SPECIAL BULLETIN: CORONAVIRUS (COVID – 19)

Important: An update on GAP Accountant’s response to COVID-19

In light of the recent developments around the Coronavirus (or COVID-19) and the uncertainty we are all facing day to day, we felt it was important to email you to assure you that we expect no major interruptions to the services that we provide.

OUR USE OF TECHNOLOGY MEANS THAT YOU CAN CONTACT US IF YOU NEED

While we don’t know if we will be working from our office or working from our homes in the coming weeks, we have invested heavily in the latest technology over the past years, and this means we can keep assisting you no matter what may happen.

All members of our team are able to work remotely and have access to all the technology systems and tools used daily to assist our clients.

Please keep emailing or phoning GAP Accountants when you need us, and we will be here to help you.

GOOD ADVICE IS NEEDED NOW MORE THAN EVER

If you have any general queries or requests for documents, please feel free to contact us.

The Australian Government has just released their $17.6 billion economic stimulus package in response to the Coronavirus. It is designed to help employers to keep their workforce levels. There are key tax benefits that business owners need to access over the next few months. Our accountants are here to help business owners receive the maximum benefits they can.

For any questions you may have about accounting, tax or business matters, please feel free to contact our office.

IMPORTANT – GET YOUR ENDURING POWER OF ATTORNEY (EPOA) AND WILL UPDATED 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.

If you require any assistance with this we can refer you on to several solicitors in this space.

NEXT STEPS

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 – we suggest you refrain from reading this.

Our team at GAP are here to help you. Please contact our office if you need any assistance.
