A Business Approach To Immigration by Paul St. Clair, F.C.A., Dip. Fin. Services People generally have strong views on the subject of immigration. There are those that oppose and those that accept further immigration. Both major political parties support immigration. We are indeed a nation of immigrants including our Indigenous population who arrived here some 40,000 years ago.

It has been suggested such a scheme, fully operational, would raise in excess of $3 billion annually. (190,000 immigrants paying an average fee of $16,000.) On that basis, the Government would profit directly from immigration as compared with the current taxpayer cost in excess of $2 billion annually.

There are a great number of people who would like to immigrate to this great democracy. Many immigrants come from those countries where political and economic problems are rife. The numbers wishing to settle here are greater than the present approved number of 190,000 annually. We accept the free movement of capital and goods and services into this country then why not accept the free movement of labour? Of course, subject to our ability to absorb them on a realistic basis and subject to security, identity and health check requirements. Few would disagree that the waves of post war immigration and the abolition of the White Australia policy has created an even better nation.

Asylum seekers would be included in the scheme which would help to undermine the people smugglers’ ‘business model’. A further element of the asylum seekers scheme for those wishing to jump the ‘queue’ could be a period of work on specific projects, (say, for two years), organised by the Government. The projects may include infrastructure projects such as, turning desert into fertile farming land, building dams, railways, roads etc. This idea is not new. In the 1950s the Chifley Labor Government introduced successfully a work scheme for European Displaced Persons immigrating to Australia.

To compete with and beat the people smugglers’ on the model suggested, will require, on a balanced approach, greater intake numbers. At present the asylum seeker deterrents are not working. We need to think outside the box and have the will to carry it through. As the journalist Brian Toohey said in his recent article in the Australian

Financial Review, “The time may be ripe to adopt a market-based solution to the political obstacles to obtaining more workers from overseas.” It would appear that the flow of immigrants to this country will remain strong for the foreseeable future. Why not take the business approach, confront the problem we have with asylum seekers to the advantage of all concerned? The result may well be a model that other countries with similar problems would adopt.

If you have any questions, please call St Clair partners on (02) 9221 4088.


Most Displaced Persons, in their thousands, worked on ‘The Snowy Mountains Rivers Scheme’, building numerous dams and hydro-electric power stations which we benefit from to this day. The present refugee intake numbers were recently increased by the Government from some 13,000 to 20,000. The Government is considering in the future a further increase to 28,000. These numbers are a positive for business. Two areas of concern to some are that, immigrants are taking Australian jobs and secondly extra pressures are put on traffic congestion, public transport, housing, water, electrical and other infrastructure, especially as the government has refused permission for some immigrant groups to work. Under the present immigration scheme the above concerns have some relevance. With fee paying

The fact is that immigrants/asylum seekers are costing the Australian taxpayers billions of dollars annually. Furthermore, Australian taxpayers have paid trillions of dollars, over time, establishing our infrastructure of ports, roads, power etc, that we now enjoy. The question could be asked, in fairness to Australian taxpayer - should new comers pay a fee in order to settle here and fund new infrastructure? That fee may vary depending on the category of the newcomer. Asylum seekers wishing to jump the so called ‘queue’ would pay a higher fee. The fee need not be paid up-front, but could be deferred and paid from future earnings, in a manner similar to the payment of university fees. A discount for early payment could be part of the package.

immigrants and asylum seekers required to work on projects, this lessens the job and congestion concerns as a result of money and labour flows. The net result, if properly executed, will create a bigger, wealthier, stronger and more meaningful nation. On the other hand as opposition front bencher Malcolm Turnbull said recently, “Anyone who thinks it’s smart to cut immigration is sentencing Australia to poverty.”

What Marriage Can Learn From Franchising By Jason Gehrke well-executed plan come to fruition, rather than the haphazard approach of starryeyed romance.

