DO YOU HAVE A CHILD IN YEAR 4, 5 OR 6?

The 'First Child Tax Offset', introduced in 2001 by the Australian Government, compensated parents for the reduction in their income following the arrival of a baby born between 1 July 2001 and 30 June 2004. We would like you help in spreading the word about a parent entitlement that many Australians have missed out on.   The Australian Tax Office has now placed a deadline on claiming this offset June 2014. All email enquiries to Twelve Chartered Accountants, must be made before 2 May 2014

The Australian Government announced in the 2012 Budget that the ETR will be replaced by the Schoolkids Bonus. Starting from 1 January 2013, this new payment will help families with children at school to pay for expenses such as uniforms, books, school excursions, stationery and other costs like music lessons and sports registration fees.

The difference with this payment is that you will receive two payments per year January and July 2013.  You will no longer need to collect your receipts and claim it when you complete your tax.  It will happen automatically.
