Mind the Gap is your pathway into the work-force and through the maze of the Australian tax system. Designed specifically for teenagers, this 11-unit online program simplifies and explains everything a young person needs to know about the boring stuff that causes all of us headaches. Mind the Gap follows Hayden’s story as he progresses through the financial year and fulfils his tax obligations.

Hayden’s not always interested in what his mentor, Tyler, has to say. But with few hiccups Tyler and Hayden manage to get somewhere.
