Business Structures

As a consequence of ongoing tax and other law reforms, many business and investment structures utilised in days gone by have become ineffective or inappropriate. Choosing the most appropriate structure is now not just a matter of deciding whether or not to operate as a company.

Our Team provides clients with quality advice in relation to investment and business structures, drawing on expertise from practitioners in the areas of asset protection, taxation, and estate planning & business succession. We are also able to review existing structures to ensure they remain appropriate in light of changes to personal and business circumstances as well as changes to taxation and other laws.

Business Succession

We offer this service in response to the fact that business succession is one of the biggest growth areas in the legal and accounting professions at the moment. The reasons are well known and documented with growing community wealth, baby boomers reaching retirement, small businesses now worth a lot of money (compared to five to ten years ago), blended families (becoming more common) and same-sex couples (becoming more recognised), it all means there is added complexity to the business succession process from every perspective.

We have extensive experience in business succession, with practitioners who understand testamentary trusts and the interaction of structuring for asset protection, superannuation, family trusts and insurance, and who understands all other aspects of effective inter-generation transfer of wealth and businesses.

Call our Business Succession Team on 1800 994 279 or email us.


Business Asset Protection

Asset Protection involves more than simply setting up a company to run your business, or holding assets in the name of a spouse. Asset Protection involves understanding the risks, having systems in place to deal with risk, how your business is structured, and how your assets are owned. Planning and regular review are essential for effective business and personal asset protection.

Our Team can provide you with an initial appraisal to review your current structures, develop a risk profile, and provide you with written advice on appropriate asset protection strategies.

Call our Asset Protection Team on 1800 994 279 or email us.


Debt Recovery

In this precarious global economy, insolvency rates are rising and the risk of customers becoming debtors is all too common. To minimise this risk, you need to ensure that you protect your business's interests by having well-drafted terms of trade, credit and contractual agreements with your customers and by establishing correct systems and documentation to ensure the protection of your security interests.

In the event that you need to chase unpaid invoices from your customers or subcontractors, our Debt Recovery Team can provide you with high quality and cost effective advice and take action to recover your money from debtors.

Call our Debt Recovery Team on 1800 994 279 or email us.


Risk Management

As a business owner, it is inevitable that you will be exposed to risk... the alternative is closing up shop. Having a good understanding of the risks associated with your business and what can be done to minimize those risks, makes good business sense. We recommend all business owners have a risk management plan in place.

Our Team can help you identify risks and options for risk minimisation by way of a Business Risk Assessment Briefing. We recommend the briefing take place at your business premises to allow you to highlight any risks of particular concern to you. This will be followed by a discussion about those risks, the risks we've identified and risk minimisation options. Contact our team to book a briefing at your business.

Call our Risk Management Team on 1800 994 279 or email us.


Workplace Relations & Employment

Our Workplace Relations and Employment Law Team wants to help your business prosper through a motivated and productive workforce. Employees are your most valuable, productive and rewarding asset if managed properly, or a source of much frustration if not.

We will help ensure that you have the right people and performance management practices in place so that you can stay focused on operational priorities and sustaining profitability, rather than dealing with time consuming employee grievances or being distracted by disgruntled or unmotivated employees. An unhappy or uncommitted workforce can be costly and even prohibitive in terms of your business achieving its true potential. This is where our Team can help.

We work with clients with the aim to provide long-term strategies to achieve the best industrial and employment relationships, having regard to workplace culture, commercial outcomes and the need to maintain constructive and beneficial relationships.

Insurance Law

Although some business owners may regard insurance cover as optional, and choose to self-insure for minor risks, insurance is nonetheless a cornerstone of modern commerce.
