Over the last couple of months, we have been receiving phone calls and emails regarding new ATO laws/rules that have come into effect on the 1st of November, 2018. This is in regards to schools not being able to buy off people who run their organisation under a ‘Trading Name’. If a creditor has not met the set criteria set out by the ATO, then schools will not be able to claim the GST and schools may potentially have to withhold 47% of the total invoice amount from the creditor.
Extract from ABR website – Trading names are being retired;
‘From November 2018, ABN Lookup will cease displaying all trading names and only display registered business names. If you wish to operate under a different name to your legal/entity name, you will need to register your business name with the Australian Securities and Investment Commission.’
Without a doubt, the new ATO laws/rules DON’T IMPACT any school, within Australia, buying off our organization. Importantly, Schoolfurn has a registered business name with the ATO, but is run as a division of ‘Office Furniture Group Pty Ltd’, with ABN ’57 057 472 330’.
If you have any questions regarding this issue, please feel free to contact us.

‘To furnish the future of Australian schools and businesses’.
Custom Design Fit Out With multiple entrances, doorways and large windows, thoroughfares are often difficult spaces to furnish. Marnebek School presented an interesting challenge to Schoolfurn this month; transforming their Gallery into a social, learning space for students and teachers.
After discussing Marnebek’s needs, we photographed and measured the Gallery. Photos provide important information, particularly if there are any obstructions or access concerns.
By incorporating multi-zone areas our aim was to create an environment that would facilitate collaborative learning, socialization and relaxed lounging;
From floor plan to 3D render – it’s all a part of the Schoolfurn Service!
Working with others is an important life skill. Using furniture such as the Shield and Science Table, students can feel included while working on projects and group activities. We suggest providing varied seating options. Chairs of differing heights, such as Ottoman Rounds and The Beast Stool, help add interests to an interior by breaking up the environment.
Not all learning is done in the classroom, interpersonal skills for example, are developed through experience. By providing social spaces outside of the classroom, students can engage in conversation with peers and teachers in a neutral setting. These spaces are ideal for shy students or those needing one-on-one tutoring. Suited to individuals or small groups, Quad Booths provide comfortable seating while offering relative privacy.
Lounge areas offer a space for students to relax, read or pursue private study. Schoolfurn Ottomans are ideal for such spaces; mobile, lightweight and incredibly comfortable. Students are able to rearrange the seating to best suit their needs. Working from a laptop or tablet is easy with custom coffee tables and Ottoman Round stools.
Whether it be a busy classroom, open plan office or gallery space, Schoolfurn can help bring your ideas to life. By offering custom renders and tailored floorplans, our friendly team can help you create not just a space to learn in, but an interior built to inspire!
On Monday the 18th of June 2018 The schoolfurn team went to St Jude’s Primary school for the first time to give two special individuals there Unknown heroes reward, Luara Johnson (Teacher) and Karlo Al-Jarah (student). Karlo Al-Jarah received a brand new laptop, and Luara Johnson got a $300 hot Spring Voucher, Karlo said “This is the greatest day in my live, Better then my birthday”, and Luara was very thankful for her gift.
Unknown Heroes started as an Idea, To help the community recognize and reward our local heroes. Our vision is to find people, including students, teachers, and administration, that go above and beyond for people in their community, and people that do things out of the goodness of their heart. On that Monday when we the schoolfurn team gave Luara and Karlo there gifts, we had realised that we also were awarded, the gift of giving, to give to the community. So if you know a unknown heroes please go to our unknown heroes link.
