Learn about Business Cashflow, Structure and Tax!
About this event
Logan Office of Economic Development (LOED) has partnered with Griffith University Tax Clinic and Small Business Financial Counselling Service to present you with this workshop.
Commencing a business is complex with many decisions required to be made. One of the decisions that sometimes is overlooked is the ‘tax’ implications of running a business. Tax is an important consideration as ignoring it can result in penalties and interest charges, but it can also influence the business’s cash flow. This series of workshops will provide an overview of important tax considerations that people about to commence a business should take into account.
About the workshop:
This workshop will consider how the business structures (whether a sole trader, partnership, company or trust) can influence who has the tax obligations, as well as the rate of tax. This workshop will explain:
- the basic premise of the different business structures
- the ideas behind what is business income, and
- what expenses are likely to be deductible.
