Tax Breaks, Warranties
|In This Issue:
Official interest rates, tax breaks and the Federal Government's stimulus package are all hot topics in homes and offices around the country. The Reserve Bank's decision to keep interest rates on hold at their last meeting has sparked economic conversations across the country.
Whether we can expect further rate cuts remains to be seen. What we do know is that there are plenty of incentives for smart buyers to grab bargains - everything from business machinery to family cars to luxury marques.

With an immediate additional tax deduction of up to 30% of the cost of an eligible asset available, we've received a number of e-mail and phone requests for more information. Find the answers to your Temporary Investment Allowance tax break questions here.
