Have your Say

City of Port Adelaide Enfield are excited to announce the commencement of the first round of engagement for the development of the City of PAE’s first Integrated Transport Strategy (ITS).

The development of the ITS 2021-31 is the opportunity for us to plan for and create a people-friendly transport environment that aligns with council strategies and leaves us well placed to respond to changing environments.

The key themes of the ITS will include:

• Traffic management and road safety

• Active modes of transport - walking and cycling

• Parking management

• Public transport

This important body of work will influence many areas across Council and the project team will be engaging with our internal stakeholders over the coming weeks to discuss current challenges and future opportunities to be considered in the preparation of the draft strategy.

The first round of community engagement will be open to the public till 5pm Friday 7 August 2020 and further information can be viewed via the below link to Council’s have your say website.

Accounting Advice

The instant asset write-off will be extended by a further six months to 31st of December 2020

The scheme provides immediate tax deductions for small and medium-sized businesses, rather than a depreciation model over several years.

Businesses with an annual turnover of less than $500 million per annum are able to take advantage of the extended scheme, expected to cost $300 million. Some 3.5 million businesses are eligible.

Assets purchased can be new or second hand, and the threshold for each asset is $150,000 (up from the previous $30,000).

The threshold was to have been lowered to $1000 on 1 July, but the extension of the scheme has deferred this change for the moment.

Further information and eligibility criteria can be found on the ATO website here (although I note the end date hasn't been updated yet):
