Garden Plants That Attract Attention From Cops

A couple residing in the village of Winford, close to the Bristol Airport, had an encounter with thugs and cops because of a flowering moss plant in their property. The couple was shocked when their home was invaded by gangsters because they were attracted to the cannabis smell coming from the property.

The gangsters thought that the house is a cannabis factory so they tried to steal some by breaking down the entrance. The couple was terrified and the thugs were disappointed to find out thatthere’s no cannabis but the plant releasing the aroma is Caucasian Crosswort.

Authorities have cautioned homeowners to consult professional landscapers such as Greenside Landscaping to help them identify plants that could be mistaken as illegal by the cops.

This is not the first time that people got into trouble because of innocent plants in their garden. There are a number of plants you should watch out for such as the Phlox subulata. This is a pretty flower that will not only call the attention of cops but robbers as well.

This is based on the experience of Ivor and Margaret Wiltshire when their Kingswood home was invaded by thugs and the cops paid a visit too. They were on vacation when the gang broke down their door and tried looking for the cannabis because of the drug-like aroma released by phlox subulata.

Mugwort plant is second on the list because of its smell which is similar to weed. Despite this, it is planted by many because of its medicinal uses and it also served as a culinary herb for several centuries. It has many applications including food flavouring, insect repellent and beer.

Another plant to look out for is the spider flower or cleome because its aroma is not the only thing similar to cannabis, it looks like cannabis too.

One may think that tomatoes are innocent looking plants but in 2008, cottage owned by a widow was raided because the police though that her tomato plants are cannabis. The owner, Lulu Matheson, was arrested and her house was searched.

With all these reports all because of innocent looking plants, many homeowners are hiring experts in the industry such as Greenside Landscaping to help them identify plants that could get them into trouble with the authority.

How To Save On Projects With Aluminium Alloy 

Aluminium is one of the commonly used materials in various industries. This is the reason why aluminium alloy remains in demand in the market today. If you are working in an industry that largely uses aluminium for its projects, it would be best to look for a supplier where you would constantly purchase the material for faster and more economical transactions. Here are some tips for you to find a credible aluminium source while saving money on the process.

Buy from manufacturers

If you would do a price comparison, you would notice that aluminium prices vary from one supplier to another. To get the material at a lower price, buy direct from a manufacturer instead from a supplier.  Local distributors would naturally add mark-up from the original price to gain profit out of the sales.

Do a price comparison

Before you take the plunge and purchase your needed supplies of aluminium alloy from a manufacturer, make it a point to check from other manufacturers and even from local suppliers to do a price comparison. Visit the websites of different distributors and manufacturers in your area and find out how you can save from them. Check for discount items and promos or you can also check if there are offers such as free shipping because this is how you can save more money.

Ask for cost estimates

You can also save money when buying aluminium products by asking for cost estimates from at least three to five distributors in your area. You can also do this with your other needed project supplies. You can also save money if you would place your ordersina single manufacture. This way, you can negotiate for a lower price.

Buy more items

Another trick to save money on aluminium alloy is to buy higher quantities instead of buying partial number of supplies. When you buy more items, a manufacturer may offer free delivery especially if you expressed that you would be a regular customer. Provide the manufacturer a list of your needed materials then negotiate for discounts from the total amount.

Gather’s claim to fame is its cloud-based conference and events management software which is designed to help businesses and venues across Atlanta, Georgia manage and grow their event programs into new, viable revenue sources via improving sales, and streamlining the workflow, starting from the initial inquiry for the event planning, up to the day-of execution and payments.

According to Gather’s CEO, Nicholas Miller, the company’s formation came due the hospitality industry’s increasing use of technology to streamline operations, with many restaurants and venues taking note of event programs, which he says accounts for around 20% to 30% of revenue, as the most lucrative aspect to optimize.

Prior to this large investment, Gather raised $3 million this year, which was preceded by a $2.5M investment from Storm Ventures and Ludlow Ventures.

Apple Not Fined Even After Tax Audit

Nowadays, many firms and clients are availing of tax audit insurance in order to protect themselves in any scenario. In the case of Apple, a multinational company known as one of the big players in the technology industry, it is not necessary as they were able to survive the tax audit that was carried out by the ATO or Australian Tax Office.

According to Tony King, the local managing director of Apple, they have been given the confirmation by ATO that all of their corporate taxes have been updated regularly. He added that they are only working with ATO alone when it comes to their present and future dealings with taxes.

King was able to answer questions during the Senate committee hearing that was conducted in order to investigate regarding the corporate tax avoidance allegations that were hurled at the company. He said that the extensive tax audit investigation that was conducted by the ATO came to a close in May of 2017.

The ATO was focusing on the transfer pricing pattern, a practice that is sometimes employed in order to move the profits offshore to another country wherein the tax rate is much lower, of the Apple Company.

In the case of Apple, there is a tax adjustment worth $58.3 million that was implemented and the company has already paid for it.

King reassured the public that they are updated when it comes to paying their taxes.

King also said that the latest diverted profits tax law in Australia, or what is often referred to as Google tax, does not have an impact on the company whatsoever.

He shared with the committee that the anti-avoidance legislation is only made to investigate companies that keep records and books of their offshore dealings which is not the same with Apple. He further clarified that the operation of the company in Australia is not affected by the diverted profit tax.

All transactions that have been done by Apple are recorded locally in the country.

They have no reason to take on a tax audit insurance as they are confident that their entire records and books have been perused by the ATO and interview have been conducted with the executive teams of the company to further understand the operations of the company in Australia.
