Why Choose

Franchising? Rod Young, Managing Director, DC Strategy

F

ranchising is a big part of the global economy. If any business is serious about building a substantial network they should benchmark their strategy and progress against global industry peers not just local competition.

They will soon find that franchising is a big differentiator between those companies that are growing in the new post-GFC economy and those that are struggling to expand in today’s more challenging business environment.

For the Franchisor Franchising offers the opportunity to build truly national and global businesses on a scale that nonfranchised competition just cannot match. Many of the world’s most successful companies such as Coca Cola, Shell, Toyota, BP, Ford, Pepsi, General Motors and of course KFC and McDonald’s have built domestic and global brands using franchising as a management and marketing tool, far outstripping the enterprise value of their nonfranchised counterparts. While all these global giants used franchising to achieve their current market leading status, over 90 per cent of all franchises in Australia are home grown. These include the 2012 Australian Franchisor of the Year, Hairhouse Warehouse, and many others including Muffin Break, Jenny Craig Weight Loss Centres, Grill’d, Banjo’s, L J Hooker, Jamaica Blue, Salsa’s, Cash Converters, Ben & Jerry’s, Terry White Chemists, Cupcake Bakery, Total Tools, Boost Juice, Gizmo, ANZ, Mortgage Choice, Pie Face and OPSM. All these brands and many, many more started their first outlets in Australia and used

franchising to grow into national and in some cases international brands. One of the most successful Australian franchises is Cartridge World which grew from one store in Adelaide into the global leader in printer cartridge refilling and now has over 200 stores in Australia and another 1500 in 60 countries. Many franchised businesses have grown from a modest one or two person business into valuable organisations with enterprise values that now exceed $50 to $100 million or more. As a result, franchising has created generational wealth for the founders who had the foresight to use franchising as a growth strategy. There are now over 1,000 businesses in Australia using franchising as a management and marketing tool to grow their networks and brands. Their franchisees have invested a collective $10 billion dollars in capital to establish almost 80,000 franchised businesses in Australia. The number of people employed in the franchise sector has grown strongly over the past decade and now 1,130,000 people are currently employed in franchised businesses across Australia.

insulation from localised economic or competitive forces and early access to high-growth markets. It also provides multiple parallel growth paths to drive network revenue. In a well-developed franchise network, the customer service experience is better than in a company-owned business. In a franchised business, the owner operator is focussed at the customer end of the business and interested in the lifetime value of the customer not just a one-off transaction as is often the case with paid employees. Another great benefit experienced by franchised networks is the micro-management of overheads and staff that creates operating efficiencies far better than many company-owned competitors.

For the Franchisee Prospective franchisees have been drawn to franchising due to the large range of businesses to choose from, the ability to become part of a proven business model and the lower risks of establishing a business under the umbrella of a franchise brand. While industry revenue has only increased by an annualised three or four per cent over the last few years the successful players are getting bigger with the top 100 franchised brands growing faster than the economy. Franchisees are also able to build their own business empires as part of the franchisors network. Successful franchisees in many franchised businesses that started their business life with a single location are now operating multiple locations and now own mini-corporations. The better multi-unit franchisees in the larger franchise networks have built significant wealth and operate multimillion dollar enterprises under the franchising structure. Good franchises are also easier to sell than independent businesses and as they can be sold to inexperienced operators who can be taught the franchisor’s proven systems and be provided with ongoing support and systems.

This translates into better valuation multiples and bigger goodwill. When these benefits are coupled with group buying power and pooling of advertising funds to create mass media marketing and advertising and ever more sophisticated digital media strategies under the franchise brand, is it any wonder that people wanting to get into business to build an asset for the family choose franchising to do so?

Managing Risk Franchising is a low risk strategy to get into and develop a business for both the franchisee and franchisor. However, franchising is not a get rich quick scheme. Franchisors and franchisees can, and do fail, and being involved in franchising is not a guarantee of success. Every franchisee and franchisor must understand that any business proposition has risks involved and they must be prepared to risk losing their assets. Understanding, accepting and then managing these risks is what differentiates the franchisors and franchisees from independent business people and employees. A franchise network spanning national (and potentially international) markets offers better diversification and

This gives franchised businesses the edge over competitors who are still operating traditional non-franchised business models.

Global Growth Subway, the global leader in the sandwich business was built on the back of a full business-format franchise program. From its base in America it has built a global business with over 30,000 stores built on a business model developed by its founder Fred DeLuca. Subway overtook McDonald’s store numbers two years ago. Gloria Jean’s Coffees used franchising to develop their domestic business in Australia and are now approaching 500 stores in Australia, outstripping the growth of international giant Starbucks who do not franchise. Gloria Jean’s has grown rapidly in its home market and is almost at the maximum number of stores that this market can sustain. They leveraged the franchised business model to create beachhead stores in over 30 countries and they expect that there will soon be substantially more of their coffee shops overseas than in their home market. UK sandwich and coffee operator Prêt a Mange has developed its London based business model as both a companyowned and a franchised structure to reward key staff and facilitate expansion

into the US. It now feeds hungry New York residents from a multi-store base which it plans to expand across America. In tiny domestic markets like Australia which represents less than two per cent of the world’s economy, the ANZ Bank used franchising to develop a mortgage broking network that now settles billions of dollars in new loans each year through a network of ANZ branded and franchised mortgage brokers. A further example is the franchised Boost Juice network which is approaching maximum store numbers in a county of just 22 million people. It had a choice of managing a maturing business by simply maintaining static store numbers and sales of around $100 million in one country or franchising overseas for growth. Boost Juice Bars can now be found in Indonesia, Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, Hong Kong, Macau, Kuwait, Chile, Brazil, South Africa, the UK, Estonia, India and South Korea with more countries coming on-line as a result of a welldeveloped and executed international franchise program. Expansion through franchising is not just confined to the food service business. Many businesses from body care retailer Body Shop, hairdresser Toni & Guy, auto service network Midas, child development franchise Helen O’Grady’s Children’s Drama Academy and Jenny Craig Weight Loss Centres are just a few of the hundreds of retail and service businesses who now have huge domestic as well as multi-country global networks.

need to develop a global outlook as competitive pressures impact growth, the domestic economy matures and the future global growth opportunities are shifting to China, Brazil, Russia and India where franchising is a newly emerging opportunity for both domestic and foreign franchisors. The reward for a business that has successfully executed a domestic and international franchise program is significant growth in shareholder value. Whether a business network is located in Europe, North or South America, Africa, Australia, India or Asia, a franchise strategy needs to be considered earlier rather than later in the domestic growth phase to take advantage of growth opportunities and a defence against internationalisation of the local market.

Some may feel the development of a franchising strategy should be delayed or is too complex and overwhelming or the economic conditions are not at their best. However, with the right advice and a staged approach to developing the strategy, structure, economics, commercial policies, agreements, documents, manuals and recruitment program needed to plan a successful franchise network, proven businesses can adopt a “born global” attitude that will allow their business to join the thousands of successful franchise systems now operating in domestic and foreign markets.

A Powerful Strategy The combination of capital for expansion and motivated owner-operators investing their capital and time in both the franchisor’s brand as well as their business, is a powerful strategic combination.

Banks and other financial service businesses are now franchising their expertise and brand to grow better and more profitable businesses and even medical practices are moving to expand their network through franchising. Governments are granting franchises embracing transport, water and energy distribution and generation. Sport is heavily structured around a franchised model in basketball, football and motor sports. Even franchised businesses located in major markets like the United States

Which kind of

Franchise is right for me?

Kevin Bugeja, Managing Director, Franchise Selection

S

ounds like an easy question but finding the answer to this can be much harder than it may first appear. Going into business is one of the most important decisions most people will make in their lifetime, somewhere between buying a house and choosing their partner.

The cost of a franchise, including the franchise fee and set up costs can run into the hundreds of thousands or even millions of dollars. With so much at stake, it pays to do your homework. Investing time and patience in the beginning can save you frustration and money in the future. There are literally hundreds of franchise opportunities to choose from in nearly every imaginable category you can think of. So before we all get too fixed or excited about what type of franchise we are interested in, it is probably important to understand what your budget is and then only look at franchises that fall within 6070 per cent of this budget. Most people tend to over-stretch themselves and don’t leave enough for working capital and some emergency funds should the business end up costing more than first anticipated due to a cost blow out or just because the business is taking longer than expected to breakeven. Once you calculate the initial investment for the franchises you are interested in then you will be able to determine which one best fits your financial situation. If you don’t have the capital for opening a

particular franchise then you should find one more suited to your financial situation. When it comes to franchising you will be expected to pay a one time franchise fee simply to have the rights to open that franchise. This one time nonrefundable fee ranges depending on the franchise you are interested in but is usually around $50,000. There are also other fees associated with franchises like start-up expenses, training, insurance, inventory, royalties, and marketing fees. Different franchises have different fees so it is important to consider all the fees associated with each franchise you are interested in.

Once you have evaluated your liquidity, total investment, and personal business experience you are that much closer to finding the right franchise idea. Remember however, that while having the financing and experience down, there is still one very important element. What’s left you might be wondering? The answer is personal interest. If you are not personally interested in selling muffins and coffee then you are going to have a tough time making your muffin franchise a success.

Personal interest before profit Next choose a franchise that you can be proud to own. When considering franchise ideas keep these three key points in mind; investment, experience, and personal interest, to make sure you find the best franchise for you. I cannot emphasise this enough as most of the people we meet didn’t choose their careers but somehow fell into them. Most of these people left school and got

14

a full time job and stayed in the industry that they have now become accustomed to and have attained knowledge and skills in. But if we think about this we made this decision after leaving school with no real life experience so it’s no wonder that people hate their jobs. One of the greatest advantages you have when buying a franchise is the freedom to choose an industry that you are interested in. The next is to choose a franchise that you will be happy to tell your best friend or someone you haven’t seen in years what it is you do for a living and choose to do as your own business. If the business you are interested doesn’t pass this test then chances are you will begin to hate this choice pretty soon too.

the franchise owner and not just by the franchise model they purchased. Even in successful brands franchisees can fail. The type of franchise you should pick is not one that has the supposed possibility of making you the most money because this simply won’t work.

Get rich quick schemes don’t work!

We all catch planes not expecting them to crash but each time we fly they do a safety demonstration and tell you to ‘Locate the nearest exit’. You wouldn’t get on an airplane unless you were reasonably sure you were going to make it safely but you also need a plan

All franchises have the possibility of being lucrative and they also have the possibility of failing, most of the time the success of a franchise is achieved by

In business, challenges arise just like in everyday life but how quickly the franchise owner is able to deal with these and overcome they can also make a difference to the results they achieve. The most lucrative franchise for anyone is the one they find enjoyable and won’t mind dedicating all their free time to making it a success.

