Between fields of rice paddies and temples, the Club Med Bali Resort is a sanctuary for families and friends on the shores of Nusa Dua. With masses of space to unwind, contemporary design inspired by local culture, an adults-only Zen Pool overlooking a lush field of palm trees, a holiday to Club Med Bali rejuvenates body and spirit.

There are so many things to do at the resort from visiting the floating restaurant with delectable al fresco dining, exploring the nearby temples or be pampered in the Spa by MANDARA. Plus, embrace the spirt of local culture with Balinese cooking lessons and evening shows. Club Med Bali holidays have never been so blissful!

Little ones are well catered for and can fly on the trapeze or play about in the splash pool with new friends in a safe environment.

It is no wonder Bali is one of Australia’s favourite holiday destinations. Towering coconut palms and long, sandy beaches under the warm tropical sun. Tourists love Bali for the rich cultural and spiritual history they can explore, with fragrant foods, temples and traditional festivals which explains the strong tourism numbers in recent years.

Emma Cayeux, spokesperson for Club Med said, “Bookings are strong for different times of year with surfers wanting to catch the best waves between April & October, and chasers of culture booking to attend the Nyepi Festival in March or the Galungan Festival in February” She went on to say, “Bali has something for everyone and our kids club activities make it a truly great all-inclusive family holiday resort.”

Australian Man’s Incredible Solo Charity Ride Through New Zealand

While all focus and attention is on the world’s professional cycling elite during the Tour de France, Australian Cameron Nicholls is completing an equally impressive solo ride on the other side of the planet. From 18 July to 29 July 2017 Cameron will ride the length of New Zealand, from Cape Reinga at the top of the North Island, to Bluff at the very bottom of the South Island, covering 2,417 kilometres in 12 days.

The contrasts to the world’s biggest cycling race couldn’t be more profound: while the professionals will be roasting in the French summer sun, Cameron will be experiencing the worst of New Zealand winter, riding through the mountainous South Island in temperatures as low as -10˚ Celsius.

While the cycling elite are nurtured by their entourage of support vehicles, mechanics, masseurs, doctors and chefs, Cameron will be followed by his wife in a campervan. The average daily distance of Cameron’s ride is 201 kilometres, dwarfing the Tour’s average stage distance of 168 kilometres.

His motivation for this impressive feat is two-fold: “Firstly, I’m just a bit of a cycling fanatic and someone who likes to push myself further than you would think possible. However, what prompted me to do this ride was my 13-year-old Kiwi cousin’s recent diagnosis with Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. The illness really shocked the family and motivated me to do something to raise funds for other kids in my cousin Lachie’s situation”, said Cameron.

As part of the ride, he will be raising funds for CanTeen, a charity for young people living with cancer. He has set up a fundraising page for the ride and hopes to bring in tens of thousands of dollars for the New Zealand and Australian arms of CanTeen. The campaign has been named Ride the Long White Cloud after the Maori name for New Zealand, Aotearoa, meaning the Land of the Long White Cloud.

While Cameron spends eight to ten hours on his bike for 12 days straight, his wife and chief motivator Alice will form the one-person support crew. “The original plan was for my wife and I to enjoy a relaxing holiday away from the kids, but I have well and truly ruined that with this ride. Luckily, my wife is always the first to encourage me to follow through on my crazy ideas, so there wasn’t too much convincing to do”, said Cameron.

Mr Graeme Beardsley, founder and principal of GAB Chartered Accountants said, “We have noticed a trend of business owners and professionals returning from stints overseas and wanting professional advice on setting up trusts on arriving back in New Zealand.” He went on to say, “The legal and taxation issues relating to the setting up of family and trading trusts are complex. We have over 25 years of experience in this field and are well qualified to handle the most complex of cases presented.”

Any individual with assets such as their family home and investments, needs to consider the protection of those assets.  Each person’s situation is unique but GAB Chartered Accountants Kapiti Coast generally recommend a mixture of appropriate insurance cover and a family trust.  The issues and options are discussed with you to ensure you understand what’s involved. They then liaise with your lawyer and other professional advisers to ensure the appropriate structure is put in place.

Trusts can be established for a variety of reasons and there are two major types. Firstly, Trust’s which provide protection for personal assets such as the family home & investments.  These are commonly referred to as “family trusts”. Secondly, Trust’s established to operate a business.  These are commonly referred to as “trading trusts”.

Trusts can provide a high degree of flexibility in managing your investments or business, and can provide a number of tax planning opportunities.  GAB Chartered Accountants insist that correct management is vital if the trust is to operate effectively and avoid attack.
