CrewCare Unscramble the Tax Omelette


Relief for Late Tax Lodgements 

A major stress point in the life of casual and itinerant workers backstage and onstage is the need to lodge a tax return. The levels of non-compliance across the entertainment industry are so high that the Australian Tax Office will inevitably stage a crackdown, as they do across many industries.

It's a pressure that builds slowly on crew and performers, often amplified by concerned family and partners who want the best, but don't see much in the way of financial security in what is a very difficult vocation. The tax office have been known to penalise late submissions, but usually are lenient when the tax payer 'makes good' before being tapped on the shoulder.

We've heard of many payment arrangements successfully negotiated, often simply using an automated phone system that doesn't involve speaking to a person. To get to that stage, a tax payer needs their returns sorted out and lodged.
CrewCare have negotiated a special deal with a national accountancy practice.

MGI Australasia is part of an international network of independent audit, tax and accounting firms with the expertise to get you back on track with your tax returns. As part of an ongoing commitment with CrewCare, MGI now offers a free consultation and 25% discount to all CrewCare members on presentation of you CrewCare Membership Card.

CrewCare wishes to acknowledge and thank Steve Greene and MGI South Qld for making this possible.
