Year End Tax Tips


Year-End Tax Tips

It is never too late or early to thinking about ways to reduce your tax bill. According to savvy tax advisors here are some of the top five suggestions: 1. Defer income. Unless you think that next year you will move into a higher personal income tax bracket you may want to defer income until after June 30. Interest, dividends, royalties, insurance proceeds or rent all count so until the money is physically received (paid/credited) it can be deferred. 2. Accelerate Deductions. So that you can get deductions and claim them in the current financial year write off bad debts, scrap stock and plant equipment of nil value, home office costs, ensure superannuation payments, etc are paid by year end. Also pre-paid expenses are deductible in the year in which they are paid. This includes things like subscriptions, business travel, business related seminars or other expenses like educational courses that relate to your business or work. 3. Gifts. If you have extra cash, donate money to an ATO approved charity on or before June 30. Save the receipts and use the charitable donations as deductions on your tax return. 4. Sale of investments. You can delay capital gains tax by delaying the sale of investments such as stocks until after June 30. 5. Tax Rebates. It pays to know what you are entitled to. What you can claim will depend on your family circumstances and income but some of the most common things to think about are: childcare expenses, private health insurance, medical expenses, dependent spouse rebate, low-income rebate plus tax offsets for senior Australians.