A more formal process of mutual assessment

Jason Gehrke Franchising is often regarded by the franchise community as a “commercial marriage” – the union of franchisor and franchisee bound in matrimony to each other, and their franchise brand. This is a great analogy and explains many elements of the franchise relationship. For example, there is the courtship period when a potential franchisee considers suitors (franchisors) for their investment dollar. Eventually there is an engagement, which is when the franchisee provides their detailed application in return for the franchisor’s disclosure document and franchise agreement. During this engagement period, the franchisee gets to learn more about their future marital partner, and sometime after the mandatory 14-day engagement period has lapsed, they may choose to go ahead with the marriage and sign the final documents. Thus – and in very simple terms – a franchise marriage is made. So if there are similarities between franchising and marriage, what can one learn from the other? Of the two institutions, franchising has no doubt been the greater beneficiary of this learning exchange. Most people have some knowledge or experience of marriage, either at firsthand or by observing friends and relatives, and can use this frame of reference to help improve their understanding of franchising. But what about the other way around? What can marriage learn from franchising? Here’s a few things to consider:

Love doesn’t always lead to happiness Falling in love sets such high expectations for the future of a relationship that often one or both partners end up disappointed. Going into a franchise means constantly reality-checking that initial rush of illogical attraction, and backing it up with a plan to make a long-term financial success of it. That long-term view brings happiness when the rewards of a well-considered and 6 Australian Business For Sale ®

With the massive volume of information on the internet, even couples dating for the first time will probably Google each other, or check out their respective Facebook pages or Twitter accounts as part of the process of getting to know one another. Once the awkward first date is behind them, they will probably learn about each other from each other, rather than external sources. This isn’t good enough in franchising. Potential franchisees need to talk to other current and former franchises to improve their understanding of the franchise business, and the franchisor’s ability to support and foster their franchisees. This is the romantic equivalent of talking to your fiance’s ex-girlfiends or ex-boyfriends to find out what they’re really like.

Mandatory prior-disclosure before commitment It may not occur to many starry-eyed couples to ask one another if they have ever been to jail, or been sued, or are currently subject to any investigation or litigation. When he/she seems like such a nice person, blunt questions of this nature are sure to offend. Not so in franchising, where franchisors are required by law under the Franchising Code of Conduct to provide around 250 or more specific types of information about themselves according to the pro-forma template in the Code. This mandatory disclosure is unlike anything in real-life marriage. How many brides or grooms have later learned something about their spouse that may have changed their mind about the wedding if only they knew beforehand? Franchisors also expect a high-level of disclosure from their potential franchisee spouses, and usually require them to complete a detailed and formal application process to filter out unsuitable candidates. Imagine how useful such an application would be when interviewing potential spouses!

There is a mandatory cooling-off period Franchising has it all over marriage in this regard. Found out something about your spouse straight after the wedding that would otherwise be a dealbreaker? Too bad you don’t have the seven-day cooling-off

period that franchisees have. If, after signing on the dotted line, they change their mind within seven days, they can exit the relationship without undue cost and hassle. The seven-day mandatory cooling-off period would be a great solution to all those “woke up drunk and married to a stranger in Las Vegas”(or similar location) clichés that sometimes occur in real life.

You make a plan for your future Imagine being asked by your future spouse to prepare a plan for the next five or so years that clearly identifies your objectives, and what you will do to achieve them. Beyond getting hitched, with the expectation that a house and children may eventually follow, most couples don’t put a lot of thought into their plan after marriage. Franchising is different, and generally requires potential franchisees to provide a detailed plan for their future, and then work to the plan.

There’s a time limit Somewhere in the marriage ceremony, there’s the line “till death us do part”. This isn’t a requirement of franchise marriages, where the participants instead sign up for an initial term (which is an average of five years), and if they still like each other at the end of that term, sign up for another.

