Tax Time: Our Top Tips

Tax Time tips

In anticipation of a new financial year, we chatted to one of our Personal Organisers to get the lowdown on how to get your tax paperwork organised and under control, minus the stress.

1. START NOW

If you’re new to setting up an effective tax paperwork system (effective being the key word), start getting organised now, so when the new financial year arrives, you’re not left anxiously searching for lost documents late at night when you should be sleeping.

2. STORE DOCUMENTS IN ONE PLACE

Save time searching for paperwork by keeping all relevant documents in one spot. If your tax is relatively simple, keep all paperwork together in a Manila Folder in your Step File or, if you have a larger quantity of tax-related paper, store it in an A4 Storage Box.

3. SET UP A TAX FILING SYSTEM

Take the time to set up a system now and you’ll save time down the track and reap the benefits for years to come. Learn how to set up an effective and efficient tax filing system here.

4. DO A LITTLE, OFTEN

Rather than spending all weekend (or longer) sorting documents when tax time rolls around, make a regular appointment with yourself in your diary to maintain paperwork. You could even use the arrival of your bank statement as a prompt to yourself to sort through the receipts from that corresponding time period.

5. ORGANISE RECEIPTS

This might seem simple, but it can be a big task if you leave it too long. Use a My Receipts Folder or Receipts Book to keep receipts organised in one spot. For individual tax returns, sort your receipts by category. For businesses, you may prefer to sort by month, especially if you have to compile BAS statements throughout the year.

Note: Only keep receipts that you may need to refer to in future. As yourself, ‘What are you tax deductable items/allowances?’ Discard the rest. If you don’t know what you’ll need, ask your advisor. One quick phone call can save you years of filing paperwork ‘just in case’.

6. ASK FOR HELP

If you’re feeling overwhelmed, don’t know where to start, or need hands-on help for your specific needs, book a private Organisation Workshop with one of our Personal Organisers or come along to a group Organisation Workshop to learn how to implement a system that will help you to get your paperwork organised once and for all. For a lot of customers, the cost of this session is tax deductable. Say goodbye to unnecessary anxiety surrounding this time of year and let us help you make beneficial lifestyle changes.

Tax Time: Filing

Tax Time filing

Set up a tax filing system to keep all your paperwork in one spot. This way you’ll save yourself money, time and stress searching for important documents and tax-related papers.

One of our Personal Organisers revealed the must-haves to create an effective tax filing system at home or at work.

Here’s how:

1. Create a tax folder

Create different sections for important paperwork. You’ll need a Lever Arch Folder, A4 Tabbed Dividers and Plastic Pockets.

Own a business? For businesses filing quarterly BAS statements, we recommend 4 identical folders, one for each quarter, so that you can continue filing paperwork for the current quarter and send off your completed folder to the bookkeeper/accountant.

2. Label dividers to suit your lifestyle

If you’re not sure where to start, sort paperwork into its relevant financial year, then by category and subcategories. Unless your circumstances change, it’s likely these categories will be very similar from one year to the next, so you can reuse these dividers the following year too.

Labels could include:

1. Salary/Income

• Pay slips
• PAYG statement
• Invoices (for small businesses etc.)
• Interest earned

2. Investments

• Property including all income & expenses
• Shares including dividend statements
• Term deposits etc.

3. Bank statements

• Use coloured pens to annotate any expenses claimed

4. Tax related expenses

• Accountant fees
• Costs associated with managing tax affairs

5. Private Health Insurance Statement

• Health related expenses (if these exceed the safety net)

6. Professional Memberships/Union Fees

• Subscriptions
• Meeting fees
• Conference expenses
• Journals

7. (Home) Office Expenses

• Rent
• Telephone
• Internet
• Electricity
• Computer-related
• Stationery
• Equipment purchases

8. Work-related vehicle expenses

• Purchase/Lease/Interest payments
• Registration
• Insurance
• Roadside
• Service/Repair
• Car washes
• Fuel
• Tolls
• Log book

9. Donations

These are just a guide – adjust yours to suit your unique lifestyle.

3. Sort paperwork as it arrives

Give yourself a head start and sort paperwork into this folder as you receive it. This way, when the new financial year arrives, you know exactly where everything is and you’ve avoided unnecessary double handling.

4. Keep a checklist

Keep a checklist at the front of your tax folder so you can readily identify what documents you have and what is still missing. You could also record the totals for each category on this list to make your appointment with your accountant simple and efficient.

5. Store completed Tax Returns

Store completed Tax Returns in an A3 Storage Box along with your Diary for that year. Only keep these for as long as required by law – usually five years for most individuals, for companies, you’ll need to gain advice on this. Once that time is up, securely shred and discard those documents. If you have a lot of paper work, you may prefer to use an individual A3 Storage Box for each year or an Archive Storage Box.
