For those small businesses (i.e. less than 19 employees) who haven’t updated your payroll processes so that you are SuperStream compliant by 30 June, you are in luck! The ATO has extended its deadline for compliance until 28 October 2016. Click here for further information.
The easiest way to become SuperStream compliant is to upgrade to on-line bookkeeping software. While these may incur a monthly fee we can almost guarantee you that once you’ve got a hang of it, you will save that time back – and you will wonder why it took you so long to change!
If you are still not sure what you need to do in your particular situation, please contact our office and we can assist you with finding a solution.
It’s that time of year again when businesses that provide benefits to employees need to consider the Fringe Benefits Tax (FBT) implications.
If we are aware that FBT may be relevant to your business, you will shortly receive an annual questionnaire to help you consider your situation and whether you need to take any steps now to minimise the FBT.
However, if your business provides any non-cash benefits (think cars, loans, phone etc) to employees, and you don’t receive a letter from us within the next couple of days then please contact our office immediately.
For those businesses that own cars, it is important to ensure you record your odometer reading on 31 March 2017. There are instructions in our letter to you to assist with this.
If you are unsure whether FBT applies to you or you need assistance with your FBT please give us a call.
