How to use eWombat?
All you need do is type in one or two keywords related to what you want, click on Go and the options available to you are soon listed.
Of course, a general term like 'gst' will offer far too many listings but if you type in a related topic such as 'cash or accrual', as this is actually what you want, then the list is much more manageable.
Likewise if you want to look up a Tax Ruling from 2007 then simply type 'tr 2007' and go from there. 'Newspapers' brings up a listing, as does 'banks', 'super', etc, etc, etc.
The trick is to take a keyword or two from the question you have, type it into the eWombat window and click on Go.
