on site tax returns

My on site service is designed to make completing your tax return convenient and comfortable for you. No travelling to an office, no intimidating suits - just friendly, personable service on your terms.

Available to most locations in the Greater Brisbane area (including Logan, Ipswich, Pine Rivers, Redlands and Gold Coast), I bring the office to you. With just me and my laptop, we'll usually have your tax return completed in well less than an hour.

I can do after hours appointments, and you can work from home or look after the kids at the same time.

The on site service makes missing documents a breeze - just grab it from your files in the back room or fire up your laptop!

"My family have been working with Jen from Blue Ribbon Accounting for the last 5 years. Not only does she do an amazing job at completing our tax returns, she also answers all my finance questions, offers guidance for our small business tax and she comes to us! She fits in beautifully with our busy life, and it means I can continue working too."
- Sarah Sculley, Sole Trader, Sculley Design

Time for Taxes 2017-06-24


If you live further away, work all sorts of unpredictable hours, or even if you'd just rather work electronically to complete your tax return, I have a service for you, too.

My off site tax return service is completely electronic. You pull together all the documents you have and send through photos or scans, and I complete your tax return off site.

I have ex-pat Aussie clients as far away as Canada and London, as well as clients who are local, but time-poor - or just prefer to get things done electronically when they can.

New clients can complete their tax returns off site too - we just have to complete an identity check.

"Jen has been doing my tax for over 5 years. In Brisbane she always made sure to fit in with my schedule, and now that I've moved to Melbourne, Jen still does my tax long distance. I wouldn't go to anyone else!"
- Cash Harvey, Melbourne

Arts Industry 2017-06-24


Arts industry businesses and employees (including a broad variety of creative industries and roles) are eligible for several concessions not available to all taxpayers or businesses.

I have significant experience in applying these concessions, including:

  • Immediate access to business losses
  • Special professionals income averaging
  • Maximising deductions for the arts industry

Best of all - the on site tax return service is ideal for whatever paperwork filing method (or lack thereof) you might have. Whether you have a spreadsheet, a little black book or a shoe-box full of receipts, we'll be able to sort you out painlessly in an environment that's comfortable to you.

"Jen from Blue Ribbon Accounting is the professional and personable accountant all artists need. Working as an Independent Artist with many different companies and people, the need to keep on top of my accounts has been paramount but something I could never get my head around. Jen makes tax time something to look forward to rather than dread."
- Anna Straker, Performer, Theatre Maker and Visual Artist
Matilda Award Winner in Audio Visual Design 2016

Sex Workers 2017-06-24


Sex workers, like those in the arts industry, have some specific tax needs that I can offer.

I am happy to work with you to ensure that you are as comfortable as possible with your tax return and business services. You may prefer an on site appointment to ensure that you feel safe with me as your accountant, or you may prefer off site services to preserve your confidentiality.

I can guarantee:

  • Iron clad confidentiality and discretion around legal names and personal details
  • Taxation and business advice around tax returns, business registrations, and business growth
  • Specialised deductions for sex workers
  • A comfortable and safe tax return experience
"It's difficult to come across sex worker friendly professional services - but Jen is just that. Jen is nonjudgmental, and provides discreet accounting services that cater to the needs of sex workers. I'm particularly impressed with her ability to answer my questions about tax in a way that I can understand. I can't recommend her enough!"
- Sophie Peters, Brisbane
