A lot of hard work goes into running any kind of business. The founders are tasked with overseeing almost all of the tasks in the beginning. Networking, sales,service, administration, accounting, and financial management – all single handedly! Owners do have many responsibilities. Tax compliance is important, but it needn’t be a burden if you take the right steps throughout the year.
So, what can you do to make sure you’re compliant?
Understand your obligations
First things first; to meet tax requirements, you need to know – and understand – what they are. You can find most of this information online on various government websites or contact VComply to know what applies to your business.
Keep timely, complete, and accurate records
To create accurate financial statements, you need accurate records. Tax compliance is required by law. Thus, precision is crucial if you want to avoid heavy penalties. Not only will thorough record-keeping make lodging your tax documents much simpler, it also makes tracking your business’s progress easier.
Prepare and lodge all mandatory returns, forms, and reports
Each financial year, small business owners are required to lodge various reports, and pay their business and income taxes. The income tax return reports your personal and business income, and deductions.
