Newsletter - July 2009

The team at Corporate Express wishes all our clients a 'Happy New Financial Year'. It appears that 2010 promises to be another challenging year for some businesses, however we have noticed an upturn in activity in the last quarter of 2009 and we are confident that the trend will continue. 1 July is the usual date for changes to government fees and this year is no exception. There is good news and bad news.

Our commitment to you

We are committed to providing you with the most valuable and efficient service during the 2010 financial year by continuing to upgrade our website and 'Maq', our outsourcing and company secretarial program.

We have realised that not all of our clients are aware of all of the services we offer, so each month our 'little blue man' will highlight one particular area. Watch out for the 'specials' which will be available from time to time.

The Good News

Effective from 1 July 2009, the Office of State Revenue has amended its Cheque Acceptance Policy for Duties.

For amounts up to $600 the OSR will now accept:

For amounts between $600 and $5,000 the OSR will only accept:

For amounts over $5,000 the OSR will only accept:

The Bad News

From 1 July 2009 the city office of the Office of State Revenue permanently closed for the purpose of over the counter stamping. In lieu of this service the OSR has established a document drop off point located at the Department of Lands Head Office at 1 Prince Albert Road, Queens Square Sydney.

All documents dropped off at this point will be sent off to the OSR's Parramatta office to be assessed and stamped.

How can we assist?

We can stamp some documents in-house, such as Trusts and share transfers with nominal duty and within the NSW jurisdiction. Our fee for this service is $38.50 (GST inclusive) per transaction.

In respect of other documents we offer a lodgment and follow up service for a fee of $38.50 (GST inclusive) per transaction. The benefits to you of this service are:

A Bit More Bad News

From 1 July 2009 most of the fees for services provided by the NSW Office of Fair Trading will be increased to reflect the rise in the CPI since the last fee adjustment.

The fee for an Application for Registration of a Business Name has increased by $6.00 to $152. Accordingly our fee for providing this same day over-the-counter service for our clients is now $266 (GST and OFT fee inclusive).
