21st Century’s Tax System The tax system in Australia as in other countries, is last century’s tax system. We are in the twenty first century with considerable economic change taking place. The result is that last century’s tax system is struggling. Once again the Federal Government is putting on the agenda so called ‘tax reform’. If the past is any indication the so called ‘tax reform’ is merely either an increase or decrease in tax, or at best, nibbling at small elements of the system. Last century’s tax system has high economic waste and inefficiencies. We have about 125 different taxes in Australia, 10 raise 90 per cent of all revenue. Company tax rates are at the top end of OECD countries and of Asian countries in our region, dragging on our competitiveness. It is time to introduce REAL tax reform to benefit all, raising substantially our already high standard of living. REAL tax reform will mean the eventual dumping of last century’s tax system and in its place a completely different, efficient tax system. The following is The Economic Architectural Summary of the ‘St Clair Tax Reform Model.’ REAL tax reform that will have the eyes and ears of the world glued to these changes. It is up to panels of economists from here and abroad to be the engineers of the system, attending to the detail. The suggested reform model comes in two distinct parts.

by by Paul J St Clair, F.C.A., Dip. Fin. Services

On the flip side an increase in electronic fraud could be expected. Special Federal Government legislation would be required to register all Banks and credit and debit card providers including foreign banks and card providers. This legislation would have particular emphasis on financial risk and security. The current credit and debit cards as we know them, could be combined into one card known as a ‘Money Card’ linked to a ‘Money Card Account’. As with today’s banks and credit card providers commercial arrangements may be entered into under the new system. Under this model all transactions are processed through Banks and Money Card providers who as previously mentioned are strictly registered and controlled. All citizens would have bank and/ or Money Cards to use for all transactions. The general technology for this sort of system exists. At commencement of a cash– less society all cash would be withdrawn through the bank and money card providers and crediting the respective providers accounts of the paper money being converted. A similar system would exist for all tourists to Australia. On arranging travel to Australia tourists would establish bank and/ or money cards either through their travel agency, bank or money card providers converting their foreign currency to cards. Money transactions for exports and imports would utilize a similar system.


PART A THE RECEIPTS BASED TAX SYSTEM. THE CASH FREE ECONOMY which means the end of the cash society worth billions of dollars of uncollected tax. By natural economic progression the use of paper money and coins is dying out. Some banks in Sweden don’t accept paper money and coins. As reported in the Australian Financial Review (24 December 2015), “Bills and coins now represent just 2 per cent of Sweden’s economy, compared with 7.7 per cent in the United States and 10 per cent in the Euro area.” Under the St Clair Tax Reform Model the Federal Government would pass legislation establishing a cash- free economy, thus accelerating the natural process. The result of a cash-free economy would be a saving by the government in producing money including handling costs to the government and business. Other advantages would be easier tracing of drug, taxation avoidance and other criminal activity, including a reduction in burglaries. 6 Australian Business For Sale ®

(1) All 125 taxes would end. (2) Only one tax would exist – a receipts based tax.

money card providers send to the Federal Government. (6) No Tax or other returns would be required from individuals or businesses including companies, trusts and superannuation funds. This massive saving has a direct result of more profits and wealth creation. (7) All workers would receive their gross salary or wage with no deduction of tax (other than the receipts based tax), to spend, save, reduce mortgage or invest as they wish. The gross amount would be subject to the receipts based tax applied by the banks or money card providers. (8) Tax collection would be from the banks and money card providers. This may well be less than 5,000 providers. (9) There would be massive savings for the government and business on dealing with the presently highly complicated tax regime. Everyone would pay their fair share of tax including the multinational companies, the online and Uber style transactions. (10)Tax collection would be considerably simpler with no bad debts for the government. (11)Compensation could be considered for early retirement from the tax office and to firms of tax agents for loss of business, to banks and money card providers for set-up costs and ongoing collection for the government and for pensioners as receipt of pensions would be subject to tax. However the tax in other respects should not penalise pensioners as business and the wealthy would have considerably more transactions, therefore more tax. Furthermore a tax-free threshold would apply to all individuals.

