Paying your income tax 

In Australia, individuals are required to pay income tax on their earnings. As the saying goes there are two certainties in life - death and taxes! 

The amount of tax you need to pay depends on various factors, including your taxable income, residency status, the specific financial year and any applicable deductions or exemptions. The Australian financial year runs from July 1 to June 30, and tax returns are usually lodged by 31 October following the end of the financial year. But accountants have later due dates.

To pay tax in Australia, you will need to obtain a Tax File Number (TFN) from the ATO. Your employer will ask for your TFN when you start a new job, and they will withhold tax from your wages based on your income and tax bracket. This is known as Pay As You Go (PAYG) withholding. 

At the end of the financial year, you will need to lodge your tax return with the ATO to reconcile your total income and deductions for the year. If you have paid more tax than you owe, you may be eligible for a tax refund. And so, if you have paid less tax than you owe, you will need to pay the remaining amount. 

The Australian Tax Office regulations change frequently and so it is important to ensure you comply with the current tax laws and regulations in Australia. The team at Coleman Financial Group are up to date with these changes and can help you get the best outcome on your income tax return.

Understanding a tax return for individuals

Taxable income refers to the portion of an individual's income that is subject to tax. It is calculated by subtracting allowable deductions and exemptions from the total income. 

To determine your taxable income, you typically start with your total income, which includes various sources such as: 

  • Employment income: Salaries, wages, bonuses, tips, and commissions. 
  • Self-employment income: Company's income earned from operating a business or working as a sole trader.  
  • Investment income: Earnings from investments like interest, dividends, and capital gains. 
  • Rental income: Income generated from renting out property. 
  • Retirement income: Pensions, annuities, and distributions from retirement accounts. 
  • Other income sources: Spousal maintenance, royalties, and certain types of grants. 

Another area in which we have an abundance of experience and wealth of knowledge is with foreign income and deceased estates both of which affect your taxable income. These two areas can prove quite tricky to navigate if your accountant is unfamiliar with dealing with the intricacies of these two items. If you are still confused contact us or seek guidance from the ATO. If you make a mistake as a result of not understanding your obligations, you can still face fines and penalties.
