One in five people in the workplace experience some sort of mental health condition. Stress, depression or anxiety can take a toll on your ability to run your business as well as your overall quality of life.
To mark World Mental Health Day on 10th October and National Mental Health week, we encourage you to reflect on your mental wellbeing, and the wellbeing of those around you.
If you find yourself struggling with your mental health and are having difficulties meeting your tax and super commitments, contact us early so we can work with you.
We can help you:
- organise a payment plan
- delay a lodgment or payment
- request priority processing of your tax return refund
- book an after-hours call back
- register for personalised business assistance.
You can call us directly or you can ask someone to speak with us on your behalf.
To find out more about how we can help, and to learn about some of the common warning signs that suggest you should reach out for support, visit our web page or watch our video.
