Bunions affect 1 in 3 New Zealanders they can lead to pain and discomfort, which affects mobility, balance and quality of life. That’s not to mention the look of them and the difficulty of fitting shoes.

We’ve decided to run a special offer for people with bunions - “Bunion Evaluation” for only $33 (worth $85). Offer valid 12/02/21 - 12/03/21

Many doctors and podiatrists believe that surgery is the only way to fix a bunion. This is not true. Bunion surgery is painful and doesn’t address the underlying cause of a bunion, which is generally the way we walk and stand. Ideally, surgery should be considered as the last treatment option for bunions.

At Corrective Foot Solutions, we use a gentle, hands-on technique to effectively treat and correct bunions – which means there’s no need for surgery or orthotics. We use Foot Mobilisation Therapy to correct the underlying cause of your bunion by working on the misalignments in the foot, as well as strengthening the weakened muscles around the joints.

Pop in and see us at 272 level 3b Parnell Rd, Parnell, Auckland or give us a call on 092129250.

Campbells Bay School pōhutukawa trees saved from the chop after local outcry

Hi neighbours. A grove of pōhutukawa trees that were to be axed to make way for new classrooms have been saved from the chop following local outcry.

The Ministry of Education planned to fell the trees – five pōhutukawa and one Norfolk pine – at Campbells Bay School in Auckland early this year.

The plans prompted parents and local residents to launch a petition calling for the trees to be saved, and instead design a building which preserves them.

But this month, the Ministry of Education has shared new plans for the classroom block.

It will be set back an additional 4.5 metres from the school’s fence on Aberdeen Rd, meaning the six trees will remain, with some limited root reduction and canopy trimming.

Note - Covid 19 $5000 Low Value Asset Write-off Threshold Ends 16th March

Kim from

The 12 month Inland Revenue Covid 19 assistance of being able to expense any asset purchase below $5000 is coming to an end. This option ends on the 16th of March 2021. This was a one-time/year deal.

The 12 month Inland Revenue Covid 19 assistance of being able to expense any asset purchase below $5000 is coming to an end. This option ends on the 16th of March 2021. This was a one-time/year deal.

If you are thinking about buying an asset for your company or sole trader organisation then it may be worth getting your purchase in before this date so that it can be immediately expensed rather than held as an asset and depreciated over a number of years. Thereby reducing this year's income tax.

I.e. New Asset $4500 - claim GST of $586.96, Net Asset Expensed $3913.04 = Reduction of Income Tax at the company rate of 28% =$1095.65

From the 17th of March the new rate of $1000 applies to the low-value asset write-off threshold.

But remember this only works out financially if it was actually an asset that you needed to buy in the coming months. I can't tell you the number of times I have heard of people spending money on things they did not really need in order to reduce their tax. It is a misunderstanding that is all too common.
