Working holiday makers – 2017 early lodgers

The ATO has advised that the recent change to tax for working holiday makers means there are extra steps tax agents need to take when preparing an early 2017 income tax return for these clients.

We will obviously be able to help you with this.  Basically, we will need to provide the ATO with a schedule separately identifying income earned up to 31 December, and then from 1 January onwards, to ensure the correct tax rates are applied (along with any deductions associated with the income period).
