Yes, beautiful branding will get you a long way, but it’s not everything.
That #lifegoals luxury beachfront home may have breathtaking water views, a private heli-pad and a lap pool, but without a strong foundation and some serious upkeep (hello pool boy) is it really as drool-worthy as it appears?

Now, let’s apply this to your business…

You can’t hide behind a pretty logo and hope your mess of spreadsheet won’t matter as long as your website looks profesh

yes, of course it will help you bring in those customers,

but what happens when it comes to quoting, invoicing, expensing and the most dreaded time of all… TAX TIME?!
Will your perfectly pixeled logo have your back then? Probably not.

It’s time to stop relying on your intern and excel, and set things up right (once and for all!)

Your business can only grow as far as its foundation takes it.

Give it a good one. It deserves it.

Finance expert

Julie-Anne Ellem of Catalyst Plus

will step you through exactly how to build the right foundation.

As the Queen of Calculators and Financial Business Coach, she has been helping smart business owners to get their
spreadsheets in order and make the most out of it come tax time for over 20 years.

This workshop will get into the nitty-gritty of:

  • Sole trader, company or partnership set up

    Should you set up a company or partnership with your business partner. If you’re a freelancer, do you set up as a sole trader or a company? We’ll go through the liabilities, tax obligations and reporting requirements for each structure.

  • Super and PAYG

    What are the requirements for yourself and how about when ready to hire. Can you even hire as a sole trader and what are your super and PAYG responsibilities?

  • Taxes

    How can you can control your cash flow and know what sort of tax bill you’re in for so there are no massive surprises. We’ll take you through planning for the end of financial year so you don’t end up in debt with a huge credit card bill.

  • Profit & loss

    We’ll help you understand what your sales numbers really mean and what is actually contributing to your bottom line – and how to make some small tweaks for more profit.

  • Deductions and expenses

    Every second post on Facebook is cheering over the $20,000 instant asset write-off extension, but what does that really mean and how can you make the most of it? We’ll define eligible write-offs (yes, new car we’re looking at you)
