We love this video.

Angus Ogilvie from Generate Accounting

We love it when we are approached by a new client wanting to set up a business. A lot of these clients ask how to write a winning business plan. As accountants, you'd expect us to talk a lot about all the financial stuff. But it turns out that there are much more important things to include in your plan. We thought we'd share this video to help you think about what an investor really wants to see.

The Team Reporter from Stuff

We want to celebrate the unsung heroes who are keeping our country going through lockdown.

She's been so busy setting up testing centres around the Waikato. and helping them run smoothly that she's barely seen her two teenage daughters.

Do you know a coronavirus lockdown champion who deserves to be recognised? Tell us about them in the comments below.

Small businesses in your community need a hand!

SOS Business

Hi neighbours! SOS Business was set up to help local businesses in your community. It means you can buy gift cards from your favourite cafés, restaurants and service providers and then redeem them when they re-open after lockdown.

You can play a special part helping small businesses stay afloat during this time. Spread the word to your friends and family so that we can help as many local businesses as we can.

Thanks for being a great neighbour by being a lifeline for businesses in your community.
