Business Protection

How you're structured can make a big difference not only to the amount of tax you have to pay, but also the risk that you’re exposed to. The wrong structure will not only result in an unnecessary tax bill, but could be putting you at risk!

Focus on Core Business

The most common business structures in Austalia are Sole Traders, Partnerships, Companies, and Trusts. Each structure has its advantages and disadvantages, and each structure has its own rules around tax. There are things to understand before you consider changing from one structure to another, as this could lead to surprise tax bills if you’re not informed.

It’s important that you get the right advice, and sadly, the advice can be inconsistent.

Partner with an accountant that specialises in tax effective business structuring. At HY Accounting, business restructuring is our speciality and something we’re performing for clients on a weekly basis.

In one case, a restructure from sole trader to company resulted in an overall tax saving of 30% year on year in conjunction with our proactive tax planning and optimisation approach.

In another case, our business restructure advice gave our client the ability to purchase a commercial property to act as their HQ, whilst also receiving immediate and ongoing tax benefits.

We’re committed to ensuring that our knowledge is up to date with tax law to make sure that the advice we provide is correct and current.

We wouldn’t tell you anything that we wouldn’t do ourselves or for our own family, because we have seen first hand the mess that can be created if your accountant gets business restructuring wrong.

How Can an Accountant Protect Your Business?

Choosing the right accountant can have a life-changing impact on your wealth and business. How you’re structured can significantly impact your tax affairs and can leave a lasting impact on your family.

Which is why you want to partner with an accountant who understands the complexity of the proper structure when protecting your business.

Your accountant will make sure that your business is protected in the most tax effective way and allow for an easy transfer of wealth from one generation to the next.

Peace of Mind

Life is unpredictable, and business even more so. Protecting your business and assets against unforeseen events keeps you shielded from economic downturns and legal disputes.

Protect Your Legacy

The decisions we make today leave an impact on our family. We work hard in our businesses to build something that will one day make an impact on the family we leave behind. Protection ensures that your hard-earned legacy is passed on intact to future generations.

Build Confidence

Confidence comes from knowing that you’ve got the basics covered. A secure foundation cultivates trust, which showcases your commitment to longevity, which can ultimately lead to better opportunities.

Mitigate Risk

We live in a world filled with risk. A proactive business and asset protection plan removes risk. Insulate yourself, your business and your assets from undue financial vulnerability.

Fuel Growth

With your assets and business protected, you’re free to explore innovative strategies to grow your war chest and seize growth opportunities.

Our Process

Our team consists of experienced financial problem solvers, making them the ideal partner to encourage and support you in your journey. We take the time to understand your business and your financial goals because we want to see you grow and prosper.

We are also incredibly multi-disciplined. We have Chief Financial Officer (CFO) training and experienced, qualified accountants all over the world, and training in Natural Language Processing (NLP).

Initial Conversation

We conduct an initial conversation with you. We ask questions to better understand you, your business, and the pain points that you are experiencing.

Formal Meeting

We have a formal meeting with you once you’re comfortable with us and perform an audit of your current financial practices and position by looking at profits and losses, balance sheets, and financial projections. We ask about any insights you may have on your cash flow.

Designing a Solution

We create a workable solution based on our review and walk you through our proposal so you understand what you’re investing in.

Achieve Your Goals

We help you achieve your goals by creating the space for growth. When you’re not stressed about your accounting, you have more time to focus on growing your business.


We also provide tax planning and tax advisory to support your cash flow. And we pay close attention to how tax law constantly changes (though we know this isn’t the case for most business owners), so we’re excited to help you optimise your tax position and provide you the tax relief you deserve.

Our Process

The journey to work with us starts by reaching out.

Whether you email, call, send us a message, somebody in our team will get back to you promptly. The best part is, all of our conversations are FREE unless we advise you otherwise.

01The Power Chat

This short and sharp conversation is for us to get to know you more. We’ll ask some questions and give you some initial feedback based on your responses.

From there, we’ll determine whether you’re a good fit.


I love homework (said nobody ever).

