When it comes to the end of every financial year, I start thinking about what I have claimed in the past and how I can maximise the return resulting in more of my hard-earned finding its way back into MY pockets. For me, it means opening an envelope chock-full of faded receipts and invoices and doing my best to claim Foxtel…no matter what my job description!
Suffice to say I was relieved when I learned that it’s a challenge for many of us to maintain records at the best of times but especially when you’re talking a year’s worth of receipts and invoices. Luckily, the timing of the 2017 Victorian Tourism Conference (VTC17) means that you can have a fresh invoice ready for your accountant and claim the ticket price on your tax! Book, make your arrangements, claim…could not be easier. I don’t often thank the ATO, but am very happy that they allow these professional development costs to be claimed especially given the exciting line-up that we’re building for VTC17.
On that, the newest addition to our star studded speaker list is Noel Saxon from Ultimate Hikes NZ. I’ve had a few chats with Noel and he’s a ripper. Check out his BIO here. Noel will be filling the all-important final slot of the event and I have no doubt will ensure that all delegates leave with a positive and inspired mindset, as well as and understanding of what might just be possible in our parks and nature based tourism sector. I won’t give too much away in this post but it will be a great finishing presentation and you will be able to access more details on the program page shortly.
So to break it down a little VTC17 promises the following;
- an awesome line-up of speakers with fantastic content for all delegates
- amazing networking opportunities
- over a dozen relevant trade display partners for you to meet and engage with, and
- a tax deductible ticket to go along with this awesome professional development opportunity
It’s never been easier to book, or to claim. Have a chat to your accountant*, lock it in before June 30, and REGISTER NOW.
