Yesterday I took the day off to organise my taxes. Apart from the long trip down to see the accountant (out in the wilds of suburbia), it was also worthy of a day off because of the time required to find all the little bits of paper involved. Having found them all, it slowly dawned on me that I’d made a massive mistake on the monthly ATO forms I’d been sending in (yeah that’s the kind of stuff you’re lumbered with when you have a business, even if it’s just a shelf-company for contracting through).
Fortunately my very jovial accountant just chuckled at my stuff-up and said he’d fix it all up for me. And I promised to fill them in correctly this year.
