We Are Open And Here To Help
In light of the recent developments around the Coronavirus (or COVID-19) and the uncertainty we are all facing day to day, we felt it important to email you to assure you that we expect no major interruptions to the services we provide to you.
OUR CLOUD SYSTEMS MEAN YOU CAN ALWAYS CONTACT US IF YOU NEED US

Business and Tax
The Australian Government has released their $17.6 billion economic stimulus package in response to the Coronavirus. 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 sent out an email yesterday to our business clients explaining the package. Our accountants are here to help business owners receive the maximum benefits they are entitled to.
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 investing success. For any questions you may have about wealth and investment matters, please feel free to contact our advisers John Menelaou, Colin Tutty or Karen Black on 8376 0455.
You need to conserve cash and reduce debt. If you would like us to compare your current loans with what is in the market at present, phone Fairuz Azli on 8376 0455. There may be significant savings.
Now is not the time to cancel insurances. Please ring John Menelaou on 8376 0455 if you want to review your cover.
IMPORTANT – GET YOUR ENDURING POWER OF ATTORNEY (EPOA) AND WILL UPDATED NOW
If you have to self-quarantine or are admitted to hospital and if you do not 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 your family know where these are stored.
We refer you to Katrina Nitschke of Wills Direct or Anthony Barilla of Scales and Partners (Glenelg office) to offer you a fast, easy and professional way to get these documents prepared quickly.
Their phone numbers are Katrina 0400 421 370 and Anthony 8294 5253.
These are times when we need to stay calm and seek 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 Sheridans are here to help you. Please phone us on 8376 0455 if you need any assistance or just need to talk.
