Small to Medium Enterprises (SMEs) are one of the major driving forces of the economy. There are over two million SMEs in Australia, employing over 70% of the total workforce. If you are the owner of an SME you are part of the financial backbone of Australia, which brings with it a lot of opportunity that can be capitalised on.
There are many ways that business owners, entrepreneurs and high-net-worth individuals can grow their wealth, but there are many responsibilities to consider. By teaming up with Financial Framework you will have access to the most effective and current financial advice for SMEs. With smart planning, based on quality advice, you will be able to build, manage and grow your business, right up to the day you decide to leave. We'll be there for you every step of the way.
"As business owners, it’s important that we stay in control of our time and income.
We have been clients of Financial Framework for over 3 years now. Not only were they able to assist with the insurance needs of our business, but they also helped us review and improve our own personal insurance and superannuation needs. This really came in handy recently when we both had to make to claim on our insurance. Financial Framework helped to ensure we had a successful outcome. Without their advice the process would have been quite daunting.
We would recommend making the time to visit Financial Framework if you are a business owner OR an employee. If you have a household that relies heavily on one income then I can’t stress this enough."
- Armin Bartel, CEO of Logsys Power Services & Leon Freese , Director of Fabsco Pty Ltd.
The Australian tax system is complex, but with the right advice there are many opportunities for small businesses to take advantage of. Regulation and taxation can be an impediment to SMEs. It is important to know what your rights are, what your tax and compliance obligations are, what small business concessions are available, and what plan you should put in place for superannuation. Your Financial Framework adviser will assist you to reach the best possible tax position.
Most of the business owners who have come to us for help were too busy to give their business' finances the attention they required, which was costing them a lot of money and weakening their tax position. There's no need for you to shoulder the responsibilities of a CFO on top of everything else... Financial Framework provide everything you need to ensure your business' financial health.
We can audit your business to properly outline your key strengths and areas for improvement. We will examine profitability, cash flow and budgeting - supplying you with a business plan that maximises your value, improves your tax position, and allows for growth.
