Businesses must retain records for at least 7 years so as not to incur penalties. Dillgent record keeping is important when it comes to meeting tax obligations, and understanding how your business is faring. Luckily these days this can all be done online at low cost.

A Business Activity Statement (BAS) is a form (either paper or electronic) that businesses submits to the ATO to report and pay their tax. Mostly, BAS is related to goods and services tax (GST). When you complete your BAS you are reporting the GST you’ve collected on your sales less GST you’ve paid on your purchases. The difference is your refund or what you must pay to the ATO.

Crowdfunding is raising money from a large number of people (ie friends, family, customers, and individual investors) who each contribute a small amount – usually about $10,000 or less. Traditionally, if you want to raise capital to start a business, you would need to provide an extensive business plan, market research, and then shop your idea around to a limited pool or wealthy individuals or institutions. Crowdfunding platforms (called intermediaties in Australia), on the other hand, is different. By giving you, the business owner, a single platform to build and share your story, this approach dramatically streamlines the traditional model. Accountant Direct are Crowdfunding Accountants. We specialise in this type of finance and can assist any size of business with their capital needs. Contact us today.

Payroll tax is a self-assessed, state and territory based tax based on the total amount of wages paid by an employer. In order to be liable for payroll tax you need to be paying at least $650k and $2m in wages, depending on which state you are in.
