My usual Accountant has gone MIA due to Covid, and for a Covid support application for Service NSW
(Ideally an Australian ) and I just need someone to put this on their letterhead. I have all financials (Bank statement for June / July, and Tax Return and BAS for the earlier period).
May or may not need to be Australian based. It does not say they are required to be in Australia. So can be from anywhere.
This is what needs to be filled out. Thanks PAUL
