The get-a-better-tax-return checklist for SMEs

End of financial year is a race to the finish for small businesses as they remember all the things they should do ahead of the tax deadline. SMEs rush to buy goods, and pay or prepay invoices and bills before 30 June to yield a better tax return.  

Here’s a quick run-down of the things SMEs should do ahead of the tax deadline

  • Advertising: Run an EOFY ad campaign by buying digital ads (Facebook, Instagram, etc.) now and paying for them later 
  • Bills and expenses: Pay your rent, insurance, electricity or fuel 
  • Inventory: Stock up on inventory, refurbish or spring clean your office
  • Invoices: Pay bills  
  • Retail goods: Buy the hardware, stationery, equipment or new tools that they need
  • Services: Build a new website, get IR support or an accountant’s advice
