In this issue....

We welcome you to Issue 3 of the Tribe Group News for 2020!  Happy End of Financial Year!

Whilst Covid19 restrictions are lifting, and life is looking somewhat closer to the familiar, there is still some uncertainty in the markets.  We look at what is "giving the market the jitters and will it last", as well as providing some information on the "Cash Flow Boosts" available to eligible employers, the extension of the Instant Asset Write off, and how we need to report Services Australia payments in the 2019 - 2020 returns. The Stellar team also provides some insight into The Economic Stimulus package, and the concessions for the LRBA in SMSFs.

Teresa & the personal tax return team also ask that you send in your personal income tax return information as soon as you can.  We are ready and waiting to get an early start on these, and will be emailing all relevant clients in the coming days with our reminder of the "information required".

If you require any assistance, with any of the matters covered in this issue, or just in relation to your accounting or financial matters in general, please feel free to contact our office.  We are here to help!

Meet Our Tribe

Its time to meet our Tribe!. Each newsletter we will introduce one of the members of our team!  This month meet Brooke Hepburn-Rogers - Director Stellar Super.

Q1 – When you were little, what did you want to do when you “grew up”

A –
A Police Officer – In fact I took a one year hiatus from accounting in 2014, before I came here and got into the Tasmanian Police Academy. Family matters meant my return to SMSF Accounting, and me coming to Canberra in 2015 (which has worked out well – goes to show you don’t know what life has in store for you 😊 ).
Q2 – Who would you most like to swap places with for a day?

A –
My little brother, he is a PGA golfer, based in Singapore, and gets to work outside with sport. That or the family dog, that lives the life of spoilt luxury…..
Q3 – If you could visit anywhere in the world, where would you go?

 A -   
I have been lucky enough to visit a lot of places, but still have large bucket list. My next travels are Prague and back to Indonesia, but would LOVE to see Madagascar and Sri Lanka.
Q4 – What is your favourite family tradition?

A –
When my brothers, myself and my parents get together, which isn’t too often, we sit on the back deck overlooking the Northern NSW hinterlands and cattle and have a cigar and drink Dad’s homemade martinis. Gets rowdy 😊
Q5 – Who inspires you?

A –
There are so many, I would have to say my parents and brothers. Both my brothers have taken huge leaps of faith in their careers and moving countries and I am just so proud of them, they also happen to be the kindest and funniest people I know. My parents have lived a life of awe. Through hardships, and success, they have kept us a close unit. They have just celebrated their 50th Wedding Anniversary (and happily too!).
