The simple act of obtaining Trade References or asking for a prospective client’s name, phone number or email address can now expose businesses to massive penalties.
Terms and Conditions
Terms and conditions or Terms of Trade are the cornerstone protecting a business and it’s cash-flow. They set the rules by which a business extends credit to its clients. They are particular to than individual business covering the areas of risk for that business. They allow a business to Mark a Debts Credit File, on-charge any collection costs, enable the business to become a secured creditor with the same protection as the banks, and outlines the businesses dispute resolution policy.
Subcontract / Independent Agreements
With the recent introduction of TPAR or Taxable Payment Annual Report, all businesses who engage Subcontractors or Independent Contractors are required by law to submit an annual record of all payments to the Australian Taxation Office. These reports are used to identify businesses who haven’t met their tax liabilities and could put the head contractor in a precarious position, if the ATO decides that the subcontractor or independent contractor are employees. A formal legally binding Subcontractor / Independent Contractor agreement formalises the relationship limiting the risk to a business.
Chattel Leases are now an essential part of the standard structure of any businesses who has traditionally used a Trust or Holding Company to protect their assets. Due to the introduction of the PPSA Legislation a Trust or Holding company no longer protects the assets of a business without a PPSA Registration. By using a Chattel Lease which incorporates the appropriate PPSA Legislation a business can now register their Lease Agreement on the PPSA Register thereby securing their ownership and title of their assets. Without a Chattel Lease a business will more than likely lose any assets previous protected by their Trust arrangement.
HR Management Packages
With the constant changes in legislation and the endless opportunities for employees to seek assistance in what they deem to be Unfair Termination or Dismissal, employers are under ever increasing scrutiny to prove their innocence and limit their liability. By having a structured templated system which starts from writing a Job Description, through to Interviewing Techniques and performing Performance Reviews, right through to ultimately Terminating an Employee and Conducting Exit Interviews, a business can ensure they stay between the guideline negating the possibility of potential litigation.

Due to Legislation and conditions each type of Employee requires a separate type of Employment Agreement.

Business Owner Loan Registrations
Business Owner Loan Agreements are designed to formalise any loan agreement between Shareholders, Directors, Investors or Partners to a business. The Loan Agreements formalise the relationship and can set out repayments and any applicable interest associated with the Loan Agreement. A major aspect of the Loan Agreements is the ability to register the loans on the PPSA making the lender a secured creditor over the business they are funding providing a level of security not previously available. This is especially important when dealing with the ATO if the business is going to claim the TAX benefits associated with the loan or the interest paid on the loan.
