Business Structures

Why engage Sheehan & Co to provide advice on the right business structure for your rural enterprise?

Rural law requires specialist expertise and an intimate knowledge that comes from experience in identifying and addressing the specific issues of a primary producer. In particular, primary producers and their families face unique decisions on how to manage their rural property, business structures and taxation.

It is important to ask yourself: is my business structured to optimise opportunities and to minimise risk, particularly if I am conducting a business that is high risk in nature?

Sheehan & Co have the necessary skills and experience to provide you with advice on the most appropriate business structure to ensure you are able to focus on what you do best: running your rural (or other commercial) enterprise.

It is important that you have the right advisors. Sheehan & Co have an extensive network and good working relationships with some of the best professionals in Australia and will help point you in the right direction.

Our aim is to develop long-term relationships with our clients based on personal interactions ensuring open communication and a thorough understanding of your needs. We work together with your accountant/financial advisor in order to achieve the best possible outcome for you. We, of course, are unable to provide you with taxation or financial advice - you must rely upon the accountant/financial advisor in this regard.
