Franchising: Super Size your Business?

Published on 28 Sep 2005 | Took place at Stamford Plaza Adelaide, SA

An increasing number of franchises in different industries and of different sizes are appearing around the country.

In many cases, a franchise can be a mutually beneficial arrangement. It provides the franchisor with the ability to grow its business and goodwill without the need to inject further capital. It provides the franchisee with the ability to access the franchisor's valuable trade name and operating systems. However, there are many issues that should be given serious consideration before franchising a business or purchasing a franchise.

These seminar materials consider the legal, commercial, structuring and taxation issues for both franchisors and franchisees of entering into and running a franchise.
