Would you like to know about the tools and services the Australian Tax Office (ATO) offers to help and support your small business?

Council and the ATO have partnered to deliver a series of four free small business workshops held on the Surf Coast between February and May 2019. 

At each of the sessions you will learn more about aspects of:

  • planning for your regular financial commitments
  • tax basics
  • good record-keeping
  • employer essentials.

The ATO workshops are designed to help make managing your tax and super responsibilities easier, freeing up valuable time for you to spend on your business, not on your books. These workshops also show you how to use their online tools, services and resources.
