Welcome to the 2021/2022 financial year!

Are you participating in the JobMaker Hiring Credit scheme? Last year the government announced a scheme where eligible employers could receive a payment when hiring younger employees. Find out more in this article.

Returning to work after taking parental leave can be challenging for many reasons. Childcare is expensive, so it’s essential to understand the costs and what rebates you may be entitled to. Your priorities financially will have changed too, therefore, setting yourself a budget is a good way to keep track of your money.

From 1 July 2022, the minimum age limit for the ‘downsizer scheme’ will reduce from 65 to 60. Here, we explain the scheme in more detail and highlight several important things you should consider before selling your home.

With interest rates at an all-time low, it doesn’t necessarily mean you've got the best deal with your lender. This job is usually put in the 'too-hard basket'. If you don't have time to shop around, a finance broker may be able to do the work for you. 

With some of us still working from home regularly, finding the right balance between work and family can be difficult. Can you switch off at the end of the day or do you continue working to please your boss? Excessive hours can lead to burnout so it's important to realise there needs to be a good balance between the two. 

We love to hear from you, so please feel free to contact us with any questions about our articles in this newsletter on (08) 9459 7155 or email
