Small Business webinars, presented by the Australian Tax Office
It may not be the most fun thing you’ll do with 45 minutes (by a VERY long shot), but these webinars are personal, comprehensive and completely free. They include an introduction to small business, a guide to tax deductions and working from home, tax concessions for small business, GST, record keeping and superannuation.
There are also some comprehensive videos to watch on the ATO website here.
