2019 Tax Time Toolkit

2019 Tax Time Toolkit, a helpful directory for small businesses this tax time

Small businesses are the backbone of our economy. They employ more than 5.5 million people, contribute $380 billion to the economy and make up more than 99% of all Australian businesses.

The ATO are committed to making it easier for small businesses to meet their tax and super obligations, and so have released a new business tool kit.

This toolkit has practical information to help small business owners and operators at tax time and throughout the year. It is one of the better publications released by the ATO.

This toolkit contains messages about tax time which are ready to use, including:

  • a directory of links to information, tools, calculators and services to support small business
  • a range of fact sheets
  • an introduction to Single Touch Payroll (STP) for small employers
