End of Financial Year
Boost your tax return!
The end of June is nearing and you know what that means—it’s tax time! Apart from major public holidays such as New Years, the 30th of June is one of the biggest days of the year here in Australia. Also known as the End of Financial Year (EOFY), on this day tax returns are due. However, did you know that there are other methods you can do with your hard-earned money, apart from submitting your tax returns? Reports suggest that there is no better way to make use of the EOFY than by contributing with last minute donations to the charity of your choice.
Of course, non-profit charities such as Good Neighbors Australia are not exempt. We are registered under the ACNC Charity Register, the official registry of all charities and non-profit organisations recognised by the Australian Federal Government. In addition, we are also a deductible gift recipient (DGR), meaning that donations above $2 at Good Neighbors Australia are able to claim tax deductions. For more details, visit the Australia Tax Office webpage.
So what are you waiting for, make the most of the EOFY by making a last-minute donation! If you are planning to, or have already donated to Good Neighbors Australia within the past financial year, read on to find out how you can claim your tax deductible donations.
Step 1: Have your donation receipt ready. We will have sent you a donation invoice after you made your donation.
Step 2: Ensure that the amount you donated is eligible for tax deductions. Usually the minimum base is $2.
Step 3: Lodge your individual tax returns and claim your deductions! Remember to record your donations in section D9.
