Protecting Yourself & Your Business​

Business Structures

Which do I choose? Sole trader vs company vs trust? If you trade using just an ABN, what risks are you taking? Is the costs of setting up and keeping a company legally compliant worth the extra cost for your business?

Businesses often evolve, you might find that two people working together become a partnership, or at least may expose each other to risk. So how can businesses protect the assets of sole proprietors and partners?

What is the best company structure to protect assets? Fit for purpose structures can be fairly straightforward to set up and manage. You do need to act early, get good advice and to stay compliant.

Protecting Yourself & Your Business

A lot of people don’t distinguish between their business and themselves. And often they take loans against their homes, or are using business assets for personal use and so on.

Too rarely people think about how to protect their home, or keep the kids in a good school when things turn sour.

All too often too, people don’t ask themselves what might happen to their business if they enter a new relationship, or go through a divorce.

Asset protection is a bit about planning ahead, and a bit about thinking through risks and change. How can you avoid being personally liable for business debt? Are you sure your hard work and home are protected?

Trusts & Other Strategies

Liquidators will often find and defeat trusts and other structures set up by non-specialist lawyers and untrustworthy advisors. You can spend a great deal of money getting bad advice – which sometimes can get you into serious trouble.

What is the best trust structure for asset protection? Is a trust the answer? A discussion with an experienced adviser will ensure you have thought through what you are doing to protect your business and home, the costs to set up and maintain something like a trust, and importantly what risks you are taking and why.

Protection from creditors

If you are in a spot of bother, or in dispute, be very careful if someone tells you about how to hide assets from creditors the ‘legal way’. Creditors, liquidators and the regulator will defeat sham deals. Talk restructuring or debt negotiation with a real expert.

If you are thinking about how to protect personal assets from business creditors, how good a job have you done keeping your private family wealth away from risk? Director’s Guarantees can be hard to avoid, but be very careful, some quite minor trade contracts can hold you personally liable for debts.

If you are unsure, or are at real risk, you need to get advice about how you’re exposed to that risk, and what steps you need to take to help protect your family home and assets.
