CommBank Small Business - Android Apps on Google Play

Great app, some work neededFirstly, this service is pretty awesome for small business. Being able to do everything through a smartphone is such a great tool.

Web-based programs — techies call this cloud computing — reside on remote servers that customers access via their browsers. They offer the convenience of working on a return from any Internet-connected computer and having that return stored on the software makers’ secure servers. After spending several days running my family’s tax information through Web and desktop offerings, I learned that I’m old-school.

Small Business Break: Get a Refund of Taxes Paid in Previous Years

Under the general rule, you can carry a net operating loss (NOL) back for two tax years and deduct it against taxable income in those years. Depending on the NOL’s size, you would then get a refund for some or all of the taxes paid for those earlier years. The new law allows you to do much better, because you can carry back a 2009 NOL for as many as five years (with a twist for that fifth year).