Polygamy is OK Franchises and franchisors don’t necessarily sign-up for exclusive relationships. Franchisors will have many franchisee “spouses” and franchisees often acquire additional outlets from their franchisors (and sometimes even outlets from other franchisors altogether). Try having that kind of diversity in a real life marriage and see how long your relationship lasts.

Spending is audited In franchising, money paid into a marketing fund is required to be audited, unless more than three quarters of franchisees agree that an audit is not required. Would wives or husbands be so keen to have an equal level of transparency on their spending in a real marriage?

A dispute resolution process If there is a problem in a franchise relationship that can’t be resolved by direct negotiation, there is a dispute resolution process that either party can initiate. This process can ultimately lead to mediation, where both parties come together with an independent mediator. Continues on page 8

The Seven Deadly Sins Of Business Valuation By Tony Arena

Tony Arena 1. PRIDE You think your business is worth a lot of money because you have had it for 15 years. Unfortunately it doesn't matter how long you've run your business. Its the value proposition that you're offering to the buyer that matters. You could have a business that you ran for 20 years and it could be worth nothing or you could have just started up a business and it could be worth millions. Business owners think that because they put 20 years into their business they deserve to be rewarded. No one cares how long you've been in the business 2. GREED You think your business is worth the amount of money you need to retire. The problem is that it does not matter at all to the buyer what you need to retire. The buyer only wants to investigate what future maintainable earnings are there for him or her, or what value there is in the assets. Otherwise your business is worth far less than your expectation. 3. FALLACY Accountants and business owners alike apply the wrong multiple to the wrong profit figure. There are generally accepted ranges of multiples that are applied to particular profit classes. One such multiple, called an EBIT multiple will be smaller than another class called EBITDA for the same business. (Refer to our 8 Australian Business For Sale ®

4. HISTORIA This is the sin of looking to history when looking for the profit figure. History and past events are relevant but are only as a guide. Many people look to the most recent tax return or a three years average as though it was the only profit marker. A buyer is only interested in next year’s profit. Work on that one and leave last year’s as a guide only. 5. EGO Business owners think their business is worth the same to a buyer as it is to them. They think of themselves and not the buyer. The mistake they making here is not taking into account the risk of the transaction. The risk of the transaction can be the risk of losing 10% of the clients or 90% of the clients, depending on the relationship that the business owner has with the clients. There are many other risks of the transaction including loss of key staff, degrading of relationships with key suppliers and other risks inherent in a new boss moving into the Managing Directors office. The key is to take steps to remove the risk from the transaction. 6. HOPE As opposed to Historia, which is obsession with the past, Hope is the opposite. It is empty belief. “I hope my business is going to improve.” “I hope my business will be worth a lot of money.” “I hope someone will buy it” Sorry, it will only improve in profit and value and sell for good money if you make it happen. Optimism is a great way to

live. Hope is just desperation. 7. BLAME Business owners like to blame others for the state of their business. “My business is worth a million dollars and if its not it’s the fault of the government, the economy, my opposition, the internet, Google, interest rates, the high dollar, the low dollar, consumer confidence, business confidence...” anything that lets them off the hook. Blame excuses action. No action means that the business will never grow in value. If You Want To Maximise Your Business Visit:

The mediator helps the parties clarify their issues and desired outcomes, and find common ground to build a mutually satisfactory outcome. With more than 80% of franchise disputes that go to mediation resulting in an agreed outcome, real life marriage could benefit greatly from this process if it became a standard method of settling arguments. If marriage was more like franchising, spouses would be better-informed beforehand, have the ability to change their mind within seven days of getting hitched, be more focused on getting the most out of the relationship in the time available, and be able to resolve their disputes by mediation without anyone throwing crockery at each other. Although these concepts might be somewhat alien to marriage in real life, they work well in franchising.

