Restau­rants will ben­e­fit

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Scene Out -

RESTAU­RANT own­ers will ben­e­fit from the Fed­eral Govern­ment’s de­ci­sion to ex­tend its in­stant as­set write-down, ac­cord­ing to Bistro Felix owner Jeremy Cariss.

“As restau­rants, we wear stuff out,” Mr Cariss said.

The Hay Street, Su­bi­aco busi­ness owner said he had re­cently pur­chased new fridges and a lap­top for the restau­rant that would be cov­ered un­der the as­set write­down scheme.

Mr Cariss said the scheme was a good way for the Govern­ment to help small busi­ness rather than of­fer­ing one-off cash pay­ments.

He said it was wel­come news af­ter a tough year in busi­ness.

“We’ve had a tough year be­cause of road­works and no street lights,” he said.

“I’m hope­ful, but not con­fi­dent, we’ll have a bet­ter year but ei­ther way we’ll con­tinue to pro­vide a good ser­vice to peo­ple.”
