You are invited to join a fundraiser celebration of Women In Business on the Mornington Peninsula, for a long overdue face-to-face
catch up with friends and fellow business owners at the bright and buzzing Mercetta on Main Street, Mornington.
Enjoy a local wine and deliciously generous finger food whilst placing your bid on the incredible silent auction packages and raffle including vouchers and products from some of Mornington Peninsula’s most coveted.
2020 was undoubtedly one the most difficult years for many local businesses, yet charities who rely on donations and fundraising to continue their community support were struck even harder.
With this in mind, leading local businesswoman Shannon Smit, CEO of SMART Business Solutions and President of the Committee for Mornington
Peninsula, decided the globally recognized International Women’s Day celebration is the perfect time to turn things around and bring the
business community back together for a united cause.
HOW WE WILL FUNDRAISE
CCF (Count Charitable Foundation) alongside SMART Business Solutions will DOUBLE dollar match all funds raised from the event to donate in full to Clothes 4U.Inc, a local charity that provides clothing and toiletries for women who are experiencing domestic hardship, so they may continue to support women and advocate change.
This means, for every dollar raised, we will donate $2.
We aim to raise enough funds for Clothes 4U to pay the rent on their premises for the next 6 months.
Tickets are $49pp
Includes wine on arrival and generous finger food.
If you can't attend on 11th March but wish to show your support to
Clothes 4U Inc, you may make a $25 donation here.
On 31 March 2020, the Fringe Benefits Tax (FBT) year ends. With the ever increasing budget deficits, the ATO will be reviewing whether all employers who should be paying FBT are, and that they are paying the right amount. Who needs to lodge a FBT return? Find out here.
With the borders between the State and Territories all but open and 2021 in sight, there is a hunger for a return to normal. With Australia's desire to ‘get on with things,' sentiment reached its highest level since November 2013 and Christmas spending is expected to be consistent with previous years.
Stimulating investment is high on the Government’s agenda. To encourage spending, the 2020-21 Budget introduced a measure that allows businesses to immediately deduct the cost of new depreciable assets and the cost of improvements to existing assets in the first year of use.
