Lodging company tax returns offline in Australia requires a few steps to be completed. First, download the PDF format of the tax return document or order a paper copy from the ATO Publication Ordering.

Before you begin filling in the document, it is recommended to read the instructions contained on the Australian Taxation Office website. These instructions will not only provide you with information regarding how to complete the tax return but will also provide you with the following:

  • Information regarding the schedules that should be attached to the document related to the type of company.
  • The type of bookkeeping and record keeping documents that need to be supplied.
  • Any other information that may be pertinent to the completion of the document.

Once the document has been completed in full and all additional paperwork and records have been attached, it should be submitted in it’s entirety to the Australian Taxation Office in a city nearest to your location.

The forms will then be processed. If any of the required documents are absent or if there are any fields that have not been completed, the Taxation Office will contact you. You may be required to start the process from scratch or simply supply the necessary information for processing to continue.

It is recommended to stay in touch with the Taxation office after lodging company tax returns in order to stay updated with the progress as well as find out if additional information may be required. This will help avoid delays in the process.

However, if you are struggling with completing the tax return or submitting the necessary documentation it is advisable to contact a professional accounting and tax lodging service provider for assistance. It is essential to submit information that is correct and up to date for the current financial year.
