  • Tax Time Toolkit 2019 – Small business

    Assistant Commissioner's foreword

    Welcome to the Small Business Tax Time Toolkit for 2019!

    Small businesses are the backbone of our economy. They employ more than 5.5 million people, contribute $380 billion to the economy and make up more than 99% of all Australian businesses.

    We are committed to making it easy for small businesses to meet their tax and super obligations so they can focus on making their business thrive.

    This toolkit has practical information to help small business owners and operators at tax time and throughout the year – whether they use a registered tax agent or lodge their own tax return.

    This toolkit contains messages about tax time which are ready to use, including:

    • a directory of links to information, tools, calculators and services to support small business
    • a range of fact sheets
    • an introduction to Single Touch Payroll (STP) for small employers.

    We encourage you to share this information with your small business clients, stakeholders, members and networks.

    If you would also like more materials, or you’re interested in receiving tailored content to share across your communication channels, you can email

    Andrew Watson, Assistant Commissioner, Australian Taxation Office
