I have a terribly bad accountant. Not only does he not answer phone calls or emails, but he actually makes accounting errors which either I or the ATO have caught on more than one occassion (not good when you're an accountant). So I've decided I need out.
I have a question though, hopefully someone can help with!
Accountant still hasn't done my personal returns for 2009-10. I guess accountants have some leeway to do returns way past the individual filing deadline. I just wonder though, if I drop him now and have him deregister himself as my tax agent, would I have a problem with the ATO since I'm past the individual filing deadline? I was planning on just doing my own tax return for that year, unless I can find a new accountant quickly and easily.
Also, if anyone knows of a good trader friendly acccountants (or ways of finding said accountants), ideally in Melbourne or Sydney, please let me know! It seems like finding a good accountant become a significantly challenge as soon as you invest in something other than property or buy-and-hold shares.
