Corporate Services

One of the most important questions for any business-person or investor, who is planning to embark on a new venture, or is considering restructuring an existing one, is deciding on the most appropriate legal structure.

The key question is how to balance the interests of business owners in:

  • protecting personal assets from from legal risks involved in running the business, as well as protecting the business from the legal risks associated with the owners other activities; and
  • minimising the taxation impact on profit.

There are a number of different combinations of Pty Ltd companies, discretionary or unit trusts, self-managed superannuation funds (SMSF) and other arrangements that might be suitable, depending on the characteristics of the business and the business owners.
