Years Experience

A business structure tailored specifically to suit your needs

It is very important to receive professional advice in order to choose an appropriate structure prior to commencing a business or acquiring an investment. In particular, this is because there are often substantial capital gains tax, stamp duty, and advisory costs involved in restructuring to a more appropriate or necessary structure.

Having the right business structure in place is important as it can affect:

  • How much tax you pay;
  • Your responsibilities as a business owner;
  • Your potential personal liability;
  • Your asset protection; and
  • Ongoing reporting requirements and costs
