SMS Service

We have re-written our SMS module to allow you to create messages that exceed the 160-character limit set by the telecommunication companies.

This will ensure the extended messages required during the COVID-19 period are functional and effective and more importantly ensure that level of communication prior to the patient arriving at the clinic.

Stage One of our integration for Video Consultations was based on finding a solution that many potential patients already used or had access to free of charges. It’s important to provide tools that are free for both the Practice and Public ongoing and then easy to use which includes the elderly.

Stage Two will encompass our next level of integration with our appointment diary with an icon for a fast connection with your patients. We are known for being the easiest to use program in the market and we will work to deliver that again here for you.

Important Information: Instant asset stimulus package for 2020 purchases

All businesses with turnover under $500m will have an opportunity to utilise the instant asset write-off for, at least, some portion of the 2019/20 income year.

The Government Coronavirus Stimulus Package includes a measure where all businesses under the turnover threshold can immediately deduct assets which cost less than $150k.

If you are a business which, up to now, has been unable to take part in the instant asset write-off, the stipulations for claiming the deductions are as that the asset must:

  • be mainly used in the business
  • have been purchased after 12 March 2020, and
  • be installed and first ready for use by 30 June 2020.

All business with less than $50m in turnover already had instant asset write-offs in place. The current $30k limit has been moved to $150k and includes writing off the closing balance of the depreciation pool.
