Tax in 2020-21: The abridged version

An essential session for all those fatigued by the pace of change, the workload, and just a little uncertain about whether anything important has been missed.

We explore the important Budget 2020-21 measures, the issues and complexities arising from the stimulus measures, and the issues as we head into 2021.

We also look at other major developments in the tax system, such as the recent Full Federal Court decision that impacts on how we might approach the active asset test for accessing the small business CGT concessions for clients.

1:35pm - 2.35pm AEDT (subject to change)

The Art of Getting Money into Super

Since the introduction of a Total Super Balance, it’s been increasingly difficult to get money into super. Changes introduced in 2020 however, have opened the door to contribution strategy planning.

This case study driven session demonstrates how the current contribution rules can be used to boost superannuation balances and assist clients to thrive in retirement. We take a practical look at concessional and non-concessional contributions as well as the increasingly popular downsizer contribution.

Working Positively in an Uncertain & Changing

2020 has been an adrenaline fueled, frustrating, and fatiguing year. The way we work has been turned upside down. We simply can’t do things the way we did last year, and that can be exhausting.

Scott looks at the impact of uncertainty and delivers the proven strategies to recognise and manage change in a way that will help you and your team stay positive and engaged. A sure fire way to enter the New Year with renewed optimism and purpose.

  • How do we take control during change? – the power of perception
  • Working positively in an uncertain and changing environment
  • Being proactive rather than reactive
  • Dealing with resistance
  • Overcoming denial and negativity
  • Managing others through change
  • Working collaboratively in a changing environment

4.05pm - 5.05pm AEDT
