Your helpful checklist for key dates this tax year

15 May

Acing it!

On this day in 1987, tennis champion Andy Murray was born in Glasgow, Scotland. Andy has won three Grand Slam singles titles, two at Wimbledon (2013 and 2016) and one at the US Open (2012). Think like Andy and make sure you keep your eye on the ball this tax time!

  • Lodge 2022 tax returns for all entities that did not have to lodge earlier (including all remaining consolidated groups), and are not eligible for the 5 June concession.
  • Due date for companies and super funds to pay if required.
Note: Individuals and trusts in this category pay as advised on their notice of assessment.


21 May

Airplane mode on. BAS lodged.

Today in 1932, Ameila Earhart became the first woman to fly solo non-stop across the Atlantic. Lodging your BAS may feel like a record-breaking mission, but remember, even Amelia had to file taxes.

  • Lodge and pay April 2023 monthly Business Activity Statement (BAS).
  • Lodge and pay 2022-23 Fringe Benefits Tax (FBT) annual return if lodging by paper.


28 May

Make that a double

Did you know that the United States has a National Burger Day? Did you also know that it’s today? Never has there been a better excuse to grab yourself one as a reward for getting your tax tasks done! Triple cheese, anyone?

Note: The super guarantee charge is not tax-deductible.

05 June

Get curious

If you were born today, that makes you a Gemini. Geminis are known for being curious and adaptable, but also for being inconsistent and indecisive. Now is a good time to get curious: make sure you have had all your tax-related questions answered, and avoid being indecisive!

  • Lodge 2022-23 tax returns with a lodgement due date of 15 May 2023 if the tax return is not required earlier and meets criteria.
Note: This includes companies and super funds but excludes large/medium taxpayers and head companies of consolidated groups.
  • Lodge 2022-23 tax returns due for individuals and trusts with a lodgement due date of 15 May 2023 provided they also pay any liability due by this date.

21 June


Feel that? The chill of winter is here, and so is the winter solstice, which falls between 21 and 23 June. This is the day that has the least daylight hours of any other day of the year. Make the most of it: pack it in early (provided that you’ve done your BAS), grab yourself a tea and snuggle up. 

  • Lodge and pay May 2023 monthly Business Activity Statement (BAS).

26 June


26 years ago today, the first book in the Harry Potter series was published. Likewise, submitting your taxes can feel like a magical journey as daunting as trying to find the Philosopher's Stone. Unfortunately, there's no spell to make the paperwork disappear. That's why we have helpful guides below.

  • Lodge and pay 2022-23 Fringe Benefits Tax (FBT) annual return if lodging via a tax agent.

30 June

It’s actually the end of the financial year!

So you’ve heard all of the ads about EOFY for weeks now, but finally, it really is the end. Pat yourself on the back: you’ve probably gotten all the hard stuff done (if you followed our trusty advice). It’s time to forget about tax and relax to the max. 

  • Super guarantee contributions must be received by your employees' fund by this date to qualify for a tax deduction in the 2022–23 financial year
  • Complete a stocktake if you have inventory.

01 July

Happy New (Financial) Year!

The countdown begins for tax returns. The deadline for most returns is October 21, however your tax accountant may be able to organise a later filing date depending on your business needs.

  • You can lodge your individual tax return from today until 31 October if you're preparing it yourself.
  • Compliance changes of tax tables, superannuation guarantee increase to 11%.

14 July

Vive la France!

Today is Bastille Day, the national day of France. What better time to have a croissant and make sure your employees have their payment summaries?

  • Tell your employees they can access their end-of-year income statement online through myGov

21 July

The Eagle has landed!

Today marks 52 years since Neil Armstrong set foot on the moon. What firsts will you check off today?

  • Lodge and pay June 2023 monthly Business Activity Statement (BAS).
  • Lodge and pay Payroll Tax.

28 July

Back from the dead...

On this day in 1932, the first feature-length zombie film, 'White Zombie', was released in New York City. Think of all the zombie films and TV shows released since then! If you're feeling like a zombie after EOFY, now's a great time to take a break!

