Accountant's Minute 254
If you haven’t already started, now is the time to be thinking about the services that your accountancy firm is going to offer to your clients and prospects in 2021.
We will all be glad to see the end of 2020, but many challenges still exist. There are thousands of businesses around Australia still on the JobKeeper program and many businesses are not performing at full capacity, primarily because of the problems experienced by the tourism industry, accommodation and restaurants and bars because of the various lockdowns that have been in place around Australia.
In the Business Advisory Services Update Webinar/Conversation on Wednesday 9th December at 11.00am AEDT (10.00am AEST) Peter Towers, Managing Director of ESS BIZTOOLS will have a discussion with Mark Holton, Director, Smithink Pty Ltd relative to issues confronting accountants as they prepare themselves for 2021. Some of these issues include:
In the Business Advisory Services Update Webinar/Conversation on Wednesday 2nd December 2020 “Alternative Funding for New Businesses – What’s the Trends?” Peter Towers and Priscilla Bea Smith, Director, Cloud Nine Associates, discussed the significant opportunity for accountancy firms to be able to brief their clients on the benefits that they can achieve by raising capital as a Crowd Sourced Funding Equity Raising Company, an Early Stage Investment Company or through a loan utilising the special loan funds made available by the Australian government for SMEs, which are 50% guaranteed by the Australian government, up to a limit of $1 million. The loan amount may be spent on any business related matter for the business.
Applications for these loans are via banks and financial institutions and close on 30th June 2021.
