Rewind to 2017 and Johnny Ryan and Phillipa Harper were keen to own their own business. A chance conversation with friends led them to look at Just Cabins: a franchise network across New Zealand. Their friends, Roger and Helen Stonehouse already owned the Just Cabins Hawke’s Bay territory but were keen to split the area in two. Whilst Johnny admits that the idea of a franchise (and having to meet franchisee conditions) had never appealed before, they quickly saw the benefits.

The Government has announced legislation providing for new GST rules on low-value imported goods. The proposed changes will have effect from 1 October 2019.
Offshore suppliers and re-deliverers will be required to register for GST if their total taxable supplies to NZ consumers exceeds $60,000 per year.
After extensive public consultation, the Government has drafted legislation to introduce a research and development (R&D) tax credit of 15% on eligible R&D expenditure. This legislation is expected to pass early next year and will apply from the beginning of the 2020 income tax year. For early balance dates, it will apply for years beginning 1 November 2018. The new R&D tax credit will replace the Callaghan Growth Grants which will be phased out by 31 March 2021.

The year is rapidly coming to a close and apart from wondering where it went, 2018 appears to have been a year of growth! We’ve seen it in our business, our team, clients’ businesses, the Hawke’s Bay region and the PKF network.
In a fast-paced world, it’s exciting to see that businesses in Hawke’s Bay and New Zealand are not only keeping up with change, but moving forward and in some cases leading the way!
