Paper – your office – Documents, Flyers, Information

There is much talk of the ‘paperless office’ but in reality it’s just a bit of fiction. Legal documentation, handout flyers and Factsheets, portable manuals, confidential memorandums – the list goes on.

For many businesses, enterprises and service based Government and Semi Government offices, paper is indispensable. It has its purpose. But when finished with, it must be shredded and recycled effectively to both protect business, integrity and proprietary information as well as in doing so ensuring staff health and well being is safeguarded against micro particles and dust in the office environment.

Servico provide a proven and reliable maintenance and repair service for all manner of paper based equipment.

Servico maintain and repair Paper Shredders, Guillotines, Electric Staplers, Binders, Laminators and Paper Folders, and a host of other related equipment.

When business owners contemplate transitioning to complete electronic document management, there is a mistaken belief that this is a fast and affordable process. Not necessarily so. If for the last seven years the business records have been kept partly on paper then the cost of migrating this material to electronic files will be considerable. And some paper processes are just convenient. Agreements, contracts, quotations are all often still delivered on paper.

Visual material for promotion and learning has the added advantage of being a timely encouragement to read the material on the spot. When it’s in your hand and it’s visually enticing you will read it. Brochureware is still very popular. Even downloadable PDFs are often printed for this reason.

The workforce is generally accustomed to paper. It’s a comfortable methodology with employees not being required to learn complex software pathways. It provides a tangible backup to soft copy and online. It’s there when your system is down.

Paper documentation is secure. Whilst employees follow best practices, sensitive information can be kept in its required format, on paper in secure storage. Often legal documents are stored in this fashion. There is no chance of hacking or data theft, no need for encryption.

Using paper and print-outs, colleagues know they have full control of their information and working practices. They also have the security of knowing that they are in possession of physical copies. Removing and expunging material – simply use the shredder! And Servico services a full range of shredders. Top of the line is the Dahle Shredder range, offering security rated shredders and a completely clean operation. Click here for further information.

Office personnel continue to use paper print outs for everyday tasks such as note taking, filling out forms and collating information.

Brainstorming sessions happen with paper. Creative workshops happen with paper. There is a good reason for this. Paper enables being able to generate enthusiasm and the flow of new ideas diagrammatically in a way the small screen can never replicate.

jtlegalpractice.com-img4

It’s not as linear as a word processor and so it’s easy to be creative simply drawing lines and developing associations between ideas as many seminar facilitators will attest.

So with a whiteboard, butcher paper and hand out briefs, the whole room is on the same page – to coin a phrase.

Paper is professional. Electronic Signatures may have gained momentum over the last few years but the overwhelming number of documentation signatures occur with pen meeting paper. It’s simply more professional and a proven way to sign off on key purchases and legal agreements. Most company executives will nominate ‘wet signatures’ as the status quo, the preferred option.

Paper is recyclable. With efficient branded shredders like Dahle, Rexel, Intimus, Fellowes, Ledah, Ideal and Kobra there is no issue. Recycling is socially responsible, sustainable and makes for smart business. A ton of recycled paper saves 3.3 metres of landfill space. More paper is recovered than glass, aluminium and plastic combined.

Ultimately paper bring certainty. Bank Statements, Insurance Policies and similar documents are generally provided on both paper and softcopy, because both the legal community and many customers prefer paper hard copy.

And ‘snail mail’ has made a very interesting comeback. Direct mail, addressed to a named person with a cover letter is more likely to reach an infrequent contact than email these days. Spam filters, Cloud and the like filter out promotional material or send it to Clutter and Junk. Mistaken identity (email) of the sender means the correspondence often ends up not reaching the intended recipient. A well prepared mail out with brochure, cover letter and addressed envelope will reach the recipient and gain their attention.

So its important that your business maintains its binding machines, paper folders, electronic staplers, shredders and whiteboards. Whiteboards are next to where you put the butchers paper in seminars and conferences. Paper – it’s part of the program. And Servico will service your equipment to ensure that each component is professionally prepared and presented.

Printing Works – Digital and Offset

When printing in volume there is no room for equipment breakdowns or failure. Printing in runs of 10,000 to 500,000 units requires a degree of automation most small businesses do not experience.

The key to ensuring that equipment does not fail at a critical point is programmed maintenance on all major equipment. Servico offer annual maintenance programs on most major brands of Guillotines, Paper Folders, Laminators, Binders and Electric Staplers.

In providing regular inspection, maintenance and support your equipment performs to its optimum level. In doing so Servico can ensure that costly breakdowns just simply don’t occur 99% of the time.

abstract-color-paper

Major brands such as Fellowes, Dahle, Ledah and Ideal recognise this and recommend regular scheduled maintenance and testing. As authorised warranty repairers for these brands but also for Rexel, Kobra Shredders and Infostop, we provide a full service and maintenance schedule for all the equipment manufactured and sold by these well-known brands. Beyond the warranty period Servico can advise on a sensible maintenance and inspection program and if replacement is required, our service personnel can recommend suitable equipment for your needs and your budget.

