Where has the year gone? It seems to have just flown right by.

As the festive season is rapidly approaching we would like to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a Happy and Safe New Year.

Although this year has been full of excitement, with Karlie giving birth to her third child Lani in September 2016, Aliesha due with her second child in April 2017 and the addition of Dakota and Angela to our team we are looking forward to what next year will bring. 

Just a reminder our office will close for the Christmas and New Year period from 5pm Friday 16th December 2016 and will re-open at 8:30am on Monday 9th of January 2017.


As of 1 January 2017 the pension asset test changes come into effect. For retirees it is important to understand this may affect your payments and entitlements. For more information go to


As the season for work Christmas Parties has begun you should remember these expenses are not always deductible and there could be a possible Fringe Benefits Tax implication. You can find more information at Fact-sheets/FBT-and-Christmas-parties/ or give us a call.


Being paid in cash doesn't necessarily mean your employer is doing the wrong thing – but it does mean you need to do some extra checks to protect your entitlements.

Get a payslip for each payment to ensure your employer is paying your super and taking out the right amount of tax. Learn more about the cash economy and how to protect yourself at