How To Quickly And Easily Save Time And Multiply Your Profits! By Bob Lyon

Bob Lyon Get out your diary. Pick a day this week and ‘block out’ 3 hours on that day under the title of ‘Creative Emulation’. It doesn’t matter when you choose to block out, just choose. Do it now. Go ahead and do it. Now, fast forward to next week, block out the same time in your diary. Continue to do this for the same time every week…

For The Next 6 Months! I want you to establish a routine. Stop listening now and block out 3 hours of the same day, every week for the next 180 days. Ensure it’s a time of day you will NOT be disturbed. Take the phone off the hook and make it clear to your staff and family you are to be left alone. Have you done that? Good. So why am I asking you to do this? Here’s why: somebody somewhere has the answers to the problems you’re experiencing. Somebody somewhere is doing what you do far better. Spend some time each week searching for this person. There’s no sense recreating the wheel. I’m a big believer in what’s called ‘creative emulation’. Whenever I have a problem I need the solution to, I just look around… see what other people are doing… and keep searching until…

I Find An Answer! You and I are blessed with one of the most wonderful gifts. It’s called the Reticular Activating System (RAS). Located in the brain stem reticular formation, the function of this ancient survival mechanism is to tune out the familiar and make note of the new or important.

the same car as you? Yet previously, you never saw it on the road.

around at their competition and do what they do.

That’s the RAS at work, and you can use it in your business. For 3 hours each week, you set a goal. It may be finding a solution to employees showing up late to their shifts… it may be to improve your ‘satisfaction guarantee’. State the goal in specific terms.

To get an appreciation of this, open your classified ads or yellow pages. When you do you’ll see one big blur of sameness.

It’s not good enough to say, “I want to grow my business”.

The best, profit-generating ideas will NOT come within your industry… they will emanate from…

Be specific… say… “I want a way to improve the response rates of my trade publication display adverts… and I don’t want to have to spend any more money!” That’s a better goal. With that in mind, the RAS has something to look out for. Set aside these three hours each and every week to surf the Internet, read trade publications of your industry… and… that of other industries. Make a habit of keeping your eyes peeled as you go to shopping centres, read books… or… go on holidays. I’m not saying to let it rule your life. Just keep an eye out. Sir Richard Branson is famous for the notebook he carries around with him everywhere. He uses this notebook to catch new ideas as they flow through him. He may receive feedback from a patron on a flight… or a staff member may suggest an idea. Anything useful that comes to him is immediately jotted down in his notebook. You should do the same. When you find a potential solution to your problem, creatively emulate the solution in your business and see if it works (that is, test it). I’m not saying to outright copy… just adapt it to your own circumstances. If it works, congratulations. If not, keep looking

Where Your Greatest Ideas Will Come From The chances are most businesses in your industry market the same way… be it through referrals, yellow pages, Internet or trade publications.

It’s a data filter. As an example, have you ever purchased a new car… and noticed many people have 10 Australian Business For Sale ®

This is a great example of business owners looking around to see what the pack is doing, and going with the flow.

Industries Outside Of Your Own! Why? This is where innovation comes from. While your competition is copying each other, you’ll be riding the wave… you’ll be on the cutting edge. In fact, YOU WILL BE the cutting edge! By adapting ideas and strategies from different industries you’ll be utilizing the collective intelligence of hundreds… thousands, even millions of people, for your own gain. Please understand successful businesses are successful due to a lengthy process of research and development. They have spent lots of money testing and refining their most successful ideas.

When you creatively emulate their most successful practices… You Benefit From Their Costly Experimentation and Discoveries! Please… do not reinvent the wheel. Look around for solutions. They’re out there somewhere. Just remember, there is no problem that has not already had a solution found for it, no idea that has not had a way to come into reality, no success strategy that has not already been discovered, tried, tested and perfected, that has not been recorded somewhere.

Time For A Change? You May Need It More Than You Think By William de Ora, Author of The Invisible Entrepreneur, The Invisible Partnership and The Invisible Branson

your fears and concerns about change.

