If your business has been affected by the fires there is a CPA Disaster Recovery Toolkit.
Please contact your local CPA.
 
Any business may fall victim to a disaster that may disrupt their business. The disaster may be an event such as fire, flood or earthquake, or a creeping disaster such as drought or disease.
Ideally, businesses would have a continuity plan to  guide them through the initial impact of a disaster and assist business recovery. Unfortunately, experience shows that many businesses do not have a continuity plan or, if they do, it is inadequate. This exacerbates the impact of a disaster, making business recovery much more difficult than it should be.
This publication provides guidance to businesses impacted by a disaster – whether they have a continuity plan or not.
Following a disaster, it is anything but business as usual for you, your employees, customers, possibly your suppliers and the broader community. This guide has been prepared to assist you, as a business owner or manager, to take a considered approach to the many elements of recovery following a disaster.
The information in this guide has been grouped as follows:
1. Immediately following the disaster – Aspects to consider in the first few weeks following a major disaster
2. Steps to recovery – the analysis and evaluation each business should consider within the first few months following a major disaster
3. The recovery plan – Guidance on developing a plan to restart your business
4. Long-term disaster recovery – Additional activities to be undertaken post-disaster to ensure that the business operates more effectively and efficiently
The guide provides checklists and templates to assist in the disaster recovery process for your business as well as further references that can be reviewed if required.
This guide focuses on the business issues CPA Australia believes those affected, directly and indirectly, by a disaster should consider. Where you have difficulties with such issues, we advise you to seek the support and assistance of your accountant, trusted advisers and businesses in your supply chain who have an interest in the success of your recovery. This guide does not focus on the myriad nonbusiness issues that you may face. For those issues, we encourage you to seek the support from appropriate professionals.
