For income tax purposes year of income means a calendar year of twelve months period (meaning the period starting from 1st January to 31st December). However an entity may apply in writing to the Commissioner for approval to change the entity’s year of income from calendar year or twelve month period to another twelve month-period previously approved. Year of income is important for tax accounting purposes.
