To give you an idea, here’s a sample of the questions our email helpdesk has fielded in recent weeks – and how we responded to them…
Question: “Can my business claim a tax deduction for a fine it has received?”
Answer: No, the income tax legislation specifically indicates that your business cannot claim a tax deduction for fines and penalties.
Question: “Do I have to include amounts paid to contractors during the year when preparing my Payroll Tax Annual Reconciliation or monthly return?”
Answer: Yes, you will have to include amounts paid to contractors during the financial year when preparing your business Payroll Tax Annual Reconciliation or monthly return if those contractors mainly provide labour services or only work exclusively or primarily for one designated person in a financial year. For payroll tax purposes, these contractors are deemed to be employees, and payments made to them are deemed to be wages.
Question: “My business make sales of $60,000 a year, do I have to register for GST?”
Answer: No, you are not required to register for GST unless your GST turnover is more than $75,000. The previous threshold used to be $50,000 but this is no longer the case. However, if your business’s GST turnover is less than $75,000, you may still voluntarily register for GST. This is a good idea if you want to claim back the GST paid on the purchases your business makes. However, this would also mean that you would have to charge GST on your sales and send these amounts to the ATO.
Imagine hiring a top tax firm… having them at your beck and call around the clock… and NEVER getting an invoice!
That’s what our Smart Tax Helpdesk gives you. That alone is worth the small subscription cost.
