Company Accounting

Company Accounting
Most businesses in Australia are defined by the government as a small business:  a business with annual turnover of less than $2 M. At Hurstville Accountant majority of our clients are small businesses. If your business turnover is between $75000 and $2 M, you have to lodge BAS quarterly and must register GST, PAYG and pay employee superannuation.


1. BAS quarterly lodgement:

BAS must be lodged before the 28th of each month following the quarter, this does not apply to the month of January, whereby BAS must be lodged before February 28th instead. You have to remember that 28/2, 28/4, 28/7, 28/10 are the deadline dates for BAS lodgement. ATO might penalize you without warning if not lodged before the deadline. Hurstville Accountant advises all clients to not take any risks with unnecessary delays.

Hurstville Accountant provides bookkeeping and BAS lodgement services. You can just leave your bank statement and all source documents with us and we will ensure it is all done on time.

You can do your own bookkeeping by yourself, and we will lodge it for you after checking your work to make sure everything is done properly.


2. PAYG Tax with hold:

We have to lodge Tax with Hold quarterly as well.  Many clients might forget this issue. ATO are entitled to give warnings or penalties to late lodgement as well.

The company’s new employees must fill out the registration form. Employees have to provide TFN, DOB, Address etc. Some employers might ignore this especially for temporary employees. Therefore this part of wage cannot be deducted from expenses. And you cannot pay the full amount of payment to employee because the company has the duty to hold prepaid tax with the ATO.

3. Superannuation is 9.5% of wage, it may be subject to adjustments by the Australian government.  The company has to pay super if the employees wage is over a certain limit.


4. Company annual tax return:

Company annual tax return deadline is the end of March in the following year. Hurstville Accountant tries our best to maximize your earnings between company and director shareholder.

Currently the company tax rate is 28.5%. it means you have to pay 28.5% of your company profit as a company tax. Company tax is different with GST, many clients are often confused with the two different concepts


5. Financial Report:

Annual company financial report is a statement of the company assets, liabilities, and capital for a business over the financial year, it details the company’s balance of income and expenditure over the whole year. It is also very important to help continue the company accounts for next year.

Have more time focus your business
It is the best way to hire an experience professional tax accountant to dealing with all of those complexities of tax issues. So you have more valuable time to focus on your own business.
