Work & You – Tax Refund on Spot

Being employed will mean you are accepting
a compensation or a pay, and you could be full-time, part-time, casual, a
contractual worker or expert. Be that as it may, what do they all mean? What’s
more, how can that influence how you get paid – and how you are taxed?

Full-time

A man employed on a permanent premise,
working the grant recommended least hours every week, paid consistently, and
qualified for every one of the advantages and leave privileges.

Part-time

A man employed on a permanent premise,
working consistent hours that are inside of a base and greatest characterized
number of hours every week, and entitled for the advantages with respect to the
quantity of hours worked. Part time representatives are entitled for the same
working conditions as full-time representatives, including, by and large, the
same hourly rate of pay.

Casual

Casual representatives take a shot at an
hourly or regular schedule, however by and large work less hours than the
conventional week by week working hours of a full-time worker. To make up for
passing up a great opportunity for the advantages recompensed full and part
time employees, additional stacking is added to casual’s pay. Casual employees
can work the same number of hours or shifts as a full-time employee and still
not be viewed as lasting. A few working environments however may be required to
offer full-time work to an casual who works conventional hours after a certain
maintained time of doing as such.

Contractor

As a rule, contractors (or consultants) are
independently employed individuals utilized for a particular task, at a
concurred cost, considering a particular objective, and regularly over a
pre-decided time period. They set their own hours of work and deal with their
own tax obligation. They aren’t paid a salary or hourly rate, and because they
aren’t an employee, a contractor’s position is more effectively fired than a
“permanent” employee. Being a contactor’s worker does have tax
implication.

Payment

Wages and salaries are the most well-known sorts of employee payments. Wage is viewed as a pay if the work is standard and wages if it is not consistent. Both must be announced in full on your tax return – unless particularly exempted.

Leaving the Workforce

For people who are retiring, there are a variety of options for making the change.

Under the change to retirement rules, if you have reached your preservation age you may be capable to decrease your working hours without reducing your income. You can do this by topping up your part-time income with a regular ‘income stream’ from your super savings. If you are over 60 years old, this income stream may be tax free.

On the other hand, you must be alert of the impact this can have on you and your situation. ATO recommends you see a financial adviser, accountant or your tax agent to help you make a decision if this option is right for you.

Employers still need to make essential super guarantee contributions for all their qualified employees – including people who are making the transition to giving up work.

When you Can Claim a GST Credit

You must be registered for GST to claim GST credits.

You can maintain a credit for any GST included in the price you pay for things that you use in your business. This is called a GST credit (or input-tax credit, a credit for the tax included in the price of your business inputs).

You claim GST credits in your activity statement.

You can claim GST credits if the following four conditions apply:

  • you aim to use your purchase solely or partly in carrying on your business and the purchase does not communicate to making input-taxed supplies
  • the purchase price included GST
  • you provide, or are liable to provide, payment for the item you purchased
  • You have a tax invoice from your supplier (for purchases more than $82.50).

You cannot claim a GST credit:

  • without a valid tax invoice
  • for purchases that do not have GST in the price
  • for wages you pay to staff (there is no GST on wages)
  • For motor vehicles priced above a certain limit.

Goods and services that don’t have GST in their price include:

  • GST-free items (such as basic foods)
  • Input-taxed items (such as bank fees and loan interest)
  • Purchases from a business that is not registered for GST (and therefore cannot charge GST).

When you can’t claim GST credit

You also cannot maintain GST credits for the following, even if GST is included in the price:

  • purchases you intend to use for private or domestic purposes
  • purchases you intend to use to make input-taxed supplies, such as those associated with providing residential accommodation
  • some purchases that you can’t claim as an income tax deduction, such as entertainment expenses
  • Land purchases under the margin scheme.

Senior Australians – Tax Offsets

Mature age workers, seniors and pensioners may be eligible for tax offsets. If you are a short income earner, you may be entitled for an offset and, if your medical expenses pass the threshold limit, you may be entitled for the medical expenses tax offset too. You may also be eligible for an offset if you receive earnings from a superannuation income stream

If you are a Senior Australian, you may be entitled for the seniors and pensioners tax offset.

The seniors and pensioners tax offset (SAPTO) can decrease the amount of tax you are liable to pay. In some cases, this offset may reduce your tax liability to zero and you may not have to lodge a tax return.

To be eligible for this tax offset, you have to meet certain conditions connecting to your income and eligibility for an Australian Government pension.

If you are a senior, you must meet the age requirement for the Age pension to be eligible for the offset.

In some cases, you may also be able to move your eligible spouse’s unused SAPTO to you. We calculate their transfer amount available and include this amount when calculating your SAPTO.

If you have reached the age pension age, the seniors and pensioners tax offset lets you earn more money before you must pay tax or the Medicare levy. There are a range of eligibility circumstances which relate to age, income, and eligibility for Australian government pensions or allowances.

One-third of actual expenses method

  • Your car must have travelled more than 5,000 business kilometres in the income year (or, if you used the car for only part of the year, it would have travelled more than 5,000 business kilometres had you used it for the whole year).
  • You claim one-third of all your car expenses, including private costs (but excluding capital costs, such as the purchase price, the principal on any money borrowed to buy your car and the cost of any improvements).
  • For fuel and oil costs, you can keep receipts to work out the amounts or you can estimate them based on odometer records that show readings from the start and the end of the period you had the car during the year.
  • You need written evidence for all the other expenses for the car, as well as records that show the car’s engine capacity, make, model and registration number.

As a joint owner, you can deduct one-third of your share of jointly incurred expenses and depreciation, and one-third of expenses wholly incurred by you.

Other travel expenses

Other travel expenses you may be able to claim include:

  • travel expenses you incurred for meals, accommodation and incidentals while away overnight for work, such as going to an interstate work conference (generally, you can’t claim for meals if your travel did not involve an overnight stay)
  • the costs you actually incur (such as fuel costs) when using a borrowed car or a vehicle other than a car for work purposes
  • air, bus, train, tram and taxi fares
  • Car-hire fees.

You may have to show that you have reduced your claim to exclude any private portion of your trip.

Logbook method

  • Your claim is based on the business-use percentage of the expenses for the car.
  • Expenses include running costs and decline in value but not capital costs, such as the purchase price of your car, the principal on any money borrowed to buy it and any improvement costs.
  • To work out your business-use percentage, you need a logbook and the odometer readings for the logbook period.
  • You can claim fuel and oil costs based on either your actual receipts or you can estimate the expenses based on odometer records that show readings from the start and the end of the period you had the car during the year.
  • You need written evidence for all other expenses for the car.
