Welcome to 2018!

We hope that this year is filled with happiness and success.

We kick off our first newsletter for 2018 with some handy tips for staying in control of your direct debit arrangements. Our article on freebies is a must-read if you are a small business owner.

Thinking about starting a business, but don't know which business structure is best for your situation? We have included a video from the ATO that explains the business structures available to you. We also take a look at the GST implications of selling different types of foods.

We finish off with an entertaining insight into multitasking.
