Jun 05, 2014

Tax expert Adrian Raftery has released his latest edition of 101 ways to save money on your tax – legally to help you minimise your tax debt while maximising your return. Raftery is one of the youngest Australian accountants to advance to Fellowship with the Institute of Chartered Accountants, at the age of 33. He is a senior lecturer at Deakin University and appears in the media talking about all matters relating to tax and finance.

Individuals who own an investment property, have a family, work as an employee or run their own business will benefit from reading this book. Raftery also incorporates the latest changes to tax legislation as a result of the May federal budget, so you’ll be up to speed on the latest amendments.

Throughout the book, Raftery offers handy tips, tax facts, pitfalls, FAQs and proposed changes for different scenarios. The book is broken into nine parts, starting with you and your family, your employment, education, investment property, shares, superannuation and your business. Miscellaneous encompasses topics such as overseas income, lodging your tax return, problems paying your tax and amending returns.

Money has 10 copies to give away. See the June 2014 issue for more details.
