June is Tax Planning Month

With 30th June fast approaching we all need to get our legal tax deductions in place prior to this date. Are your tax records up to date? Have you organized a meeting with your accountant to see what they suggest?

Some options for you may include:

  • Recent changes to superannuation contributions make this a very attractive offer and also helps you build wealth for tomorrow.  It is said for the younger generation, there will be no pension when they reach retirement.  Each individual will need to be self funded.  Aged based limits apply.
  • If you need to purchase a vehicle or some equipment, structured leases enable you to claim the deduction in this financial year.  (Read More)
  • Get those repairs and maintenance jobs done.

These tips have been given as general advice.  For what suits your situation best and what gives you the maximum deduction ensure you sit down with your accountant now. The 1st of July is too late.

fuel saving tips

Fuel Saving Tips

  • Fill up in the morning when the temperature is still cold, the cooler the ground the more dense the fuel, when it gets warmer petrol expands, so buying in the afternoon or in the evening.....your litre is not exactly a litre.
  • Try not to pump petrol too fast as this can cause evaporation leading to less worth for your money.
  • Don't let your fuel tank run too low as the more air occupying space the quicker the evaporating process becomes.
  • Try not to fill up if there is a fuel truck pumping into the storage tanks as this increases the chances of picking up the particles at the bottom.
  • There are quite a few websites available to search for the cheapest petrol in your suburb. Try going online before you buy.
