Business Services

What ever stage you are in your business, whether it is at start-up, or established we will provide you with knowledge and support with the correct business structure that best suits you and your goals.

There are four main business structures commonly used by small businesses in Australia and we can help you 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, providing 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:

Self-Managed Superannuation Fund

Self-Managed Superannuation Funds (SMSFs) offer an alternative strategy option for many individuals, families and small business owners to build tax effective wealth and protect assets over time. SMSFs are becoming popular for those who are ready to take control of their own super investments as they give you ultimate control and flexibility to manage your retirement benefits.

It must be noted though, that you will have increased responsibilities as a trustee of the fund. As a SMSF Trustee, you need to keep up to date with all required SMSF regulations and be aware of changes occurring in financial markets.

We can work with you to understand your personal financial situation and decide whether a SMSF structure is appropriate for you. We will also help you to invest your assets in the most effective way to maximise your retirement benefits, whilst complying with your fund’s investment strategy.

It is generally agreed that there are a number of benefits of an SMSF, but it is important that you also understand that an SMSF may not suit your situation. Outlined below are some of the reasons why a SMSF needs to be considered carefully before establishment:

Benefits:

Disadvantages:

Running and managing a SMSF may not be suitable to everyone. Many of the advantages are also a disadvantage:

Should you wish to consider establishing a SMSF then we can help with:

Software Resellers

More small to medium-sized businesses are moving to cloud accounting and using cloud based applications for their bookkeeping and accounting needs through desktop and mobile apps. All businesses need to keep track of their accounts, and cloud accounting allows businesses to make invoicing and cashflow management decisions based on more up to date information. It also provides for other business efficiencies including payroll for off premises workers. The cloud revolution is propelled by fast, reliable internet, cheaper servers and widely-used open-standards for interchanging data and instructions between software. Moving to the cloud does not increase data risk if good password policies and back-up strategies are in place. Businesses should ensure staff understand modern security risks and complete training when moving to cloud accounting or using any service that provides remote access.

Contact us to discuss your circumstances so we can help determine the most appropriate solution for you based on functionality, ease of use and cost.

The main cloud accounting players in Australia are:

Reckon logo

Reckon – Intuit (the global company) created QuickBooks software and Reckon (the Australian company) now continues to provide this cloud-based accounting software in a variety of formats including desktop, hosted and online cloud versions.

QuickBooks logo

Quickbooks Online – Provides a cloud based version of their previous product, QuickBooks.

Finance

Are You Confused By The Multitude of Mortgage Choices?

The word mortgage come from a French word ‘mort’ meaning ‘death’ and ‘gage’ meaning ‘pledge or agreement’ so ‘agreement till death’. For most of us mortgages are a necessary debt which we seem a life time to pay. The cost of owning a house for most Australians steals away their dream for a good retirement. Unfortunately most of us are married to our mortgages and have no solution as to how to pay it off faster.

We have been conditioned to focus on the interest rate rather than being educated on how to pay less in interest. A good broker is one who is proactive and can tell you how much can on ‘leverage’ to maximise your current position. Unfortunately with mortgages, there is no one size fit all.

The Finance Right Now team is dedicated to find you the best solution. We pride ourselves on our industry knowledge as we ourselves have mortgages, investments and can advise you with personal experience. Our experience ranges from residential mortgages to chattel lending and our team is confident that we will find you a solution for you. Unlike most business we are not jack of all trade as we engage other independent mortgage broker to keep up with industry knowledge and product range.
