Tax returns cover the financial year from 1 July to 30 June, and if you’re lodging your own, they are due by the 31 October deadline. But what if you missed the deadline?
If you’ve missed the deadline, don’t worry! You can still have your tax return filed by a registered tax agent.
If you use a tax agent (like us at Cutting Ronksley & Associates) to prepare and lodge your tax return, the chances are you simply don’t need to worry about the 31 October deadline because it probably doesn’t apply to you. That’s because most registered tax agents have special lodgement program and can lodge returns for their clients after the usual 31 October deadline.
If you don't lodge with an accountant and you've missed the deadline, your tax return is now considered late. This means you may be liable to pay a late lodgement penalty to the tax office. So, it definitely pays to lodge as quickly as possible to avoid late penalties. If you’ve missed the deadline and you’re not registered with a tax agent and want to minimise any potential penalties, please get in touch with us now.
We’re a friendly team of registered tax advisers who can help you get your tax sorted. No matter how complex your tax return is, no matter how old your tax return is, no matter how good or bad you may feel about your financial situation, we can help.
Based in Strathalbyn, just 50 minutes’ drive from Adelaide, we service clients across the Adelaide Hills and Fleurieu Peninsula and would love to help you out next.
