Bove Business Specialists


Professional Accounting & Taxation Services

Bove was one of the first professional members and accredited trainers of Reckon® software. Today this service is managed by our associated company Chrisalex which was incorporated to provide ‘bespoke’ training and bookkeeping services to micro businesses and SMEs throughout Australia; a service which is unconditionally supported and guaranteed by specialist taxation accountants.

As Reckon® Accredited Accountants & Trainers, our team draws on over 40 years of specialist industry experience to help clients improve accountability and run their business. Chrisalex bookkeepers have been personally trained by Bove Principals and must:

– be registered Bas Agents;

– comply with Bove stringent quality procedures; and

– comply with the obligations set out in the Code of Professional Conduct pursuant to Division 30 of the Tax Agents Service Act 2009.

“Bookkeepers form the foundations to building accountability with integrity. Whilst there is a growing trend to ‘cloud’ this service, beware that as with all growing clouds storms inevitably follow. Chrisalex bookkeepers understand the importance of their role and that what they do is not just data entry. There is a significant difference between data entry and keeping the books” – Vito Bove

Bove ensures available resources are used efficiently and effectively to facilitate clients in co-ordinating the efforts of their people to achieve desired goals and set objectives. Bove assists in the planning, organising, training, leading and directing of a client’s business to navigate towards achieving a desired result.

Bove is passionate about business management / development and employs techniques such as eiQ to embed a fundamental and invaluable corporate culture.

Business is not just financial. To be in business and moreso to be successful requires an innate ability to:

– Manage change;

– Deal with the complexities of life; and

– Negotiate relationships.

“The world we live in is forever a roller-coaster of constant change. Therefore, it is imperative to engage a trusted adviser that knows and understands you, your family and your business. After all, your success is a measure of our success” – Vito Bove

Have you stopped to assess and calculate your ‘risk position’?

Based on over 32 years of empirical evidence, business owners fail to address risk!

Ensuring that your assets, wealth and investments are protected is one of the most important factors to deal with (before taxes), particularly when running a business. Bove specialises in advising clients on assessing and managing their risk.

“Whilst no two clients are the same, common threads do exist. For this reason, Bove work closely with each of our clients with a focus on ‘OPE’ strategies during the decision making process” – Vito Bove

The word accounting is synonymous to money and financial matters. Consequently, all too often accountants and advisers focus primarily on “numbers” and “the bottom line”.

Bove’s philosophy is that there are two “balance sheets” of accountability, financial and iTime. A healthy financial position doesn’t necessarily mean you are “healthy”.

Bove works closely with clients to achieve their desired goals and objectives. Bove develops personalised strategies which consider (amongst other things):

– The marketplace;

– Technology;

– Accounting standards; and

– The law.

“Providing value added services that enhance the lives of our clients is a core service requisite” – Vito Bove

Have you prepared a Succession Plan? What about a Will?

The reality is that business owners work extremely hard and find it increasingly difficult to allocate what time they have left to consider the one thing in life that is guaranteed; death and not taxes! Consequently, we take our lives and our loved ones for granted.

Bove has assisted many clients confronted with unfortunate circumstances such as the sudden death of a loved one. Our services range from, liaising on behalf of clients with their professional legal representative, to dealing with technical/complex matters relating to the administration and distribution of the estate.

We understand how difficult this time can be and for this reason, it is important your trusted adviser ensures that the final wishes of the deceased are respected and fulfilled.

In an unforeseen circumstance what would happen to your business and your loved ones?

“The notion of ‘making time’ and ‘allocating time’ is all too often confused. The reality is, from ‘moment to moment’ we all have exactly the same amount of time; it’s what we do with that time that makes the difference to how we live our lives (iTime)” – Vito Bove

Deciding on a structure is complex and daunting, particularly when having to consider and deal with a myriad of possible circumstances that are overshadowed by legislation.

Bove advises clients on the many aspects of structuring and restructuring, including when starting a business for the very first time.

Whether it’s in the form of a joint venture, limited partnership, company or trust, Bove will advise as to the appropriate structure for you.

“No matter the level of due diligence and planning, we can never know with certainty what life has installed. This uncertainty coupled with a client’s confidence level when starting a new business or venture, materially influences the client’s choice of ‘start-up’ structure. Invariably in these circumstances the client’s ‘default choice’ of structure will have significant limitations. As a trusted adviser we must be prepared accordingly” – Vito Bove

Bove provides corporate services to ensure compliance with the Corporations Act 2001(Cth) and associated statutory requirements. Bove complies with transparent disclosure of information amongst stakeholders and ensures that corporate and statutory records are accurate, complete and filed within the prescribed time lines.

“Transparency amongst stakeholders becomes apparent during difficult times; particularly minority interest holders” – Vito Bove

Bove skilled tax professionals devote themselves to staying current with existing and constantly changing tax laws.

Through our expertise, research and continuing professional development, Bove works resolutely towards minimising the complexities of the tax process for clients.

Bove Financial Year Compliance File (FYCF) was introduced by our Senior Principal to incorporate the spirit of the Tax Agents Services Act 2009 and in particular Division 30 Code of Professional Conduct. Bove’s primary motivation and focus is to provide a safeguard to our clients that is based on:

  • Best practice;
  • Competency;
  • Compliance;
  • Quality procedure; and
  • Reasonable care.

“Dealing with complex resident and non resident taxpayer issues and circumstances is what Bove is recognised for” – Vito Bove
