Transcript of a speech made by Alison Lendon, the Deputy Commissioner of Superannuation to the 2013 SPAA SMSF National Conference, on 15 February 2013 in Melbourne.
Tax help and support is in place to help people affected by the recent Queensland and New South Wales floods.
Reader question: My wife and I are interested in buying an investment property. My wife makes $30k a year and I make $65k year. Is it better to buy the property just on my name for tax purposes or do it together with my wife?
The Australian Taxation Office (ATO) have issued a warning of a new phishing scam: 'Tax Agent Report - Delayed Tax Returns' email which contains malware. Do not open this email as it is not from the ATO.
Reader question: I have recently purchased my first home a few months ago and will be buying my second next month, over the coming years I’m sure there are going to be many more so my first question is how do I find a GREAT property accountant, I want to get it right the first time as I want to stick with one accountant throughout my journey so they have a great understanding of my situation, I live close to Sydney and money is not an issue as I believe the more you spend the more you save when it comes to taxation and accounting advice.