(3) The tax is collected by the banks and money card providers based on a percentage of ALL cash receipts – no exceptions – including transfers from one bank and/ or money card account to another and transferred to the Federal Government immediately it is collected.

On introduction of the receipts based tax would commence a transition period. It would be necessary for outstanding lodgements and collections under the last century’s tax system to continue until all taxpayers have finally completed their tax obligations under that tax regime.

(4) The tax percentage would be low.

As a result the downsizing of the taxation and other tax collection departments would be gradual, probably only through natural attrition.

(5) The tax percentage would be accurately assessed, since it is proposed that the PART B of the change would only be introduced one year (minimum) or three years (maximum) after the PART A has been introduced. This will enable economists to assess the volume of receipts on a daily, weekly, monthly and yearly basis from reports the banks and

Consideration would have to be given to debtors and loan transactions under a receipts based tax system. Where persons or entities are related special enforceable provisions would be required to be Continues on page 8

enacted, the breaking of which would be subject to penalty. In the case of arm’s length debtors and loan transactions little change may be necessary as a result of the recipients desire to have such transactions completed in accordance with the agreed arrangements. The winners of the new tax system would be those taxpayers who have complied with the tax laws. The losers would be those who have cheated the system and/ or carried out their tax obligations in a very aggressive manner.

Under the St Clair model some of the broad benefits would be:1. One tax only – a receipts based tax – all other taxes would cease, saving billions. 2. No tax returns would be required from individuals or entities, saving billions 3. The government would have no bad debts and no collection problems. Tax would be paid on time – immediately as collected. 4. No so called cash society. Saving billions. However bartering between taxpayers to avoid tax may increase, even though this type of transaction would be illegal and subject to penalty. 5. The considerable number of Australians who should lodge tax returns, and those that have tax debts, would now be paying tax under the receipts based tax system. 6. Considerable savings to governments and business would be made as a result a vast reduction in taxation complexity and ending of so much tax law. 7. The so called ‘sacred cow’ of tax, tax exemption of the main residence would be circumvented under a receipts based tax. 8. International transactions 8 Australian Business For Sale ®

which may not attract tax would be subject to tax under the new tax system e.g: a) Internet transactions b) Transfer pricing arrangements and negative gearing. It would be the income that is subject to tax under the suggested model. c) Those individuals who travel relatively often from country to country and avoid paying tax in any country under the old tax system would now be subject to tax. d) In particular those large international companies who earn billions of dollars in Australia and pay little or no tax under the old tax regime, would be subject to tax. e) The new tax model would offer greater ease with less complication in overseas trade transactions. All International Tax Agreements between Australia and other countries would have to be reviewed.

currently exists to a lesser degree. The answer may well be more input by carers. A further increase in pensions in compensation may be the answer. In other respects other members of the community would pay more in tax than pensioners and low income earners based on a greater number of transactions and volume. 6. Transfers of money from one bank account or money card to another would attract the new tax. Believed to be acceptable in order to avoid complication, subject to the tax-free threshold and the low rate of tax. 7. A receipts based tax creates tax pyramiding. This results in the tax rate percentage being considerably lower. All in all the new tax system offers a 21st century tax model, a fairer tax system, lower tax, with a vast reduction in compliance. More money in the hands of individuals and entities to spend, invest and reduce debt as they may desire.

Some of the negatives that may apply to the new tax suggested model:-

Going Forward The government should set up a panel of economists to see if in general the model suggested is feasible. If the report is favourable, the debate should begin in earnest, resulting in a referendum. This is a huge change to Australia’s taxing system, the biggest change in taxing in Australia’s history, thus warranting a referendum for the people to decide. Last Thoughts • No comprehensive tax system is perfect; a balance should be struck between the positives and the negatives. • Last century’s tax system is not the best conclusion. • The Suggested model at the very least, should be investigated.

