    Assistant Commissioner's foreword

    Welcome to the Small Business Tax Time toolkit for 2021!

    While the Australian economy is starting to recover from and adjust to the impacts of COVID-19, we appreciate that it’s still a difficult time for many small business owners who continue to navigate the pandemic. We understand how hard small businesses have had to work to stay afloat and meet their tax and super obligations, and we want to support them so they can continue to do so. We also want to support those small businesses who need extra help to get back on track. We remain committed to working with small businesses through these challenging times.

    Small business is the backbone of our economy. They contribute more than $400 billion to the economy annually and provide more than six million jobs. A lot of people have found things tough, and this has been reflected in the interest around the government’s COVID-19 stimulus measures, such as JobKeeper, cash flow boost and early access to super.

    This toolkit includes a directory of links to useful information, tools, calculators and services to help small businesses at tax time and throughout the year. There are also fact sheets with tips to help them get their tax returns right.

    We know that many small businesses rely on and trust the advice of their tax professional. We encourage tax professionals to share this information with their small business clients, stakeholders, members and networks.