  • Lodge and pay quarterly 2023 Business Activity Statement (BAS).
  • Make super guarantee contributions for Quarter 4 (Apr-Jun) of the 2022–23 financial year.

21 August

The Mona Lisa's big break

On this day in 1911, three tradies stole the Mona Lisa from the Louvre Museum in Paris. Don't let your monthly business activity statement slip through your fingers. Unlike the painting, you won't want it to disappear for two years before resurfacing!

  • Lodge and pay July 2023 monthly Business Activity Statement (BAS).

28 August

A delicious pivot

Did you know Worcestershire Sauce was invented by a pair of pharmacists? John Lea and William Perrins cooked up the condiment in their lab on this day in 1837, which indirectly led to the establishment of a research lab at Oxford University and the creation of the Bloody Mary cocktail.

  • Lodge Taxable Payments Annual Report (TPAR).

21 September

Crack open a cold cola

More than 50 years ago today, Coca Cola made history by introducing the plastic bottle, but don't bottle up your tax responsibilities. Remember to complete your taxes and avoid any fizzles with the ATO!

  • Lodge and pay August 2023 monthly Business Activity Statement (BAS).

28 October

Microsoft. Word.

On this day in 1955, the tech world was gifted with the birth of Bill Gates, the mastermind behind Microsoft. While we can't all be software giants, we can take charge of our financial responsibilities. Lodge and pay your quarterly BAS, even if it's not as exciting as creating revolutionary computer programs.

  • Lodge and pay Q1 (July-September) Business Activity Statement (BAS) if you pay quarterly.
  • Make superannuation guarantee contributions for Q1 (July-September) by this date to avoid paying the superannuation guarantee charge.

Nothing scarier than overdue paperwork!

Boo! Today is Halloween, a day celebrated in many different ways but best known for ghost costumes and copious amounts of sugar. It's also the tax return lodgement deadline!

  • Final date to lodge tax return, unless you aren't required to lodge a tax return or you use a registered tax or BAS agent.
  • Lodge Annual GST return.

All your questions about the 2022-23 End of Financial Year, answered

What is the end of financial year in Australia? Toggle Section

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 marks 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.

When is the start and end of the financial year? Toggle Section

The start of the financial year in Australia is on 1 July, and the end of the financial year is on June 30th of the following year. This period covers a 12-month cycle and is the standard financial year for businesses and individuals in Australia. During this time, businesses and individuals need to meet various obligations to the Australian Taxation Office (ATO).

What do I need to do for the End of Financial Year? Toggle Section

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:

  1. Organise your receipts, invoices and other financial documents from throughout the year.
  2. Lodge your tax returns with the ATO. The due dates for this are 31st October for individuals and 31st December for businesses.
  3. If you are an employer, you need to make sure you have made all required superannuation contributions for your employees by the end of the financial year.

If you have MYOB, you can easily manage expenses throughout the year and lodge your tax return in a few simple clicks. Learn more about how MYOB Business can help you.

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 2023 tax return? Toggle Section

The lodgement period for individual tax returns in Australia typically begins on 1 July and runs through to 31 October of the following year. Therefore, you should be able to lodge your 2023 tax return with the Australian Taxation Office (ATO) from 1 July 2023. If you are unsure about your lodgement deadline, you should check with the ATO or seek advice from a qualified tax professional.

You can prepare and submit your tax return before the lodgement period opens. However, the ATO won't process your lodgement until the period officially begins on 1 July.

How do I complete a business tax return? Toggle Section

Completing a business tax return in Australia can be a complex process, but with MYOB Business you can reduce errors and all the double-handling. You can try it for free for 30 days and see how it'll make your tax-time to-do list a little easier.

Here's a general outline of the steps involved in completing a tax return without software:

  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. But, 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. Check out our guide to how tax works in Australia for more information. It may be helpful to seek advice from a qualified accountant or tax professional.
