Getting Started

Choosing the right structure

Should you be a sole trader, partnership, company or trust? Or a combination of these? Setting up the right business structure is vital. Getting it right from the start will ensure your asset protection and make sure that adequate separation is maintained as you establish your new business.

The right business structure will take into account:

  • access to capital
  • investment
  • R&D concessions
  • cashflow flexibility
  • future growth

We can help you to discover the best structure and will work with you or your legal team to implement that structure.

We can help you with:

  • Company and Trust Setup
  • Registration for an ABN and TFN
  • Registration for required taxes, i.e. GST, FBT, PAYG Withholding and so forth
  • Tax minimisation
  • Shareholder, unit-holder, or partnership agreements
  • Business plans
  • Cashflow forecasting
  • Setting up accounting systems

If you’re considering buying an established business, we can carry out:

  • Due diligence
  • Business plans
  • Valuation
  • Negotiation

You’re in business, now what?

Financial awareness coaching

Once you’ve set up your business and things get underway, you’ll reach the point where you need a little extra help from someone else. Someone who can help you make strategic decisions and work out what’s working and what’s not.

We’ll help you to understand your business better. We’ll help you manage your cashflow and really get to grips with the numbers. Good management decisions rely on a sound understanding of the financial implications for your business. So we’ll teach you how to use your numbers to make good management decisions.

Working with us as your Financial Coach, means we’ll meet every two months. In these meetings, we’ll discuss your financial results, teach you how to produce you own financial reports and help you to interpret and customise them. Think of it as an investment in you.

At the end of the session, you’ll have a clear, concise one page Business Plan. We’ll also have a 90 Day Action Plan to help address immediate and critical issues along the way.
