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.
You can claim numerous tax deductions as a sole trader. The trick is understanding all of them because you don’t want to claim anything you’re not entitled to, but you also don’t want to miss the little-known tax deductions that could save a bundle on your tax return.
About the workshop:
This workshop will consider what it means to be a sole trader, and what are tax obligations required, such as the need for an ABN, whether GST registration is needed, as well as the rate of income tax.
This workshop will explain:
- the basic premise of sole-trader (contractor)
- the ideas behind what is business income
- what expenses are likely to be deductible, and
- superannuation obligations
