Formation of business structures
For many years we have assisted accounting firms establish business structures for their clients.
We frequently assist in preparing documents for specialised business structures and associated agreements such as shareholders’ agreements. We also provide tailor-made client specific deeds for trusts, in addition to document packages for standard situations available for purchase below.

- Partnership Agreements
- Division 7A Agreements (unsecured)
- Private Companies
- Single Family Discretionary Trust (Company Trustee)
- Single Family Discretionary Trust (Human trustee)
To order your selected package
Select the appropriate document package above and complete the order form.
Review by a lawyer
All orders are reviewed by an experienced lawyer. We will contact you to confirm we have received your order and seek further clarification or discuss any issues as required.
A full set of documents are prepared. From the order form we complete a full set of documents required to set up the entity you order.
Our turn-around time – Urgent orders are e-mailed on the day of order if ordered before 3pm. Otherwise, documents will be sent to you by e-mail within 48 hours of receipt of the order.
If the documents need to be stamped, we attend to that for you if you ask us. Otherwise, you will need to do that where applicable.
Storage of documents once signed
We encourage registration of trust deeds in the general register of deeds maintained by the NSW Land Registry Services. This provides a permanent record of the terms, signing and stamping. It is invaluable if the original is ever lost or destroyed.
Otherwise, we do not keep copies of any signed documentation that you may send to us for any reason.
What does it cost?
We will confirm our pricing with you upon receipt of your order.
We update our documents as circumstances and laws change, however, our service does not include responsibility to advise you of changes that may affect you. We welcome feedback from clients. Updates to our documents frequently follow this feedback. We aim for simple but flexible documents. They are all written in language you can read.
We offer free telephone support, within reason. We can’t accept professional responsibility for actions taken on the basis of verbal advice. If something more formal is required, we ask for written instructions to which we make a written reply on a normal time charging basis.
Liability for taxation issues
Liability for the taxation or asset protection issues in respect of the structure is not accepted unless we have been asked to and given you a written advice.
Advice on related issues
We continuously act for clients on the tax and other implications of companies, partnerships and all forms of trusts. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you would like to discuss any aspect of these structures.
