How does Debtor Finance work and what are the costs?

Debtor finance One of the most stressful aspects of running a contracting business is ensuring your working capital requirements are adequate and your cash-flow is under control. This can be a consequence of having to make payments to contractors on a weekly basis but having your debtors on 30 plus day terms.

8 must haves for Corporate Travel Insurance

With spring well and truly in the air and with thoughts of holidays filling our minds, it is worth taking a moment to consider what protection you have in place if your holiday doesn’t quite go to plan. Recently, I took my young family to Europe and Thailand and after 20 days of relatively trouble and stress free times (bearing in mind my children are three-year-old twins!), an hour before we were due to fly home my son took a tumble and split open his lip.

I believe in being proactive and having an influence. Getting involved in council

Election jitters cool the Kiwi job market

The general election has cooled the New Zealand employment market according to analysis of over 71,000 vacancies advertised on Trade Me Jobs between July and September. Head of Trade Me Jobs Jeremy Wade said the strong double-digit growth in new listings reported over the previous 12 months eased last quarter, and was only up a modest 4.8 per cent year-on-year, and well down on the high of 16 per cent growth in the December 2016 quarter. “Over the past three months, we’ve seen Kiwi employers put their foot on the brakes as election apprehension has rippled throughout the country. Traditionally during an election we see some effect on the employment market, however greater uncertainty around

How you can be hit with Industrial Manslaughter charges

On hire recruitment agencies in Queensland are at risk of facing industrial manslaughter offences under the proposed Work Health and Safety and Other Legislation Amendment Bill 2017. An inquiry following the tragic incident at Dreamworld in QLD last year, where four visitors lost their lives due to an accident on a theme park ride, and Eagle Farm where two construction workers were killed by a falling concrete slab, found that the consequences were not high enough for breaches of Work Health and Safety.
