What the ATO’s NALI announcement means
Chartered Accountants Australia and New Zealand superannuation leader Tony Negline takes a closer look at the ATO’s recent announcement on non-arm’s length income and what it means for practitioners and trustees.
Tony tells hosts Aaron Dunn and Jotham Lian how the ATO’s draft law companion ruling means that if an SMSF’s affairs are not structured correctly, then, even for a minor expenditure, all the income of the super fund — ordinary and statutory income — could face income tax at the highest marginal tax rate.
He also shares his concerns with the legislation underpinning NALI and what he is ideally hoping for ahead of the ATO’s finalised law companion ruling.
How the ATO’s approach has changed over the years
Former ATO assistant commissioner Colin Walker joins us in this episode of Accountants Daily Insider to provide a closer look at the inner workings of the Tax Office and how its “us versus them” approach has changed over the years.
Colin tells host Jotham Lian how he’s transitioned from 45 years in the public service into a new role at the Institute of Certified Bookkeepers and what he intends to achieve in his new position.
He also explores what the future of the profession will look like, talks about what he thinks of the accountant and bookkeeper relationship, and shares some advice for up-and-coming talents joining the profession today.
How accountants will shape 2021
In this special episode of Accountants Daily Insider, three industry heavyweights come together to discuss the current economic environment and explore how accountants will play a vital role in Australia’s recovery.
Institute of Public Accountants CEO Andrew Conway, Reckon Group CEO Sam Allert and Prospa co-founder Beau Bertoli all come together to share their perspectives on the end of JobKeeper, the high level of trust that businesses have in their accountants, and how accountants will continue to be relied on heavily over the next year.
The trio also look at how the pandemic has changed the way we look at digital readiness and speak about some of the biggest opportunities for accountants in 2021.
Single Touch Payroll Phase 2: What we know so far
The rollout of Single Touch Payroll seems like just yesterday, but we now have the second phase lurking on the horizon.
In this episode of Accountants Daily Insider, host Jotham Lian is joined by the Institute of Certified Bookkeepers executive director, Matthew Addison, to explore everything related to STP Phase 2 to help prepare practitioners and their clients for the 1 January 2022 deadline.
Matthew goes over why the change is happening, what advisers need to be doing now and key dates to remember.
He also discusses the upcoming end of STP concessions for micro-employers and closely held payees, and explores the government’s mandate for e-invoicing.
What’s ahead for the IPA in 2021?
On this week's episode of Accountants Daily Insider, we take a closer look at the Institute of Public Accountants and the Association of Accounting Technicians and their plans for members this year.
Host Maja Garaca Djurdjevic is joined by IPA chief executive Andrew Conway and All That Counts founder and director Lielette Calleja, who has recently joined the AAT as its chief accounting technician.
Andrew and Lielette talk about the packed agenda that both the IPA and AAT have ahead for their members this year. They also discuss their thoughts on the variety of lockdown approaches by the state and territory governments through the COVID-19 pandemic, what might be on the cards for the 2021-22 federal budget, as well as when the IPA will resume running in-person events.
Seizing opportunities post-pandemic
While many in the profession are looking at 2021 as a year of consolidation, others, like Andrew Van De Beek, are jumping straight in and seizing opportunities as they come.
In this episode of Accountants Daily Insider, host Jotham Lian is joined by Illumin8 founder Andrew Van De Beek to explore why and how he has grown his firm from a team of 10 to 17 in just a few short months.
Andrew also discusses his firm’s recent acquisition of a warehouse, and a new partnership with e-commerce co-working and warehousing provider CLIK Collective.
The pair also explore what constitutes a great team culture and what practice owners can do to make sure they are keeping their staff motivated and involved with the firm’s vision.