There are many reasons for selling a business. Upsizing to a bigger one to increase turnover and profits. Downsizing to a smaller one, possibly to cater to a niche market. Or you may simply want to take on something completely different. Whatever the reason (and there are many more) one thing is certain: you’ll need to be ready for a change. And it could be considerable. For instance, you’ve probably moved away from a scenario where you’ve kept on doing the same thing over and over and, unsurprisingly, getting much the same in a variation of the popular definition of insanity: repeatedly doing the same thing and expecting different results. So for sake of your sanity and the success of your business life, it’s clearly time for a change. And that’s much easier said than done.

Embracing change

It’s time to face that age-old bully, fear, and fight back. Step one: realise that fear is typically a product of bad past experiences (which we always remember better than good ones). Like all bullies, fear is a coward you can beat by fighting back and not letting it ‘own’ you. Above all, don’t let fear let you keep hiding in your trench. Climb on out and don’t let the false ‘evidence’ it presents seem real. It’s not. Any past fears have been and gone.

1. Read something new – be willing to stretch your mind in new directions – learn something new 2. Explore what is possible in your life – what are you passionate about, what are your interests – avoid focusing on what’s not possible

If you’re ready for your business – and your life – to take a new direction, then start playing with the idea of ‘what if?’ I love this quote by Vince Lombardi, a great football coach who said "If you're not making mistakes, you are not trying hard enough." Make this month your month of embracing change and see where it takes you

3. Revisit a failed strategy and ask ‘What could I have done differently to make it work?’ Remember: the one thing you can always count on is

And remember this: when you don’t brush fear aside and embrace change, you are actually going backwards because the rest of the world is rushing ahead. You risk becoming disenchanted, negative and miserable…just plodding away in the same old rut.

How to embrace change • Make change and fear your friends

We encourage our clients to embrace change; to be ready and willing to put on their ‘What if?’ hat and look at what will happen to you when you stick your head out of the comfortable trench you’ve been in so long.

• Trust yourself

Will you be shot at. Or will you be applauded? An intelligent look at your ‘what if?’ options will help you identify problems, discover solutions, create new ideas…all while flushing out

- If you find yourself constantly complaining about something, then this is your trigger that change is required. So listen and act. • Make change fun

Some other strategies for embracing change are:

change. You’ll either make the change or allow the change to happen to you.

- Although fear can keep us from harm, it’s more about knowing how to use ‘your fear’ to serve you and support you in making the changes.

And let’s face it: what keeps us cowering in our trenches, hiding behind barriers is fear. Fear of the unknown. Fear of failure. Fear of success(!). Fear of looking silly. Fear of not getting it right. And the silliest one of all: fear of what others might think.

- By asking yourself ‘what if?’ you can start having fun with change and creating some scenarios that could just work.

Queenslanders Turn Ambition Into Action At The Franchising & Business Opportunities Expo

Anyone who’s ever dreamed of being their own boss, or turning their small business into an empire, will find plenty to inspire them at the Franchising & Business Opportunities Expo which runs at the Brisbane Convention & Exhibition Centre on the weekend of 2021 July. “The Brisbane Franchising & Business Opportunities Expo will give visitors the opportunity to compare and research a diverse range of franchise opportunities with investment levels from under $10,000 to more than $500,000,” says Exhibition Manager Fiona Stacey. According to the Franchising Industry Council, Franchising has been remarkably successful in Australia, with Australia and New Zealand having the world’s highest per capita penetration of franchised systems in the world. The sector is a major contributor to the Australian economy - with 1180 franchise systems achieving $131 billion in annual turnover and earning $300 million each year in export income. There are around 73,000 franchisees which employ more than 400,000 people. In addition the indirect economic impact of franchising has been estimated at almost $4 billion annually. “Franchises dot our 16 Australian Business For Sale ®

