Advice and tips for Australian Businesses

How will COVID affect your business in 2022 and into the future?

Many business owners have not been affected since 2020 when the first case was detected and Australia started going into lockdown.

Though on the end of the spectrum, I have lost some clients myself (not many) because COVID did contribute to a few businesses closing.

How will it affect your business in 2022?

I feel more business owners are optimistic when it comes to their own business this year. Over the last 2 years, many business owners have refocused, pivoted into other areas of their business.

Some have closed one part of their business and ventured into another area which has been of financial benefit.

If anything, business owners are becoming more creative.

What they thought wasn’t possible, is possible.

Many cafes that had a bustling business are now only doing takeaway and remaining doing takeaway. They felt with the wages of staff for waitressing, was better spent in keeping the remaining staff on for cooking and delivery.

How will your business go into the future?

Have you been able to sustain your business during the pandemic?

2022 the year ahead

2022…

Well it’s here.

Can you believe that the last 2 years has changed everyone’s lives?

Some has been positive changes and some have been negative changes.

I’ve seen many of my customers having to put more staff on, where others have had to let staff go.

Who would have predicted this would happen?

Who would have thought a pandemic could destroy or help a business?

No one saw this coming.

Who would have thought Australia would have border closures?

Who would have thought you couldn’t travel?

Who would have thought Real Estate would increase at such an incredible rate?

Who would have thought people would become homeless?

I have seen so much change over the last 2 years especially when it comes to Bookkeeping. With Job keeper, with grants, different changes to STP Phase 1 and STP 2 and everything else that the Government has imposed.

If you just need to have a chat about your business and where it is headed, please give me a call anytime on 0429 363 047.

Did you know the ATO can cancel your ABN?

If you are a business owner and you have an Active ABN and are behind in your Tax and / or BAS lodgements, call Maree and let her help you catch up, otherwise the ATO will think you are inactive and cancel your ABN.

…and believe me, the ATO does cancel ABN’s.

Do you really want that to happen to you, because you have got behind in your Tax and or BAS lodgements?

Did you know the ATO are currently undertaking a program reviewing all Australian Business Numbers (ABNs) to identify those that are potentially inactive and in need of cancellation?
The ATO may select an ABN for review and potential cancellation if:
• that ABN has not reported business activity in a tax return;
• there are no signs of business activity in other lodgements such as activity statements; or
• there are no signs of business activity from other third-party information which the ATO has access to.

Call me today to help you.
