This year the Australian Taxation Office (ATO) has developed a series of Tax Time Toolkits to help the Australian workforce prepare and lodge their tax returns.
Available for a range of professionals including hospitality workers, retail staff and sales and marketing professionals the dedicated Tax Time Toolkit entitled ‘Retail’ contains a range of fact sheets, practical information, tools and resources designed to make understanding and collecting documents for your tax return easier and clearer.
Employers can use the information available to inform staff, stakeholders and clients of what they are able to claim and what must be declared.
The Tax Time Toolkit includes detailed information on:
- Work-related expenses – what can and cannot be claimed
- Income – what income needs to be declared
- Gifts and donations – what can and cannot be claimed
- Record keeping – keeping the right records to substantiate claims and not miss out on a deduction
The directory provides answers to key tax time questions such as how to use the ATO Online services, how to track your lodgement, and how to access the free resources provided by the ATO.
