Let’s take a look at how each of these types of businesses came off in the budget.

Fun fact of the day! How many gallons of fresh water does a good-sized iceberg (3,000 x 1,500 x 600 feet) comprise? Approximately 20 billion gallons. If 1 million people each used 10 gallons of water daily, then 20 billion gallons would meet the needs of 1 million people for more than five years.

Coles and Woolworths are also notorious for their penchant to drag out payments and regularly pay up to 90 days late.
