JUNE 2017


Well here we are, the middle of the year. You know what that means? New Finanical Year of course!

Now is the best time to look over your business situation and attend to any tax planning before the new year comes around. If you haven't done anything about tax planning and but have been thinking you would like to, please give us a call today before you run out of time.


In April we welcomed a new staff member to our team, Daniel.

Daniel is currently studying Bachelor of Business majoring in Accounting through James Cook University, and plans on studying his CPA afterwards.

Daniel spent his childhood years living up and down Australia's beautiful east coat as well as Darwin and India. He enjoys spending weekends away down in Agnes Waters, and when he can't get that far south, loves heading out to the Yeppoon foreshore and Great Keppel Island. Saturday afternoon's are best spent catching up with friends and playing board games from his extensive collection.


Congratulations to Aliesha and her partner Joe on the birth of their second child, Jesse Elliot.


The $20,000 immediate write off for small business has been extended to 30 June 2018.

For assets that cost less than $20,000 and were purchased between 7:30pm on 12 May 2015 to 30 June 2018 can be used as a deduction whether the item is new or second hand, but the item must be used and/or installed by this date.

If you are unsure whether this is available for you or would like further information, please give us a call.


The Medicare Levy Low-Income thresholds for singles, families, seniors and pensioners will increase from the 2016-17 financial year.

The new thresholds are as follows:

Singles - $21,655
Families - $36,541 plus $3,356 for each dependent child or student
Single Seniors & Pensioners - $34,244
Family Seniors & Pensioners - $47,670 plus $3,356 for each dependent child or student

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.


Although we may have already put this in one of our previous newsletters, scams from people claiming to be from the Australian Taxation Office seem to be on the rise.

Recently we heard of a person receiving a call from someone claiming to be from the Australian Taxation Office advising there was an outstanding debt and if it wasn't paid within a certain time frame there would be a warrant for their arrest.

Even though the Australian Taxation Office may be hard to deal with sometimes they will never call and harass you. 

If you are ever unsure if a call you are receiving is legitimate, ask for the details to call them back and give us a call and we will be able to check this out for you.
