UPDATE TO COVID-19

AN UPDATE ON THOMAS HOPPER AND PARTNERS RESPONSE TO COVID-19

In light of the recent developments around the Coronavirus (or COVID-19) and the uncertainty that we are all facing day to day, we felt it important for the wellbeing of our staff members to work from home. We assure you that we expect no major interruptions to the services that we provide to you.

GOOD ADVICE IS NEEDED NOW MORE THAN EVER

If you have any general queries, requests for bookings for meetings or requests for documents, please feel free to contact our office to arrange this.

 

BUSINESS AND TAX

The Australian Government has just updated their economic stimulus package in response to the Coronavirus and the challenges at hand. It is designed to help employers to keep their workforce levels. There are key tax benefits that business owners need to access over the next few months. We are here to help business owners receive the maximum benefits they can.

 

For any questions you may have about accounting, tax or business matters, please feel free to contact us.

 

WEALTH ADVICE

The share markets have crashed due to fear and uncertainty in the marketplace. As has always happened before, when this crisis is over the markets will quickly pick up again. Keeping a long term focus and not panicking now is the key to success.

For any questions you may have about wealth and investment matters, please contact your financial advisor or feel free to contact us to put you in touch with the appropriate professionals.

 

IMPORTANT – GET YOUR ENDURING POWER OF ATTORNEY (EPOA) AND WILL UPDATED NOW

If you have to self-quarantine or are admitted to hospital, if you don't have an EPOA then no-one else can make important business or financial decisions on your behalf.

 

We strongly recommend that you have an up to date EPOA and Will, and that your family know where these are stored.

 

We've teamed up with Sekel Grinberg Judd to offer you a fast, easy and professional way to get these documents prepared quickly.

 

Simply reply to this email or phone our office and we will email you our "Will and EPOA Data Capture Form" to get started.

 

NEXT STEPS

These are times when we need to stay calm and rely on reliable news sources and information from State and Australian Government websites. What you see on social media may be panicky and unreliable information – stay away from this!

Our team at Thomas Hopper and Partners are here to help you. Please reply to this email or phone us on 02 9929 4177 if you need any assistance!
