Item 8:   Change in Fiscal Year

     On July 20, 2004 the Registrant's Board of Directors approved a change
in the Registrant's fiscal year.  The new fiscal year will end on December 31.

     Recently the Registrant was party to a share exchange with the
shareholders of Cashtech Investment Limited.  Because the Registrant issued
shares equal to 91% of its outstanding capital stock in connection with the
share exchange, Cashtech Investment Limited is now considered the reporting
entity for accounting purposes.  For that reason, the Registrant has changed
its fiscal year to conform with the fiscal year of Cashtech Investment

     The Registrant will not file a report for a transition period as a
result of the change in the Registrant's fiscal year, since there has been no
change in the periods of the Registrant's financial statements.


     Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the
Registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the
undersigned hereunto duly authorized.

                                ADVANCED BATTERY TECHNOLOGIES, INC.
