We also consider
the issue of passive income and where this figures when qualifying for JobKeeper. There has also been a temporary change made to bankruptcy laws because of the economic fall-out of COVID-19.
Also, as tax time does not simply disappear because of a certain virus, we offer some end-of-financial-year last minute tax tips, a warning on issues stemming from property development undertaken by SMSFs, and how resident or non-resident status affects tax outcomes. Please contact us for clarification, or further advice, regarding any of the topics covered in this newsletter.
