TAX BOMB: ARE YOU PREPARED?

WHEN economic commentator Peter Switzer described the 2011 Federal Budget as ‘all about nothing’, he must have had Australia’s small business capital – the Gold Coast – in mind.

Now it’s tax time and while the extent of the red herring initiatives will not be realised until 2013, it’s timely that Gold Coast Business News clarifies some key points.

Rather than mask the pain, in this issue we reel in the experts to forecast what the future holds and also seek some sound advice on how to better position your business for the FY ahead.
