Understand what business expenses you can claim to optimize your tax situation.

Income Tax

Tax Returns

File the appropriate tax return based on your business structure, whether you’re a sole trader, a company, part of a partnership, or operating under a trust.

Debt Management

Address any outstanding debts promptly to avoid penalties and further complications.

Provisional Tax:

Consider paying income tax in installments throughout the year to manage cash flow effectively.

GST Registration

If your turnover exceeds $60,000 annually, register for GST, file returns, and manage payments accordingly.

Employer Obligations

If you employ staff, ensure compliance with PAYE deductions and other employer responsibilities.

Schedular Payments

Understand withholding tax requirements for payments made to independent contractors.

Financial Management

Regularly review your financial position, manage cash flow, and stay on top of job workflows to avoid surprises.
