Business Tax Return FAQs

A business is required on an annual basis to report the business’s financial position and business activities for the financial year to the Australian Taxation Office (ATO). This is your business tax return.

All Business tax returns include the annual income, expenses, balance sheet items and tax offsets and credits for the business, and determine whether they are in a tax payable or refundable position.

If you lodge through an accountant, you can extend your tax return due dates beyond the normal deadlines for self-lodgements.

Our Chartered Accountants are business tax return experts. Our services are tailored specifically to Sole Traders, Partnerships, Trusts and Companies so you get the right support and advice needed for your business structure to maximise your return and receive accurate lodgements.

A business tax return can be prepared on a paper form, via your accounting software, or your Tax Agent can do it for you. Whichever lodgment method you use you must first ensure that:

  • Payroll is finalised with deductions, superannuation, and PAYG taxes correctly recorded.
  • All income and expenses are recorded and up to date.
  • Bank Accounts are reconciled.

To lodge your business tax return, you will need your accounts reconciled and financial statements prepared to report the company’s financial position.

POP can attend to the preparation and lodgement of the business tax return with a fast turnaround time of 10 business days.

The Business tax rate for base rate entities is 26% for the 2020/21 FY.  Businesses who don’t meet the base rate criteria will be taxed at a rate of 30%.

For Sole Traders and Partnerships, you’ll be taxed at your individual income tax rate which ranges with your income.  If you are operating in one of these structures it may be worth considering transitioning to a company-based structure to lower your business tax rate.

A small business can claim a wide variety of expenses. There are plenty of simple and legitimate ways you can cut down on your small business tax bill while meeting your tax obligations. 

Some may be;

  • Claim asset depreciation
  • Claim instant asset write-off, up to 30k per asset
  • Make concessional superannuation contributions
  • Keep a business vehicle logbook
  • Defer income and bring forward expenses
  • Claim deductions for expenses not paid by EOFY
  • Write-off bad debts
  • Pay tax-effective wages and dividends

The cost to lodge a business tax return depends on the size and complexity of your business and whether it’s structured as a sole trader, company, partnership or trust.

Here at POP Business, our business tax returns start at $1,210 including GST depending on your annual revenue.

As a sole trader or partnership, your business income is treated the same as personal income for tax purposes, and you’ll be taxed at your individual tax rate. However, you can still claim business deductions and credits when completing your tax return.
