    make sure they realise the price goes up to match the length especially if they won't let you in
    Anything Ian says may or may not be garbage, it may also be his own opinion or it may not be his opinion at all, it may just be something he felt like stating anyone following his advice does so at their own risk and may be doing something Ian would actually advise against.
    And if you don't like what Ian has to say use the ignore function if you don't know how ask i will gladly tell you

    it will do, same happened last year in april when we had first lockup. Only 2 people complained, 1 i had taken photos to prove growth, they were ok after that.
    the other 1 cancelled & refused to pay, even tho 1 had only charged extra $20 on a $40 mow. pissed me off as i dont rip customers off, & it was 3 flats that she owned, & lived in 1, & still took same income over that period!

    I was just reading the article below and it appears that the Federal Government $430/$750 Covid disaster payment is classed as a disaster payment not job keeper therefore tax free

    Just read a report that after the violent protests today the Government the government is looking at shutting down the construction industry for 2 weeks so I suppose we'll have to wait and see if these Fwits protesting get us closed down as well wouldn't surprise me,last thing I want is 2 weeks of not allowed to work at this time of the year

    Does anyone actually know if we should be working or not?? Again, my brain is fried with "should i or not". I am GST registered and have been receiving the grant. I have knocked over quite a bit of landscaping work but have been holding off on house to house jobs but was going to ramp it up this week only due to growth now starting to happen and clients asking for me. What is everyone else doing today with this latest closure of building sites? Its all as clear as mud as usual with this ****e........................double jabbed and getting over these lockdowns very quickly

    Up until yesterday, yes we were allowed back working solo. Not sure though if anything changes due to the construction changes overnight, we were listed differently on the authorised list, so I am guessing we a still ok, but waiting for the DHHS website to be updated to confirm
