Depending on your circumstances, prior lodgement history, and the size of your business, there is a range of dates when your business tax return could be due.
As you can see, there is no one catch-all for business tax return due dates. It’s worthwhile checking with your tax agent as to your individual requirements.
The cost for a business tax return to be prepared ranges depending on the scope and size of your business. There are different tax applications that need to be considered when completing a business tax return, as well as a series of schedules of additional information that the ATO requires to be submitted each year.
Completing a business tax return involves a lot of complexity, and the price will vary as your complexity increases. However, a business tax return can start from $1200 for the most basic of entities.
As a minimum, a standard small to medium-size business tax return is likely to cost at least $4K plus GST to prepare. This enables your tax agent to give consideration to all tax aspects of your business, and help you make your return as tax-effective as possible.
