Know your deadlines

If you are completing your tax return yourself, you have until 31 October 2020 to file your 2019/20 tax return with the ATO.

But did you know, you can get an extension to that deadline?

If you complete your tax with a registered tax agent, like the accounting team at The Hopkins Group, you have until May 2021 to file the same return. This gives you that extra time to get everything together and work with an accountant to hopefully get the best result possible from your return.

All you need to do to get started is to contact one of our accountants to add your name to our tax agent’s list.
