Tax File Number Security Reminder:
Do you send financial information to your bank, financial planner, or lawyer?
If you do, please make sure you've removed your tax file number (unless it's requested explicitly).
You run the risk of your personal information being intercepted by hackers and scammers if you are emailing or posting personal information such as a TFN.
Land Tax 2018:
Land tax assessments for 2018 will be released soon.
If you own property in Victoria, paying land tax depends on many factors, including the land you own, what it is used for, and its total value.
Key things to know:
1. If the total value of all taxable land you own is $250,000 or more, then you will incur land tax.
2. Taxable land doesn't include exempt land, such as your principal place of residence.
3. Absentee owners are required to pay a surcharge
We highly recommend giving the following video a watch if you're not sure about how Land Tax works in Victoria.

Get in touch with us if you have any further questions about how land tax will apply to you.
Flexible Long Service Leave
The Long Service Leave Bill 2017 was introduced late last year and if passed, it will change Victoria’s long service leave scheme in quite a few ways. Business owners should be prepared for potential upcoming changes, and employees should also familiarise themselves with the Bill, so they know how and when they can use their LSL.