Giant Steps and Quantum Leaps … How to Save Years of Time and Multiply Your Profits Quickly and Easily! By Bob Lyon

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. It’s a data filter. As an example, have you ever purchased a new car… and noticed many people have the same car as you? Yet previously, you never saw it on the road. 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 10 Australian Business For Sale ®

To get an appreciation of this, open the yellow pages. When you do you’ll see one big blur of sameness. This is a great example of business owners looking around to see what the pack is doing, and going with the flow.

to a lengthy process of research and development. They have spent lots of money testing and refining their most successful ideas.

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!”

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

You Benefit From Their Costly Experimentation and Discoveries!

That’s a better goal. With that in mind, the RAS has something to look out for.

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!

solution to employees showing up late to their shifts… it may be to improve your ‘satisfaction guarantee’. State the goal in specific terms. It’s not good enough to say, “I want to grow my business”.

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.

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

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.

When you creatively emulate their most successful practices…

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. All that knowledge is out there just waiting for you to learn and apply. ab4s1.htm

Mobile Business

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, the Internet or trade publications. Strictly speaking, most businesses are very ‘uncreative’ about the way they seek to expand profits. Often they just look around at their competition and do what they do.

Tips to Buying a Bargain Franchise It’s not often that buying a franchise is described as getting a bargain. Typically, buying a franchise costs more at first than setting-up an independent Jason Gehrke business, but this is usually offset by improved cashflow, faster acheivement of breakeven, more effective marketing, rapid operational deployment and reduced risks to the operator due to the training and support provided by the franchisor. Franchise buyers will generally have a choice of two types of franchise: an existing business that is being sold as a going concern, or a “greenfield” (ie. start-up) which has not yet commenced trading. Depending on a potential franchisee’s willingness to accept a higher level of risk in their business investment, it is possible to occasionally find an undervalued franchise, be it a going concern or a greenfield. Going Concern A going concern outlet in an established network may be sold for a lower price than a greenfield franchise for a variety of reasons, including: Outlet underperformance; The outlet lease or franchise agreement is approaching the end of its term without an option for renewal; If the outlet has ageing equipment, fittings or stock; If the owner is under pressure to sell, particularly within a compressed timeframe. An outlet might underperform for a variety of reasons. It could be in a poor location, the owner may not be managing the business particularly well, the outlet could be presented poorly, it may not offer a complete range of product or services, or any number of other reasons. If you are able to identify the root cause of the underperformance in the business, and are confident that you can overcome those issues, then an underperforming franchise could be an excellent “bargain” for the savvy franchise buyer. Existing franchisees are often excellent candidates to buy underperforming outlet as they have the operational expertise to address the performance issues, and are often capable of taking on an extra outlet close to where they are already trading. 12 Australian Business For Sale ®

End of lease or franchise term A franchise sold toward the end of its lease or franchise term (where no renewal is offered or available) will be worth much less because a buyer will only have the business for the balance of the term available, and consequently will have much less time to earn back the price paid to buy the business. If a business has only one year left on its five-year franchise agreement and retail lease, it is conceivably worth only 20% of the price of a business with a full five-year term available. If you are new to franchising, then buying a business in these circumstances is not recommended unless are prepared to accept the risk that your lease or franchise term will run out before you have made enough money to get a return on your investment. Ageing equipment, fittings, etc A business which has visibly ageing equipment, fixtures, fittings, or aged or depleted stock could potentially be bought under full market value because it needs a level of reinvestment that the current operator cannot afford or is otherwise unwilling to make. An example might be a retail store which is looking old and tired, but which still has a considerable term left on its lease (or which requires a refurbishment as a condition of granting a renewal on its lease). If the existing owner has not set money aside to reinvest in their business their sale price will be reduced accordingly. While a new owner might pick up the business at a lower price, the additional investment required to refurbish the store, upgrade the equipment and fittings, or buy new stock, might bring the total cost of acquiring the business to the same level as buying another at full price. The owner is under pressure to sell A colleague once told me that that to get the best deal when buying a business, you should look for three things: debt, death or divorce. These three things can all put pressure on an owner to sell a business. Too much business or personal debt can force a sale, a death in the family (or of the owner themselves) can force a sale, and the division of assets that usually accompanies a divorce can also trigger a sale. In each of these cases, a sale is likely to be conducted quickly, and in a shorter timeframe than would be undertaken for a business operating under normal circumstances. The need to appease one or

