Starting a New Business

There are several types of structures you can choose from to run your business. These include sole trader, partnership, company or trust. Each of these structures has advantages and disadvantages with different legal and taxation consequences. When selecting the right entity for your new business, you should consider what level of asset protection you require and what level of control you require. You should also contemplate tax issues such as capital gains tax, duty and tax on income, drawings and profit. We can provide you with advice about what the most appropriate structure for your business is and assist with the formation and registration process.

Buying or Selling a Business

If you are buying a business, our lawyers in Perth can provide you with a complete service from beginning to end. This includes advising, negotiating and preparing contracts and purchase of land and business, followed by advice on the most appropriate business structure. We can review the potential duty implications of the transaction and undertake all due diligence enquiries necessary. We can attend to the business settlement and register documents at Landgate, Office of State Revenue and on the Personal Property Security Register if required.

Agreements and Contracts

Our commercial lawyers are experienced with drafting a range of commercial documents to assist with the smooth running of your business. From shareholder and partnership agreements, through to confidentiality, hire and franchise agreements, we’ve got you covered. We also draft licences and tender documents, terms and conditions of sale, contracts for supply of goods or services, and retention of title clauses.

Trusts

You may choose a trust through which to run your business, or to hold certain assets for tax benefits and asset protection. We can prepare family discretionary trust deeds, unit trust deeds and amend trust documents depending on your requirements. Our team can also provide advice to trustees and beneficiaries about their duties, obligations and rights. We frequently review trust documents, and we’re easily able to update and amend trust documents accordingly for you. We have experience preparing deeds of variation, removing trustees, appointing new trustees, and vesting or terminating trusts.