Managing the Risk and Compliance of your School’s Providers of On-site Goods or Services (POGS) and Contractors

SAM4Schools is a secure, online Risk and Compliance Management System that benefits schools and their providers of on-site goods or services (POGS) / contractors.
Our system provides the framework to establish and maintain an up-to-date Compliance Register for every provider of on-site goods or services (POGS) and contractors to a school.  This enables a school to meet its workplace obligations and comply with current legislation, while providing their legal duty of care.

SAM4Schools streamlines compliance and reporting procedures, and greatly assists those responsible for the workplace health and safety of their school, such as:  principals, assistant principals, business managers and leadership team members responsible for budgets, facilities and purchasing.

A school culture that values compliance and governance is the key to delivering trust and integrity. Building and maintaining this culture casts a protective net over your staff and students while satisfying legal requirements.
The school education framework in Australia is undergoing critical change, resulting in increasing pressure for schools to educate students while negotiating constant shifts in legislative, fiscal and economic requirements. Such challenges create greater expectations on your compliance and risk processes to protect your school from harm.
Risks are events, situations or circumstances that may lead to negative consequences for your school. Appropriate risk management strategies can minimise costly and stressful problems, and may also reduce insurance claims and premiums.

It’s Tax Time – Don’t miss the $20,000 TAX BREAK!

At Servico, we can assist you to ensure you are operating at your highest efficiency. Part of this is in selecting and purchasing the right equipment. Fortunately the current $20,000 tax break on equipment purchases is still in place – until June 30th 2017. Now is the time to make that purchase on new equipment – Binders, Shredders, Folders, Guillotines, Staplers, Whiteboards, etc.

To assist you today we provide information on the Federal Government Tax Break and how your business can benefit.

Here is the original ABC Press Report on the Tax Break available – Until June 30th 2017.

$20,000 small business tax break explained

One of the biggest announcements in 2015’s budget was the temporary increase to the instant asset write-off, allowing small businesses to claim back purchases of up to $20,000.

So is this just free money? How can you take advantage of the new scheme?

Take a look at the key points of the $20,000 instant asset write-off.

What is the $20,000 tax break?

Businesses with an annual turnover under $2 million can claim immediate tax deductions for as many sub-$20,000 purchases as they make between 7:30pm on budget night and June 30, 2017, rather than having to claim those purchases as deductions spread over several years.

This was and is a huge increase from the previous instant asset write-off threshold of $1,000.

The Federal Government allocated $1.75 billion to fund the scheme, which will run for the next two years. [Note: It finishes on June 30th 2017!]
Who is eligible?

The $20,000 tax break applies to businesses that can demonstrate ongoing activity via quarterly Business Activity Statements.

The business must be actively trading to be eligible for the break.

What’s covered?

“If you run a cafe, it might be new kitchen equipment, or new tables and chairs,” Mr Hockey said in his budget night speech in 2015.

“If you’re a tradie, it might be new tools or a computer for the home office.”

“Cars and vans, kitchens or machinery … anything under $20,000 is immediately 100 per cent tax deductible from tonight.”

In other words, any asset involved in running a business is covered by the scheme.

What’s not?

Assets over $20,000 are not eligible for the instant tax write-off, but can be fully written off over a longer period.

Any assets over $20,000 can be added together and depreciated at the same rate. These assets are depreciated at 15 per cent in the first income year, and 30 per cent per year thereafter.

If the value of the pool is below $20,000 until the end of June 2017 it can be immediately deducted too.

There are a few items not deductible, including some horticultural plants and any software developed in-house by a business.

Software purchased for business use, for example, an account-keeping program, can be claimed.

Accountants have also warned they expect the ATO to closely monitor the number of Australian Business Number (ABN) applications, to keep an eye on any attempt to rort the scheme.

What else do you get?

In addition to the instant asset write-off, companies with annual turnover of less than $2 million have had their tax rate lowered, from 30 per cent to 28.5 per cent.

This is the lowest small business company tax rate in almost 50 years.

Unincorporated businesses, such as sole traders, partnerships and trusts, will also get a 5 per cent tax discount from July 1 up to $1,000 a year.

What does this mean for you?

“If you currently run or you are thinking of starting a small business, now is the time to act”, according to ABC’s AM program host Michael Brissenden.

“The small business package is extraordinarily generous. If you were ever thinking about opening a cafe, do it now,” Brissenden wrote last night.

“Buy as many espresso makers, fridges, photocopiers and lawn mowers as you like, and claim an immediate tax deduction until 2017.”
