Finance Focus #1 2009
Franchises, Novated Leases
In This Issue:
On behalf of Stratton Finance and our employees, I would like to extend our sincere condolences to everyone who has been personally affected by Victoria's bushfires and Queensland's floods. Like all Australians, we are shocked and saddened by the devastating impact of these disasters.
Our thoughts are with all of those who have suffered the loss of loved ones, property and community, and also with the emergency services personnel and volunteers who continue to strive for safety and provide support to survivors.
If you haven't already done so, I encourage any of our clients affected by these events to call 1300 STRATTON (1300 787 288) or contact your finance consultant directly today. As well as making claims for property that requires repair or replacement, you may also need assistance with making alternative arrangements for your finance commitments. Please contact us today so that we can start helping you immediately.

Additional tax deductions for business cars & equipment
Recently we wrote about why equipment finance makes sense - especially if you have current equipment needs, but need to conserve your cash too.
