Can anyone answer some of these questions in relation to what appears an almost certain increase in the GST from 10% to 15% :
1) If the prices of goods/services rises, will not the law of demand hold true and generally, sales will decrease? How will that affect projected revenue raised?
2) If tax payers/families/fixed income recipients/self [...]
First time poster, looked all over this site and can’t find information relating to my situation so I thought I’ll put this post. I’m a first home buyer who just bought an off-the-plan townhouse I want to rent out. My problem is that I want to get both the stamp duty deduction and first home owners [...]
My workplace is losing its canteen, and we’re a bit of a hike from the nearest coffee shop and lunch options. Does anyone know of a food truck or similar that will visit businesses to sell coffees and sandwiches?
We’d like to have someone visit once a day (in the morning) for a few months until [...]
If a cyclist and a driver collide on a pedestrian crossing, who is liable for the repair costs for the car and/or bicycle?
The most recent (January 2014) ACT Road Rules Handbook does not require drivers to give way to cyclists on marked pedestrian crossings. It says, “Motorists must give way to pedestrians on a marked [...]
(First off, I am aware that there have been ACT red arrow rants posted here before, but the most recent post was several years ago.)
As many of you Northsiders are probably already aware, after months of roadworks, the ACT Government has finally finished the signalization of the intersection of Antill St. and Badham St. [...]
We are just about to start renovations on our new home. We need advice for the tradesmen who can do the following. We really want someone who is reliable, knowledgeable and reasonably priced. I’d even be happy with a handyman who would be able to do the lot.
Removal of a small dividing [...]
It’s been a while since there was a pilates post on the site (2009) and I’m sure the pilates scene in Canberra has changed a bit since then. I’m keen to give it a try – ideally at a dedicated studio with well qualified instructors.
Is there anywhere that you recommend trying for a beginner [...]
Does anyone know what has happened to the Kingston Grind cafe? It shut around early September. There was a sign up saying it was closed for renovations. This sign has since been removed. There hasn’t been any activity on their facebook page since the end of June. I’m assuming it has closed / gone [...]
I’m pretty sure that lightweight plastic bags are banned in the ACT. Kippax Woolworths is currently using them, because apparently there is a problem with the supplier. A checkout attendant informed us that it ‘would probably only be for a couple of days’. Is that allowed? Can a shop just put that rule on hold for [...]
Hello Rioters, we have just bought an investment property in the inner north – a two bed unit.
Can anyone recommend a property manager or have any insights into which agencies are good? LJ Hooker seem to have a lot of rental properties. Independent did the sale but they don’t seem to do much rental work in [...]
The people next door have erected a coiled razor wire trap along their side fence. I’m not sure whether it’s to keep kids or roaming cats from entering the yard but it looks rather nasty.
The Environment and Planning Department say it is illegal and to contact the Police and the RSPCA. The Police said that [...]
My son is in year 8 and currently attends Marist College, but because of bullying he wants to change schools. He’s also developed anxiety and depression because of the bullying so I think a co-ed environment might work better for him. We’re considering the local high school, however I’m not sure about the public school [...]
