Looking To Lodge Your Tax Return?

Did you know that it is your own responsibility to lodge your tax returns?

One of the obligations that we have when starting to earn an income, and a great habit to get into for good financial management, is lodging your income tax return each financial year.  You are required under Federal Government legislation to do so unless you fall into the few exempt categories.  In that case, you must at least notify the Australian Taxation Office that you are not required to lodge a tax return which our team can help you with doing. 

If you generate an income in Australia, you need to have a tax file number (TFN) and you will pay tax on the money that you earn.  The amount of tax that you need to pay for a specific year is calculated through your annual income tax return.  If you generate income outside of Australia, it is likely that you still need to lodge a tax return.

Canny Group takes the time to explain the process for new and returning clients as well as those that are lodging a tax return for the very first time.  Regardless if you’ve got a part-time job and you’re still at school or you’ve just started your own business or you have 2o years of outstanding income tax returns, we have been experts in this field for over 60 years – and our aim is to make this process as easy and stress-free as possible.

It is necessary to lodge an income tax return if you are employed, contracted or operating a company, trust or partnership if tax has been paid on any income that you have earned – even if the total income earned for the financial year is below the tax-free threshold.
