MAY 2011

  

Hi and welcome to our May contact.

  

Its not far to the end of another tax year, and all of you in business should now be preparing for its completion.

 

Some reminders –

Ensure all of your PAYG Withholding and PAYG Instalments are up to date.

Check your wage records to confirm that you have Tax File Numbers for all employees.

If manually preparing PAYG Payment Summaries, make sure you have enough to cover all employees.

Reconcile Superannuation paid against the payroll; remember if an employee earns more than $450 in any month, Superannuation at 9% must be paid.

 

Remember that a deduction for Superannuation paid for the Month and/or Quarter ending June, will only be deductible if paid prior to 30 June; remember the cheque must be “presented” at your bank prior to 30 June.

 

Maintain and complete your Log Book, showing opening and closing odometer readings.

 

For our non-business clients – ensure you have all your PAYG Payment Summaries where you had more than one employer for the year; if any have been misplaced, contact the relevant employer and request a copy – they cannot refuse.

Check that all relevant diary notes, receipts and other source documents are on hand and complete.

 

Some further tips are below.

 

Enjoy the read
