We are pleased to welcome a new staff member this week, Jennifer Lambell (pictured) who has relocated from Newcastle to Binnaway. Jennifer is a registered tax agent whose first experience handling money was in her parents’ cake shop as a child! She still loves serving clients and helping them achieve their financial goals and is excited to be joining the Peacocke’s team.
Our plans to undertake Xero training have been put on hold for the moment, but we plan to revisit this once the silly season has passed. Watch this space for an opportunity to learn more about the program we all know and love in the new financial year. If you need any help with day to day financial planning, please call us on 6885 5594.
Speaking of the silly season, we are now in tax planning mode and preparing for the end of year which is just around the corner. Now is the time to gather your essential tax time items and get organised for the end of year. Read our tax time checklist for more information.
