Welcome to the final edition of our newsletter for the year.

This time last year I made a note of wrapping up the decade, 2010 to 2019 to add that I could hardly wait to see what the next decade was to bring.

Well, I have to say what a heck of a start.

2020 has not exactly been the year one would dream about.

I’m sure that not just for us, but for you too, thanks to Covid 19 arriving at the beginning of the year it was an extraordinarily tough start to the year.

Thankfully, after the acute slow-down of business in the early stages of the year there has been a gradual recovery that most businesses other than those reliant on tourism have undergone.

You have to feel sorry for those people who have been reliant on East Coast and international tourists. They have taken a hammering and one would think the full recovery is likely to be quite a way off yet, as the rest of the world is remaining in the throes of the pandemic.

If there has been one good thing to come out of the year for quite a few businesses, it has been the extension to the timeline for the instant asset write off…proposed in the Budget to end 2022.

Another good thing in our part of the world to have come out of 2020 has been the release of the 3rd generation D-Max.

The upgrades to these vehicles have been significant with the result that accolades have come in thick and fast in motoring revues so we’re very confident that once a greater degree of normality returns to everyone’s business activities these are going to prove immensely popular.

In wrapping up the year, may I extend to you, your family and the people in your business, the very best for Christmas and 2021.

May the year bring you good fortune.

Bob Pearce, Managing Director
