  • Taxation – year end issues: There are a number of issues to consider prior to the end of financial year to either comply with tax law requirements or to engage in appropriate year end tax planning.
  • Superannuation – year end issues and ongoing changes: An update of recent superannuation changes and how they affect your business including important year end considerations.
  • Tools to manage interest rate and other financial risks – On 7 May 2013, the RBA moved the official cash rate to a record low. It is a timely reminder that organisations should focus on how they are managing interest rate exposures into the future.
  • The Aussie dollar – How long will the current paradigm last? There is a widespread consensus that the Australian dollar is over-valued. If this view is correct, this raises a number of interesting questions and implications for business.
  • Want better business outcomes? Have a look at your culture! An organisational culture is born and reinforced, but does it really drive the best outcomes?
  • Cloud computing and its role in accounting and management – The massive speed and lower cost at which data can be transferred means that what can be achieved via cloud computing is a millennium away from the old centralised model.
