  • 6My employer is offering salary sacrifice, what does it mean? What should I do?

    There is no restriction on the types of benefits that can be sacrifice. The important thing is that these benefits form part of your remuneration, replacing what otherwise could have been paid as salary. The types of benefits generally provided in salary sacrifice arrangements by employers include fringe benefits, exempt benefits and superannuation.

    Common fringe benefits include:

    • Cars, property (including goods, real property such as land and buildings and shares or bonds), expense payments (such as the payment of your loan repayments, school fees, child care costs and home phone costs).
    • Superannuation - Salary sacrificed superannuation contributions under an effective salary sacrifice arrangement are considered to be employer contributions which, when paid for an employee to a complying superannuation fund, are not fringe benefits. However, superannuation contributions made for the benefit of an associate, such as your spouse, are a fringe benefit. Similarly, contributions paid to a non-complying superannuation fund will be a fringe benefit.

  • 7What if I get a penalty for non lodgement of my tax Return? What can I do?

    With penalties imposed by the ATO we can assist you in lodging an objection.

  • 8What is the $20,000 the Government has announced in the Budget?

    The Government has proposed to expand accelerated depreciation by allowing small businesses with aggregated annual turnover of less than $2 million to immediately deduct each asset that cost less than $20,000. The measure will apply to assets acquired from 7.30pm on 12 May 2015 until 30 June 2017.

    This will replace the previous instant asset write-off threshold of $1,000.

    Assets excluded from these depreciation rules include horticultural plants and in-house software allocated to a software development pool. In most cases specific depreciation rules apply to these excluded assets.
