Speaker Evening March 23: Money and Business Matters

The Sydney Freelance Journalists Group is holding a panel discussion evening on Tuesday March 23 to discuss Money and Business Matters.
Do want to know:

· How to manage your cash flow?
· What you can claim as deductions at tax time?
· About superannuation and income protection – do you have them?
· If you should be charging GST?
· The benefits of paying your PAYG annually instead of quarterly?
· What you should have on your personal tax checklist?

If you want to know the answers to these questions – or any other financial questions – join us for the panel discussion.

Alternatively, come along for a drink and share some nibbles and conversation with other freelance journalists.
