If you’re at all interested in: maintenance concrete polishing or want to be advised of those that come on the market Please drop me a line at denise@xcllusive.com.au and I can fill you in with further details as they come to hand.

CASE STUDY: From $6 to $5668 per qtr in GST in just 3 years…

Who would think it is pleasing to use Tax as a Growth Indicator? This story from one of my charges (Julie Demczuk of www.exclusivepmg.com.au) just this week, got to love a share such as this: I’m sitting in my office on my own thinking about when I first started the business.  I remember saying to my bookkeeper I can’t wait until I start paying GST.  I was so excited when my first GST bill was $6.  After three  years my GST bill for the last quarter is $5,668. What an amazing difference. What an amazing difference indeed! Whilst I haven’t contributed…
