, honesty, integrity and leaving ‘no stone un-turned' to achieve optimum results. I also know the world has changed, especially the financial world, meaning like never before there is a real need for financial experts.
Taxation planning, accounts' preparation, cash shares, property and financial advice can be confusing and Australia's sophisticated taxation system is widely recognised as one of the most complex in the world.
Now, more than ever, expert accountancy advice should pay for itself several times over. Lets team together to review your personal circumstances or set a financial plan based on our small business advice....let us work together to achieve a bright future for you and / or your business...
I know finance can be serious business, but I also take time to unwind ensuring a clear mind to encounter any accounting challenge. With hobbies such as golf, walking to keep fit and reading along with an enjoyment of Toast Masters and the position of Area Governor I see the importance in life balance. I'd like to team with you to ensure you find yours. Why not organise an obligation-free 1 hr consultation (valued at $250) today? In this hour, we will see how we can financially get you back on the straight and narrow. I'm sure you'll find our session, which normally takes an hour, very informative and most rewarding!

YOU VS FUNDER & ASSOCIATES
Doing your return online - 30 minutes to 2 hour
Your Deductions: Typically the deductions which you would claim would be so small as to be of little consequence. Research of the internet is fraught with danger because many of the deductions can be misinterpreted as to relevancy size and legitimacy for your business often for no commercial benefit whatsoever and more frighteningly if the claims appear too generous, an ATO audit is highly likely with severe financial penalties if there are over claims of expenditure
FUNDER & ASSOCIATES
Our Time - 15 to 30 minutes
Experience has told us that financial diagnosticians (accomplished accountants) use our experience in claiming the appropriate deductions on the information provided by you. Additionally, we think outside the square and highlight further opportunities after reviewing the information you provided.

Money Saved: How long is a piece of string, typically anything from $500 many thousands of dollars and it is not always on tax returns or restructuring of your business.
