    Above Average Cyclone Activity

    THE Bureau of Meteorology predicts that Far North Queensland has a 65 per cent chance of observing above average number of tropical cyclones, where the long-term average is three or four. Tropical cyclone activity in the Australian region (5°S-40°S, 90°E-160°E) is likely to be above average this coming season. The outlook suggests a 80% chance of having more than the long-term average number of cyclones in the Australian region during the 2011-12 season. (For more info about average tropical cyclone activity and La Niña events see info about Tropical cyclone average conditions.) This outlook is based upon the status of the El Niño - Southern Oscillation (ENSO) over the preceding July to September period. During this period in 2011, neutral to borderline La Niña conditions were present. Historically, these conditions have favoured an above average number of cyclones in the Australian region. The outlook favours the following scenarios for the coming season: The whole Australian Region has an 80% chance of having more than the long-term average number of cyclones. The long-term average is twelve. The Western Region has a 65% chance of observing above average number of tropical cyclones, where the long-term average is seven. The North-western Sub-region has a 60% chance of above average number of tropical cyclones. The long-term average is five. The Northern Region has a 60% chance of above average number of tropical cyclones, where the long-term average is two or three cyclones. The Eastern Region has a 65% chance of observing above average number of tropical cyclones, where the long-term average is three or four. Before a tropical cyclone forms it is difficult to predict its exact strength and path, including whether it will make landfall. Along the east and west coasts fewer than half of the cyclones affect the coast, with most staying out to sea. Conversely, along the north coast more than half of the cyclones impact the coast. Tropical cyclones which remain out to sea can still cause storm surges, gales and areas of intense rain over land. During the cyclone season, ensure you are well informed of any warnings from the Bureau of Meteorology and instructions from local Emergency Services authorities.
  2. I have been making iPhone apps since the end of 2009, and Apple requires all Australian developers registering ABN with GST, so I registered at that time, but I know nothing about accounting so I am really confused by the system. After registration, I received some documents from ATO and then I knew I need to lodge something called Business Activity Statement(BAS), the default lodgement period is quarterly, and I can choose to lodge it annually, like I said, I know nothing about accounting, so I called ATO and changed it to annually in order to minimise the times I need to deal with accounting. Later in 2010 I called ATO and confirmed the due date of my BAS is 1st of November, 2010, so I lodged BAS at the end of September, after I filled those fields, it calculated the amount I need to pay, and I paid for it. Then I found on ATO's website: Quarter Due date 1 – July, August and September 28 October 2 – October, November and December 28 February 3 – January, February and March 28 April 4 – April, May and June 28 July Not sure what this is, I also heard from a friend that I need to pay tax every 3 months otherwise I will be penalised, I am not a tax evader but I'm just confused is there anything else apart from BAS that I need to submit and pay? Also, in their online business portal, the status of my first(and only) BAS is discontinued, what does it mean? Does it mean I missed something and they stopped my ABN? And there is no "lodge" button as well. Sincerely hope someone could help me, many thanks!

    Would anyone like to comment or have an opinion on whether this forum is as well visited or as active as it was pre CSL...? Personally I think it's got quite a bit quieter since the new year.

    Kids Activity Clubs?

    We have only recently arrived and with the schools not starting until the end of January we were wondering if there are any activity places / summer school clubs anywhere for the kids. They are already bored after 10 days and whilst we have tried to keep them occupied with the beach, swimming and other entertainment they could do with mixing with other children and doing things that kids do. Any suggestions anyone? We are on the North Gold Coast.
