*The below is an extract from The Sydney Morning Herald
Australia is making moves to support its businesses that were drastically affected by the coronavirus pandemic. But how? On 6 October 2020, as part of the 2020–21 Budget, the government announced a loss carry-back regime to enable usually profitable businesses the opportunity to stay afloat until they turn a profit. The financial lifeline of businesses could potentially be saved through this temporary tax break scheme.
Introducing the Loss Carry-Back Policy
Under the loss carry-back policy, a firm that has paid tax on profits in previous years can claim a refund to make up for the loss that occurred due to the pandemic. It is seen as a way by tax experts to give vital cash flow to businesses that would have been profitable if not for strict lockdown and restrictions to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
Thanks to the loss carry-back provision scheme, hundreds of thousands of Australians employed by usually profitable businesses would be protected.
The loss carry-back policy has also been implemented in other parts of the world by strong nations alike. They include the United States, Britain, Germany, Austria, Japan, and New Zealand. Thus, the Morrison government has mirrored the policy to support their local businesses of all sizes and giving them the chance to claim back some of the tax paid pre-COVID to offset losses.
PwC tax partner Jonathon Malone said the advantage of loss carry-back rules was that they would support businesses that were profitable and contributing to the government’s coffers in the good times, absent a global pandemic.
“Introducing a loss carry-back provision is eminently sensible and would not take much to put in place because we’ve already done it,” he said. “We’ve done this before, we should do it again.”
Support for the Small to Medium Enterprises
The budget will also contain other measures aimed at helping the small business sector through the recession.
“Small business is the backbone of our economy. The Morrison government will continue to support our small and medium-sized businesses as part of our economic recovery plan,” Treasurer Josh Frydenberg said.
Who else is Eligible for the Loss Carry-Back scheme?
The Australian Taxation Office states that the “Eligible corporate entities with less than $5 billion turnovers in a relevant loss year can carry back losses made in the 2019–20, 2020–21 and 2021–22 financial years to a prior fiscal year’s income tax liability in the 2018–19, 2019–20 and 2020–21 financial years.”

Qantas’ ‘Flight to Nowhere’ Tickets Sold Out in 10 Minutes
Pre-pandemic, many of us viewed flying simply as a method of getting from one destination to another as quickly as possible. But amid global restrictions, travelers have been daydreaming not only about far-flung destinations but the flying experience itself — from the thrill of the take-off to the unmatched views of the Earth from the cabin window.
That’s where “flights to nowhere” come in — air travel that takes place simply for the experience of being on the aircraft and not the destination.
This strikes an opportunity for airlines.
In fact, Qantas, the Australian airline, has announced plans for a seven-hour scenic flight that will perform a giant loop in Queensland and the Gold Coast, New South Wales, and the country’s remote outback heartlands.
Proving how popular these now are, a sightseeing flight to nowhere offered by Qantas sold out within 10 minutes, according to the airline, with passengers eager to take to the skies at a time when Australia has grounded almost all international flights paying premium prices.
“It’s probably the fastest selling flight in Qantas history – one seat every four seconds,” the airline’s CEO, Alan Joyce, said in a statement.
“People clearly miss travel and the experience of flying. If the demand is there, we’ll definitely look at doing more of these scenic flights while we all wait for borders to open.”
“That’s one seat every four seconds,” David Flynn, Editor-In-Chief of Executive Traveller commented.
If there’s no destination, what do they do on the ‘Flight to Nowhere’?
From above, keen fliers will be flown across and spot famous Aussie attractions, including Sydney Harbour and the Great Barrier Reef. The jet will do a low flyover over certain landmarks, including Uluru and Bondi Beach. On top of the luscious views, special onboard entertainment will be available, including a surprise celebrity host.
The journey will take place on a Qantas Boeing 787 Dreamliner aircraft, usually reserved for intercontinental journeys across continents. There are currently very few flights operating to and from Australia due to travel restrictions, and Qantas international fleet has been grounded.
The Dreamliner is renowned for its big windows, making it ideal for sightseeing from 30,000 feet. Flight QF787, due to depart Sydney Domestic Airport on October 10 and return to the Australian metropolis seven hours later, had 134 tickets on sale — spanning business class, premium economy, and economy and costing from AUD$787 to $3,787 (US$566 to $2,734).
Other airlines have hopped on the trend selling their own versions of ‘Flight to Nowhere” tickets.
