Logan Office of Economic Development (LOED) has partnered with Griffith University Tax Clinic to present you with this workshop.
While you are running your business, your retirement may be the last thing you are thinking of. However, if you’re self-employed, it could be a good idea to consider your retirement needs and understand how paying yourself super could benefit you and your business. What you may not realise, is you could be legally required to pay yourself super based on how your business is set up. Another important thing to remember is you need to pay super to eligible employees under the super guarantee system.
About the workshop:
This workshop will consider how paying yourself super can influence your tax obligations, as well as your business deductions.
This workshop will look at:
- How your super obligations are influenced by the way you set up your business (sole trader, partnership, company and trust)
- When is a tax deduction available for your super contribution, and
- Your super obligations you have for workers of your business.
