Lifecycle of a Business: Raising Finance
Published on 18 Jul 2012
| Took place at Wise Lord and Ferguson boardroom, Hobart
The Lifecycle of a Business series identified and discussed key issues during the formation
of a business; its running and its eventual sale. The series offered practical tips to guide participants through some of the fundamental tax and legal issues that need to be considered
in the lifecycle of a business. The sessions reflected upon the differences that can arise when
one of the five more popular business structures are utilised, namely: a sole trader, general partnership, discretionary trust, unit trust and corporation. The raising finance seminar aimed to discuss how finance can be raised (whether debt or equity) relative to these various business forms.
