The purpose of this blog post is to keep our valued clients up to date in this time of uncertainty as the impact of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) reaches throughout our communities.
We will be posting important information on all of the Commonwealth and State Government, Australian Taxation Office and Banking Industry stimulus and relief measures available. We intend for this to be a living document that we will update on a frequent basis as new information gets released.
This is where you will find it: Covid-19 Stimulus & Relief Updates
Below, we have tried to break down the measures into smaller categories to make it easier to digest. Of course where possible we have also tried to provide information about what you need to do to access a particular measure.
The governments stimulus measures are designed to achieve the following outcomes during this pandemic where possible:
Keep as many Australians employed in jobs.
Keep as many businesses alive so that there are jobs to return to.
Where they can't achieve the two above items they will try to provide individual income support through access to Centrelink benefits and superannuation as a last resort.
Thanks for your patience in allowing us to pull together this comprehensive list of resources.
Per our previous update, servicing you remains a priority, as well as the confidentiality of client information. You can be assured that anyone working remotely is doing so using secure log-in access and protocols.
We encourage you to contact one of the team to discuss how any of these measures may be applied to your individual circumstances. We are here to help you build a solid cash flow plan to survive the coming months and make the most of any financial stimulus or relief available to you.
We have also taken the time to provide you with a free COVID-19 Business Continuity Planning document to help you make smart decisions when developing your plan and cover aspects you may not have considered yet covering a range of different areas of your business.
We understand that these are challenging times for everyone. Remember that we are all in this together and we encourage to take care of yourself, you loved ones and your communities.
