In this month's newsletter, we find out about debt consolidation and refinancing and ways to overcome Zoom fatigue.

If you own business premises and rented it out during COVID-19, you may have given your tenant a rent concession or, as a tenant - received a rent concession from your landlord. Make sure you include this information in your 2020-2021 tax return.

Do you have multiple loans or debts? Debt consolidation or refinancing could be an alternate option. Be aware of what fees and costs are associated when consolidating your debts to ensure you are not paying more over the long run.

Superannuation is generally a long-term investment, so when it comes to choosing a super fund, you can go with your employer’s default fund or choose your own. Discover what you should look for when choosing a super fund and how to compare different funds. 

You may be one of the thousands of people who received JobKeeper payments last financial year. Remember, this is deemed as income and must be included in the last financial year's tax return. Find out more here.

Did you know ‘Zoom fatigue’ was a thing? Working from home can mean more Zoom meetings and this could be causing Zoom fatigue. In our final article, we explore what it is, and suggest a few ideas you can put in place so you can overcome it.

We love to hear from you, so please feel free to contact us with any questions about our articles in this newsletter on T (02) 9436 2301 or email info@nsg.com.au .
