COVID-19: who’s going full doomsday prep on this?

Lockdowns have cut into the blowing hobo market
It’s possible I’ve misfilled something or directed myself off in the wrong direction. Form filling especially when they make it this difficult is not my forte.
When the red mist clears and I’ve finished homeschooling for the day I’ll give it another crack. At the end of they day this isn’t really a stimulus package. They don’t want you to claim it.
There has to be someone that is capable of looking at an individuals circumstances and suggest they are eligible for X / Y / Z ? Although having said that I am sure its so complicated that most people would have no idea.

We found out after we started our business about all the things we could have gotten to start our business. Of course once its up and running its all too late.

Cocaine? That will do it.
Sorry to hear @Jpez. I've got a metro mate in the same boat. Had been able to open for about 6 weeks in the last 9 months. Recieved a single payment in that time, was just enough to cover one month rent. Nothing else available to him. :(

A lot of the places realise people need to start having confidence to plan or they just wont get any business I think.
last christmas we wanted to book a place in keira, their policy was no refund under 2 weeks notice. we werent willing to gamble our holiday fund on getting nothing so we didnt book. no closure at the time and places were still unrented. whatever they save by not allowing cancellations must hav cost them a lot more in people just not going.

A good accountant can more than pay for themselves in this sort of stuff, on top of saving you dealing with paperwork you dont always understand.
 

PINT of Stella. mate!

Given the street price of a gram of cocaine* vs the Government's paltry Job-keeper replacement payments I don't think that's really an economically viable substitute when you want to cause an anthrax scare.

*about $400 a gram according to the ladies at my local CWA

$400 a gran! Those grannies are ripping you off. Don't pay more than $200 and she should have an impressive resume at that price.

Yeah it’s 2steps forward 3 steps back at the moment. Impossible to get ahead. Still I know I’m one of the lucky ones. Doesn’t make me want to rage at the government any less though..

Good idea. Should ring my accountant and see what she knows.

I was giving SW Sydney the benefit of the doubt but this is just ridiculous! 124 new cases and many of them are due to people visiting other families! FFS! And now thanks to some dick fingered tradie from the SW who visited Belrose Bunnings, there's a cluster in Belrose/French's Forest with 2 nursing home staff infected.

All this bullshit about Gladys being too harsh on SW Sydney due to them being poorer or more multi-cultural was just bullshit. It's because they're morons and she knew it.
