Hi Everyone,

Coronavirus (or COVID-19) is certainly upon us, and given the uncertainty, we wanted to assure you that we expect no major disruptions to the services that we provide to you.

We are however taking action to reduce the potential risk and spread of COVID-19.

OUR TEAM IS FULLY FUNCTIONAL REMOTELY 

Although we have no reported or confirmed cases of the virus, effective today 18 March, we have asked our team to work from home (WFH) until further notice.  

This decision reflects our priority to keep our people, clients and community safe and well. Flexibility is an important part of our DNA at Rising Tide, so the decision to WFH feels right.
It will also help keep our premises free of the virus, should you or our people need to attend in-person meetings at our office.

We have invested heavily in the latest technology in recent years, and this means we can keep assisting you no matter what may happen. 
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. 

Your adviser, accountant, lending specialist & admin team are still all available via email, phone or online conference (zoom).
 

GOOD ADVICE IS NEEDED NOW MORE THAN EVER


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 feel free to email (braden@ctrt.com.au) or lock in a time to chat over the phone via this link

Your lending needs 

The bank are still processing and settling loans, so it is business as usual. It’s a great time to review your existing lending, or work out a strategy for your next purchase. Please feel free to email (tom@ctrt.com.au) or lock in a time to chat over the phone via this link

Your Wealth

The share markets have crashed due to fear and uncertainty in the marketplace. As has always happened before, when this crisis is over the markets will quickly pick up again. Keeping a long term focus and not panicking now is the key to success. Please email (matt@ctrt.com.au) or lock in a time to chat over the phone via this link

Your Plan B

Having a plan B, whether it be insurances or just a buffer of cash is incredibly important. If you have any questions, or want to make some positive changes to your Plan B, please feel free to email (matt@ctrt.com.au) or lock in a time to chat over the phone via this link

NEXT STEPS

We’ve seen unprecedented changes and chaos in the past month, but we’re hopeful and encouraged by the opportunity for unprecedented love and support.
Our team at Rising Tide are here to help you and your families. If there’s something you’re unsure about, excited about or want to check in on, please email (matt@ctrt.com.au) or lock in a time to chat over the phone via this link.