Develop an exit plan before you start


which kind of franchise is right for me?

in case something goes wrong. The same is true in business. No one likes to think that their new business might not succeed. You want things to work out. You also want to be able to survive in case they don’t. Besides, there are many reasons for leaving a business other than business failure. You may wish to try something different or decide to retire and enjoy your fortunes. Either way, you need to know what you are going to do with the business. Can you sell some parts of the business and keep others? Can anyone run this business? Who might be interested in buying it? Finally, how can you recoup your investment? Focus on your entry strategy, but be aware of the exits.

Evaluate yourself The most important ingredient to being a successful franchisee is passion. Before settling on a franchise, really give some thought to your passions in life. In business, passion brings success, and that rule applies equally to franchisees and independent business people. You must be able to follow the rules of the franchise. The franchisor is going to prescribe the colours you use, the design of your space, personnel procedures and perhaps salary ranges, products, and pricing. If you are going into business to do things creatively and differently, franchising may not be the best fit.

Ask yourself the following questions: Am I willing to embrace someone else’s system without trying to do it my way or make it ‘better’? Can I follow someone else’s lead and accept their advice and their criticism? Am I willing to be part of a network of franchisees, realising that there may be times when what is the best course for the network as a whole is not what is best for me? If you can honestly answer “yes” to

each of these questions, then you should continue to explore franchise opportunities.

of your analysis it adds up and makes sense to you, then put your best foot forward and strive for success.

Franchising is very similar to starting and operating a non-franchise business. There are pluses and minuses, and the prospective franchisee must do their homework. So do your due diligence, think hard about what you hope to get out of it, reflect upon your passions in life, consider the risks, and if at the end

usiness planning is truly the cornerstone of success, however too many franchisees fail to implement effective business plans which reflect their personal franchising goals. Developing a thorough business plan can not only help your business avoid the pitfalls presented by changing economic conditions but can effectively position your franchise for future growth.

succeed in the local market, a franchisee needs to consider:

You may be thinking: “My business has done well without one…why start now?” The answer is simple: You can’t rely on external market conditions for your growth. If you don’t have a business plan now – you may not need one next year.

• local business organisations/networks.

Most businesses that have endured the test of time are linked by one common factor - a good business plan. Before a franchisee attempts to serve their first customer, it is important that a clear and thorough plan be documented. A business plan represents a blueprint for success, and it is a tool which businesses can refer back to both in times of expansion and economic hardship. Many franchisees walk the business path without an appropriate map, believing that they are safe due to the fact they are part of a larger franchise structure. I believe that to be successful, franchisees should view their investment as a business in its own right. Each particular franchise is affected by differing economic variables, and it is vital these are planned for in an individual, localised business plan. To

Without a business plan, franchisees could walk blindly in an environment of economic uncertainty and miss opportunities as they arise in times of growth. The economic environment consistently offers great challenges to any businessperson looking to grow or consolidate their business, and franchisees should take the necessary steps to help ensure success. Seeking the advice of financial experts when developing plans and strategies for business longevity has never been more important, and franchisees should be careful to select advisors who specialise in the franchise sector. The most important thing is to plan now. Your business plan should not be an afterthought when the going eventually gets tough. Planning ahead will help you through the tough times, so take note of what is in a good business plan so you can avoid the pitfalls of an unplanned business. The more thorough a business plan, the greater its ability to guide a franchisee through the stages of

the times sets the truly successful businesses apart from the crowd. For franchisees, regularly reviewing and updating their business plan is the key. All business plans should be consistently reviewed and updated and used by franchisees to reassess their business strategies and implement new plans. When economic conditions tighten and consumer confidence declines, no franchise can afford to apply the same business tactics as nine months ago. Updating your business plan to account for the changing fiscal and consumer environment is as important as creating a business plan in the first place.

their business life. When developing a business plan it is vital for franchise owners to consider all aspects of their business and carefully forecast the operational requirements, financial turnover and marketing tactics. Whilst it can often be difficult to pinpoint the finite details of your business, the more planning a franchisee undertakes, the more successful the business is likely to be. When you are setting your business goals, make them clear, measurable and time specific.

WHAT SHOULD A BUSINESS PLAN LOOK LIKE? The basic layout for a business plan typically follows a structure that covers: • executive summary;

Ask yourself:

• your business goals (short, medium and long-term);

• What am I selling?

• your management plan;

• Who will benefit from my service?

• a SWOT analysis (your market and competitors);

• What makes my business different? • What returns do I want? • Where do I want to be in six months/ one year/10 years? Imagine your ideal business set-up and what it involves. While you might not be able to start with 100 plus staff and state of the art offices, you can most certainly plan your way there by setting goals that will get you there. Franchisees should also consider their potential market and any likely competitors. All too often franchise owners enter the market with little knowledge of the business environment

and what it will take to succeed. In these circumstances, approaching a local professional, such as a NAB franchise banker, with an understanding of the business environment can be truly beneficial.

• your marketing plan; • your operational plan; • your financial plan; and • action plan. Franchisees often have to work within certain structures and frameworks set out by the franchisor. This is why it is important to seek the advice of a professional when it comes to developing a business plan for a franchise. This will ensure accuracy and make sure all the requirements of being a franchisee are met. The ability to change and adapt with

It is important for franchises to reassess their financial position and realise the constraints being enforced on their business. Over-confidence can be a deadly business sin, and it is important for franchises not to attempt to grow too quickly. With this in mind, both franchisors and franchisees should communicate effectively to develop a concise and relevant business plan which reflects how your goals can best be achieved in the current climate. When updating your business plan, franchises should keep in mind the following points: • Trading cycles, costs and expected cash-flow should be reviewed and reassessed. If you believe that changing market conditions will affect one of these aspects, record it in your business plan. There is no use just planning for a best case scenario, franchisees need to plan for the reality of their environment. • Develop a strong and effective business relationship with the franchisor. Working in partnership to develop a united business plan based upon common goals is vital if franchisees want to succeed. • Take the opportunity to examine all aspects of your business plan. Business plans are fluid instruments, and no aspect of your plan should be irreproachable. If aspects of your marketing techniques are proving ineffective, examine and employ new strategies. • Get support and advice from your

business peers and experts who have an in-depth knowledge of finance and business. Planning around a changing business environment can be challenging, so utilise all of the resources available.

IS IT IMPORTANT THAT I HAVE A SIMILAR PLAN TO MY FRANCHISOR? Franchisors often develop generic business plans for their franchisees to ensure individual business goals are in line with the direction of the entire system. Whilst there may be certain guidelines that need to be adhered to, it is important that the plan for each franchisee is individual. Every business encounters its own unique opportunities and challenges, and it is important that these issues be reflected in a localised business plan. Each franchisee should be viewed as a unique business, and for a plan to be effective it needs to be as unique as the business itself. Where there is no existing generic plan, the ultimate success of any franchise operation is reliant on the working relationship between a franchisee and franchisor. Developing a business plan provides an opportunity for both franchisee and franchisor to explore potential strategies which can be adopted as part of the plan, and provides for a unified map from which both parties can work.

Franchisees should also aim to utilise the experience and knowledge of their franchisor especially in some of the more practical areas of business planning: forecasting expected cash flow, trading cycles and start up costs. In business, nothing is as helpful as practical experience, and any resource which can assist in the formulation of a business plan should be seized. In addition your specialist business banker to the franchise industry should be engaged as early as possible in the process. If it’s a bank that has accredited, or knows your particular franchise system, they will be used to working with franchise businesses like yours.

ALL FRANCHISES AIM TO CONSISTENTLY GROW. CAN A BUSINESS PLAN HELP A FRANCHISEE GROW? Whilst all businesses need to be careful not to outgrow their financial means within a slowing economy, franchises should try to position themselves to take advantage as soon as the economy swings. Implementing an effective business plan can significantly increase the probability that your business will be ready to reap the rewards of a financial spring. A business plan should not only help you consolidate in difficult times, it should help you grow when times are good. Here are some tips to help ensure your

franchise is well positioned to grow when the opportunity arises: • All franchisees should have a localised marketing strategy incorporated into their long term business plan. A marketing strategy which understands the buying habits of local customers is vital if you are planning to expand your business. • Franchise owners should be aware of how they plan to grow your business when the opportunity arises. Businesses need to know how they are going to best utilise their assets to achieve the desired growth. Even if you are not growing at the moment, franchisees should plan their growth strategy early so they can implement it at the first opportunity. • When planning ahead it is important that franchisees do not lose sight of their current situation. Avoid the temptation to tailor your whole business plan around the opportunity to grow. Remember, in order to grow, franchisees need to survive the current period. Whilst your franchisor and fellow franchisees can help with your planning, and assist you with information to back up your planning, having a good, documented business plan is ultimately up to you. Your money and your success, is your responsibility. History and research prove that a great business does not happen by accident. And although luck and timing play a part in most cases, there is also a good deal of planning upfront and along the way that paves the way for business success.

What Franchisors look for in

Franchisees Janine Allis, Managing Director, Retail Zoo

S

uccess (or failure) in life and business is created by the people you choose to surround yourself with. This philosophy is the backbone to our success and we have adopted it across the Retail Zoo organisation. Retail Zoo is the parent company to Boost Juice Bars, Boost Juice International, Salsa’s Fresh Mex Grill and CIBO. We believe strongly in this philosophy and it is in the forefront of our minds as we go through the selection process for our franchise partners. We strive to surround ourselves with greatness, so it is important for us to get this selection right.

1) The Right Fit

The right fit for one franchisor is completely different from another, which is great news, as not all potential franchisees are the same either. Take Boost Juice Bars for example; we are a young, hip, healthy-lifestyle brand, thus the people we look for believe in these philosophies and they understand what it takes to make a Boost business a success. This does not mean that all of our franchisees need to be under 25, fit and hip. However, it does mean the franchisees understand that the employees at the front of the store, serving customers, are exactly that: young (or young at heart), enthusiastic team members. The key is the franchisee having a passion for the Boost brand and our “Love Life” philosophy. Let me explain. If you’re passionate about cars or gardening, then you should look toward these concepts for achieving prosperity. If the potential franchisee’s passion is indeed aligned with ours, we then look at the cultural fit. You hear a lot about cultural fit, but what the heck does it really mean? Cultural fit relates to the same ideals, customs, principles and social behaviours for a group of people. Cultural fit can be different for different businesses. At Boost we thrive in a relaxed, zany, fun, casual atmosphere; our people are doers, problem solvers, they take full accountability, and they follow the rules and regulations that are associated with running a business. A law firm; on the other hand, might not have such a relaxed atmosphere.

At Boost one of our core values is transparency; all franchise partners can see what every other

So what do franchisors look for in franchisees? The simplest answer: the precise “people fit” for each individual franchise. If this isn’t exact, there is no point in moving forward. You may have heard about businesses dropping nearly 30 per cent once they were sold to a new owner. Why did this happen? The one and only difference -- the people. I have a dozen examples in my own company that are similar. It is important, no matter what type of profession you are in, that the people you put into place are the right people for the business to succeed. You can have the most effective systems and processes, but if the people are wrong - it won’t work! The following are five areas we consider when looking at franchisees for our businesses. I cannot answer for other companies regarding what they look for, but I can assume that good, solid franchisors would have similar objectives.

