Client Background
We are for business owners, the ones who had a dream...
Luke and Kate, driven by their passion for the fitness industry, embarked on a journey to take control of their destiny and become business owners. They invested in a rapidly growing franchise and quickly found themselves expanding into multiple territories. Their fast-paced growth presented challenges related to cash flow management, compliance, and tax planning.
The Challenge
Don’t settle for anything less than achieving that dream
As Luke and Kate's fitness empire expanded, they faced several significant challenges:
  • Cash Flow Management: Scaling their business required substantial investments in gym equipment and facilities. Effective cash flow management was paramount.
  • Accurate Bookkeeping: They needed precise and timely bookkeeping and financial data to ensure compliance and make informed business decisions.
  • Tax Planning: Being on the front foot with the Australian Taxation Office (ATO) was crucial. They wanted to know what taxes were upcoming and budget accordingly.
  • Exit Strategy: Eventually, when the time came to sell their businesses and move closer to their families, they needed to minimize the tax implications.
