Expo to tackle the GST head on

THIS year’s Business Oppor-tunities and Franchise Expo will include a one-stop GST solution shop.

Exhibition organiser Leigh Kealton said the Australian Tax Office would have a major presence at the expo, including one-on-one GST advice booths and regular seminars on the new tax systems.

However, Mr Kealton said he was also keen for other people with expertise in the new tax system area, or products to help people adapt to the new system, to also be involved in the information dissemination.

He hopes such people will run seminars and exhibit at the show.

Along with the ATO, representatives of the Small Business Development Corporation’s GST Transition Centre will also be present.

SBDC managing director George Etrelezis said business people in taxation-related fields such as accounting and software should not miss the opportunity to promote their products and services.

“Last year’s expo attracted 5,000 visitors,” Mr Etrelezis said.

“This forum presents an excellent opportunity for businesses to promote their expertise and services to both new and existing business owners.

Mr Etrelezis said there were severnty-six booths available at the expo, however these were selling fast.

This year’s expo will also include a focus on inventions and innovation.

Mr Etrelezis said the SBDC would coordinate the inventions and innovations forum through its Business Innovation Development Scheme.

“This is of particular benefit to people such as patent attorneys and trade mark specialists who will be able to highlight and promote their services,” he said.

The expo runs from 5 to 7 May at the Burswood Dome.