21


Janine Allis

Boost store is doing around the world. Some people may find that too confronting. Those that fit our culture, find this kind of transparency refreshing. They make use of this knowledge in their own stores and some use the information to challenge themselves (and their staff) to strive to be the best. Getting the cultural fit right is as important as making sure passion aligns. Get these two right and you have a winning combination.

2) Financial Acumen

22

Having good financial acumen does not mean that you need to have an accounting degree. Nor does it mean you have to know anything about accounting or finance - not initially. If you do not have a strong

who only look at their books once a year; ask them how much they spend on labour or the cost of raw materials and you would be met with a blank stare. Your numbers tell you where to put your focus, what areas are struggling, and (more importantly) they reveal if you are getting the desired return on your investment. I am not saying that you need to do your own accounting forever, but for the first 12 months I would expect to see a new owner review every invoice, sales receipt, monthly balance sheets and correspondence that directly affects their business. FYI - most bookkeepers are processors; it is not their money that they are inputting into your accounting system. It is always difficult when you are learning something new, but trust me, the rewards are worth the effort. When evaluating financial acumen from a franchisee we look for people who are highly detailed and organised with regard to their accounting systems, and those that understand the importance of these financial numbers (or are in the process of learning).

grasp of accounting or finance now, that doesn’t mean you won’t. Heaven knows, when I started I didn’t have a clue about accounts, balance sheets, debits or credits; I wasn’t exactly sure where to even start. With that said, a franchisor may require you to know something about finance or at least be taking steps to learn about basic accounting. For example, maybe you have enrolled in a small business course or are taking an accounting course on-line, in some instances this might be sufficient.

If a potential franchisee says they are giving their accounts to a bookkeeper, I see that as a big red flag. This will never work, as the owner will not fully understand what is happening in their business. I have heard of business owners

3) Investment philosophy

Franchisees have different reasons for wanting to invest in a franchise.


What Franchisors look for in Franchisees

Some want a franchise because they believe it is an easy investment; that all you have to do is open a store and it runs itself. They think that by simply paying a royalty fee all will be fine, thus making it someone else’s responsibility to ensure their business is a winner. We quickly put a red line across the potential franchisee that has this philosophy, as this is a recipe for failure. If you want an investment that runs itself, buy into the share market. A franchise business is like any other business, the harder you work the more you are rewarded. If you think that you can run a business remotely, do not become a franchisee. A franchisor is looking for someone who is prepared to dedicate their time into making the business a success. A franchisee who fully understands that their business will succeed if they make it so and not leave it with someone else, is critical.

4) Customer service principles

Every business on the planet has customers. Therefore, what franchisors look for in their potential franchisee is customer focus. At Retail Zoo we want our businesses to be known for going above and beyond for their customers. This may mean that in the short term, you might be giving away more free product than you would like. In the long term however, the value of good customer service and a great customer experience, means the difference between a successful business and one that is just like everybody else. A franchisor is looking for franchisees that have high consumer focus, those that go the extra mile to please a customer.

5) System Supporter

One of the reasons a business is able to become a franchisor is they have a strong business model. Generally, these businesses have proven they are successful not only in one location, but in many. These

franchisors have demonstrated they have methodologies and systems in place that work. Ultimately the franchisee is paying for the brand strength and these systems and processes. So, what we look for in a franchisee is their ability to follow our proven methodology and systems. If a person struggles to follow the bouncing ball or makes their own changes along the way, this shows up as a red flag for us. If this is the case, the potential franchisee may not have the ability to follow the systems that are established once they are approved. Being a franchisee is not for everyone. It is one of the safest ways to be successful in a business, though not a blanket guarantee. You may not always agree with a franchisor, but remember, there is a reason they are so successful. If you think you would strain to follow a systematic methodology, then perhaps being a franchisee is not for you.

A franchisor looks for many aspects within a franchisee, but basically they are looking for the right type of person who suits their franchise model. The selected franchisees will have the right fit, their passions align and they fit within the current cultural; understand the basics of business (or they are willing to put the effort in to learn); be prepared to work in the business and fully immerse themselves to ensure success; understand the true value of their customer; and finally, have the ability to follow a proven business approach. The bottom line: a franchisor/franchisee relationship is a partnership and this partnership needs to be a win-win for everyone for it to truly succeed.

What is

Due Diligence? Jason Gehrke, Director, Franchise Advisory Centre

A

t the point of receiving disclosure documentation, many potential franchisees are recommended by their franchisors to use the Franchising Code’s 14-day waiting period to undertake their due diligence on the franchise investment. The problem for many potential franchisees at this point is that they don’t know what due diligence is and may have never heard the term before. They may figure due diligence must be something that is expensive and complicated and therefore done by the lawyers or other professional advisors that they might engage to handle “the paperwork” of the sale. In other words, it’s something difficult done by somebody else. Nothing could be further from the truth. Due diligence is no more complicated than looking at the facts of a deal from all angles to make sure they stack up. In short, due diligence assesses the risks and opportunities of a proposed transaction, be it buying a business or entering some other arrangement.

on first taking it for a test-drive, conduct a title check, get a mechanic to look over the vehicle, and ask questions of other people who have owned the same type of car. This is considered natural behaviour when buying a car and forms part of our pre-purchase due diligence. By comparison, why wouldn’t a potential franchisee or business buyer want to do the same thing when going into business for the first time? Unfortunately many franchisors can recount examples of franchisees who have been too eager to join the system and then conducted little or no due diligence – with the result that their businesses failed to meet their expectations and both franchisor and franchisee become estranged. Here are some other definitions of due diligence to help potential franchisees understand the concept: 1. The process of investigating a potential investment; 2. The care a reasonable person should take before committing to a transaction; 3. An assessment of the desirability, value and potential of an investment opportunity;

Conducting a building inspection and title search as a condition of buying a house is an example of due diligence in a real estate transaction.

4. Background research to determine the worthiness of an acquisition.

Getting engaged and taking the time to know someone before getting married is a form of due diligence (occasionally supplemented today by Googling a potential partner’s details, or searching their Twitter and Facebook pages, etc).

Who is responsible for undertaking Due Diligence?

Most people who buy a secondhand car insist

The potential buyer is responsible for undertaking due diligence. Although there is a statutory requirement for disclosure under the Franchising Code of Conduct, franchisors are not required

25


Jason Gehrke

to ensure that franchisees actually undertake due diligence. Even where a statutory disclosure obligation exists under the Code, buyers should – as much as possible - seek to independently verify information presented to them in order to reduce the risk of making a purchase decision based on false, out of date or incomplete information. Buyers will usually involve professional advisors to assist in the due diligence process. These will generally include accountants (to assess financial data and issues), lawyers (to assess legal, contractual and mandatory compliance issues) and specialists relevant to the industry or market sector in which the business operates. Irrespective of the use of advisors, the buyer takes ultimate responsibility for the decision to invest in the business offered. The buyer takes full responsibility both for the investment decision and for the completeness of the due diligence process which gave rise to that investment decision.

26

Buyer to act in own interest In any commercial transaction, the buyer has a choice to proceed or not proceed with the deal. It is expected that a seller will act in their own interest to maximise their benefit from the transaction, and by the same token, so should buyers. However many people who buy small businesses or franchises have little or

no prior experience in undertaking such deals. As a result, they may have little or no understanding of due diligence, and instead rely solely on their accountants and lawyers, and the veracity of the information provided by the franchisor. Unfortunately without an adequate knowledge as to what a proper due diligence process should involve, the buyer is limited in their ability to protect


What is Due Diligence?

from the purchase price of the business. The buyer invests their time and energy in considering the transaction, and should the transaction not complete, the buyer at least is usually better-prepared and more experienced to undertake the next due diligence process. As a general rule, potential franchisees should make a due diligence soft cost investment of one hour of time per $1,000 to be invested in the business. This can be spent on researching the specific business opportunity, as well as the industry and business in general and will ensure that a reasonable amount of time is allocated to assessing the risks and opportunities of the proposed transaction.

Verify disclosure information their own interests. They may fail to seek professional advice in the first place, or fail to understand the advice provided. More importantly, they may simply fail to verify the information provided by the franchisor, and rely on untested detail. If the buyer does not act in their own interests, they cannot expect that their advisors alone will be able to do so, or that sellers will either.

The cost of due diligence There are at least two types of cost involved in conducting due diligence: hard and soft costs. Hard costs are cash outlays, which can be substantial. It requires an investment of time and cash to research information and pay advisors. The Franchise Advisory Centre recommends that potential franchisees be prepared to pay at least between two and five per cent of the cost of a franchise on due diligence alone. In other words, if the franchise costs $100,000, then the potential franchisee should be prepared to spend between $2,000 and $5,000 on their due diligence. If, after conducting a due

diligence process a buyer decides not to proceed, then the cost of due diligence will be significantly less than the potential losses the buyer would have incurred if they had proceeded with the business and it subsequently failed. By far the greatest cost of any due diligence process is the cost of professional advisors (ie. accountants, lawyers and other professionals engaged for their expertise). These advisors will usually work on a per hour or project rate, and so it stands that the greater the investment, the more diligence required, the greater the advisor costs will be. It goes without saying that professional advisors acting for the buyer will require payment whether or not the buyer completes the sale. While this could mean that the buyer will “lose” the cost of the due diligence by not completing the sale, this might be a very small loss compared to the cost of buying an unsuitable or unsustainable business. Soft costs are the costs of the buyer’s time. Time spent researching a business is not something a buyer can expect to be paid for or have deducted

Potential franchisees will rely primarily on information provided in the franchisor’s disclosure document, and should make every attempt to independently verify each item in the document to ensure that the information presented is current and correct. It is important to remember that disclosure documents under the Code are required to be updated within four months of the end of the financial year (which for most systems will be October 31 for the preceeding 12 month period July to June). Consequently, a franchisee who receives a disclosure document in July, August or September in any given year could be looking at information which is 12 months or more old. If this is the case, the potential franchisee may choose to request a more recent disclosure document, or defer a purchase decision until after the disclosure document is updated.

The

Franchise Agreement

Elisabeth Ritchie, Partner, HWL Ebsworth Lawyers.

T

he primary document that records and governs the relationship between the franchisor and the franchisee is the franchise agreement. A final copy of this agreement (in the form to be signed by the parties) needs to be provided with the disclosure document at least 14 days prior to the franchisee entering into the agreement. It is important that a prospective franchisee fully understands the terms of the agreement, and seeks legal advice in relation to its effect, as this document will form the basis of the relationship between the franchisee and franchisor including all the rights and obligations of both parties. While the terms of a franchise agreement will depend upon the type of franchise the following terms are generally found in most franchise agreements.

free to choose to deal with whichever franchisee they choose and franchisees may not agree to refuse to deal with customers who originate outside their exclusive area. This is often expressed as the principle of ‘own the territory, not the customer.’ You should check the extent of any exclusive rights, how they can be revoked (e.g. if you do not reach certain performance targets) and whether the franchisor can operate or sell products or services itself within the territory (the franchisor often reserve the right to sell e.g. by internet). The grant will generally be for a fixed term of years. The most common is a five year term with a right of renewal for a further five years at the end of the initial term subject to certain conditions being complied with. These conditions generally include: (a) being in compliance with the current agreement (b) entering into the then current form of franchise agreement

GRANT OF RIGHT TO OPERATE FRANCHISE

(c) paying any costs or renewal fees

The first part of the franchise agreement usually sets out the nature of the franchise being granted.

