Business Structuring

There are four main business structures commonly used by businesses in Australia and we can help with them all:

Sole trader: an individual operating as the sole person legally responsible for all aspects of the business.

Partnership: an association of people or entities running a business together, but not as a company. A partnership is relatively inexpensive to set up and operate.

Company: a legal entity that is separate from its shareholders.

Trust: an entity that holds property or income for the benefit of others. Trusts require a formal trust deed that outlines how the trust operates, requires the trustee to undertake formal yearly administrative tasks and if you operate your business as a trust, the trustee is legally responsible for its operations. A trustee of a trust can be a company and provides some asset protection.

It is important to note that you can change your business structure throughout the life of your business.

We can help with the following:

For these reasons, more and more people are attracted to the benefits of managing their own fund. Self managed super is now the largest and fastest growing superannuation segment in Australia. We can assist you in all the compliance activity of these funds including assisting with establishment of the fund and the various registrations required.

Benefits of an SMSF:
