It’s safe to say that we all have a love/hate relationship with the taxman. Tax season officially commenced on July 1st 2018, and it has brought most of us into an absolute tizzy. SARS recently announced that the tax season has been shortened to 3 months. This means a shorter filing period, which means less time to get your taxes in order, which could only mean that if you are last-minute Linda, you now have a higher chance of missing the tax returns deadline. And trust us, you don’t want that.
Thankfully, tax season doesn’t have to be as daunting anymore. You don’t have to do your own taxes, and no one will judge you for it. You can get your accountant to do it for you, or you can hire a Virtual Assistant who also just happens to be a certified tax practitioner, to do the tedious task on your behalf. You’d not only be saving time, but you’d be saving cash, too.
Below are a few reasons why getting a competent VA to handle your taxes is the right thing to do.
1. Numbers aren’t your forte
If doing the books and keeping track of numbers isn’t your strongest attribute, then hiring a Virtual Assistant who is qualified in tax is probably your best bet. Apart from possibly getting it completely wrong if your go about it on your own, you’d also be at risk of spending a huge chunk of your time getting absolutely nowhere.
2. Everything is in order
Collecting all your documentation, invoices and receipts is only half the job done. Now to organise and categorise them is a mission in itself! A capable VA from AdminAssist will make sure that all your documentation is verified and organised in preparation to your submission. All you have to do is to give us all the documentation and information necessary and we can do the rest.
3. Expert and experienced advice at your fingertips
Apart from handling your taxes, hiring a professional means you have adequate knowledge and experience by your side. Tax professionals stay updated on ever-changing tax laws and know exactly what to do and what to look for, meaning you’re less likely to be charged penalties due to incorrect/incomplete returns or late submissions.
So, while all your peers are stressed out trying to get their taxes in order, you can kick back, relax and spend time doing something you actually want to do, and are good at, too. All thanks to AdminAssist!