(d) ensuring that any equipment or premises are refurbished or updated in accordance with the then image of the franchise system.

While most retail franchises are site based, services based franchises are generally a territory. This may be on an exclusive or non-exclusive basis. The franchisor may agree to not grant another franchise within that territory and the franchisee may agree to not actively market or solicit customers outside of its territory. However, customers must always be

necessary then there will be numerous requirements in relation to the fit-out and establishment of the premises as well as an ongoing maintenance and refurbishment obligations. Initial fit-out may be undertaken by the franchisor or by third party shopfitters. Depending upon the system (and sometimes the location) the lease may be held by you or the franchisor. If the franchisor holds the lease then you will be granted a licence to occupy or sublease and be required to pay either a licence fee (which mirrors the amount due under the head lease) or a rental payment (if you have a sublease). In both cases you will also be required to pay other costs and charges in relations to the lease including outgoings (e.g. services payments). protect. While you will be granted a right to use the intellectual property to operate the business, it will be usually under strict requirements and you will be required to acknowledge that you will not gain any ownership in such intellectual property even if you develop or improve it. You should check who actually owns the intellectual property and ensure that the franchisor has long term rights to be able to grant or sub-licence it to the franchisees. You should also check that it has been appropriately protected (e.g. by the registration of the trademarks).

MANUALS Franchise agreements are usually long term agreements; as a result the daily operational requirements are usually included in separate manuals. The manuals will be updated as the system develops and you will be required to adhere to these requirements from time to time. As the manuals will contain a whole range of additional obligations you should ensure that you ask to view a copy of the manuals prior to entering into the franchise agreement.

PAYMENT Most franchise agreements require franchisees to pay upfront and ongoing fees:

30

(a) upfront fees: these are generally an initial fee for the grant of the franchise and training fees; (b) ongoing fees: these are usually royalties (sometimes known as franchise service fees or ongoing franchise fees) and a marketing contribution. The latter is paid into a central marketing fund and is used to market the system as a whole. The fees may be a fixed dollar amount or a percentage of sales. Other payments could include software licence fees, administration fees and there is usually a requirement to pay interest and costs in relation to any overdue amounts. Payments are generally required to be made periodically (weekly, monthly, quarterly) and many systems now require the franchisees set up direct debit facilities.

If the lease is to be held in your name then you will usually be required to include certain clauses in the lease which give the franchisor notice of any breaches under the lease as well as a right of re-entry should the franchise agreement come to an end for any reason. In both cases you will generally be required to provide security under the lease by way of personal guarantees and a security deposit or bank guarantee for three to six months’ rent. You should check the term of the lease as usually the term of the franchise agreement is linked to the lease. In the event that the lease is not renewed, or you lose the right of possession, then you should ensure you have the right to re-locate premises. This is usually within a certain time frame and subject to the reasonable approval of both parties.

GST will be payable on fees (currently 10 per cent).

CONNECTIONS AND TECHNOLOGY

You should ensure that you fully understand the payments that are required to be made, that the fees cannot be unilaterally changed by the franchisor during the term of the agreement, and that you receive advice in relation to the sanctions which can be applied in the event of non-payment.

Depending upon the type of system, customers may be directed to a central telephone number and website or the franchisee will set up and use its own telephone number and website. If the latter applies then there will usually be requirements to transfer or discontinue any numbers or the website at the end of the term.

PREMISES In the event that premises are

similar technology platform and to use a central management for both point of sale and reporting. Accordingly it is likely that you will be required to have an internet connection, certain computer hardware and software and a dedicated email address.

ACQUISITION OF STOCK You may need stock or products to operate the business. These may be ingredients or components or the finished product (e.g. furniture which is resold or cleaning chemicals which are to be used when providing the services). Depending on the system these may be supplied by the franchisor (or an associated entity) or by independent suppliers. If the franchisor controls the supplies to the franchisee by requiring the stock to be purchased from a nominated or third party supplier then unless it has sought the approval of the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission this may be a contravention of the Competition and Consumer Act (you can check on www.accc.gov. au if a notification has been filed and not objected to). More commonly the franchisor will require the franchisee to acquire goods from an approved supplier. Thus you could nominate your own supplier but this supplier would be vetted by the franchisor first for quality assurance.

SALE OF PRODUCTS In order to ensure consistency of image many franchise systems will strictly control the range of products which its franchisees must, or are permitted to, supply. For example, in the case of food franchises this will be by way of a mandated menu board; in service franchises by the list of services available. In all of these cases the franchisor generally retains a discretion to vary the type of products and/or services and the franchisee is required to change upon notification. Prior to the entering into the franchise agreement, you should find out what the current product range is, what you are required to stock and sell and what changes are imminent.

PRICE CONTROL

CONFIDENTIAL INFORMATION

The franchise agreement may also deal with the pricing policy of the franchisor.

You will be required to not disclose the franchisor’s confidential information except as required for the operation of the business. The information may include financial information as well as operating procedures (in the manuals), proposed promotional activities and confidential, or product and pricing, policies. You will also have confidential information and you should ensure that there some reciprocal requirements for the franchisor to maintain the confidentiality of your financial records.

If the franchisor operates company stores that compete with franchised stores, then any attempt to set or control prices in the franchised outlets will constitute price fixing and so be illegal. Limited exemptions apply: (a) collectively acquired goods may be jointly advertised; (b) if the franchisor supplies the goods to the franchisees, the franchisor may set the maximum price at which the franchisee can resell those products (provided the franchisee is free to discount below that price); or (c) the franchisor can apply to the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission to have their contravening conduct authorised. Such authorisation is typically only granted where a public benefit can be proved. If the franchisor does not operate company stores in competition with franchisees, the franchisor may be able to control the pricing of its franchisees. However, a franchisor cannot set the price at which products it supplies to franchisees are to be re-supplied as this is resale price maintenance (although maximum prices may be set as described above).

PROMOTION OF THE FRANCHISE BUSINESS Franchisees usually have marketing requirements and expenditure on two levels:

RECORDS AND REPORTS You will be required to provide information to the franchisor about the franchise business. Depending upon the type of system, these obligations may be weekly, monthly, quarterly and/or annual. Franchisors generally need to know information regarding the purchase of supplies, the sales of the business (particularly if the fees are pegged to sales), what promotional activities are being undertaken, and have an understanding of the balance sheet position of the business on a periodical basis. Most systems will provide forms for reporting.

TRAINING REQUIREMENTS Franchisees are generally required to undertake, and take the benefit of, preliminary and ongoing training in a franchise system. The cost of the preliminary training may be included in the initial franchisee fee or there may be a separate fee.

(b) a local marketing requirement (which again may be a percentage of sales or a fixed dollar amount per year/ month/quarter).

You should ensure that you understand what training is being provided, what the cost is, and where and when the training will take place. Note that some franchise systems have lengthy training which may take two to three months (or longer). You should also understand who is being trained and whether there is any additional cost for other persons to be trained.

The latter requires the franchisees to locally market their businesses whereas the central marketing fund is generally for national or regional brand development, recognition and promotion.

On an ongoing basis you should ensure that the franchisor is required to provide training on any new products and/or services and that generally the training requirements are not too onerous. As the franchisee generally pays for the

(a) a contribution to a central marketing fund (usually a percentage of sales); and

31

cost of the training it is important to understand where the training will be held and how often.

FRANCHISOR’S OBLIGATIONS As the franchisee is being granted the rights to use the franchisor’s intellectual property and know-how then generally there are more obligations on the franchisee than the franchisor. The franchisee should however ensure that the franchisor does have obligations to make available all the products and services, to develop the system and to provide reasonable support and assistance. The franchisor should also have some specific obligations in relation to the marketing fund and the accounting thereof (which should be in accordance with the Franchising Code).

unless you: (i) no longer hold a licence that you must hold to carry on the franchise business; or (ii) become a bankrupt, insolvent under administration or an externally administered body corporate; or (iii) voluntarily abandon the franchise business or the franchise relationship; or (iv) are convicted of a serious offence; or (v) operate the franchise business in a way that endangers public health or safety; or (vi) are fraudulent in connection with the operation of the franchise business; or (vii) agree to the termination.

TERMINATION The franchise agreement may come to an end in the following circumstances: (a) by way of expiry (the fixed term ends); (b) you or the franchisor terminates the franchise agreement for breach or default by the other party; (c) you sell the franchise business and enter into a deed of surrender on sale; (d) you and the franchisor agree to end the agreement. The termination provisions of the agreement are governed by the Franchising Code of Conduct. The franchise agreement should reflect the Franchising Code termination requirements. If you commit a breach then unless the default is one of the circumstances set out at (i) to (vii) below, the franchisor must serve you with a written notice of breach which sets out the nature of the breach and what is required to rectify it. The franchisor must allow you a reasonable time to remedy the breach (which need not be more than 30 days) and must warn you that if not rectified then it may terminate the franchise agreement. The franchisor cannot terminate the franchise agreement without providing notice and an opportunity to rectify

32

In addition to the above, the franchisor may retain a right to terminate upon notice if certain circumstances occur. Before terminating the franchise agreement, the franchisor must give reasonable written notice of the proposed termination, and the reasons for it to you. It, should also be noted that you are also afforded an early right of termination. Pursuant to the Franchising Code a franchisee has the right to terminate the franchise agreement within seven days of entering into the franchise agreement or making a payment under the agreement. If it wishes to exercise this right it must serve a written notice on the franchisor and the franchisor is required to refund to the franchisee all monies paid to the franchisor in relation to the franchise, less its reasonable expenses incurred by the franchisor, if these expenses have been set out in the franchise agreement.

UPON TERMINATION There are usually strict requirements upon termination to cease operating the franchise business and to cease using the trademarks and know-how. You will generally be required to return all materials which include the brand and any other proprietary materials such as manuals. It is also likely that you will be restrained

from operating or being involved in a similar or competing business for a period of time within a certain area. The franchisor often retains rights upon termination to purchase stock, fixtures and fittings and equipment, and, if it doesn’t hold the lease, to take an assignment of the lease.

TEMPORARY OPERATION/ CLOSURE More commonly, franchisors are now providing a right in the agreement to actually take over the temporary operation or closure of the franchise business (rather than terminate the franchise agreement) in the event that the franchisee is in breach in order to protect the brand or reputation of their system. These clauses generally allow the franchisor’s representative to have authority to run the business and to collect the turnover of the business/fee during this temporary operation period. This may also be advantageous to the franchisee as it may allow the franchisee to put in place operating procedures and rectify any other breaches so as to enable it to operate the business longer term.

