Merry Christmas

DECEMBER 2011  SEASON’S GREETINGS & HAPPY HOLIDAYS to all of you, and thank you for your continued support throughout the year.

Our office will be closed from 22 December 2011 and re-open on the 09 January 2012.

The telephone will be checked regularly, so please if necessary leave a message and you will be contacted immediately. 

This month we include items on the “mini-budget”, the Tax Office and its “Garnishee” action.Again the Tax Office is creating mayhem, not only by the use of Profitability Benchmarks on Small Business, but now it intends to measure how we operate our Self Managed Super Funds, compare results between funds, and I presume start asking annoying questions of those trustees with Funds outside “the norm” whatever that may be.

The Carbon Tax – some tips on what to expect, and what to do.

As 2011 closes we thought it would be informative to read a view on 2012. Best to All George, John and Staff
