Free tax calendar for SME's


Small businesses ease burden of meeting tax and superannuation obligations with help of Tax Office’s online calendar

Small businesses can ease the burden of meeting tax and superannuation obligations with the help of the Tax Office’s free electronic calendar.

Accessed through the ATO website, the calendar is designed for small businesses, including sole traders, with a turnover of less than $2 million.

Tax Commissioner Michael D’Ascenzo says the online tax calendar provides reminders of lodgement due dates for business, bookkeepers and tax agents.

"You can personalise the calendar quickly and easily by answering some simple questions about your business," D’Ascenzo says.

"Based on your individual circumstances, the calendar records all the due dates you need for the financial year, such as when to lodge your business activity statement and when to pay your employees’ superannuation," he says.

The updated calendar can now be used for charities, not-for-profit organisations and deductible gift recipients.

Small businesses can also record notes and reminders, and print a one-page yearly planner for tax and superannuation due dates.

"If you run more than one business or have a number of clients, you can set up a unique tax and superannuation calendar for each of them, and tax agents can encourage clients to use the calendar to record upcoming appointments," D’Ascenzo says.

The latest version of the tax calendar is now available to download here.
