It’s almost that time of year again – tax time. Whether you are one of the 3.5 million Australians that lodge their own tax return or the almost 10 million that use a tax agent you will have work to do!
There are two good reasons to start thinking about tax now. First, there may be things you need to do this financial year to reduce the amount of tax you have to pay and second, if you start now you will have less work to after the end of the financial year.
Over the next 10 weeks we will send MoneyBrilliant customers specific information about tax issues to help them prepare. We will help them understand things they might consider doing before the end of year and provide information about specific types of tax deductions that we think are relevant to them.
Customers using MoneyBrilliant Plus or customers of a MoneyBrilliant Partner can also use MoneyBrilliant’s Tax Deductions feature to automatically identify expenses that might be tax deductible, record details about them and capture receipts. If they have a tax adviser they can also share their deduction details with their adviser.
The Tax Deductions feature is just one of the extra features enjoyed by MoneyBrilliant Plus customers. You can read more about MoneyBrilliant Plus, including our Money Back Guarantee, here and you can see a demonstration of the MoneyBrilliant Tax Deductions feature here.
You can upgrade your account at any time by going to the Plan & Billing page on the MoneyBrilliant desktop app or the Settings – Subscriptions page in the MoneyBrilliant iOs and Android apps.