TRANSFER The sale of a franchise business is governed by the Franchising Code and the franchise agreement should reflect the requirements under the Code. If you wish to sell your franchise business then you must make a request in writing and the franchisor must not unreasonably withhold its consent to the transfer. The Code sets out various circumstances in which it is reasonable for a franchisor to withhold consent. While these are not exhaustive and the franchise agreement itself may include additional requirements, the Code circumstances include the following: (a) that the purchaser is unlikely to be able to meet the financial obligations that it would have under the franchise agreement; (b) if the purchaser does not meet a reasonable requirement of the franchise agreement for the transfer or novation of the franchise;


the franchise agreement

(c) the purchaser has not met the selection criteria of the franchisor; (d) the agreement for sale will have a significant and adverse effect on the franchise system; (e) the proposed purchaser does not agree in writing to comply with the obligations of the franchisee under the franchise agreement; (f) you have not paid or made a reasonable provision to pay an amount owing to the franchise; or (g) you breach the franchise agreement and do not remedy the breach. Note that if the franchisor simply doesn’t respond within 42 days then it is deemed to have given its consent. You and the purchaser will enter into a Contract for Sale of Business and the purchaser will usually* enter into a new franchise agreement with the franchisor for the balance of the term of the franchise. [*The purchaser may alternatively enter into a deed of assignment of your franchise agreement.]

DISPUTE RESOLUTION The Franchising Code requires franchise agreements to have a complaint handling procedure that complies with the Code. This procedure requires the complainant to issue a notice of dispute setting out the nature of the dispute, the outcome the complainant wants and the action that the complainant thinks will settle the dispute. The parties must then spend the next 21 days trying to resolve the dispute. If it is incapable of being resolved then either party may refer the matter to mediation and the parties must attend the mediation and try to resolve the dispute.

GUARANTEE AND INDEMNITY As many franchise agreements are entered into by companies, it is common that the franchisor will require that the directors (and perhaps others involved) to personally guarantee the performance of the franchisee’s obligations under the franchise agreement so that in the event of breach/termination there is a right of recourse against both the guarantors and the company. Please note that the

guarantee and indemnities are generally wide and the franchisor can take action against the personal guarantors for any breach or loss occasioned as a result of the franchisee’s actions (regardless of whether the franchisor has attempted to take action against the franchisee first).

CONCLUSION The franchise agreement is the central document to the franchise relationship. As the franchisor will want to keep its documentation/franchisee obligations consistent throughout the network, the terms of the franchise agreement are often difficult to negotiate, particularly with the more established systems. It is however important that you are fully aware of your rights and obligations both during the term, on renewal or transfer, as well as after the agreement has ended.

Franchising and the Law

Raynia Theodore, Principal, Mason Sier Turnbull

F

ranchising is often considered an exciting venture, but it is also important to remember that the franchise relationship is intricate, complex and highly regulated. This article examines some of the many different areas and sources of law which govern and affect the franchise relationship. FRANCHISING CODE OF CONDUCT The main pieces of legislation relevant to the franchise industry in Australia are: • the Franchising Code of Conduct (the Code); • the Competition and Consumer Act 2010 (Cth) (the CCA) (formerly the Trade Practices Act 1974 (the TPA)) under which the Code was enacted; and • the Australian Consumer Law (the ACL), which is part of the CCA. However, all franchises are, in essence, businesses and Australian businesses are regulated by a plethora of laws, including corporate laws, taxation laws, leasing laws, fair trading laws, superannuation laws, workplace relations laws, occupational health and safety laws and many others. In addition to the legislation drafted by the Government, franchise relationships are subject to the principles of common law and equity as developed by the Courts in considering cases. The parties to a franchise relationship will also be bound by contract law and any contractual rights and obligations contained in the relevant agreements between them. There can be several

such agreements, most notably the contract between franchisor and franchisee, known as the franchise agreement. Further, there may be a contract granting occupancy rights such as a lease or licence agreement and there may be contracts between the franchisee and third party suppliers, customers, manufacturers and the like. The different laws described above will determine the way franchise documents are drafted, negotiated and entered into. They will affect the way a franchisee conducts their franchised business, and will influence if, how and when franchise arrangements will come to an end.

COMPETITION AND CONSUMER ACT 2010 AND AUSTRALIAN CONSUMER LAW The CCA and ACL commenced on 1st January 2011 with the main aim of creating one law to consolidate the consumer protection provisions of the TPA and the various State and Territory fair trading legislation. They cover general standards of business conduct, prohibit unfair trading practices, regulate some types of business to consumer transactions and provide basic consumer guarantees for goods and services. That means that consumers can expect the same type of protection and businesses have the same types of obligations irrespective of where they are located within Australia. The CCA is federal law, and is administered and policed by the Australian Competition & Consumer Commission (ACCC), an independent Commonwealth statutory authority formed in 1995 to act as a consumer rights watchdog and

35


Raynia Theodore

protection organisation. The ACCC has wide powers to investigate and penalise companies and individuals for breaches of the ACL and CCA. The CCA is a complex piece of legislation and is home to an abundance of laws on many issues relating to business. The parts of the CCA which are most relevant to franchising are those which prohibit misleading and deceptive conduct, unconscionable conduct, and those relating to anti-competitive conduct, including price fixing and third line forcing. Since the introduction of the ACL, there are also new consumer guarantees that all businesses must be aware of.

Third Line Forcing Third Line Forcing is prohibited by the CCA and prevents a party from forcing a second party to source certain goods and services from a third party as a condition of agreeing to contract with the second party. In a franchising context, this provision would make it illegal for a franchisor to make it a condition of the franchise agreement that the franchisee purchase products from a specified third party supplier. There are some exemptions to this principle, including where the third party supplier and the party requiring the supply (the franchisor) are related parties. There are also provisions in the CCA that enable a person seeking to engage in Third Line Forcing to effectively obtain the permission of the ACCC to do so. This permission can be gained through what is known as a ‘notification’ or ‘authorisation’ and a public benefit must be demonstrated before such permission will be granted.

Price fixing Price fixing is serious anti-competitive conduct which is not tolerated by the ACCC and the Courts. A recent notable example of such conduct was the cartel in the packaging industry for which Visy was held accountable. The CCA forbids competitors to agree to

36

fix, control or maintain prices, discounts, allowances, rebates or credits in relation to goods or services. This can affect franchisors by preventing them from setting certain minimum prices (including retail prices or discounts) at which their franchisees must sell the products or services of the franchised business in circumstances where the franchisor also competes with its franchisees by having company outlets. It can also affect franchisees. If two or more competing franchisees in the same system get together and agree to sell their goods and services at the same price, this would contravene the price fixing provisions of the CCA.

Unconscionable conduct and misleading or deceptive conduct The CCA provides that corporations must not engage in conduct that is unconscionable. The CCA also provides that corporations must not engage in conduct that is misleading or deceptive or is likely to mislead or deceive. Although separate concepts, unconscionable conduct and misleading or deceptive conduct are often pleaded together in franchise litigation. Franchisors are often accused by franchisees of breaching one or both of these sections in the representations made by the franchisor to the franchisee as part of the marketing and sales process prior to the franchisee buying the franchise. Franchisees also risk violating these provisions if, in their dealings with their suppliers or customers or with the franchisor they engage in unscrupulous behaviour or misrepresent information.

Consumer guarantees under ACL Consumer guarantees under the ACL are based on the same core principles as the implied warranties and conditions that existed under various State and Territory fair trading legislation and the TPA, but aim to set out the obligations of

businesses in a clearer way. While no significantly different implied rights or obligations were created by the ACL, the implied warranty for goods to be of merchantable quality has been replaced with an implied warranty for goods to be of acceptable quality. Arguably this is a higher standard and may require additional vigilance on behalf of manufacturers and suppliers.

Breaches and remedies of the CCA and relationship with the Code The CCA underpins the Code. A breach of the Code is tantamount to a breach of the CCA, thereby giving the victim access to a wide range of remedies available under the CCA. If the CCA is contravened, there can be many civil and criminal consequences. The range of applicable sanctions include pecuniary penalties, in the form of fines, orders for payment of money (damages), restraining orders, nonpunitive orders (such as community service orders, probation orders, corrective advertising orders), orders varying contracts or refusing to enforce all or any contractual provisions. In addition, common law remedies may also apply, some of which go so far as to render void or illegal any agreement or contract that contains provisions which breach certain sections of the CCA. It is this relationship with the CCA which gives the Code weight.

THE FRANCHISING CODE OF CONDUCT REQUIREMENTS As explained above, the Code, being a mandatory set of federal regulations prescribed under the CCA, has the same status in Australia as legislation. This makes Australia one of only a handful of countries which has enacted specific, compulsory franchise laws to regulate the conduct of the key participants in franchising and govern the franchise agreement and other key documents. The Code, which is intended to ‘regulate the conduct of participants in


FRANCHISING AND THE LAW

franchising towards other participants in franchising’, applies to all franchise agreements entered into on or after 1st October 1998 in Australia. The Code contains a formula to establish whether an arrangement constitutes a ‘franchise agreement’. The definition contains four elements, all of which must be satisfied in order for a franchise agreement to exist. These elements are: • There must be an agreement (which may be written, oral or implied); • Under the agreement one person (the franchisor) grants to another person (the franchisee) the right to carry on a business of offering, supplying or distributing goods or services in Australia under a system or marketing plan substantially determined, controlled or suggested by the franchisor; • The operation of the franchisee’s business will be substantially or materially associated with a trade mark, advertising or commercial symbol essentially owned or controlled by the franchisor; • The franchisee is required to pay, or agree to pay, to the franchisor an amount of money for the right granted under the franchise. That money could take several different forms including an upfront payment, a fee based on a percentage of turnover, price of goods or services above their usual wholesale price or a training fee.

If each of the above elements of the definition of franchise agreement are satisfied, then the provisions of the Code will apply to the agreement between the parties.

refundable monies in connection with the franchise agreement:

Some of the key obligations imposed by the Code are outlined below:

• a copy of the franchise agreement in the form in which it is to be executed.

Disclosure Document The Code requires all franchisors to create a disclosure document in the particular form prescribed in the Code and to update the disclosure document annually within four months of the end of their financial year. The disclosure document contains many prescribed items of information about the franchisor and its directors and related entities, the franchise system and the existing and former franchisees. It is intended to give information to help a franchisee or prospective franchisee make a reasonably informed decision about the franchise and to give franchisees current information that is material to the operation of the franchised business.

Disclosure and joining process When recruiting franchisees and selling franchises, a franchisor must provide the following documents to a prospective franchisee at least 14 days before the prospective franchisee enters into the franchise agreement or pays any non-

• a copy of the Code • a current disclosure document

A franchisor must also obtain certain written statements from the franchisee before it may enter into a franchise agreement. These statements confirm: • that the franchisee has received, read and had a reasonable opportunity to understand the above documents; and • that the franchisee has either received, or been advised by the franchisor to seek advice from a lawyer, a business adviser and an accountant in relation to the above documents.

