    What are people saying about our "Putting it on Paper" Workshops around the state?  We have had over 300 people attend our workshops so far and they are being very well received for being practical, helpful and easy to understand.  

    "The Toowoomba workshop yesterday was very well received by all attendees, I know my table who consisted of all long term transport industry owners / managers really appreciated the way Karen delivered the topic at a level that we all could understand and then easily relate it to our daily processes.  This certainly removed a lot of the unknown and fear of the new COR requirements.  Thank you QTA,  for your efforts, I will certainly be passing this workshop information on all that can benefit from it." 

    Just a quick note to congratulate you all on a great workshop presentation in Warwick last night, well done.  Karen , I think the turning point for the crowd was when you spoke about ‘’changing the steer tyre in the desert "

    "Thanks Legends.....Greatly Appreciated !!....Cheers....."

    "We were so pleased we attended. It was extremely well presented and helped us enormously.  Karen Bow did a brilliant job of presenting the facts.  In our case it gave us re-assurance that we were on the right path. She also made herself available to speak one on one to all who required some individual case info.  Lisa Acret was also good to speak to and I found her extremely helpful.  As a result we would like to become a member of QTA."

    Next week's sessions are in Brisbane with only limited places available at Caboolture on Thursday 26th July, 8am-11.00am.  The sessions at The Glen and the Port of Brisbane have sold out.  

    To express your interest to attend an evening session in Brisbane, register here and you will be advised when the date has been confirmed.

    The Australian Taxation Office (ATO) have designed Tax Time Toolkits to help Australians correctly prepare and lodge their tax returns. In some tax areas, taxpayers are at risk of making a mistake. These areas include:

    • work-related expenses – knowing what you can and can’t claim
    • rental properties – understanding what income you need to declare and what deductions you can claim
    • income – knowing what to declare
    • gifts and donations – knowing what you can and can’t claim
    • record keeping – keeping the right records so you can substantiate your claims and don’t miss out on a deduction.

    The content in the toolkits is designed to be made available to your staff, networks and clients. The toolkits contain a range of information and resources that can be used or adapted for your own communication channels.

    The ATO has tailored a Toolkit specific for the Transport and Logistics industry to support transport and logistic organisations and staff. Download the FREE 28 page - Transport nd Logistics Toolkit now