more third parties (eg. secured creditors, ex-spouses, the beneficiaries of an estate) from the proceeds of a sale can provide a strong incentive to sell quickly, even if it is not always for the best price. This might be bad news for a seller, but good news for the buyer. Greenfield locations Undervalued greenfield franchises are harder to find and come without an existing income stream, compared to going concerns. Established franchisors will rarely, if ever, discount new franchises. However every few years they might review their franchise to reduce some of the costs in setting-up a new store. For a retail businses with a set-up cost of say, $400,000, a review might be able to reduce the set-up cost by five or 10 per cent if a different fitout, fixtures or fittings are used, or a lower up-front franchise fee is applied. While this might not be a large enough reduction to qualify as “undervalued”, it is still a valuable saving for a franchise buyer. Generally speaking, undervalued greenfield franchises are most likely to be offered by start-up franchisors who are keen to attract enough early adopters to get their network to achieve a critical mass of outlets as quickly as possible. However this occurs quite rarely as most new franchisors tend to need the capital injection from granting franchises more so than a critical mass of outlets. When it does occur, outlets may only be offered to those who already have a relationship with the new franchisor, and therefore the vast majority of potential franchise buyers will be unaware of the undervalued offer. Regardless of the circumstances of a franchise offer, a potential buyer must always undertake extensive due diligence before commiting to a purchase. So with this in mind, the best chance of finding an undervalued franchise is to look for a going concern that is underperforming, in need of reinvestment, or where the owner is in financial strife or has other serious distractions in their life. Strangely enough, few of these circumstances commonly feature in “For Sale” headlines, so a closer look at the advertisements for existing businesses for sale will reveal whether or not they represent an opportunity to buy a bargain. Happy hunting, and always remember that if a deal looks too good to be true, it probably is.

Unique Park & Rental Business in The Middle of Cooktown Cooktown Orchid Travellers Park is a well established park located in a prime position in the centre of Cooktown, a major tourist centre in far north Queensland. The town’s position at the mouth of the Endeavour River and proximity to the Reef makes for fabulous scenery, enhanced by the tropical and relaxed atmosphere of Cape York. The park comprises 27 all-powered sites, a salt water pool, an amenities block, a communal kitchen and dining area, office and manager accommodation, and storage facilities. In the high season (April-October), a couple can easily manage the business. Annually, the park generates $110,000+ from the

sites. However, the owners have been overseas for the last 8 years and have had the park in ‘caretaker’ rather than improvement mode. A new owner could significantly improve revenues by in excess of $50,000. The Cooktown Orchid Centre adjoins the park and comprises 5 shop units fronting the main street. These are all fully let to established tenants/businesses and generate an additional $60,000 per year. Tenants include a fantastic and popular Italian restaurant and a massage therapist that compliment the park well. Brochure provided upon request.

