The ATO are looking very closely at what you are claiming.
We are suggesting as a priority you speak to one of our experienced accountants. With tax avoidance costing Australians 3 billion dollars annually, we thought it would be a great time to re-enforce just what you can claim, what you can’t claim and how to make a claim.

Spotlight on
Probus East Doncaster

We have been given the privilege of speaking at the Doncaster East Probus Club’s meeting on the 5th September 2014. As a client of Roy A. McDonald/ Lindale Insurances, and on behalf of the Club we would like to extend to you an invitation to attend the meeting and get important and relevant information about aged care.

If you haven’t heard of Probus before we suggest you visit the Club’s web site and then call the Club Secretary on 03 9842 6898 and see if Probus might be a fit for you. The club aims to provide active retirees with fellowship, friendship, social outings and a wide range of other activities.

We met up with John Bruce, the Club’s Vice President and were amazed by his energy and inspired by his passion to have fun. If you are retired, semi-retired or thinking of retiring, and want to have fun, meet like-minded people and do lots of exciting activities, there is no better place than Probus Doncaster East.
