Contractor Newsletter | October 2018

Have you complete your 2018-19 tax return yet?

With 31 October 2018 just around the corner we wanted to take this opportunity to remind you to begin preparing your income tax return for last financial year.

While this deadline may not be relevant for everyone we do encourage you to lodge your returns as soon after the financial year as possible.

With CXC Financial Partners you can kick off the process easily and quickly by completing the online tax form here.

Once your form is submitted the team will draft your tax return. We’ll then have one of our Chartered Accountants get in touch to discuss how we can maximise your return before lodgement.

If you’d like further information or if we can help you in any way please contact the team at CXC Financial Partners at on 1300 925 081.
