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…

to Buy or Not to Buy, is timing the question?
