Working from home during COVID-19? Here’s what you need to know about the ATO’s new tax shortcuts

There's a lot going on right now. While we're all here balancing important things like work (or lack of) with equally important activities like learning the ukulele and circulating Tiger King memes, it probably hasn't crossed your busy mind that the end of the financial year is looming and it's almost tax time. Right now, a sizeable portion of Australians are working from home for the very first time – so, what happens come June 30? What expenses can we actually claim? How on earth do we calculate it? Wipe those sweaty palms dry, folks – tax time is going to be a lot easier than you think. more

Upskill for the post-pandemic world with brain-training online short courses

We've all got quite a bit of extra time on our hands now. Time that we'd normally spend being well within 1.5 metres of our friends and family, going into an actual workplace and enjoying the convivial hospitality at our favourite cafes, bars and restaurants (oh, how we miss that). If you've found yourself spiralling into the Netflix vortex and want to utilise this 'free time' you've been unexpectedly given a little more wisely, then perhaps it's time to train your brain and get stuck into an online course. If you've considered dipping your toe into a different field of work, yearn to learn a new skill or just want to satisfy your hungry mind, the time is now – and there are plenty of online courses at your fingertips. more

How to support the local Brisbane arts and music scene during the coronavirus crisis

Brisbane, right now our beloved music and arts industry (among others) is in crisis. All over the world, musicians are being forced to cancel concerts and tours left and right to try to curb the spread of coronavirus. Industry bodies are tallying losses over $200 million in Australia's music scene alone, and there will be more to come. While public health is paramount, the cancellations have affected everyone from artists to crew, management, promoters, agents, vendors, publicists, merchandisers, drivers, loaders, riggers and everyone else who relied on live events for their income. Visual artists have also taken a heavy hit to their ability to generate a living with city-wide gallery closures forcing the cancellation of upcoming exhibitions. We're all facing a tough road ahead but if you are in a position to help, here are a few ways you can show your support to Brisbane's struggling… more
