Taxation

Australia has a complex taxation system that includes various taxes at the federal, state, and local levels. The Australian Taxation Office (ATO) is responsible for administering the tax system and collecting taxes. 


Corporate Taxation:

- The corporate tax rate in Australia is 30% for most companies. Small businesses with an annual turnover of less than AUD 50 million are eligible for a lower tax rate of 25%.

- Companies are required to file their tax returns annually, and the tax year runs from July 1st to June 30th.

- The deadline for lodging a company tax return is usually October 31st, following the end of the financial year. However, if you use a tax agent, you may be eligible for an extension.

- Companies are also required to make quarterly tax instalments based on their expected tax liability for the current financial year.


Personal Taxation:

- The personal income tax system in Australia is progressive, meaning that individuals pay higher tax rates as their income increases.

- For the tax year 2021-2022, the tax-free threshold is AUD 18,200, and the highest marginal tax rate of 45% applies to income over AUD 180,000.

- Individuals are required to file their tax returns annually, and the tax year runs from July 1st to June 30th.

- The deadline for lodging an individual tax return is usually October 31st, following the end of the financial year. However, if you use a tax agent, you may be eligible for an extension.

- Employees also have taxes withheld from their paychecks throughout the year, known as Pay As You Go (PAYG) withholding.


Goods and Services Tax (GST):

- The GST is a value-added tax of 10% that applies to most goods and services sold in Australia.

- Businesses with an annual turnover of less than AUD 75,000 are not required to register for GST, while businesses with a turnover above this threshold must register and collect GST from their customers.

- Businesses are required to file GST returns quarterly or annually, depending on their turnover.


It's recommended that companies and individuals seek the advice of a tax professional or the ATO for specific taxation requirements and deadlines.
