MARCH 2017

Welcome to our first newsletter for 2017!

Seems like not long ago we were wishing you a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year, but here we are getting ready for Easter.

We have had a busy start to 2017 and the next few months are only going to get busier with the final due date for the 2016 returns only just around the corner. So we can prepare your returns on time, drop off your information today!

In other news, Aliesha will be going on maternity leave in just a few short weeks to have her second child, while Angela Ross will also be going on maternity leave in June, also for her second child. Congratulations to both families!


Just a reminder for Self Managed Superannuation Funds to make sure your SuperStream Gateway Service registration is up to date.

The Australian Taxation Office has found a high number of Self Managed Superannuation Funds had either an incomplete or invalid ESA on their 2015 return making them SuperStream non-compliant.

Some programs automatically renew each year where others require you to manually renew this, so please check you are registered.


As you all may have heard there are some major superannuation changes coming into effect as of 1 July 2017.

We are holding a free information session on 6 April 2017 at 10:30am at our office for you to find out some further information in relation to these changes and whether they will effect you. Click here for the Superannuation Reform Information.

We will also be holding our Australia's Biggest Morning Tea in conjunction with the information session so come along and enjoy a cuppa.

If you would like to attend, please let us know by close of business Friday 31 March 2017.

Sole traders with simple tax affairs are now able to use the MyDeductions tool on the ATO App.

This tool allows you to record income, expenses and vehicle trips as soon as they occur so you don't miss a claim due to faded or lost receipts. 

It also makes it easier at tax time as you can email the file to your accountant rather then giving them all of your separate receipts.

If you do use this tool you need to remember to back up your device regularly as you don't want to lose any data if your device is broken, lost or stolen.
