(b) Where due to an error on the part of either Ample Finance Group Pty Ltd, the ATO or myself, payment is made to me in excess of the correct amount due to me by the ATO, I will refund the difference within 7 days.

Scope of Service
1.Preparation and lodgement of the income tax return for the tax year which has been nominated in this form submission.
2.Provision of a PDF copy of the tax return prepared
Terms of Payment of Fees
Fees must be paid before your tax return is sent to you for review unless the Pay on Refund Method is selected.
Generally, an individual taxpayer must have written evidence to prove their claims if the total claims exceed $300.
The records must prove the total amount, not just the amount over $300. The $300 limit does not apply to claims for car expenses, meal allowance, award transport payments allowance, or travel allowance expenses. There are special written evidence rules for substantiating these types of expenses. Refer to the Australian Tax Office website http://www.ato.gov.au/ for further details.
Keeping your tax records
Generally, an individual taxpayer must keep your written evidence for five (5) years from the date you lodge your tax return. The Australian tax system relies on taxpayers self-assessing. This means that you are responsible for working out how much you can declare and claim on your tax return. You also need to be able to show how you arrived at these figures – in some cases you may be required to provide written evidence.
In order to prepare an accurate tax return and support the claims you make, you need to keep careful records. The records you need to keep depend on your personal circumstances. If you are not sure, it is better to keep too many records than not enough. Refer to the Australian Tax Office website http://www.ato.gov.au/ for further details.
