    I find the centre link website so hard to navigate. Can someone tell me: does everyone get FTB or is it means tested. If so what's the income limit?

    without a tax return they're unable to cross match and refund.

    There have been some great thoughts here. I have a budget, and am being extra strict on it atm in case I don't get a new job before the end of my redeployment period at work. I'm within my $150 a fortnight food budget despite doing a pantry stock and if I can keep this up the sups will be 100% unaccounted for So YAY. I can treat myself. I might even consider a secondhand ipad!

    I'll have to keep my eyes open this year and see how much I receive. That 100 bucks isn't enough for Centerlink to cut my pension, but the ATO STILL wants a piece of it
    Completely off topic and may not be relevant but...You can make money from a hobby without the ATO touching a piece of your pie.

    You cant claim deductions etc like a business but just wanted to make you aware if you didn't know already.

    The ATO website has further details under the 'am i a business' heading.

    Are you serious???? My accountant keeps telling me I have to do a tax return and pay tax on the money I "make", which is bugger all if you take the costs of the materials and the amount of time I spend on making these items
    I'm so not impressed. I will ring the ATO first thing Monday morning. I haven't even got an ABN or anything, let alone a registered business name

    I haven't been cut of whatsoever. I still get the full pension though

    Im glad i said something now yes, definitely call the ATO!!

    If you are only making about $100 a month and its a hobby of yours, i would consider it a hobby and not a business for tax purposes (im no accountant but i know plenty of them)

    As a PP also mentioned... Find a new accountant

    Yeah definitely looking for a new accountant now. I only went with this guy because he's my fathers business accountant and he was highly recommended. He charges $125,- do a basic tax return, so that's like 10% of what I "make" per year lol.
