Greetings colleagues and friends,

AS AN INDUSTRY BODY WE ARE WORKING DILIGENTLY TO IDENTIFY WAYS TO SUPPORT YOU and keep you up-to-date with important information.  April 2020 is not what we expected to have.  The current social distancing and lockdown requirements have impacted all your businesses and have also impacted us.  We have had to cut down on our own staff, so please be patient with us as we endeavour to respond to all your needs one-by-one when you reach out to us.

Daily, things will change and in this fluid environment it is important that as business owners and professionals we keep on top of changes, stay connect and take care of ourselves.  Please make sure that you access the economic assistance that is currently available by the Federal and State Governments.  

“You may not always have a comfortable life and you will not always be able to solve all of the world’s problems at once, but don’t ever underestimate the importance your contribution can have, because history has shown us that courage can be contagious and hope can take on a life of its own.” — Michelle Obama

In this newsletter, we will provide you with updates on the FINANCIAL STIMULUS, however, while we will be presenting the general guidelines, business owners are urged to speak with their accountant because depending on your business structure there are different financial relief options.
