​ENTITY STRUCTURING

​Structuring your affairs in the right entities can make all the difference when protecting assets, both in your personal and professional lives, but also when trying to pay a minimum amount of tax.
A few available structures in Australia are companies, trusts, super funds, partnerships and sole traders. We help find the right mix for your circumstances.


Legal Engagement
Entity structuring is a huge area of law and is subject to constant change. We operate in the rules as they apply at the time. We would be acting on your instructions to set up a structure. You also give us authority to apply for the registration of an entity on the basis of those instructions.
You would consent and agree that the trustees, appointors, settlors, partners, members and/or officeholders referred to in any application for registration have given permission to be such and shall give the consents and agreements to the company after the company becomes registered. The information provided in any application and in any annexures is true and correct at the time of signing.
