From Andrew Harris principal of Minerds Bell Consultancy Group
Hi and welcome to my April bulletin. I’m afraid there’s no video this month but I’ll be back in early May.
I hope you had a wonderful Easter break. We headed up the river with a group of friends and thoroughly enjoyed the beautiful weather and great company. I hope you weren’t too badly affected if you had to change your plans because of this weeks’ new interstate Covid rules.
We have well and truly settled into 2021. It’s great to see so many clients in the office for review appointments. The team is busy preparing and implementing advice as well as handling the day to day enquiries and activities needed to support you.
Upcoming changes to super – still not passed into law
The proposed changes that I mentioned in my last bulletin still haven’t been passed by Parliament. We will let you know when they are, although this may not be until after the Federal Budget.
While the pandemic has had a negative effect on the economy, it hasn’t all been bad news from an environmental point of view. Aaron Bunch from AAP looks at some silver linings.
The economy has continued its recovery, with Colin Brinsden reporting that payrolls are slightly higher than they were at this time last year. Having said this, the effect of the loss of the Job Keeper allowance will play out over the next few months.
Finally, last Tuesday we wished Natalie Bordun a very happy 50th birthday. Many happy returns Nat.
That’s all for now.
