Cash Flow Discipline for Professional Service Partners

Published on: July 10th, 2023

As a new partner in a professional services firm, you will likely experience a significant change in income. This usually comes in the form of a large salary increase and a change to employment conditions that will see you go from being an employee with the firm withholding tax to getting paid gross income.

This means you are now responsible for putting aside funds to cover future tax liability, which requires you to have a structure in place to manage this cash flow.

When this structure is not in place, it can quickly lead to a shortfall when the tax liability is due. This, in turn, can lead to ATO fines, interest or being put on a repayment plan.

As a new partner, you want your head in the game, focusing on shaping the future of your career, not bogged down in your new financial management requirements. Apt Private Capital works with partners across the professional services industry to provide guidance on all aspects of your finances, from structures and SMSFs to tailored investment options that meet independence criteria.