Child Care Centre

Brisbane Bayside


Great Investment Now With Huge Potential This is a well established (10 years) 99-place freehold Long Day Care incorporating 5 environments. The Child Care Centre is located not far from Brisbane's CBD in the beautiful Moreton Bay region with its multitude of sandy beaches and wonderful recreational areas. The Centre is situated on a 4,197m² freehold block (approximately 1 acre) within a flexible use, air-conditioned, spacious and recently renovated facility. There is plenty of space for expansion. The Centre is conveniently situated opposite the local state primary school. A 5-year government funded transport service agreement for the transfer of children to and from the facility has ensured the childcare centre a virtual monopoly with no direct competition within its catchment area. The Centre currently has a gross turnover of $1,200,000 plus providing a net profit of approximately $400,000. The insurance replacement cost of the building is estimated at $1,600,000. The Business operates with an experienced management team who can facilitate a smooth transition to new ownership. The current 20 year registered lease would enable a passive freehold/leasehold ownership arrangement if required. This would be a great investment for a person looking for a really solid return with little or no involvement in the day to day running of the business. An even better option would be for an owner/operator to take over what is currently a very well run and profitable operation with the potential to grow the business in the future. Located in one of Australia's premier growth corridors and tourist destinations, the area is expanding rapidly in popularity and population, creating an ongoing demand for quality child care. The added bonus that comes with the purchase of this great business is the lifestyle provided by the region (boating, fishing, sailing, beaches). A lifestyle to be envied! The current owners are selling due to retirement plans. Further information and financial details would be provided upon inspection and when confidentiality requirements have been completed.

The Business is located on the Mid-North Coast of NSW, a beautiful sub-tropical area of Australia with a multitude of great beaches and water ways. The whole region is a very popular tourist destination, but very few businesses can combine this amazing lifestyle with just a 5 day work week! The Distribution business has acquired a large and loyal clientele throughout the region with a reputation for reliability and good service. The Business operates within a large buying group and through its strong longterm relationship, is able to offer customer reward programmes over a diverse range of products. The customer base includes hotels, motels, service stations, schools, hospitality, retail stores and community groups who are re-ordering on a frequent and regular basis, and continually looking to add new product lines.

This is a Mon-Fri operation with the current owners managing the business with the assistance of 1 full-time and 1 casual employee. The warehouse/office premises are leased for a further 12 months, with a 3-year option. The current owners have systemised the business by putting in place a comprehensive, and fully documented, manifest of policies and procedures thereby ensuring the business remains easily and efficiently run under any owner. Through “word-of-mouth” the Distribution business has grown substantially each year, both in terms of the physical area serviced and in overall profitability. This is due, in part, to having a rep in the field making face-to-face contact with customers, as well as a large base of regular phone order clients. Another factor is the ongoing increase in the overall population (currently 320,000 plus). The region’s main towns are Taree, Forster, Port Macquarie, Kempsey, South West Rocks, Lord Howe Island, Nambucca Heads, and Coffs Harbour. Taree, Port Macquarie and Coffs Harbour are major commercial centres with large shopping centres, good public facilities, amenities and attractions.

Very Profitable Jetts 24 Hour Gym The Jetts 24 Hour Gym is located with good exposure in the south-eastern suburbs of Melbourne.

Mornington Peninsula


Well Established Business in an Incredible Location This is an excellent opportunity to buy into our successful business. We have four Japanese restaurants in Melbourne and have decided to sell this one in Rye so that we can spend more time on our other three locations.

The business is well established - we started our first “Sushi Express” in 2009 and the outlet in Rye in 2012. We have a exceptionally busy summer trade and regular local customers through the winter months.

The business comes fully set up and we can provide training to ensure a smooth hand-over. We chose the site due to its’ excellent location directly across from the pier in Rye and fitted it out with a brand new commercial kitchen, specialist sushi fridges and rice machine and sushi train.

The business lease comes with accommodation above the shop which is highly beneficial in this location. If you have an interest in discussing this further please contact Kean. Owner does not want to be contacted by agents or advertisers.

Mollymook Weddings & Events Mollymook Weddings is a hire business specialising in weddings. Has been featured in Modern Wedding magazine, Canberra times and a number of smaller publications & multimedia outlets.

If you were living in the area, you could drive this business into a successful entity quite easily.
