The Walsh Bay Sculpture Walk 2020 being installed along the Walsh Bay Wharves and Precinct.

There are substantial EOFY Savings to be made on Sculpture Purchases made before June 30, 2020
There is an ideal time to purchase fine sculpture with an incredible opportunity to save via the Government’s Instant Asset Write off.

The Government is backing businesses to invest to help the economy withstand and recover from the economic impact of Coronavirus. The two business investment measures in this package are designed to assist Australian businesses and economic growth in the short-term and encourage a stronger economic recovery following the Coronavirus outbreak.

In summary, The Government is increasing the instant asset write-off (IAWO) threshold from $30,000 to $150,000 and expanding access to include all businesses with an aggregated annual turnover of less than $500 million (up from $50 million) until 30 June 2020.
This means that Artwork purchases for the office are immediately deductible (subject to your personal criteria meeting the government guidelines).

NOW is the time to Support Australian Sculptors whilst making a considerable saving on artwork to enhance the quality of your own immediate surroundings.

Consider the Walsh Bay Sculpture Walk 2020
Artworks can be purchased and delivered before the 30th June and Invoiced in accordance with the government guidelines in order to qualify for the incentive.
*Please verify your own circumstances and eligibility with qualified taxation professionals

More Pieces To Come in the Coming Weeks

Please find attached our latest Barangaroo Station monthly update, which provides information about upcoming construction activities in June 2020. 

Key activities to note this month include:
  • removing underground pipes and jack-hammering concrete laydown areas by the Barangaroo foreshore (respite periods will be applied during high impact noise work)
  • about one week of jack-hammering to remove concrete in the underground crossover cavern (7am - 10pm Monday to Sundays)
  • construction of the station perimeter walls
  • out-of-hours concrete deliveries and pours inside the station.

Out-of-hours work next week
Work will continue 24/7 next week to install waterproof lining and pour concrete in the underground crossover cavern and Barangaroo Station. Work will involve the use of hand tools, concrete trucks, elevated working platforms, pumps and cranes. This work is not expected to cause high noise at nearby properties.
