There are key tax benefits that business owners need to access over the next few months. We are here to help business owners receive the maximum benefits they can.

Important – Review or update your enduring power of attorney (EPOA) and will now

If you have to self-quarantine or are admitted to hospital, if you don’t have an EPOA then no-one else can make important business or financial decisions on your behalf.

We strongly recommend that you have an up to date EPOA and Will, and that your family know where these are stored.

Contact your solicitor for further advice on this matter.

These are times when we need to stay calm and rely on reliable news sources and information from State and Australian Government websites. What you see on social media may be panicky and unreliable information – stay away from this!
