It is critical to consider a Tax Plan before this year’s harvest, given the potential for good year is about to happen. The next few weeks are crucial to this being a good or bad year depending on the rain. The last year’s Tax Concessions and to 30 June 2022 must be factored into the Plan.

I may be in the area in the near future or it can be done remotely. You must consider your position now.

Please call the Office to arrange an in-person or remote meeting before harvest.
