Services for International Clients
Catalyst Partners offer all the traditional accounting services at competitive rates but also, and importantly, act as the representative of the client to facilitate financial controlling and meet the extensive required compliance actions for both residents and non-residents in relation to their interests in Australia.
Depending on a client’s needs we can act as a family office, take on Directorships of related companies and/or act as a local Agent. We can also act as a representative of the owner by holding Power of Attorney, and similarly we can be a Trustee or Executor and undertake succession planning if required.
Management of financial affairs
We offer financial controlling of Australian assets and investment structures, including general financial diligence, accounts payable, debt management and treasury (or cash management). We also act as a hub for key networks and a coordinator of external service providers, including bankers, lawyers, developers & consultants, tax consultants, auditors, insurance brokers, investment managers and stockbrokers.
Rural property & enterprise management
As well as enterprise and business management, we specialise in managing rural and other properties; this requires unique skills and experience, and we have expertise in management, as well as investment, in agricultural and property interests.
We can also act as a ‘Post Box’ and Registered Office for any Australian structure for our clients, providing office facilities for visiting executives, acting as bank signatory and legal representative, and any other general services necessary to facilitate their business or investment activity in Australia.
We provide ongoing reporting for investors, including management accounting, investment reporting (both periodic and year-end) and funds management or treasury reporting. In particular, our overseas clients find this level of regular monitoring and visibility on their affairs invaluable.
We take care of tax and investment structuring to optimise investor benefits, and management of their general tax situation, for residents and non-residents alike. Where necessary, we both engage and manage specialist tax consulting services.
We provide annual compliance services, including income tax returns, financial statements, any required communication or documentation for the Australian Securities and Investments Commission (ASIC), BAS (or GST) monthly, quarterly and annual reporting, thin capitalisation monitoring and reporting, and management of State Land Tax (if applicable). For foreign residents we attend to Foreign Investment Review Board (FIRB) monitoring and reporting. Our focus is on keeping our clients safe from non-compliance with statutory obligations, and therefore we pay very close attention to detail.
