COVID-19: Our doors are open again

Open.pngWhat a tumultuous few days it's been! We're pleased and relieved to advise that with the lifting of the State Government's lockdown restrictions, we're back in the office and open for business.

Most of our team are on-site (socially-distanced) and our phone lines are back open.

While the current restriction levels are in place, we're going to continue minimising face-to-face meetings by deferring anything non-urgent or moving to your preferred method of video conferencing. However you are welcome to attend our office in person if necessary, especially for urgent matters and document signing. We have our COVID-safe plan in place but if you have any concerns, please feel free to call ahead and discuss with us first.

A reminder too that we can arrange for documents to be electronically signed, so please speak with your Dewings team member if this is an option you'd like to explore.

We hope that this recent disruption hasn't been too difficult for you and your business. We know it's a challenging time though, and we're here to help.

If you have any questions or would like to discuss your situation further, please contact us.

COVID-19: Office closed for 6 day lockdown

Following the current COVID-19 outbreak in Adelaide, and in response to State Government directives, we will be closing our offices for the next six days. Our team will be working from home and are still contactable.

Our phone lines will redirected so you'll still speak to our team when you call. They will be able to pass on a message and arrange for the appropriate person to call you back. Naturally though If you have the email address or mobile number of the person you are trying to contact, please feel free to use this instead.

We will not be conducting any face-to-face meetings during this time. We will however do our best to make sure that all of your Dewings team members are available through your preferred method of video conferencing.

If you have documents or other items to drop off to us, please hold on to them for now unless they are urgent. If there is anything that urgently needs signing, we'll arrange for it to be electronically signed and provide instructions on how to do this.

We're fortunate to live in a time when most things can be done remotely, so we don't expect there to be a huge disruption to our ability to serve our clients. But we recognise that these are uncertain times for you and your business and/or financial affairs. Please reach out to us if you need any help.

Finally, if you're in South Australia, we encourage you to stay home and stay safe for the next week. The better we do as instructed, the sooner this will be over and we can return again to (relatively) normal life. Good luck!

If you have any questions about these arrangements or need to organise a time to discuss your affairs further, please contact us.

Loss carry-back rules back in play

This year's Federal Budget included a return of the loss carry-back rules. In effect these provisions allow companies that have made a loss in the current year to use that loss to get a refund of tax paid on profits from earlier years. This could provide a handy cash flow injection for businesses struggling through the coronavirus pandemic, but there are some limitations.
