clsy8d5aq000d08leehw61e23 Australia’s love affair with SMSFs continues

Valid Invalid date - Invalid date

Establishing a self managed superannuation fund (SMSF) offers a variety of benefits, so it is perhaps no surprise that in the latest data released by the ATO, the number of SMSFs in Australia continues to grow as more people seek to take advantage of control and flexibility offered. However, taxpayers seeking to establish SMSFs should also be aware of the challenges and considerations that can significantly impact these funds’ suitability for individual retirement planning, such as the complexity and responsibilities involved.

clso8fkfq000b08l6dqdoehkz FBT electric vehicle home charging rate

Valid Invalid date - Invalid date

With the rise in businesses purchasing EVs for the use of their employees, the ATO has finalised its guidelines setting out the methodology for calculating the cost of electricity when an eligible electric vehicle is charged at an employee’s or an individual’s home. The rate of 4.20 cents per km has been listed as the appropriate figure and will apply from 1 April 2022 and later FBT years. To use this rate, employers will need to keep a record of the distance travelled by car and a valid logbook must be maintained if the operating cost method is used.

Valid Invalid date - Invalid date

With the revelation that an increasing number of ordinary professional Australians are turning to establishing offshore companies as a way to decrease the amount of tax paid in Australia, the ATO has warned against the move and is using the many tools available to it to tackle the problem before it becomes established. This includes using advance data analytics to identify and cross-reference information from various sources, actively participating in the exchange of tax information with various countries and gathering information through multi-agency taskforces.

Valid Invalid date - Invalid date

With the government finally caving into pressure to change the stage 3 tax cuts despite previous promises to keep the already legislated measure, new proposed tax rates have been flagged to come into place from 1 July 2024 which largely benefits those earning less than $45,000. The government will now be starting a campaign to win support for these proposed changes from various senators to ensure amending legislation is introduced and passed before 1 July 2024 when the original stage 3 changes were due to apply.

Valid Invalid date - Invalid date

Following two prominent High Court decisions which dealt with the distinction between employees and independent contractors, the ATO has sought to provide guidance to businesses in the form of a Taxation Ruling. The most significant departure from its previous position is that the ATO now considers that various indicia of employment identified in case law, while relevant, should only be considered in respect of the legal rights and obligations between the parties, with the most important factor the holistic consideration of the contract between the parties.

Valid Invalid date - Invalid date

As 2024 approaches, the ATO has highlighted three areas of focus for businesses which will persist into the new year. These include steps to address cyber security and increased protection of personal data, addressing the growth in the collectable debt book particularly for small businesses, and improving overall tax performance and stamping out the shadow economy. The takeaway message for businesses, especially small businesses, for the coming year is to be proactive and engaged with the ATO in terms of any unpaid tax or super debts and securing their data.

Owners of holiday homes should be aware that deductions may not be able to be claimed where a property is not genuinely available for rent. Factors that may indicate a property is not genuinely available for rent may surprise, and could include “unreasonable or stringent conditions” placed on renting out the property, such as “no children” and “no pets”. In instances where there is a short-term accommodation restriction by the State or Local government for part of the year, or where the owner uses the property for personal purposes for part of the year, expenses may have to be apportioned.

Valid Invalid date - Invalid date

The ATO has apologised for the “unnecessary distress” caused to taxpayers with its recent awareness campaign around tax debts that were previously put on hold. Recently, the ATO had written to some small businesses with debts on hold greater than $50 to inform them that offsetting of debts will apply. It notes that the purpose of the letters was to ensure that taxpayers had full visibility of their existing debts with the ATO, however, it will pause the campaign to allow a review into its overall approach to debts on hold before progressing any further.

In the most recent employer super guarantee compliance and obligations report from the ATO, most employers seem to be doing the right thing by their employees and complying with super guarantee obligations without intervention. This rate has remained steady from the previous year. Going forward, as a part of the government announced a package to move to “pay day” super, the ATO will have improved SG recovery targets each year which is to commence from the 2026-27 financial year.

ASIC has published an investor alert list which may help consumers to identify whether entities they are considering investing with could be fraudulent, a scam or unlicensed.

The alert list also includes imposter entities. For consumers looking to invest, ASIC recommends conducting various checks before handing over any money.

Valid Invalid date - Invalid date

At a recent conference, the ATO’s GST focus areas for 2023-24 were outlined. In addition to its previous focus on small businesses, the ATO will also implement a targeted industry strategy in relation to privately owned high wealth groups focusing on retail, construction, and retirement village industries. It is hoped that this targeted approach will allow the ATO to understand the distinctive issues facing each industry and pinpoint areas or risk to develop tailored approaches to ensure entities within particular industries are paying the correct amount of GST.

cloi5dkg9000b08l870zac9ko International businesses and GST

Valid Invalid date - Invalid date

GST is a broad-based tax on 10% of most goods, services and other items sold or consumed in Australia. It doesn’t just apply to Australian businesses; international businesses may need to register and pay Australian GST if their GST turnover from sales connected to Australia is AUD$75,000 or more over a 12-month period. For most international businesses, the easiest way to manage this obligation is to apply for simplified GST registration with the ATO, which will allow for online lodgment and payment of GST obligations.

In an effort to reduce wage theft and prevent losses in retirement income for many Australians, the government is seeking to legislate its payday super measure, as first proposed in the 2023-24 Federal Budget. As the first step, a consultation paper has been released which proposes two models that could be used to implement the measure. Based on the outcomes of the consultation, the government will redesign the super compliance framework to incorporate payday super, which is proposed to commence from 1 July 2026 subject to the passage of legislation.

Individuals participating in the sharing economy should be aware that transactions for supplying taxi travel/ride sourcing and short-term accommodation are now required to be reported under the Sharing Economy Report Regime.

Valid Invalid date - Invalid date

The Commissioner has flagged a return to firmer debt collection actions after seeing a trend of profitable businesses that have the capacity to pay their tax debts but are actively choosing not to. It warns business taxpayers not to treat ATO liabilities like a free loan, and reiterates that businesses are only temporary custodians of GST, PAYG withholding and super guarantee. In addition to applying General Interest Charge (GIC) to unpaid debts, the ATO also has stronger enforcements actions in its arsenal including issuing garnishee notices and legal action.

clmu3ffjf000d08lb7pl52kha Compliance actions available to the ATO: SMSFs

Valid Invalid date - Invalid date

In response to an increasing number of SMSFs identified as not complying with their superannuation obligations, the ATO has increased scrutiny of the sector. It is essential for SMSF trustees to understand the range of compliance actions available to the ATO in the event of non-compliance and proactive ways to address gaps to avoid more severe consequences for both the trustee and the fund. According to the ATO, where a contravention has occurred, trustees cannot escape consequences by winding up the SMSF and rolling over benefits to an APRA regulated fund.

Valid Invalid date - Invalid date

The ATO has ramped up compliance activity in the self managed super fund (SMSF) space in response to an increasing number of funds that have been identified as not complying with superannuation obligations. For the 2023 year, the ATO says it has issued double the amount of tax and penalties when compared with the 2022 income year, and the number of disqualifications has tripled. According to the ATO, the most common reason for applying penalties was SMSFs allowing illegal early access of super benefits by fund members.

With the cost of living crisis and increase in interest rates hitting Australian households, there is growing evidence that many are falling into financial stress.

Sue, Luke and the other staff at Trinity are simply amazing. We took our audit to them and they had it done in about 2 weeks time. The previous accountant took nearly 5 months to get the exact same thing done for us, with the same level of information we provided. I've found their services to be competitively priced as well. I highly recommend this accountant if you want to deal with a professional organisation.
