Business structuring & start-ups

Starting your own business is an exciting adventure, but it’s not one to undertake uninformed and doing so runs the risk of it quickly becoming an overwhelming experience!

We often see that new business owners have lacked reliable advice and make decisions about the business structure and overall strategy that turn out to be costly in the long run. By sitting down and formulating a step by step plan with BIR Partners, we can make this experience as easy and worry free as possible and ensure that you have the right structure from day one.

If you are considering starting a new business or buying into an existing one then there’s a lot of information you need to consider. One of the most important decisions is electing which business structure to use. When choosing the most beneficial structure you must consider

  • Long and short terms objectives
  • Inherent risk of the business
  • Taxation & regulatory requirements
  • Access to limited liability provisions
  • Succession planning options

There are various structures to think about when starting your own business or buying into an existing one; including operating as a sole trader, partnership, trust or company.

Each of these structures have different benefits and shortcomings therefore selecting the most suitable structure is crucial. Your individual situation will be different from anyone else so BIR Partners will design a business structure what will best suit your own circumstances and provide the best tax, asset protection, wealth creation and strategic planning outcomes.
