Are you a non-profit organisation? Did you know that some types of non-profit organisations are taxable while some are exempt from income tax? Know whether your organisation is required to lodge an income tax return or not.
Non-profit organisations are generally exempt from income tax and are not required to lodge an income tax return unless the tax office asks them to. If you are not exempt, you may be required to lodge an income tax return using the company tax return.
For income purposes, non-profit organisations that are subject to tax are treated as non-profit companies or other taxable companies. It is important to note that non-profit companies are given special income tax rates and special arrangements for lodging tax returns.
A non-profit company of an Australian resident with a taxable income of more than the $416 taxable threshold per year should lodge a company tax return. Other taxable companies, on the other hand, are fully taxed. They have to lodge an income tax return every year, no matter their taxable income.
To know whether your organisation has to lodge a company tax return or not, you should first find out whether you are a non-profit company or other taxable company. You should determine your threshold that’s subject to tax for lodgement and calculate your organisation’s taxable income.