Cooling off The Code gives franchisees a right to terminate and exit a franchise agreement within seven days of the franchisee entering into the franchise agreement or making any payment under it (whichever is earlier). If the franchisee exercises its right to cool off, the franchisor must refund any monies paid by the franchisee, less a pre-disclosed amount to cover the franchisor’s reasonable expenses. The cooling off right does not apply to renewals or sales of existing franchises.

Prohibited provisions Whilst the Code does not prescribe what terms and conditions a franchise agreement may include, it does expressly prohibit a franchise agreement from containing certain provisions, namely: • a provision under which the franchisee gives a general release in favour of the franchisor from liability towards the franchisee • a provision which grants a waiver of any verbal or written representations made by the franchisor. The purpose of these prohibitions is to prevent franchisees giving up legitimate

37


Raynia Theodore

legal rights that may have accrued in the past.

Marketing, advertising or other co-operative funds If a franchisor operates a marketing, advertising or other co-operative fund to which its franchisees are required to contribute, the Code obliges the franchisor to prepare annual financial statements in respect of the fund’s receipts and expenses and requires the franchisor to have the statements audited by a registered company auditor. Both the financial statement and the auditor’s report must be completed within four months of the end of each financial year, and the franchisor is obliged to provide a copy of each document to its franchisees within 30 days of preparation.

This can be quite an onerous and costly process. The Code provides scope for the contributing franchisees to vote not to have the fund audited if they so choose.

has 42 days within which to give the franchisee written notice that the consent is withheld and the reasons why, otherwise the franchisor is deemed to have agreed to the sale.

The underlying purpose of these provisions is to ensure that franchisees know how contributions to the relevant fund are being spent so franchisees can have confidence that the fund is not being used on improper items.

Franchisors must not unreasonably withhold consent to a franchisee’s proposed transfer. This fundamental rule is an important protection for franchisees.

Transfer or sale of a franchised business Franchisees often decide to sell their business. The Code sets rules to apply if a franchisee wants to sell its franchised business. As one would expect, the franchisor’s consent is required. Consent must be requested in writing. After the request is made the franchisor

The Code sets out a number of circumstances under which it would be considered reasonable for the franchisor to refuse consent. This list of circumstances is not exhaustive and the franchisor may rely on other reasonable grounds for refusing consent and may even include such grounds in the franchise agreement.

Termination The Code sets out particular circumstances under which a franchise agreement may be terminated by the franchisor. There are three broad categories, including: • where the franchisee has breached the franchise agreement • where the franchisee has not breached the franchise agreement and the franchisee wants to terminate the franchise agreement • special circumstances which allow for immediate termination e.g. the insolvency of the franchisee, the franchisee abandoning the business. If the franchisor wishes to end a franchise agreement due to franchisee breach the Code requires the franchisor to give the franchisee written notice of the breach and a reasonable opportunity to remedy the breach, including specific instructions as to how to remedy the breach. In the case of immediate termination the franchisor may terminate the franchise agreement without the need to provide prior notice.

Dispute resolution Importantly, the Code provides that any franchise agreement entered into on or after 1st October 1998 is required to provide for a complaint handling

38


FRANCHISING AND THE LAW

procedure that complies with the Code’s dispute resolution procedure. If there is no such provision, a party to a franchise agreement is still entitled to invoke the dispute resolution process outlined in the Code. That process essentially entails initial discussions between the franchisor and franchisee aimed at finding a resolution of the dispute and, if that fails, mediation involving a mediator agreed by the parties or appointed by the Office of the Mediation Adviser. This is important given that statistics and research have clearly demonstrated the high success rate of franchise disputes being resolved through processes such as mediation.

Solvency statement and supporting documents Prospective franchisees need to be wary about entering into long-term relationships with franchisors whose financial viability might be shaky. Under the Code, a franchisor must include in its disclosure document,

a statement signed by at least one director of the franchisor as at the end of each financial year confirming whether the franchisor’s directors reasonably believe that the franchisor will be able to pay its debts as and when due. The director’s solvency statement must be supported by either copies of the franchisor’s financial reports for the last two completed financial years or an independent auditor’s report.

OTHER RELEVANT LAWS Although the Code and the CCA are the primary sources of law which relate specifically to franchising, there are many other legislative instruments that may apply to both franchisors and franchisees and may affect the relationship between them, including the following:

Corporations Act The Corporations Act 2001 governs the operation of companies and sets out the rights and obligations of directors and shareholders of companies. As such, the provisions of the Corporations Act

will apply to any franchisor or franchisee that is a corporation. It is an elusive piece of legislation and contains numerous obligations which are applicable to companies, such as those relating to financial reporting and audit requirements, duties of directors and the rules governing dealings with shares to name a few. Companies will be required to comply with the obligations imposed by the Corporations Act even if the requirements under the franchise agreement are less onerous or different.

Personal Property Securities Act 2009 (Cth) (PPSA) The PPSA came into effect on 30 January 2012 and is a new national system for the registration of security interests in personal property which includes virtually all personal property, except land and governs the creation, priority and enforcement of security interests in personal property. Under the PPSA, a security interest is any interest or right relating to personal

39


Raynia Theodore

property that secures payment or performance of an obligation. This security interest will then need to attach to the personal property to be enforceable and will need to be perfected to have priority over other security interests. This perfection will most commonly occur via registration on the national Personal Property Securities Register. If franchisors supply specific goods to franchisees on credit or if they lease goods to franchisees or enter into hire purchase agreements with their franchisees with respect to goods they need to consider protecting their interests in the specific goods and whether to register their interest in the goods. Franchisors should also consider creating and registering a general security interest against franchisees to better secure payments to be made by franchisees to the franchisor under the terms of the franchise agreement. Conversely, franchisees need to be aware of the limitations of their interest in any goods that have been supplied on credit or leased to them or supplied under a hire purchase arrangement and where a security interest has been taken, for example, over real estate owned by them.

Contract law The law of contract is a complex body of law based on common law principles developed by judges in hearing cases. Contract law principles determine the elements that must be present in order to prove the existence of a contract, whether the contract is enforceable, in what circumstances and in what manner the contract may be terminated and what will happen if one party breaches or purports to end the contract.

or licensee) will be governed by the applicable retail lease legislation that exists at State level throughout Australia. Parties to a franchise that involve retail premises must be aware of and comply with the obligations imposed by these laws. There will also be a different body responsible for administering such retail legislation in each State and different authorities will have jurisdiction to mediate or arbitrate over retail tenancy disputes.

Employment laws and OH&S laws Most franchisees have employees. The laws governing the employment relationship are ever changing and must be fully understood by franchisors and franchisees that employ employees. Likewise, franchisors and franchisees need to be fully conversant with occupational health and safety laws, given there are serious penalties for non compliance.

Retail tenancy law

Revenue laws

If a franchised business is to operate from fixed retail or commercial premises, a lease or other occupancy agreement will be required and the terms of that agreement, together with the relationship of the parties (including the landlord, tenant and any subtenant

Finally, all franchisors and franchisees have to pay taxes, whether income tax, GST, stamp duty, fringe benefits tax, capital gains tax and a myriad of other applicable taxes. Australia’s taxation laws are very complex and it is important that all business people

are properly advised as to their tax obligations, usually through a competent accountant.

CONCLUSION There are many laws which may apply to the participants in a franchise relationship. Sometimes the various laws contradict each other but most often they operate and govern the franchise relationship contemporaneously, forming an elaborate network of rules and obligations that the parties must be aware of and understand. It is not the intention of this chapter to mention all relevant laws, because different laws apply to different types of business. No person should go into business, particularly a franchise business, without obtaining advice from a competent lawyer and accountant. A failure to do so will inevitably lead to cost and angst if issues arise in the future that could have been easily dealt with at the outset if appropriate advice had been obtained. Advice from experienced professionals is critical. Raynia Theodore, Principal Mason Sier Turnbull Phone: Email: Web:

Funding your Franchise

hen entering into a business, one of the most important relationships to form will likely be with your bank. Having clear expectations and developing a strong relationship right from the start is one of the best moves you can make. The following article looks at what you as a franchisee can expect of your bank and conversely what is not unreasonable for a bank to expect of you. What’s fair to expect from your potential bank? “Why should I choose you over your competitors?” This is a common question that is often asked of lenders by potential clients and one that requires some explanation. People entering the business world do so for different reasons. So while this line of questioning is more often than not price driven, emphasis should be placed on the total relationship, not just the immediate and often minimal initial saving. Buying a business is a serious commitment. Decisions need to be based on both present and future needs. Ideally your relationship with your bank should be similar to the franchisee/franchisor relationship; a partnership offering mutual benefit to all parties. Your banker should become your trusted financial advisor, someone with whom you feel comfortable discussing all aspects of your business. When speaking with your bank, you should feel that you are being given honest advice that is relevant to the local business environment.

What is often overlooked is the importance of specialised franchise banking within business banking. A franchise business has a number of additional components such as brand, systems, training and support. These aspects make it a proposition that requires an understanding of the business model and the market. While taking out a simple, constantly reducing property backed loan can be viewed as ‘set and forget’, with little more than a decision to fix or float every few years – in reality, your franchise business will inevitably change over time and perhaps even season to season. You need a banking partner that can meet changing needs of your business. Your business banker should display: • A passion for customer service and genuine interest in your business and industry - with business connections that will benefit your business. • A desire to understand your goals and objectives, not only for your business but for you personally as well. • A thorough understanding of the industry and an ability to talk the same language as other industry participants. • Broad business acumen and a comprehensive grasp of finance concepts and banking expertise. • Accessibility, including multiple points of contact, within their team. • A proactive approach to better banking solutions for your business.

41

There could be other start-up bonuses to dealing with franchise specialists too. For example, some banks can fund accredited franchise systems for up to 65 per cent of the business purchase cost of a well-established system, without franchisees having to necessarily borrow against personal assets (subject to credit approval). There may be other benefits available to your chosen brand, which you should enquire about. Your banker should be able to help you work through and understand all the direct and indirect costs of financing your franchise, using a balance of your own equity and any bank funding. Whilst finance may be an essential ingredient to making your dream come true, ask your banker about other essential business services. These include merchant facilities, internet and telephone banking, business insurance and financial planning advice as well. You want your banker to work closely with you to give you financial, business and personal wealth advice, not just assistance with loans. The bank you’ve chosen should offer you a product suite that will meet both the short and long-term needs of your business, as well as meeting any plant or machinery needs you might have and can also deliver you other add-on benefits such as ongoing business education programs. You should feel like you and your bank are partners, with each playing a vital part in your business success. What’s reasonable for your potential bank to expect of you? • A demonstrated understanding of the key drivers of your business. • Specialist advice as well as the best financial products. • Access to specialists in fields such as merchant, insurance, asset and debtor finance. • The ability to recommend other financial partners such as an accountant and solicitor.

42

How do you know that you’ve chosen the right bank? Hopefully you have chosen a bank that specialises in the franchising sector. You need a bank with franchising knowledge who will understand the current climate and the dynamics that will affect your franchise, as well as sector-specific business acumen to make the process smoother.

