Spokesman for the Bundaberg Branch of CPA, Colin Stollery, said the breakfast would provide an opportunity to hear insightful commentary.

“Brian Richards will break the Budget into layman’s terms and is well placed to present on this often complex topic,” he said.

“Brian has specialised in providing taxation advice to accounting and legal practitioners in respect of a wide range of business topics for approximately 40 years.

“His particular taxation specialty areas include business restructuring, intellectual property transactions, CGT issues and tax planning matters. As a taxation specialist, Brian has extensive academic and other lecturing experience.”

Mr Stollery said there would be an opportunity to ask questions in a session facilitated by Bundaberg and District Chamber of Commerce president Yale Morgan.

Breakfast attendees will also hear from Kerry Phillips FCPA with a brief overview of CPA Australia.

Helen Swanson from Strategic Projects and Economic Development at Bundaberg Regional Council will provide an insight into economic development opportunities in the region.

Registrations are essential for catering purposes by April 2. The cost, which includes a full-cooked breakfast tea and coffee, is $42 with discounts offered to Chamber of Commerce and CPA Australia paid members.