Across Asia, where most borders remain closed, limiting leisure tourism, there have been several recent flights with no destination.
Qantas’ flight follows on the heels of EVA Air’s Taiwan-based flight to nowhere, which offered a one-off journey on August 8, onboard its Hello Kitty-themed A330 Dream jet.
Meanwhile, All Nippon Airways (ANA) also operated a short scenic flight in Japan in August, which the airline said sought to replicate “the Hawaiian resort experience,” with 300 travellers boarding the 1.5-hour flight.
And on September 19, a scenic flight is due to depart Taipei Airport, offering 120 Taiwanese tourists the opportunity to view South Korea’s Jeju island from the sky.
According to the Korea Tourism Organization’s press release, the journey is an experience in itself, offering an in-flight quiz show and local cuisine.
Singapore Airlines is also reportedly considering operating flights to nowhere from October, according to the local Straits Times newspaper.
A spokesperson for Singapore Airlines told CNN Travel that the airline “is considering several initiatives that would allow us to continue engaging both our customers and members of the public. Currently, none of these plans have been firmed up.”
From an environmental perspective, the proposal of a flight to nowhere is potentially contentious.
But while there might be concerns about unnecessary fuel usage, COVID-19 worries might be mitigated by recent scientific studies that suggest the odds of catching COVID on an airplane are less than you might think, due to the air ventilation systems.
That said, all the airlines are operating their scenic flights with COVID-19 regulations in place.

IT services company Datacom has announced its plans to expand into South Australia, by opening a second customer service hub in Adelaide.
In a statement the South Australian Premier Steven Marshall said “The company is expanding its presence in SA at a time when we’re rebooting the economy.
Our handling of COVID-19 has presented us with an opportunity to pitch South Australia as a safer and better place to do business, and this will be a focus for us as we chart our road to recovery.”
Datacom’s pre-existing office is situated in Modbury with a staff of around 1,200. A large percentage of employees working at the site in IT and customer service had been previously unemployed and undertook training and development with the company.
The second hub for Datacom will be modelled after the first hub and based in Noarlunga, the city’s Southern suburbs. Noarlunga will expect to provide some 650 new jobs to the area, servicing customer support services for private sector and government clients.
The new jobs announced by Datacom were much-needed and is a major win for the state, said South Australian Premier Steven Marshall.
“With the new centre at Noarlunga we will continue to work alongside our clients and partners to ensure we can offer employment opportunities for those who need them while maintaining our high standards of support for our customers.”
“Investments like this will be critical to kick start our economy following the impact of COVID-19,” Marshall said
Datacom was started in New Zealand in 1965 and since has expanded to operate in Australia, United States, United Kingdom, Malaysia and the Philippines. The company offers management and consulting of services such as Cloud, ITO, Data Centre and software development and payroll.

Australia – the land of plentiful opportunities – has made its migration and settlement processes fairly easy, transparent and less time consuming. Unlike other developed western world, Australia is open to migrants with talent and skills that can help further boost the economy of the country. The country attracts migrants from world over. There’s virtually no one barred from applying for Australian migration if they fit the eligibility criteria.
However, there are instances where the aspiring migrants are refused a visa to Australia. Best Migration Services Australia (BMS Australia) recently sketched a list of common reasons regarding visa refusals. The list concisely outlines some very basic reasons why some migrants are refused entry to settle in the continent. The list is comprehensive in a way that it highlights detailed information that the migration aspirants tend to – nearly always – overlook or take for granted.
Here are the 3 most common reasons we have picked out for you from the list published by BMS Australia!
Not lodging the correct visa application
The number one reason for Australian visa refusal is non eligibility for a particular visa. For instance, if you are applying to migrate to Australia as a general skilled migrant, then your profile should match the profession you’ve opted for in your application lodgement. An electrical engineer portraying as a sales executive will certainly ruin his chances for his migration application under the Skilled Visa regime. A technical sales representative filing her application as a customer service executive is also one such example where a visa might be refused.
Lack of documentary evidence
Documents and supportive evidence – these are the two essentials that you should not go wrong with. Your visa application and the outcome practically depend on these two factors. The Australian authorities will vet and scrutinize through the documentary evidence you submit in order to check your eligibility for migration under a certain visa. For instance, if you are an experienced HVAC installer but don’t have the diploma or the certification to prove your channels of attaining knowledge; you might have a visa rejection on the cards. Similarly, for spouse visa, if you are unable to establish evidence of a legitimate relationship with your partner via documentary evidence; the outcome might not hold promising news for you. Documentary evidence is of utmost importance and only an experienced MARA Agent – like one from the BMS team – can guide you on the right documents you need for a certain visa type.
