Re-structuring your current business for asset protection

Already have an established business operating as a Sole Trader or single entity and looking to restructure?

The cornerstone to effective business restructuring involves 3 key attributes:

Asset protection and limited liability – this is the ability to protect your accumulated wealth from unsecured creditors in the event of personal insolvency. Further, it allows you to use the Corporation Law statutory provisions to ‘walk-away’ from unsecured creditors if the business becomes unviable.

Tax effectiveness – this is the ability to not only cap the tax rate for corporations but then also to have the ability to stream net income distributions to lower income beneficiaries to maximise your tax positions.

Succession planning – this is the ability to achieve optimum options and minimal capital gains tax implications and transfer duty when the business is transitioned to the next generation or eventually sold (whether externally or a key employee).

To assess these criteria against your current business structure, Contact us today for a review and analysis.
