Keep Your ABN Details Up To Date

"New Year, New You"?
If you've moved office location, changed your email address, or restructured your company for 2018, make sure your ABN details are up to date.

You always need to update your ABN details within 28 days if your business details change. This includes alterations to your postal address, business address, contact details and business structure.

Always make sure to notify your tax agent straight away whenever you make these kinds of changes!

Vacant Residential Land Tax

If you own a home that was left unoccupied for more than six months during 2017, you may be required to pay 'vacant residential land tax'.

Properties in certain council areas that were vacant for six months or more between 1 May 2017 and 31 December 2017 need to reported via the State Revenue Office online portal by 15 January 2018.

For more information, including the affected council areas, visit the State Revenue Office website (click "read more" for direct link). 



Goodbye Fax!

We decided it was finally time to get rid of our fax line.
Please be aware that you can no longer reach us by fax (previously 03 9851 7997). 

If we ever require you to send through documents, we will advise the best way for you to pass them on; either via post, email, cloud system or in person.


You can always reach us via email at
Send through any queries and we'll make sure the right person handles it for you. We will get back to you as soon as possible after the office reopens.

How to 'treat yourself' on a budget.

The hash tag #treatyourself is becoming pretty popular across social media. We're all about self love, but not the guilt that comes with it if the treat isn't necessarily something you can afford.
