Get your business ready for EOFY

Financial year-end can be a stressful time for small businesses, but it doesn’t have to be. Here’s what you need to get through it, and some tips on how to minimise the drama.

What is the Australian financial year?

The Australian financial year (also the Australian tax year) runs from 1 July to 30 June. At midnight on 30 June, the financial year ends, your business books are closed, and you report your financial situation to the Australian Tax Office (ATO). They use this information to figure out how much tax you owe.

Getting Single Touch Payroll compliant

Single Touch Payroll is changing the way businesses in Australia report their salaries, wages, PAYG withholdings and superannuation to the Australian Tax Office this financial year. Make sure you're compliant this EOFY.
