The continuing and compounding effects of the current drought mean NSW had its driest start to a year since 1982. The NSW Government has assessed the conditions and announced the Emergency Drought Relief Package to ease financial pressure on farmers and support the communities affected.

The arrival of a new year is often seen as a good time for change. After some time to stop and reflect over the Christmas break, if you have new years resolutions for your business we'd love to hear from you and assist in making them a reality. Book a free 30 minute consultation with your accountant before 31 January and kick-start your new year.

Christmas is the busiest time for the year. With customers scrambling to buy presents and hosts rushing last-minute preparations, it can be tough on businesses to get every order done on-time.
A well-prepared business, though, can turn these pressures into profits. We’ve put together a list of tips, some trendy and some timeless, to prepare your business for the holiday rush and seize the season’s opportunities.

A sure sign that the holidays are on the way is when Christmas songs begin to fill the air. In addition to traditional Christmas carols and holiday pop hits, it’s quite common to hear another sort of tune: the seasonally festive ad jingle.
Sometimes cute, sometimes campy, always a bit hard to shake from your head, ad jingles are a proven way to grab at customers’ hotly contested attention spans—but they’re not the only way.

The Christmas season brings a lot of opportunities for businesses but also requires a fair bit of spending. There’s inventory to stock, events to prepare for, and corporate gifts to send out. Depending on the volume of demand, you might be covering for overtime or temp workers. Just as in our personal lives, with gifts to give and parties to plan, expenses can quickly get out of hand.

For businesses that handle multiple projects simultaneously, as we discussed in an earlier blog using project management software can work wonders. But with a vast number of software applications to choose from, it can be challenging to pick which one is best for the business. The hefty price tags of some software options don’t help, either.
This is why we gathered today’s best project management software — specifically, the ones that are free to use — and narrowed them down to 9 options to make it easier for businesses to pick the one that suits them best!