Doctored claims and evidences
The background check mechanism of the Australian Home Affairs and Immigration department are very comprehensive and fool-proof. Hiding any past convictions, forging work documents and faking education in your Australian Visa application will not only eliminate any chances of your getting the visa but you might also face stringent consequences on charges of trying to game the system. Similarly, you don’t really get off the Australian Immigration department’s radar even after you get the visa and have landed. Any concealment of facts with a mala fide intention to forge your way into Australia can land you in a lot of trouble with authorities in Australia and at home. Forgery of evidence is a case so serious that even an Australian lawyer or MARA Agent will not be able to assist you with your post visa refusal appeal. However, in case, there was any unintentional error or oversight when lodging the application and providing the documents then you might benefit from consulting an immigration specialist to investigate your case and advise you accordingly.
These are the 3 most common reasons that result in Australian Visa refusals. For a complete list of 7 such causes listed at BMS Australia, please click here.

Australia – the land of plentiful – has made it easier for aspiring migrants to migrate and settle down in the continent. Australia is a huge country that enjoys a dynamic economy bundled with mega infrastructure developments. The Australian authorities have made the migration process transparent, robust and less time-consuming for those who have the skills and talents that are needed in the country.
Mostly, the skilled immigrants migrate to Australia with their spouse and children. However, like every other society and culture, Australian norms about the institution of a family being together are no different. That is one of the reasons that Australian authorities have introduced a myriad of parent visa subclasses so that migrants do not have to leave their parents behind when pursuing their dreams of a secure future in Australia.
As a migrant, you are entitled to apply for parents’ visa to visit you or live with you in Australia. This means that you can have your parents visit you during vacations or you can simply have them live with you as a permanent resident just like you. The range of visas is extensive. However, in order to increase your chances of a promising outcome for your parents’ visa, you’ll need to select the right visa subclass when lodging the application.
As per the Australian Immigration Authorities, there are 7 visa subclasses that are available for parent visa applications. All these 7 visa subclasses cover different types of parent visas that have varying eligibility.
The Parent Visa Subclasses
- Subclass 804 Aged Parent visa
- Subclass 884 Contributory Aged Parent (Temporary) visa
- Subclass 864 Contributory Aged Parent visa
- Subclass 173 Contributory Parent (Temporary) visa
- Subclass 143 Contributory Parent visa
- Subclass 103 Parent visa
- Subclass 870 Sponsored Parent (Temporary) visa
Each of these subclasses has a different eligibility criteria and requirements. However, following are some of the requirements of the Australian Parents visa that you might find common in all Australian parent visa subclasses eligibility criterion.
- The sponsor of the parents must either be an Australian citizen or a permanent resident.
- The sponsor can provide financial assurity bonds and other documentation that proves that the sponsor is able to take care of the parents without having to rely on any form of governmental support.
- The parents pass the balance of family test. Your parents meet the balance of family test only if
- at least half of their children and stepchildren are eligible Australian Permanent Residents or Citizens
- there are more eligible children living in Australia than in any other country
- at least half of their children and stepchildren are eligible Australian Permanent Residents or Citizens
- Generally, the onshore parents visa requires your parents to be at least 65 years of age when applying for a permanent visa.
- Your parents will also need to meet the health and character criteria set by the Australian authorities.
Also, there is another way that you can have your parents with you in lesser duration for longer. However, the mechanics of that method requires lots of paperwork, documentation processing and its more of an “Only FBP Can” secret. Stay with us as we will be revealing part of that secrets in our upcoming blog posts about parent visas
Where to start?
You will have to start by selecting the right visa subclass for your parents. For this purpose, you’ll have to identify if you want your parents to come over for the purpose of visiting you or you want them to settle and live with you in Australia. As mentioned before, there are seven distinguished parent visa subclasses that you can apply for your parents for them to join you in Australia. However, this can turn out to be extremely daunting task since there is a lot of paperwork involved. Also, the chances of visa refusal can increase if you are not able to provide the correct paperwork.

