Tax. It’s one of two certainties in life, but unlike death, it’s not something you need to fear! Our friends at the Newcastle branch of the Australian Tax Office are here to help make meeting your tax obligations easy with Tax Tuesday seminars at Three76 Hub.

In this lunchtime session you will learn about:

  • Why the Australian Business Register (ABR) and your Australian Business Number (ABN) matters
  • Understanding the difference is between contractor and employee
  • Managing Pay As You Go (PAYG) tax instalments and your cash flow

Grab a sandwich on us and learn to make tax work for you, not the other way around. Who said there's no such thing as a free lunch?
