Tax Planning involves reducing the amount of tax paid by an individual or their entity through diverting, delaying or deferring the income tax. Carbon Audit Brown and Bird, in association with Carbon Audit Partners, can now assist you to calculate your business's carbon footprint and implement carbon pollution reduction strategies that will save you money! Whether you believe in the Global Warming message or not, the fact is that governments around the world are moving to put in place carbon reduction schemes. In Australia, our Government has recently passed carbon pricing legislation, meaning the top 500 polluters will be required to pay for their emissions.
