  • Business Plans, Budgeting and Forecasting

Starting a new business can often feel like taking a giant leap into the unknown. The majority of new businesses that grow and succeed credit their success to the creation of a clear business plan.

Not only will a business plan provide guidance, it outlines risks so that these can be managed and avoided if possible.

rdl Small Business Accountants work with business owners and managers to create business plans with clear and concise budgeting and forecasting, allowing you to put your best foot forward!

  • Business Start-up

Starting a new business can often be overwhelming due to the complex financial and taxation aspects which must be identified and addressed. An rdl Small Business Accountant can provide guidance in areas such as:

  • Identifying and planning the funding of start-up costs
  • Insurance
  • Superannuation
  • Taxation
  • Create a plan for business growth


  • Business Structures

Selecting the most appropriate business structure is a crucial decision when starting a business, as this determines key areas such as decision making, tax, legal obligations and distribution of profits and losses.

In some cases there are more appropriate options than the traditional main three structures (sole trader, partnership, company), such as trusts and incorporated associations. An rdl Small Business Accountant can advise you of which business structure is most appropriate for your circumstances.


  • Bookkeeping Accounting Services

We understand that for most businesses, bookkeeping is an activity which often steals time away from the day-to-day operations of your business.

rdl Small Business Accountants provide a convenient, cost-effective bookkeeping service to take this burden away from you. We provide accurate reporting for taxation and statutory regulations, as well as providing you with a clear insight into the financial performance of your business.

  • Business Valuations

Business valuations are not simply conducted when buying or selling a business. Many of our clients request frequent valuations as their circumstances can easily change due to factors such as:

  • business mergers
  • expansion planning
  • restructuring
  • obtaining finance
  • the addition or exit of a partner
  • retirement planning
  • divorce

The value of a business can differ in the eyes of many people, with elements such as Goodwill often difficult to put a price on.

An independent business valuation can aid negotiations and provide a clear, unbiased value of a business.


  • Asset Protection

If the unfortunate happened and creditors came knocking on your door, would your personal assets be protected? We provide professional advice to enable directors and SME business owners to legally and ethically protect their assets and reduce exposure to risk.

Many unknowingly have assets accumulated in the wrong places or the wrong name – rearranging these assets into separate entities can provide adequate protection.

For many clients, asset protection is not only about looking after them, it is a safeguard for their family and for future generations.


  • Business Succession Planning

Without careful planning, changes in management and leadership can be disruptive to the day to day operations of an organisation.

rdl Business Accountants can help you to identify any possible areas of disturbance and plan ahead to ensure a seamless transition takes place.

  • Mergers and takeovers
  • Management reporting
