New ATO tax and super resources for small business

The Australian Tax Office (ATO) has launched a new online learning platform to help small businesses enhance their knowledge of tax and superannuation.


The Essentials to strengthen your small business website includes more than 20 short courses and a calendar of key lodgement due dates to support small businesses.

It also contains videos, case studies, audio content and written information, as well as the option to test your knowledge with quick quizzes.

The portal has modules across a range of business stages spanning idea, start-up, day-to-day, change and exit.

Courses include starting a business, GST, using your business money and assets, hiring workers, recordkeeping, claiming tax deductions, superannuation obligations, and growing your business.

The new platform is also a useful resource for tax practitioners, especially for those that are small businesses themselves, to share and use with their staff and clients.

The ATO says it was co-created with small businesses and educational experts to deliver learning pathways that can be customised, depending on each stage of a business’s life cycle, structure and industry.

ATO Deputy Commissioner Will Day said: “Small business owners can now access short, free and flexible online courses to sharpen their knowledge of tax, super and the core aspects of effective small business management.”

“It also includes tips on areas where we see small business owners make mistakes, like goods and services tax (GST) and business deductions.”

Minister for Small Business Julie Collins said: “I encourage small businesses to take up this great opportunity from the Australian Taxation Office with free courses specifically designed for the needs of small business.”
