The end of the financial year is a busy time for both businesses and individuals. Not only are many hoping to score an EOFY bargain on a major purchase, everyone needs to get their paperwork in order for the taxman. All this as COVID outbreaks impact several states just to complicate activities. But there are other aspects at this time of year in regard to financial objectives which are worth consideration. We’re sharing our tips on what to keep an eye on over late June and into July that present opportunities for you and how we may be able to assist you to achieve your financial objectives over the coming year.
Tax Time, Looking Ahead
Yes, the priority is to get everything in order by 30 June but it’s also time to look ahead to the new financial year. What do you hope to achieve in regard to your financial situation and what actions should you be taking now to achieve those goals.
Many individuals are in line to receive a tax return courtesy of the Low and Middle Income Tax Offset. Others may receive a return due to claiming eligible work from home expenses incurred due to COVID-19 restrictions. What will you do with your refund?
If you have an existing personal loan on a car, boat, motorbike or caravan you may think about making additional payments on your loan. Secured Personal Loans allow for extra payments to be made. These can be in addition to the scheduled payments or can be used against future repayments but cannot be withdrawn. By making extra payments while adhering to the existing payment schedule, the loan would be finalised prior to the fixed loan term. This would incur break fees. For details on break fees, refer to our articles.
Your refund may present a handy deposit or down payment on that boat, car, caravan or motorbike you want. While Jade Finance can source no deposit car loans, by making a deposit and reducing the overall loan amount, you pay less interest than borrowing the entire amount.
For businesses, the new financial year is key to getting well-set up to take on the year ahead. While the past has been uncertain, businesses have a raft of measures available to realise tax benefits through equipment and motor vehicle acquisitions. Temporary full expensing is available to eligible businesses for eligible purchases. To take advantage of this measure a Chattel Mortgage finance contract is required. This is suited to businesses that utilise the cash accounting method. The method of accounting used by a business must be maintained through an entire financial year under ATO rulings.
So if a business uses the accruals method of accounting and would like to change to the cash method to be more suitable for Chattel Mortgage and temporary full expensing, now is the time to have that conversation - first with your accountant to make the change and then with Jade to source a cheap finance deal for your acquisition.
State Budget Opportunities
June-July is also State Budget time and for businesses, this can mean major announcements which may impact your business. Primarily impact positively with opportunities for new work through state infrastructure and capital works projects.
