I have a prior tax return that I haven't done yet (well, I think it's only one). It seems to be a pretty complicated process, particularly since I don't have all the relevant paperwork - like all the group certificates - and I'm not even sure what year the damn thing is from! So I was thinking of handing everything over to an accountant so they can do it for me.
But I don't even know where to begin looking for one. Should I just go with one of the big companies or find a local place?
I'm totally lost in a sea of accounting firms ...

If you have a straight PAYG return - meaning you only have worked in employment and not self employed or don't own investment properties etc. A simple tax agent like HR Block would probably be your cheapest option.

If you have a simple payg tax return to lodge with noother deductions or assets, then i would suggest saving yourself the accountanting fees altogether and do it via etax. As far as your return from a prior year goes, if your accountant has to sort it out for you - you'll pay the fees for it. You can contact the ato if you have missing group certs and they can help you track them down free of charge Further, the ato rarely fines you for returns not lodged IF you have a refund due and not a debt to pay. Hope this helps
