Frequently asked questions

When is End of Financial Year?


The End of the Financial Year (EOFY) in Australia is on June 30th. It is the date on which the Australian financial year ends and the next financial year begins. EOFY is an important date for businesses and individuals in Australia.

June 30 makes the deadline for various financial reporting and compliance requirements, such as tax returns, financial statements and superannuation contributions. Additionally, it is a common time for businesses to review their financial performance and plan for the upcoming year.

What key tasks do I need to do at EOFY?


The specific tasks you need to do for the end of the financial year in Australia will depend on your circumstances. If you’re an individual taxpayer, a sole trader, or a business owner, tax time will be a different story.

However, here are some general tasks you may need to consider:

Organise your receipts, invoices and other financial documents from throughout the year.

Lodge your tax returns with the ATO. The due dates for this are 31st October for individuals and 31st December for businesses.

If you’re an employer, you need to make sure you have made all required superannuation contributions for your employees by the end of the financial year.

These are just some of the tasks you may need to consider for the end of the financial year in Australia. It’s always a good idea to stay informed about your obligations and seek professional advice if needed.

When can I lodge my 2024 tax return?


The lodgement period for individual tax returns in Australia typically begins on 1 July and runs through to 31 October of the following year.

How do I complete a business tax return?


Completing a business tax return in Australia can be a complex process, but here’s a general outline of the steps involved:

1. Gather your financial records
Including all your business income and expenses for the financial year. It’s helpful to have any other relevant financial information on hand, such as bank statements, balance sheets and profit and loss statements.

2. Complete the tax return form
The form you need to complete will depend on your business structure. For example, sole traders and partnerships generally need to complete an individual tax return. However, companies and trusts need to complete a company tax return.

3. Include all income
Make sure that you include all income earned by your business during the financial year, including any interest, dividends, or capital gains.

4. Deduct expenses
Deduct any business expenses that you are eligible to claim, such as rent, utilities, salaries and office supplies. Be sure to keep accurate records of all expenses.

5. Calculate depreciation
If you have any depreciable assets (e.g plants and equipment), you may be able to claim a deduction for their depreciation.

6. Review your tax return
Check your tax return carefully to ensure that all information is accurate and complete.

7. Lodge your tax return
Lodge your tax return with the Australian Taxation Office (ATO) by the relevant deadline. The end of February of the following year is the deadline for company tax returns. Partnerships and trusts are due in May and sole traders are due in October.

It's important to note that completing a business tax return can be complex, and the tax rules and regulations can change from year to year. It may be helpful to seek advice from a qualified accountant or tax professional.
