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.
