Keep Your Details Updated – Your friendly Empire reminder this tax season

Posted 14 Jun '23

In today’s fast-paced financial landscape, staying on top of your game is non-negotiable. Whether you’re an individual filing a tax return or a savvy business owner, updating your details is so important for good record keeping and compliance.

By staying in touch with your accountant and ensuring accurate information, you can guarantee a smooth relationship with the Australian Taxation Office (ATO) and other relevant authorities, setting yourself up for success when navigating your taxes.

Why Up-to-Date Information Matters

Keeping your accountant informed of any changes or updates is the key to synchronising all aspects of your financial matters. The inconvenience of dealing with inaccurate information can be burdensome, and we welcome a short email to say, “hey, my new contact details are” and we can take care of the rest.


Maintaining an effective partnership with your accountant is paramount when figuring out the complexities of the tax system. Consider the ABR, ASIC, and ATO as the integral components of a well-oiled machine, with your accountant at the helm.

By diligently providing them with the most up-to-date information, they can act on your behalf to notify these important government bodies (Australian Business Register (ABR), Australian Securities and Investments Commission (ASIC), and the Australian Tax Office (ATO)) of your contact details.

This proactive approach not only helps you avoid potential complications but also ensures the smooth functioning of your business, enabling you to operate like clockwork in the ever-evolving world of taxation. Keeping your accountant informed and sustaining accurate records will help you lay the foundation for a successful financial journey, allowing room for you to thrive while complying with regulatory authorities.

The Importance of an Updated Address

Maintaining an updated address is important when it comes to receiving critical mail from ASIC, ATO and other government organisations. If your address is incorrect in the system, pivotal documents may go astray, leaving you unaware of critical information.

As you can imagine, this can lead to serious consequences, such as missed deadlines, penalties, or even legal complications. Therefore, it is crucial to prioritise timely delivery of official notices by ensuring that your registered address is accurate and up to date.

PAYG Instalments: Don’t Miss Out

Let’s talk PAYG (Pay As You Go) instalments—a topic that shouldn’t be ignored. Missing these instalments can lead to unexpected tax debts and penalties. By promptly updating your details, you’ll receive all relevant PAYG instalment notices, allowing you to fulfil your tax obligations accurately and gracefully.