Adelaide is the capital city of the state of South Australia and is one of the best cities of the continent to live and working. Recently, the city was listed in the most livable cities of the world due to its moderate weather and lower cost of living. Since 2012, the city has been scoring high for its affordability of living in the world and takes pride in being one of the multicultural cities that offers inexpensive food, lower interest rates and moderate real estate prices. Fortunately, it is easier to migrate to Australia and settle down in Adelaide since its categorised as regional Australia.
Adelaide enjoys typical Mediterranean climate and that helps in exploring the outdoors without much hassle. Also, the summers are long followed by a shorter span of a milder winter experiencing lesser than average rainfall. The city can be visited at any part of the year and is an authentic all-season tourist retreat.
From a tourism perspective, Adelaide has to a lot to offer for children of all ages. Once you land in the city to settle down or as a tourist, you’ll have plenty to do and visit in and around the city. From exotic cuisines and home drawn wine to exotic wildlife parks and calm strolls along beautiful North Terrace, the city has a lot to offer. The outskirts of Adelaide have several daytrip options such as Kangaroo Islands and Barossa.
Here are some of the top exciting things you can do in Adelaide:
Taste multicultural fusion cuisines at the Adelaide Central Market:
The Adelaide Central Market should be your first stop when in the city. The market boasts of a rich history and has been serving the residents and tourists since 1896! There are more than 70 food mongers selling from exotic and delicious seafood to kebabs and sweet delicacies; you will be tentalized by the taste and the buzz of the market will add flavour. You can also try some of the smelly cheese soup, freshly squeezed juices and very authentic sushi in the market. It is advised to plan your visit ahead as the market is not operational on Sundays and Mondays.
The Adelaide Oval
The Adelaide Oval is one of the prime sports and entertainment venues in the city. The Stadium is located very near to the Adelaide city centre and hosts several national and international sporting events throughout the year. The stadium has turned into an icon for the cricket and Australian Football fans who turn up here just to get a selfie with this stadium’s iconic building in the backdrop. The stadium also hosts dedicated food courts and sports related merchandizing shops. There’s a free museum dedicated to Australia’s best cricketer ever – Sir Donald Bradman – which is a treat for all the cricket fans. The museum displays the evolution of the game of cricket in the shape of wall art.
The Adelaide Zoo
The Adelaide zoo is not your ordinary around the corner place with caged animals. It is a place far beyond what you can imagine. Australia is called land of the plenty because most of the Australian wildlife is unique and there are species being discovered every other day from the Aussie wilderness. From Red Kangaroos to lazy Koalas and the Tasmanian devils, you’ll come across animal species that are unique to Australia. Also, don’t forget to watch the different types of Australian snakes that shimmer and standout due to their uniquely distinctive shapes. All the cages have been made to match the natural habitat of the residing animals. The zoo allows sleep overs against a fee and allows feeding the animals (Please check with the zookeepers for the authorized diets that are available on spot before attempting to feed any animal).
Adelaide Botanic Gardens
Adelaide has a lot to offer for nature lovers. The Adelaide Botanic Gardens are located right next to the Adelaide Zoo and you can visit both sites together. The Botanic gardens are huge and offer the visitors eight vast gardens, a full-fledge wet-land and an in-house forest. All this is spread over massive 124 acres of land. The Adelaide Botanic Gardens also hosts a bicentennial conservatory and a dedicated museum showcasing the concept of economic Botany. There’s a section in the gardens that showcases the plants with healing properties alongside an area dedicated for children to learn about plants, fruits and herbs. The vast grounds of these gardens are open for family picnics and it is suggested to bring your food basket and assorted accessories along to have a good family time.
The Waterfall Gully is in the Adelaide Cleland Conservation park and is a very popular tourist destination. The main attraction for Adelaide’s tourists and residents alike is this amazing waterfall along with the 3-mile-long hike trail that ends at the Mount Lofty Summit path. The place offers a complete family day out and has everything that can make you and your family enjoy your time together. The gushing water from the waterfalls gleams like gold when sunlight reflects on it. This is perhaps one of the most scenic locations in the whole of Adelaide. Also, if you are planning to hike the track, then don’t forget your cell phone or camera. There are chances that you may spot Red Kangaroos and Koalas along the way.
These are the 5 must-do things in Adelaide. Of course, Adelaide has a lot more to offer for everyone, but nature lovers and adventure seekers love it more because of countless opportunities available.