By now you’ve done the leg work, read all the industry magazines, trawled the internet and worked out what you’re good at and where your passion lies. No doubt you may have visited a trade show or two, met with a few franchisors or business brokers and made the decision that the franchise business world is the right direction for you. The next step is to complete your due diligence and look to finalise your purchase. This is the point where


funding your franchise

looking to a bank for funding becomes a reality. For many people, looking for finance can be a daunting task, especially if they’re not accustomed to it.

Expect your banker to ask you questions You want your banker to work closely with you to give you financial, business and personal wealth advice - not just assistance with loans. Be prepared with as much information as possible to answer your banker’s questions. The more expensive the business, the more in-depth the level of information required should be. The most effective business bankers will want to develop long-term relationships with their clients and have the ability to ask them the right questions to make them think about the way they operate their business. They will take the time to understand client needs and aspirations, and then apply their knowledge and understanding of business to develop the right solutions for them. Your bank should ask you for a loan application form. The information required will vary from lender to lender, but will generally cover basic personal and business information including: • A statement of position - in simple terms this is what you own and what you owe. This is required to gain an understanding of your financial position. A prudent lender does not want clients over committed. They will want to understand what you are prepared to put on the line and what personal financial strength is being brought to the table. • Personal information - this allows a full credit check to be done with your permission and will incorporate you providing copies of photographic identification. If you are new to a bank, there may be additional requirements such as current bank statements. • Business information - including your company name, physical address, incorporation number, director’s and shareholder’s structure and IRD

number. This will also allow a check of any security interests that may be registered against your company. • Financial accounts - in the case of purchasing an existing business, there is an expectation of seeing the past two year’s accounts, along with a cash flow projection suited to your own personal position. This is where franchise business information can often differ as some sites are frequently new. It is recommended that an independent party be involved in the preparation of cash flows, preferably an experienced accountant. In either situation, it is important that you understand the projections and can explain them. If you as a borrower can’t understand the what, how and why of your business, then expect your banker to take a closer look at your suitability as a candidate for borrowing. • A brief business plan - explaining what the business is, how you intend to fund it, who will work in the business and what your expectations of return will be. While specialist

franchise lenders will often have a good understanding of a number of systems, you should understand and be able to communicate your own business proposition. • A copy of your franchise agreement - sometimes done at settlement, dependent on the origination and complexity of the document. • A copy of your lease - if applicable. Remember that you are looking to make a long-term commitment, so all the factors need to be right to ensure you have the best possible chance of success.

How to

Survive and Thrive in Your Franchise Business

Greg Nathan, Founder, Franchise Relationships Institute (FRI)

O

need their tolerance and support, and maybe even some practical help from time to time.

Let’s start with long hours, staff problems, unexpected ongoing expenses, difficult customers, inadequate sales and competitors sniping at you.

A strong support network can make all the difference to your success, because they will help to keep you persevering when times are tough and you feel like giving it all away.

wning and managing your own business sounds great doesn’t it? Being independent, having flexibility on how you spend your time and getting to keep all the money you make. While there may be some truth in this, there is another side to running your own business.

What’s that I hear you say? “But I am going to be a franchisee with a proven system, and I’ll have a franchisor that will help me with all these things.” Not so fast. Franchisee or not, you will still have to deal with these challenges. While a franchisor may provide some additional training and support, ultimately you are responsible for making the business work. Systems don’t drive themselves, staff don’t manage themselves and customers don’t sell to themselves. To succeed, a business has to be managed. Here’s some tips to help you maximise your chances of success.

Surround yourself with a good support team First make sure your family are fully on board emotionally. They need to know that you are likely to regularly be engrossed in the business, working crazy hours with high stress levels as you get your mind around how it all works. This means you’ll

Also make as many friends in the franchise system as you can. Keep in touch with the people you did your training with and get the names and numbers of experienced franchisees who are happy to have a drink and a chat with you from time to time.

Make customer satisfaction your mission Think of a business you’ve bought something from that has impressed you. I bet you dealt with positive people who were focused on looking after your needs. The cheapest and most powerful way to get and keep customers is to turn every existing customer into an advocate, someone who enjoys doing business with you so much they want to share the experience with others. Here’s a secret. Most businesses spend huge amounts of money advertising to attract new customers when all they really need to do is look after their existing customers. Make customer satisfaction your mission. The extent to which a business is customer focused is always a reflection of the owner, which brings us to the next tip.

Create a positive culture As the owner and leader of your business, the culture will largely be a reflection of you. Culture is “how we do things around here” and it is caught more than taught. Staff will subconsciously take on board, and even mimic your attitudes, beliefs and behaviours. So if you want to have a business that is full of positive, energetic, customer focused people, you need to be one of these yourself. This means looking after your health, keeping your thinking positive and taking time to get to know your team. Also encourage your team to get to know each other. A team that likes each other and works well together will perform at a higher level on all measures of productivity. Regular short daily or weekly meetings can work wonders in

46

keeping a team motivated, informed and engaged.

Stay close to the metrics Every business has several key performance indicators or KPIs that reflect its financial health, which we’ll define here as strong profitability and cash flow. A good KPI is like a canary in a mine – it is sensitive to disaster before it strikes you down. For instance, three of the most important KPIs in our business are the number of proposals we submit, the number of projects we complete and the satisfaction ratings our clients give us. Why these? Firstly, most of our proposals are accepted so we know the best way to generate sales is to generate proposals. Sales are critical to profit. Secondly, we don’t get paid until we complete the work so this is an

important indicator of cash flow. Thirdly, most of our work comes from repeat clients and referrals, so happy clients lead to more future business. We also measure the usual KPIs relevant to all businesses such as sales and expense to sales ratios. Every business is different so work out the important KPIs for your business and measure these at least weekly. Also ensure you create monthly Profit and Loss reports so you know how profitable your business is. Every successful business person I know stays close to these types of metrics.

Have a clear purpose and goals I love journey analogies as they sum up beautifully so many aspects of life. Your business journey is going to have ups and downs and you are going to meet many interesting characters along the


how to survive and thrive in your franchise business

way, some helpful and others not so. One of the most important things you’ll need to learn as a business owner is who to trust, because everything is often not what it seems. Someone who seems like they have your best interests at heart may well be out to ransack you. And someone who appears to be tough and uncompromising may be doing this for your own good. (They are sometimes called franchisors). A journey needs a meaningful destination or destinations that represent success. Decide what success looks like for you. Write it down in as much detail as possible. Also think about the nature of the journey you want to have and the type of people you want to travel with. Write it all down on a sheet of paper and keep this close. Whenever you feel discouraged or like it’s all getting too much, pull out this sheet of paper and read it. If you have gone off track make the necessary corrections. If you are on track be grateful. Unexpected things happen on journeys. That’s what makes them journeys. Successful travelers accept, adjust, accommodate and then keep going.

A final tip on the franchise relationship I wish you well on your journey to business success. Apologies if I’ve temporarily dampened your enthusiasm, but unmet expectations are probably your biggest enemy in terms of your personal morale and developing a good working relationship with your franchisor. So let’s make this a final tip. Be clear up front on what your franchisor can and cannot do for you. The franchisor has their own business to run and can’t be responsible for running yours. While they are there to support, guide and encourage you, ultimately it’s your business. And isn’t that what you wanted in the first place?

Asset

Protection

and Taxation

W

hen you establish a franchise business, you have the choice of a number of business structures through which to run the business. Each structure has its advantages and disadvantages. The most appropriate structure for you will depend entirely on your circumstances and intentions. Therefore there is no universal “best structure”. Your franchise business structure options include: • Sole Trader • Partnership • Company • Trust

PARTNERSHIPS

The different business structures are briefly described below.

A partnership is the relationship that exists between two or more persons (individuals or entities such as companies or trusts) carrying on business in common with a view to a profit. As with the sole trader, each partner in the partnership is personally liable for the debts of the partnership so each partner’s assets are at risk. This means that if it is individuals who are partners, the individuals’ personal assets, for example, once again the family home, are at risk. The profits and losses of the partnership are split in accordance with the profit share agreed by the partners.

SOLE TRADER This is the simplest structure available, an individual carries on a business without setting up a separate legal entity. As the sole trader you run the business in your own right (albeit often using a registered business name). This structure makes you as the business proprietor personally liable for all debts, meaning that people to whom you owe money can recover the business debts from your personal assets (for example, your family home). For sole traders all business income is declared as part of their individual income tax return.

COMPANIES A company is a separate legal entity, distinct from its shareholders. Companies are owned by shareholders, and directors are responsible for

49


Jamie Bishop

their management. Operating and maintaining a company is relatively costly compared with a partnership or sole trader. A company provides the benefit of limited liability (which sole traders and partnerships do not), meaning that the liability of shareholders is limited to their capital invested.

TRUSTS A trust is a separate legal entity that is governed by the terms of its trust deed (similar to the constitution of a company). By law, a trust is required to appoint a trustee. The trustee can either be an individual (or individuals) or a company. If the trustee is a company, this structure provides the advantage of limited liability in much the same way a company does. If the trustee is an individual the individual’s personal assets are at risk. There are a number of different types of trusts. The most common type of trust is a discretionary trust (often referred to as a family trust). This type of trust enables income to be distributed to a range of beneficiaries (usually family members) as set out in the trust deed.

SETTING UP A STRUCTURE The right time to choose and set up your business structure is after you have decided to establish your franchise business but before you enter into any franchise agreements or other contractual arrangements. This is because it can prove expensive to change the structure after you have signed a franchise agreement. If, for example, you decide to operate as a sole trader, and accordingly sign the franchise agreement in your own name, but then decide to set up a company or trust, new franchise documents will have to be drawn up and this could prove expensive. You should also be aware that some franchisors insist on a particular structure. Any such restrictions imposed on the business structure will be set out in the franchise agreement.

50

Within my practice I have franchisees using each of the possible business structures. Each situation must be assessed on the facts of that situation. Overall, in recommending a business structure the objectives I try to take into account are: • Simplicity and ease of operation • Flexibility • Protection of assets, both business and personal • Minimisation of income tax • Minimisation of capital gains tax Unfortunately, these objectives sometimes conflict. For example, the structure that is most simple and easy to operate is not necessarily the structure that will provide the best tax benefits. So let us consider each of the objectives and how likely they are to be achieved using the different business structures.

Simplicity and Ease of Operation Almost everybody understands the concept of running a business in their own right. All that is required to set up as a sole trader is the registration of a business name in the state of which you are operating – and even this is not necessary if you are operating under your own name. The cost of registering

a business name is about $100. This contrasts with the cost of setting up a company and a trust which, depending on the type of trust, could be in excess of $2,000. Many people struggle with the concept of a company and the fact that although it is their company, it is a separate legal entity from the individuals. Similarly, many people struggle with the concept of a trust and trustee and the fact that with this structure there is one operating entity although there are two entities (the trustee is the legal owner of the business whilst the trust is the beneficial owner). A sole trader is undoubtedly the simplest structure and the easiest to operate. It is also the least costly to establish and maintain.