Don’t worry, our homework is simple. We may give you more questions to answer to help us better understand your goals, but the main form of homework is just giving us access to your software, so we can take a look.

03Confidence-Building Consult

After we’ve reviewed your numbers and data, our next step is to provide you with our feedback and give you immediate strategies on what could be improved.

This is also the opportunity for you to see the quality of your existing accounting. 9 times out of 10 people are shocked with the story their numbers are telling them because they haven’t had proper accounting completed.

04Design a Solution

No client is the same, and each solution is tailored to your business and needs.


Once your proposal is accepted (all electronic), we’ll start the onboarding process. You don’t have to notify your existing accountant if you don’t want to. We’ll take care of the process for you, making it easy!

We’ll invite you to attend our onboarding meeting, where you’ll get an opportunity to meet with the main people who’ll be supporting you.

06Ongoing Support

We’re never far away. We’re always available to have a chat with, and we do our best to acknowledge you within 48 hours. Because you no longer have to stress about your accounting, you can focus on more important things.

Frequently Asked Questions

To get started, it’s as easy as saying hey!

We’ll get in touch and ask you a few questions to better understand you, and to see whether we’re a good fit. We’re interested in working with those who want to build a long term partnership and not just a tax outcome.

From there, we’ll need access to some data or reports for us to put together our proposal.

Our Proposal meeting is more than ‘here it is, have a think about it and get back to us’. We provide you with a review of the story in your numbers, highlighting anything that needs to be addressed, so whether you work with us or not, you know the true story that your business is telling you.

Our Proposals are all sent for electronic signature, and once accepted you move to our onboarding meeting, where you get to meet the key players in the team who are there to support you.

Once that is done, we get stuck into the work. Operating behind the scenes, but only ever a phone, SMS, Facebook / WhatsApp / Instagram, or email away.

The best part is, depending on how ready you are, we can usually do this process within 2 weeks.

Permission to be blunt — how frequently you hear from us is dictated by how much you’re willing to pay. We’re not trying to be rude about it, but it’s plain and simple. We value our time and our knowledge, and if you want smart advice, you’ve got to have skin in the game.

But, we’re always available via phone, SMS, Facebook / WhatsApp / Instagram, or email, and we’re regularly sending out communications and invitations to events.

We’re certain we are, otherwise why would you be on our page reading this right now?

In truth, you don’t until you give us a go. Every new beginning starts with a single step.

But if you need more convincing, we can send you through testimonials and client references.

A few things, really:

  • We’ve scaled our own business, so we know what works.
  • We’ve been in the game for more than 20 years and have some of the sharpest accounting and tax brains you can find.
  • We’ve created our own framework for freedom.
  • We believe in only win/win situations — it’s in our best interest that you succeed.
  • Likewise, we know that you may be looking for an ‘accountant’ but what you really mean is a financial manager.

We’ve got packages from $200/month through to $2000+/month.

It’s hard to say until we start looking into your business, but what we can say is this:

  • You’ll never get a bill from us that you didn’t know about.
  • We don’t charge for phone calls and meetings, so you can ask us questions.
  • We put the power back to you, meaning until you agree to a fee, we won’t start the work.

Of course! Let us know, and we’ll give you a couple clients to speak with.

We’ve worked across multiple industries, and in reality, a business sells time or ‘stuff’ (products).

We understand the differences in both business models because we’ve worked across both business models.

In fact, we’re regularly cross implementing advice, meaning we implement product methodology into service businesses and vice versa, because sometimes the answers require you to think laterally.

We’re a tech-driven firm. Majority of your interaction with us will be via phone, email, zoom/MS Teams.

We’re a Xero Partner, and work predominantly in Xero, but have experience working across Quickbooks and MYOB.

All our lodgements are sent electronically for you to sign, and all the programs we use to run our business are cloud-based, meaning the team can work remotely across the globe (which they do).

For us, work is where the Wi-Fi is.

We work with clients across the country, and when we can, we try to get out there to our clients in different states. But if you’re in Sydney, there’s a good chance we’ll get to catch up for a coffee (or beer).
