It has been a busy H2 here at Taxback.com.
Throughout early 2022, the number of working holiday makers traveling to Australia began to rise – following two years of COVID border closures.
And while it will take some time for the volume of backpackers in the country to return to pre-pandemic levels, it has been fantastic to see so many working holiday makers jetting down under once again.
On 1st July, the Australian tax filing season opened – with a tax filing deadline of 31st October.
Having worked in Oz, many backpackers will have a tax-filing requirement and the Taxback team were on hand to support them with this. And we are delighted to report that we enjoyed an 100% increase in Australian registrations year-on-year.
Changing focus to Ireland, no doubt you’ll have caught the wonderful Marian Ryan sharing her tax tips across Irish media outlets – including Virgin Media’s Ireland AM and Newstalk FM.
The team also successfully navigated a chock-a-block Budget 2023 period. Taxback branding could be seen on TheJournal.ie where we were lead sponsor for all of their Budget coverage. We were also active with an advertising campaign on the Irish Examiner website. Thankfully, our efforts were rewarded with our most successful Budget campaign ever – with huge numbers of new leads secured.
So what’s in store for 2023?
Well, Q1 is always an eventful time for Team Taxback! After all, tax seasons in a number of markets swing into action – Ireland, the UK and Canada to name a few.
The team is already buzzing with activity, gearing up for the busy season and planning various campaigns that will undoubtedly make the season a success.
