  • Tax Time 2020 toolkit – small business

    Assistant Commissioner's foreword

    Welcome to the Small Business Tax Time toolkit for 2020!

    This past year has been unprecedented, with bushfires, drought and COVID-19 making things more difficult for many people in small businesses.

    We want to help businesses get back on their feet. Small businesses have always been the backbone of our economy. They make up more than 99% of all Australian businesses, contribute more than $413 billion to the economy and employ more than 5.5 million people. These challenging times mean a lot of people and businesses are finding things tough. This has been reflected in the interest around the government’s COVID-19 measures, such as JobKeeper and early access to your super.

    This toolkit includes a helpful directory of links to help small businesses find information, tools, calculators and services to help them at tax time and throughout the year, as well as several fact sheets for small businesses. We have included two new fact sheets this year.

    Tax professionals provide valuable knowledge and support to small businesses. We encourage you to share this information with your small business clients, stakeholders, members and networks, and hope you find it helpful.

    If you would like more materials or are interested in receiving tailored content to share across your communication channels, get in touch with us at smallbusinesscommunication@ato.gov.au.
