Important: An update on Scanlon Richardson Financial Group’s response to COVID-19
In light of the recent developments around the Coronavirus (or COVID-19) and the uncertainty we are all facing day to day, we felt it important to assure you that we expect no major interruptions to the services that we provide to you.
OUR CLOUD SYSTEMS MEAN YOU CAN ALWAYS CONTACT US IF YOU NEED US
While we don’t know if we’ll be working from our office or working from our homes in coming weeks, we have invested heavily in the latest technology over the past years, and this means we can keep assisting you no matter what may happen.
For now we are carrying on with normal business operations, however we have tested our remote work systems to ensure everyone has the resources and tools they need to do their jobs from any location. We will continue to support our customers and normal business operations from our office while continuing to monitor advice from Government and health officials.
All members of our team are able to work remotely and have access to all the technology systems and tools they use daily to assist their clients. With our new systems we are able to offer the following to allay any concerns you may have over unnecessary contact:-
- We can conduct face to face appointments remotely
- We are able to send tax documents electronically by email plus our new electronic signature system (Docusign) allows you to sign with the click of a button https://www.srfinancialgroup.com.au/signing-documents/
- You can pay our invoice via the Quickfee page on our website and pay in monthly instalments if you need to spread the cost https://www.srfinancialgroup.com.au/pay-now/

Please keep emailing or phoning your accountants and advisors at Scanlon Richardson Financial Group when you need us, and we will be here to help you!
GOOD ADVICE IS NEEDED NOW MORE THAN EVER
If you have any general queries, requests for bookings for meetings or requests for documents, please feel free to contact your accountant.
Business and Tax
The Australian Government has just released their $17.6 billion economic stimulus package in response to the Coronavirus. It is designed to help employers to keep their workforce levels. There are key tax benefits that business owners need to access over the next few months. Our expert accountants are here to help business owners receive the maximum benefits they can.
For any questions you may have about accounting, tax or business matters, please do not hesitate to contact us.
IMPORTANT – GET YOUR ENDURING POWER OF ATTORNEY (EPOA) AND WILL UPDATED NOW
If you have to self-quarantine or are admitted to hospital, if you don’t have an EPOA then no-one else can make important business or financial decisions on your behalf.
We strongly recommend that you have an up to date EPOA and Will, and that your family know where these are stored.
These are times when we need to stay calm and rely on reliable news sources and information from State and Australian Government websites. What you see on social media may be panicky and unreliable information – stay away from this!
Our team at Scanlon Richardson Financial Group are here to help you. Please phone us on 03 62313448 if you need any assistance.
With kind regards and best wishes for the health and wellbeing of you and your family from all of us at Scanlon Richardson.
