New Financial Year


Hello and welcome to the New Financial Year.

John and I wish you all a prosperous, imaginative and successful period.

Attached we have gathered for you an array of articles ranging from Rental Property Expenses to the need for Self Managed Super Fund Trustees to be ULTRA careful in administering their Funds.

For those of you who are already preparing data for your Taxation Returns, (and for those who have yet to get the urge), please refer to the guides on our Website to assist you in your preparation.

Thanking you for last year, we look forward to working and being of service to you in 2010.



George Psiakis & John Clarke.