“Australia is one of the most heavily franchised countries per capita in the world,” she says. “And maybe that’s because we are also one of the most risk-averse nations globally, which combined with the fact that Aussies really like to be their own boss, makes franchising such a winner.” Jarzabkowska will be sharing her insights as part of the expo’s seminar programme, with free sessions running throughout the two days of the show. The strong lineup of experienced and knowledgeable franchisors, franchisees and service providers includes John O’Brien from Poolwerx, Sarah Cobb from Cariblue, David Lindsay from Salts of the Earth, Grant Garroway from The Franchise Shop and industry consultant Brian Keen. In addition the seminars will include a series of FCA Franchise Success Panels, where successful franchisees and franchisors from different systems will discuss their journeys and reasons behind selecting their chosen businesses. The Franchise Council of Australia will also provide further insight into the franchising industry to help visitors decide whether franchising is right for them. Visitors will also benefit from one-on-one sessions available at the Franchising

Advice Centre, where they can talk to a legal or financial expert about their business ideas for 20 minutes for free. “From purchasing a franchise, to turning a small business into a thriving network, to registering a trademark, to resolving a dispute in a current franchise relationship or understanding how to recruit the right franchisees – the Advice Centre will have highly qualified and experienced consultants and lawyers available throughout the entire Expo” says Suzanne Jarzabkowska. Exhibition Manager Fiona Stacey adds that visitors who decide a traditional franchise operation is not right for them, can still learn about a wide range of other opportunities to earn additional income.

“With the job market getting harder and lifestyles changing many people are looking to start their own business. The market downturn has also created opportunities for smart operators. This show gives people a chance to look at the possibilities. It’s really time to stop dreaming and start doing” she says. The Brisbane Franchising & Business Opportunities Expo is on Saturday 20 July – Sunday 21 July, 10am-5pm, at the Brisbane Convention Exhibition Centre. Entry is $15 at the door or free if you register online before 19 July.

Great One Man Bicycle Hire Business I established this Business 12 years ago in Brisbane in the City Botanic Gardens. “free bikes” were introduced in Brisbane a couple of years ago and trade on a 7 day a week basis was unsustainable. Weekends are still worth doing as “free bikes” don’t include kids models. This business is worth looking at still in Brisbane as a part time operation. Most weekends taking from between $700 and $1000. Also Hotel Concierge will use your contact as visitors are always asking for things to do. Ideal

for relocation as business is being sold without “goodwill”. The operation could return to 7 Days in a chosen “tourist” spot in the Gold Coast, Sunshine Coast or in Sydney. Selling due to retirement (I’m 74) and the business consists of a 2000 Mercedes Sprinter Long Wheel Base van, in god condition one trailer fitted out to carry up to 20 bikes. This trailer is ideal to work from or deliver to Group Bookings and leave on site. 30 bikes of various sizes and 3 tandems. Pre Council “free bikes” figures available to prospective buyers.

Restaurant NSW


Fire In The Belly Fire in the Belly was established by the original owners in June 2004. Purchased in April 2010 by the current owner, the restaurant underwent an extensive renovation/extension, staying in line with the original theme. The seating capacity has been significantly enhanced due to the renovation, to be currently 110 guests. As the business is not located in a tourist dependent trade area, it does not suffer the trading fluctuations that are associated with the tourist-driven areas. Instead, Fire in the Belly enjoys a strong and regular local clientele. A good take-away trade compliments the nightly dine-in clientele. There are 3 separate dining areas within the restaurant. The main timbered floor area features booth style seating, bench seating and a mix of tables and chairs of either two or four seats. The small tiled area serves as a small function area. A large tiled area, which consists of an assorted mix of tables and chairs, serves as a large (and main) function area. The bar area, centre piece of the restaurant, is well equipped and functional. The main attracting feature of the restaurant is the impressive dragon sculpted woodfired pizza oven, which provides the restaurant with a unique and exclusive atmosphere. The commercial kitchen is set out in a galley style with separate prep and service areas. This is an opportunity to purchase an established business that has a proven record of success. Further information and financial details are available for a suitable enquirer.
