Did you know that if you are expecting to receive a large tax refund this financial year, you don't have to wait until the end of the financial year to receive your refund? To Claim your tax refund sooner, you will need to complete what's called a PAYG withholding variation application. Completing this form will reduce the amount of tax withheld from your wage and therefore result in a higher net wage. This is a great strategy to assist with short term cash flow and may help you avoid using other means of paying bills e.g. credit cards.

Attention Small Business owners! The Australian government has now made single touch payroll mandatory for all businesses with employees from 1 July 2019. This means all employers will soon have to digitally report to the Australian Taxation Office every time employees are paid. Although this may sound complicated, most businesses will already have the capabilities for single touch payroll via their accounting software. If this is the case, it will just be a matter of setting up the single touch payroll capabilities within your accounting software and you will be ready to go. If you don't have an accounting software or the software you are using doesn't support single touch payroll, you may have to consider setting your business up with an accounting software that supports STP. Alternatively, your BAS or Tax agent may be able to report to the ATO on your behalf as part of your BAS. If you have any questions regarding STP, contact our office and we will be happy to help. ...
