Business Structuring

We understand the most common types of business operating entities namely Sole Trader, Partnership, Company and Trust. Sometimes clients end up with a combination of these entities. Each structure will have advantages and disadvantages. You need to be sure you make an informed decision with respect to the question of: Which operating structure is right for me?

Joseph Hughes Accountants can assist you with the set up of an Optimal Business Structure and can explain the respective implications of your decision. An optimal business structure is an important consideration and should deliver effective protection of assets through isolation of business risks and an efficient tax outcome.

It is recommended you speak with an accountant to get advice about the correct business structure when you start a new business, when buying or selling a business or if you plan to expand.

After you have considered our advice and made a decision to proceed Joseph Hughes Accountants will handle all aspects concerning set up of the business structure. Once the set up process is complete, clients can commence trading i.e. get on with what they do best.
