In Australia, the financial year runs 1 July – 30 June. That means tax return time is coming up (while you can submit your return from 1 July, you have until the end of October to get them in).
I’m trying to be organised and get our paperwork sorted and submitted sooner rather than later. The problem is, my desk is now buried under receipts. I have no choice but to get it all sorted so I can use my desk for anything besides tax paperwork!
I always start off the financial year keeping everything sorted. Trouble is, by about March things have usually gone pear shaped and the best intentions out the window.
I guess I know what I’ll be doing this weekend.
Do you stay on top of your tax paperwork all year, or is it a mad scramble to get it done?
