How to Manage Tax Compliance Laws? Here are the Five Ways to Follow

Tax Compliance Laws
September 1, 2021

What is Tax Compliance? 

Tax compliance refers to taxpayers’ decision to comply with tax laws and regulations by paying tax timely and accurately.

Tax compliance involves being knowledgeable and observing the state, federal, international tax laws and requirements set forth by government officials and other taxing authorities. 

A basic example here is the annual April deadline for tax return filing. Individuals who don’t complete their tax return filing by this date are considered noncompliant. As a result, they risk leaving their tax return on the table and facing fines or penalties. 

On the other hand, businesses must align their accounting, reporting, and tax filing processes with a different set of laws, rules, and regulations. 

Types of Tax Compliance

External compliance – External compliance refers to following the rules, laws, standards and understanding the values set by the government authorities to avoid any negative impact or bad influence on the future of the organization. These laws help an organization build public relations, trust and bring transparency to the business. In addition, complying with all the laws & rules ensures any unnecessary duplication of efforts & resources. 

Internal compliance – Internal compliance refers to an internally designed set of rules and regulations which the owners, employees, traders, clients, and customers follow to keep up the quality of the products or services provided by the company. An organization will comply with external requirements only when working in line with the internal rules and regulations.

Here are the top 5 ways to manage tax compliance laws. 

  • Keep records updated, accurate and legible
  • Understand your obligations
  • Prepare for all mandatory reports, forms, and returns
  • Stay up-to-date with tax legislation 
  • Be in a good position

1. Keep records updated, accurate and legible

To create accurate financial statements, you need accurate records because tax compliance is required by law, and precision is important if you want to avoid penalties. Thorough record-keeping makes lodging your tax documents much simpler, and it also makes tracking your business’s progress easier. If you use cloud accounting software online, you can easily maintain your invoices, expenses, payments, and reports very easily. 

2. Understand your obligations

First, to meet tax requirements, you need to know the value of tax requirements and understand what they are. You can find most of this information online on any business page. Browsing a business portal gives you knowledge and information about so many new things, where you can prepare and lodge statements, view your accounts, and make payments. 

3. Get prepared with all short mandatory reports, forms, and returns

Each financial year, small business owners are required to lodge various reports and pay their income taxes. 

There are mainly two reports that all business owners need to fulfill and pay. 

  • Business activity statement. 
  • Income tax Return. 

The business activity statement reports on goods and services tax, taxes withheld from your employees’ pay, and installments paid towards your tax. In contrast, the income tax return reports your personal and business income and deductions. 

5. Stay up-to-date with tax legislation

Tax legislation can change from year to year. To ensure compliance, small business owners need to stay side by side with any changes and update their processes and reporting as required. For example, new GST protocols have recently been introduced, which call for GST to be added to low-value imported goods and digital products and services. 

What are the metrics to measure team performance?

6. Be in a good position

No one expects you to have all the answers regarding the ins and outs of tax compliance, so having a trusted resource you can turn to for guidance will make things that much simpler. If you’re new to small business taxes or simply looking for some help along the way, reach out to an expert for reassurance.
