Please note under ATO guidelines we cannot prepare any returns until the 14th of July because payment summary information cannot be guaranteed to be available. The office will be open as normal during this period. There may be the opportunity for limited appointments in the week of the 10th if urgent and prefill information is available.
Please note, Shane will be away the week of the 14th of August helping his son transition to US College. Nicole will be away the week of the 17th of July for a family wedding interstate. This will limit the number of available appointments in the first few months.
Thankfully as in the past, Shane’s diary is filling fast, and we are currently taking appointments into late August/Early September. Please do not hesitate to book in with Jonah and Anthony if you are wanting an earlier appointment.
