APL Accounting News June 2019


Need to call us?

We would like to make it as easy as possible for you to get hold of us, without waiting to be put through to somebody or leaving messages to be called back. As you can imagine, it gets very difficult to make contact once you go into consultations or operating theatre. You can book us directly on the same day at a time you know that you will be available and so will we. So we are saying ‘no’ to the inefficiency of phone tag and ‘yes’ to direct bookings for phone calls where we will call you at your chosen time.

This way we are completely focused on you and your call.

For clients that need to speak directly to Anne or Paolo then just book a 10 minute call on our calendly link, that way we don’t play phone tag.

APL Web Masterclass

Our final web masterclass for the 2019 Financial year is on 19 June. Here we will have Chris Harris discuss some common queries client ask us regarding paying their team and making sure they are within the rules of FairWork. They will also be answering any of your questions so make sure you sign up here https://zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_Ub1k6ewyRH2-Ri65u05wwQ


Improving Vaccinations – how are you doing?

Just a reminder that May and June are vaccination focus months for us. For every vaccination you do we will be donating through B1G1 for dogs in Nepal to be vaccinated against rabies, so get your vaccination numbers up! Check for those patients that have lapsed, make sure reminder systems are working and check the histories of every patient you see for current vaccination status. Most importantly remind your team!


End of year payment summaries

You will need to issue end of year payment summaries to all of your employees before 14 July 2019.  If you are on Single Touch Payroll you will not have to issue payment summaries as such, however you will still need to close off your payroll and file electronically with the ATO.

If you use Xero, see https://central.xero.com/s/article/Finalise-Single-Touch-Payroll-data for instructions on how to finalise the payroll for end of year.

Employees will need a MyGov account to access their payroll information if their employer is using Single Touch Payroll.

Superannuation contribution reminder

Final call for any salary sacrificed super top ups! Remember the cap this year is $25,000 including super guarantee so check with your superfund what they have recorded as your current contributions for 2019. This top up needs to be done no later than 20 June to ensure the money makes it into the fund on time. Also remember to get your staff superannuation paid around 20 June for it to be a deduction in the current financial year.

Dog Tales!

I am very proud to be able to run my courses and get over all the hurdles I face! It didn’t happen without consistent training, repetition and some failures. Does your business also face some hurdles where a bit of training and repetition could help? If so, check out https://vetbusinessuniversity.com/ Here you’ll find my persistent trainer, along with other determined trainers, have put together some really useful educational material to help train you and your team to get over your business hurdles. If they can train me, a naughty sausage, to run clear rounds on an agility course imagine what they can do for smart veterinarians like you!
