Since 1992 Fordham have been providing services to this sector, as well as having leadership positions with the Franchise Council of Australia.
We focus on providing services to franchisors, who are typically private business owners. This can include:
- Valuing the franchise system
- Succession planning
- Assisting the franchisor/business owner in selling their business
- Setting up their business
- Getting the business structure right from both a tax efficiency and asset protection point of view
Once the franchise is set up, we help manage “active” wealth which flows from the business. We also provide ongoing accounting, tax, planning and business advisory services to assist with managing “passive” wealth outside of the business in trusts and superannuation.
Franchisor clients we have worked with include Clark Rubber and Total Tools, along with Brazilian Butterfly and Life Resolutions. These franchise systems reflect various industries and levels of business maturity and all of our clients benefit from the integrated approach we bring with our client services.
