Ensuring that your business structure aligns with your long-term goals and compliance requirements is crucial for sustained success.


HelloLedger’s business structure review services provide comprehensive assessments to help you understand the strengths and potential improvements in your current setup, ensuring it supports your business strategy, tax obligations, and growth prospects.

A business structure review involves evaluating your current business formation—whether it's a sole trader, partnership, company, or trust—to determine if it is the most efficient and effective for your needs.


This assessment considers factors such as tax efficiency, liability protection, administrative burden, and future scalability.

Key Aspects of Business Structure Review

To ensure that your business operates at its maximum potential, it is crucial to regularly assess these key aspects of your business structure for efficiency, compliance, and alignment with strategic goals. This involves:

Assessment of Current Structure

We analyse how your business is currently structured to identify any potential risks or inefficiencies that could be improved.

Tax Efficiency Evaluation

A major focus is ensuring that your structure optimises tax obligations, leveraging available tax concessions and minimising liabilities.

Legal and Compliance Check

Ensuring that your business structure complies with all relevant laws and regulations, including corporate governance, financial reporting, and stakeholder obligations.

Recommendations for Restructuring

If beneficial, we provide tailored recommendations on restructuring, which may involve shifting from one business form to another to better meet your strategic objectives.

Why Review Your Business Structure?

Business needs evolve, and a structure that was once optimal can become less so over time. Reasons to review and possibly adjust your business structure include:

Growth and Expansion

As your business grows, a more complex structure might be needed to handle increased complexity in operations and management.

Tax Considerations

Changes in tax laws or the financial status of your business might make another structure more beneficial.

Risk Management

Adjusting the business structure can better protect personal assets or limit liability as the business scales.

Succession Planning

Ensuring the business structure supports a smooth transition if ownership or management is to change hands.
