- Signed Declaration in the Approved Form;

Amendment Procedure and Dispute Resolution
You are entitled to –

• Seek to Amend an Assessment
If you disagree with an assessment, amended assessment, determination, notices or decision issued by the ATO Commissioner, City Tax Accountants will Lodge an Objection pursuant to Act on your behalf.
Identify your Tax Options
Assessment of payable income tax fluctuates significantly for business or personal entities. Tax breaks, deductibles and offsets are often reliant on factors like source and type of total reported income, age, marital status, residency status, property ownership. We collect this information, calculate the tax rates exclusive to you, and prepare the tax return documents specific to you.
Despite their best intentions, we realize that people may not be able to meet their lodgment obligations at times. Numerous factors like academic commitments, family commitments, financial inability, scheduling conflicts, and/or extenuating events (medical emergency or natural disaster) may influence such decisions. We recognize them, respect your personal circumstances, and aspire to eliminate any FTL (failure to lodge) penalties you may incur.
For each isolated case of late lodgment, we explain the applicable laws, what you can expect, details of penalties, and supervise your tax filing process. If you have any additional questions or concerns, you can always reach us.
We provide you a step-by-step walk through of this process to ensure you’ve clearly understood everything.
Once you’re ready, we will explain the elements which calculate your assessable income, your personalized tax rate obligations, and the quantum(amount) of your Income as per ATO regulations.
Your Income Rate is basically a formula – Income Tax = (Taxable Income X Rate) – Tax Off-Sets.
Our tax agents North Sydney pride themselves on their professional excellence in efficient handling of late lodgments
Preparing your tax returns relies largely on accurate estimation of deductions available to you. Deductions can be broadly classified into:
- General Deductions – standard deductibles you incur from your income generation, as allowed by tax law provisions of Australia
- Specific deductions – ancillary deductions which are specific to your occupation, location of work, operational expenses and financing for your business (both as franchise owners and primary producers) e.g. bad debts, financial loans, maintenance costs, mortgage interests, equipment costs, capital assets depreciation, factory and production costs, transportation and freight investment costs etc.
Itemized deductions and government credits are available for charitable contributions, dependent care, leasing costs for resources, financing assets, hiring purchase arrangements, small business health care, and use of renewable energy vehicles.

Allowable Work Deductions
Expenses incurred in running a business, either as a corporate entity or as a sole trader are classified as Allowable work deductions. Please be advised, that any private, domestic, or personal use of shared assets are exempt from deduction benefits. Some of the deductions you may claim are:
- Safety gears and Protective uniform – Purchase costs for safety gears and protective uniforms for professions with potential health hazards (exposure to harmful chemical, biological infection, radiation), physical demands (construction sites), are all eligible for deduction claims. Protective eye wear, bunny suits, safety helmet, industrial boots, and gloves are some examples of permissible deductions.
- Motor Vehicle Expenses – Cost of maintenance, fuel, reparation, and allied investments on motor vehicles used for small business transportation, client meetings away from conventional workplace, visiting customers, or professional education can be used towards deductible credits. Heavy vehicles used for freight transportations and cargo shipment like tractors, trailers, and cranes are not eligible.
- Traveling allowance – Legal allowances are made for exceptional scenarios like: business related commute to a different workplace, work from home, travel to client location in same tax zone, cost of heavy equipment carriage – either for security concerns, or for in-situ client occupation.
Expenses towards taking classes, purchasing educational material (software, paid tutorials), attending seminars or conferences, and any other self-education and training augmenting vocational skills or earning potential may qualify as deductions. Any travel (to classrooms, training centers) or investment towards third-party services used to procure the above may also be allocated towards these deductions.
Home office expenses
Part of your residence, when used towards business operations, can be used for home office expenses. These are applicable to all kinds of homes, including benefits for renters, owners, or partial allocations. ATO arbitrates two accordant options:
- Running Costs – All maintenance and reparation costs incurred for daily operations like gas, water, electricity, cleaning services, furnishing costs, depreciation on professional equipment etc. are deductible. Furthermore, professional communication requirements like high-speed internet, telephony unit, and any other device and gadget costs are broadly accepted as running costs. The comprehensive list of viable deductions is determined on a case-by-case basis.
- Occupancy expense – all ownership and residency costs including rent, mortgage interest, property taxes, home-owner’s association fees, and other ancillary expenses on home-office locations are included.
