A Timely Reminder - It's Almost That Time of The Year Again!!!!
If you're based in Australia, it's getting close to that time of the year again - June 30 - end of financial year - Yay (NOT)!!!!!!! 8=)
Time to sift through the drawers of that filing cabinet and go through all those shoe boxes full of receipts that you've hidden in that back room to get your paperwork ready to go.
Time to scrounge through the glovebox of your car for all the paperwork that has been stuffed in there when you couldn't be bothered filing them away.
Time to try and get your hand down between the cushions of your car seats to find all those missing receipts that you just know are down there.
It gets better - it's also time to begin the annual "haranguing" of your partner to try and get them to empty out their wallet and pockets for all those receipts that you know they haven't given you - and all those other "wonderful" things you need to worry about every year to make sure you claim as many tax deductions as possible!!!
Hey - and remember - it's also time to get in contact with your Accountant for that review of your financials before it is too late to claim all your entitlements.
If you have been listening to the BookPals Business Sanity Podcast you would remember we spoke with Pauline Murray of Pauline R Murray Accountants back in February who suggested business owners should get in contact with their Accountant a month or so before the end of the financial year to allow them time to review their financial position prior to lodging their end of year tax return, so now's the time to make that phone call and book that appointment to ensure all your financials are ready to go for the end of the financial year.
Oh - and by the way - if you want to make sure you don't have to go through this headache again this time next year, don't you think it might be a good idea to register for BookPals now?
