Understanding business accounting and tax

Business structure
In Australia, the common business structures are sole traders, companies, partnerships, and trusts. The choice of your business structure can affect how much tax you need to pay, and other tax responsibilities.​
Paying taxes
Businesses are required to pay various taxes – including income tax, GST, and payroll taxes (PAYG withholding). ​
Registering for GST
Australian businesses with an annual turnover above $75,000 are required to register for GST, and then charge GST on their sales. If your annual turnover is below this threshold, GST registration is voluntary.​
Filing tax returns
Businesses are required to file tax returns with the ATO on a regular basis. If you file your own income tax returns, the deadline each year is the 31st of October. However, if you’re working with an accountant, this deadline may be extended to the 15th of May the following year. ​​

You’re also required to file BAS returns on a regular basis. The BAS filing frequency in Australia is monthly, quarterly, and annually. Our key date calendar helps you keep track of these deadlines.​

Keeping up with the changes
Tax laws and regulations can change, so it’s important to stay informed on any new developments that may affect your business.​
Keeping records
Business owners are required to keep accurate financial records to ensure compliance with tax laws- this includes invoices, receipts, and bank statements. The ATO requires you to keep these records for at least 5 years.​
