Understanding the End of the Financial Year:

In Australia, the financial year spans from the 1st of July to the 30th of June, divided into four fiscal quarters: July to September, October to December, January to March, and April to June. Small business owners are required to submit their tax returns for the financial year between the 1st of July and 31st of October, as stipulated by the Australian Taxation Office (ATO).

How Our Checklist Can Help:

Our EOFY Checklist serves as an invaluable tool for small businesses, ensuring that you cover all the essential steps required to prepare for the end of the financial year. This checklist provides guidance and actionable advice to simplify the EOFY processes and streamline your bookkeeping tasks.

Your Team for EOFY Preparation:

To navigate the end of the financial year successfully, assembling the right team of professionals is essential. Consider the following key members for your EOFY preparation team:

You, the Small Business Owner:

As the driving force behind your business, you play a vital role in gathering necessary documents, reviewing financial records, and understanding your business’s unique financial situation.

Us, as Your Bookkeeper:

An experienced bookkeeper – like us – can assist in organising and maintaining accurate financial records, ensuring that you have a clear overview of your business’s financial health and facilitating the preparation of your tax obligations.

The Australian Taxation Office (ATO):

As the governing body responsible for tax matters, the ATO sets guidelines, deadlines, and reporting requirements for small businesses. Staying informed about their regulations and updates is essential to fulfilling your obligations promptly and accurately.
