There are four commonly used business structures in Australia: Sole trader, Partnership, Company and Trust. We recommend that all Business Owners take the time to understand the responsibilities of each structure because the structure you choose can have a big impact on the tax you’re liable to pay, asset protection and costs.

Perhaps you are set up as a Sole trader but now you’re business has blown up, and is growing more quickly than anticipated? Maybe you’re running multiple different businesses under the same entity? or maybe you haven’t considered how your assets would be protected if legal action was to be taken against you… how do you ensure that your assets remain safe?

In this episode, host Reuben Bergola, catches up with Rachel Hunter, Client Manager at New Wave with over 19 years of experience in the industry, to break down the different types of entity structures, and discuss the most common mistakes people make with structures. They run through the steps of choosing a “Risk-Taker” & an “Asset Holder” in your chosen structure, and how to best separate your business risks from your business assets.

As Business Advisors, we want to make sure that your business works for you, not just right now, but in the long run too. If you’re unsure about what structure is best for you, don’t delay in getting in touch with Rachel, Reuben or one of our Business Advisors today.

We’ve all heard of those Financial Planners… the glorified sales people, the ones hungry for commission who charge huge fees and deliver poor quality results… yep, they’ve really made a dent in this industry. Never fear, we’re here today for some REAL TALK around real financial planning. In this week’s episode of Business Uncut, host Reuben Bergola is joined by Wayne Kampen, Director of New Wave Financial Planning.

As a business owner or individual, do you find yourself asking… What are my profits best put towards? How can I diversify my investments (and therefore my risk)? Which investment option/s will give me the best return for my situation? And what about when this situation changes? These are all common questions shared by business owners across the board.

Listen as Wayne and Reuben address these queries, and talk about how you can find yourself a good financial planner, one who helps you establish your goals for life, and provides you with a roadmap to get there. As Wayne says “Just like with any goal or plan, the earlier you start planning that, the better outcome or result you can have.”
