April Newsletter 2024

Middle Autumn!

As we start to leave Summer behind we really notice how quickly the days get darker earlier.

Whilst there has been some rain, not nearly enough for the farmers and gardeners, it appears that the rest of the State of Victoria is getting more than their fair share!.

With Easter now gone and already half way through the second month of the quarter of 2024 already, we are really steam rolling towards the 30th June and the end of the financial year.

Last Friday our Team had our quarterly review where we examine what we accomplished, areas for improvement and the plans and goals for the next quarter. We all set our individual 90-day Action Plans and shared them for greater accountability.

Do you need some help with planning out the year ahead? Or need some accountability or motivation to be more successful in 2024?

If so, reach out to our Team and we will show you how our business coaching program – Chasers Getting ResultsTM – works.

On Friday 19th April, Ange and I head to the Philippines for our International Conference in Cebu. We have been looking forward to this as we will be able to catch up with our International Team Members, Angie and Rocel. The weather is very hot so it will be good to escape the colder weather here for the next 9 days.

Starting the Dream – How to Avoid a Nightmare When You Start a Business – is scheduled to be officially launched later this month 2024 – more details to come…

TAX PLANNING ADVICE – Business Customers

By forecasting your expected 2024 income and tax payable for all individuals and entities in your family group, we can then develop strategies to “spread” your income across your family group in the most tax-effective way – and legally reduce your tax.

One of these strategies may be deferring income into the 2025 year so that you can take advantage of the updated Stage 3 Tax Cuts!

We will be contacting you after the 31st of March 2024 (once your March 2024 BAS is completed) to book your 2024 Tax Planning meeting.
