Buying a Business

Buying or starting a business should always be seen as one of the major investments of your life; a major investment of your time, money, and lifestyle. Doesn't it make sense to get professional advice to help you;

  • Choose the right business
  • Pay the right price
  • Protect yourself from the major pitfalls
  • Protect your personal assets (e.g. your home)  from business risks.

The major reason why businesses fail, or never pay back to the owner any more than a weekly wage (at a low hourly rate), is a lack of management expertise. Alands can help you:

  • Decide on the most suitable structure for your business - sole trader, partnership, trust or company 
  • Prepare a business plan, cashflow projections, budgets, and trading forecasts 
  • Evaluate if the purchase price is reasonable 
  • Consider GST and income tax issues on purchase 
  • Assess your finance requirements, advise on the best sources of finance, and draw up the necessary proposals 
  • Complete any taxation registration procedures including ABN, GST, and also employer obligations
  • Set up a recording system to help manage your business and for to comply with statutory requirements 
  • Train you in financial management best practice for your business.
