Terms & Conditions Pay By The Month
Term of Membership
Your initial MTS membership period commences on the day you join and expires 12 months from the end of the calendar month in which you join. (For example, if you joined on 10 January 2020, your initial membership period would expire on 31 January 2021.) At the end of your initial 12 months, your membership then continues on a month-by-month basis.
Cancellation of Membership by an MTS Member
An MTS membership cannot be terminated within the first 12 months. Should you wish to cease your MTS membership after this time, you can do so by submitting your request in writing with a minimum of 30 days notice to the address provided, Direct Debit Manager P.O.Box 2255 , Southport.BC QLD 4215. or info@Mytaxsavers.com.au
Cancellation of Membership by MTS
MTS reserves the right to cancel your membership at any time for reasons including, but not limited to, failure to pay your membership fees; unlawful distribution of our intellectual property; or posting content to our Discussion Forum that is in violation of any applicable law or regulation (such as copyright, trademark or other intellectual property rights), is in violation of privacy rules or personal rights of others or is defamatory, obscene, threatening, abusive or hateful.
Your Direct Debit Authority, once completed and submitted, acts as a Tax Invoice in the amount of $528 GST-inclusive in respect to your initial 12 month membership. Following this initial 12 month period, if you have chosen to pay your membership by monthly direct debit, your ongoing membership of $44 GST-inclusive per month becomes that of a progressive supply. No further Tax Invoices will be issued as each progressive supply is for an amount less than the Tax Invoice threshold of $82.50.

Spam Act 2003
The Spam Act 2003 came into force on 10 April 2004 and imposes obligations on businesses for the responsible sending of electronic messages.
Broadly, the Spam Act says that unsolicited commercial electronic messages must not be sent. “Commercial” messages are ones that offer a commercial transaction or direct the recipient to a location where a commercial transaction can take place.
Messages should only be sent to an address when it is known that the person responsible for that address has consented to receive it.
There are two forms of consent set out in the Act:
- Express consent from the person you wish to contact; a direct indication that it is okay to send the message, or messages of that nature;
- Inferred consent based on a business or other relationship with the person, and their conduct.
What is the impact of the Spam Act 2003 on Mytaxsavers
Mytaxsavers is impacted by the Spam Act 2003 because:
- Staff members have, at their disposal, e-mail facilities which they can use to email the outside world;
- We produce e-mail newsletter called bi-Monthly Newsletter which we send to paying members;
- We produce, from time to time, special promotional material, which we send to the broader business community.
How are we complying with the Spam Act 2003?
Staff Emails Generally
We have provided written notice to all staff members that they are not permitted to originate or forward unsolicited electronic messages that have a commercial content. We have embodied this requirement into an email policy, which staff have agreed to.
Email Newsletters to Members
We hold express consent from our members by virtue of the fact that they have paid for a membership, which includes these communications.
Promotional Material for Members & Non-Members
Firstly, we hold express consent or inferred consent from all recipients on our mailing list. Some of our members have given us express consent to receive such communications as they have advised us verbally that they wish to receive such promotional material. Some of our members have given us inferred consent on the strength of their existing membership status with us and the fact that they have previously provided their email address to us as a result of that relationship.
Non-members that we communicate with will either be former members, prospective members that we have already had dialogue with, or members of the broader business community that have conspicuously published their email address and whom we feel might benefit from our range of products and services.
We recognise that non-members may not want electronic communications from us and therefore provide a mechanism for these communications to be stopped. Our email messages contain a footer whereby recipients can “Unsubscribe”. We undertake to remove the recipient from our address list within five working days of having received an unsubscribe request from them.
In all cases, our email messages contain clear and accurate identification of who we are and how we can be contacted.