Flexibility By flexibility I am referring to the ability to get taxable income to those persons most suited to receive that income. Sole traders and partnerships offer little or no flexibility. With a sole trader, all income must go to the sole proprietor, and in a partnership the income must be distributed in accordance with the partnership agreement. A company also does not provide much flexibility. Salaries can be paid to people who work in the company, but the remaining profits must be distributed


ASSET PROTECTION and TA XATION

company’s assets (not the individual’s assets) that are at risk. When using a company your risk - the individual’s risk - is limited in theory to the amount you have contributed to the company. I say “in theory” because in practice that limitation does not exist if you as an individual give personal guarantees on behalf of a company. Usually when you are entering into a franchise the franchisor will insist on getting personal guarantees from you if you use a company. Further, the landlord of premises will seek your personal guarantee if your company enters into a lease and the bank will seek a personal guarantee for any loan that is made to your company. This reduces the practical benefit of the limited liability of a company. Notwithstanding this, the use of a company (with or without a trust) usually provides the best asset protection, albeit limited when personal guarantees are given. Irrespective of the structure that is going to be used to operate the franchise business, there are often steps that can be taken to protect assets. For example, in a case of a husband and wife, it is possible for one spouse to take the risk and for the other spouse to hold the assets. Thus, if a company is to be formed, one spouse can be the director (and therefore probably the guarantor) and at risk, and the other can perhaps hold assets. to shareholders in proportion to their shareholdings. A discretionary trust on the other hand provides the maximum flexibility. Each year the trustee of the trust can determine how much money, if any, each beneficiary (as named in the trust deed) is to receive. Distributions can be made to a wide range of beneficiaries, even to children below the age of 18, but the amount of income that can be distributed to those children without paying maximum marginal rates of tax is limited.

Protection of assets I have already pointed out that when operating as a sole trader, or when individuals are in partnership together, it is your – the individual’s - assets that are at risk. Everything that is in your name is potentially at risk. The same applies when you personally are the trustee of a trust. However, when the business is operated by a company in its own right or by a company acting as trustee of a trust, then it is effectively the company operating the business and it is the

If the family home is in the names of both spouses, it may be possible to transfer ownership of half of the home from the spouse who is at risk to the spouse who is not at risk. In some states in Australia this will require the payment of stamp duty, and in some states it will not. Generally, there will be no capital gains tax on this transfer because principal residences are exempt from capital gains tax. It may also be possible to transfer other assets from the spouse who is at risk to the spouse who is not at risk, but there may be capital gains tax and other costs.

Minimisation of Income Tax We all aim to pay as little tax as is legally possible. Further we all wish to defer the payment of that tax as long as possible. I am sure we could all think of better uses for our money than having it sitting with the tax office earning zero per cent interest. With partnerships and sole traders, the individuals receiving the profit must pay tax on that profit. The rate of tax on that profit will vary between 0 per cent and 46.5 per cent, depending on the level of income each individual has in their tax return. As the income level increases so does the marginal rate of tax. Companies, on the other hand, pay tax on their profits at a flat rate of 30 per cent. Any dividends then paid to shareholders are taxed in the hands of the individual shareholders receiving that income, but they get a credit (imputation credit) for the tax paid by the company on that income. Trusts do not usually pay tax. What usually happens is that trusts distribute their income to beneficiaries and the beneficiaries pay tax on that income in their own right. The beneficiaries (if individuals) will therefore pay tax at somewhere between 0 per cent and 46.5 per cent depending on their level of income. Any income retained by the trust is taxed at 46.5 per cent. In summary, a company or a discretionary trust usually provides greater opportunities to minimise income tax than does a sole proprietorship or partnership.

Minimisation of Capital Gains Tax There is in fact no such thing as capital gains tax. Rather, what happens is that income tax is paid on capital gains, but usually at concessional rates as compared to normal (revenue) gains. Generally speaking a capital gain arises from the sale of non-depreciating capital assets such as a shares and property. Sole traders, partnerships and trust are entitled to a general 50 per cent

52

reduction in capital gains on assets which have been held for more than 12 months. This general 50 per cent reduction is not available to companies. Companies pay a flat rate of 30 per cent on capital gains made. Therefore from a taxation perspective non depreciating capital assets should not be held in a company. On the sale of your business, given the correct business structure the small business capital gain tax concessions may be utilised. Using these provisions any capital gain on sale of a business can first be reduced by the 50 per cent general discount. The remaining 50 per cent can then be further reduced by 50 per cent by applying the active asset concession. This therefore reduces the taxable portion of any capital gain to 25 per cent. Further, and once again given the correct structure, it is then possible to avoid paying tax on that 25 per cent by doing one of a number of things. This can include putting the balance of the gain into superannuation or buying replacement business assets (usually another business). Having the correct structure at the start should enable you to take advantage of these concessions on the sale of your business. It is therefore often possible to pay no

tax on any capital gain that is made. It is also possible with an unsuitable structure to pay in excess of 40 per cent!

CONCLUSION There is no one ideal structure that suits all franchisees and franchisors. The most appropriate structure will involve a compromise between competing objectives. The cost and complexity of a structure should always be weighed against the benefits provided. It is important an appropriate structure is adopted from the start since restructuring can be a very costly and time consuming process. Professional advice received before you sign on the dotted line, from accountants and solicitors experienced in franchising, will ensure that you set up the structure that best suits your circumstances and objectives.

Achieving

Success

as a Franchisee

Ian Krawitz, Founder and Head of Intelligence, 10 THOUSAND FEET

T

see the number of hours you will need to put in and what times to the day, week and year you will be required to be hands on in your business.

he meaning of success and the satisfaction that goes with it is different to different people. Over the years I have asked hundreds of people what success means to them. For some success can be as simple as setting a goal and achieving it, for others success is all about being happy, for some success is determined by the money and the lifestyle it affords their family and for others it is determined by living to their values and principals. There is no right or wrong answer to what success means. The key in achieving success as a franchisee is having a clear picture of what you want to achieve by being a franchisee. Once you know what you want to achieve share it with family, friends and mentors and then hold yourself accountable to achieving that success.

No matter which system you step into, you’ll own your own business, so don’t expect to clock off at 5pm every day, but you can expect to work more flexible hours. Realise that you’ll need to put in the hard yards up front, as a franchise usually takes up to three years to hit a return on investment of over 25 per cent. There are many franchise systems that require less time input and are structured in such a way that will allow you to ‘coast’ at certain times, when your lifestyle is a greater priority than your business.

Keep in mind that achieving a good work/ life balance does not sit in a silo. Achieving a good work/life balance goes hand in hand with earning a financial return that accommodates your financial commitments. If the financial return does not stack up you will just end up working more hours to achieve the financial return you need.

Broadly speaking most prospective franchisees will deem themselves a success if they achieve one or all of the following four items. Ask yourself which of these is most important to you, as the first step in your journey will be matching the right franchise opportunity up to what you want to achieve.

2. Financial returns 1. Work/Life balance

If your lifestyle is paramount, consider the work/ life balance you want, and select a model that fits your expectations and enables you to achieve the success of having a great lifestyle. I have seen some franchise systems with franchisees who work on average 30 hours a week and others where the average is over 70 hours per week. So do the work on each system you are reviewing to

If you measure your success in business by the money you earn you will want to strongly consider the return on investment you can achieve. Not all franchise systems are created equal when it comes to financial returns. So if this is your most important aspect, research which systems provide the greatest revenue, profitability and have the greatest saleability when it comes time to exit your business.

53

3. Looking good to friends and family

Although few will admit to it, many want to appear successful to family and friends. If this is you, look for businesses with a good brand name, good brand values and great marketing communications. These are the external elements which your friends and family will see.

4. Being able to bounce out of bed every morning

In the majority of franchise models you will spend the greatest part of your waking hours during the week at work. If it is important to you to be able to get out of bed and look forward to the day at work, rather than simply being motivated to get out of bed by the financial returns that it will reap, you need to find a brand and product/service you can get passionate about. You’ll also want to find a product or service your customers can get passionate about as this will rub off on your day to day experience. To see if you can get passionate about the brand and customer experience, take yourself mystery shopping and go through the experience yourself.

Once you have become a franchisee - It is time to set more granular goals. From successful sports people to successful business people, goal setting is a way of life. What makes a goal SMART? Goals that are: Specific Measurable Achievable Relevant, and Time orientated When it comes to setting goals, work with your franchisor to set targets. I’m not just talking revenue targets or profitability targets, but also targets for your goals such as the number of hours you work a week and leading key performance indicators (KPIs).

54

Examples of leading KPIs include marketing targets, where you may need to drop off 5000 promotional flyers a week in order to bring new people through the door, or to make 100 phone calls a week to potential customers in a service based industry. Others may relate to driving customer behavior, where your aim may to be to have a customer service rating from repeat clients that is above 80 out of 100, or be able to process each job within one working day so your service is convenient to customers. Others may relate to your personal goals, that you need to have an additional $5,000 per month of ongoing income to employ an admin assistant to free up your weekends which are being spent on paperwork. Each business will be different and often each location will have its nuances. Work with your franchisor and professional advisors, as well as asking existing franchisees in order to set targets that are achievable.

Creating a positive mindset Once you become a franchisee, maintaining a positive mindset is crucial. Many successful franchisees will tell you that attitude will determine up to 50 per cent of your success.

There are very few people who are fortunate to say they spend 100 per cent of their day doing things they are passionate about. The good news is that there are many things you can do to strive to get close to that state of passion, as well as being able to view the items you don’t particularly enjoy in a better light. Take stock of things you enjoy about your day to day work, write down all the things that give you a buzz and make you feel strengthened as a person. Then write down all the things that you don’t particularly enjoy, that sap your energy and leave you feeling frustrated. You are in a great position being your own boss to do something about what percentage of your time is spent on each activity. Try to do more of the things you love and delegate the things you don’t enjoy to staff members or outsourced service providers. Surrounding yourself with positive people is another important element. Most people will have moments when they don’t feel quite so optimistic about a situation or how their business is tracking in comparison to their goals. If you surround yourself with negative people, that moment can become a significant period of time, leaving you drained of energy. Positive people help to get you feeling positive again, come

only be in the form of salary increases or bonuses, simple thank you cards show how much you appreciate their work. A positive work environment can be clearly seen by clients and friends and creates ties on many levels that will have them recommending your brand and your business.

up with solutions to get you back on track, and are great to share the good moments with.

The importance of getting human resources right in your business As a business owner, if you want to grow your financial returns, work a consistent number of hours, look good to friends and customers and stay passionate about what you are doing one of the most important tasks you’ll face is employing and managing people. That’s why it is important for you to undertake this task with all of the knowledge and care that the franchisor used to select you as a business owner. From an internal perspective if you want to be able to delegate important tasks and responsibilities to staff, you need to feel comfortable with the calibre of person you are delegating to. If you can’t get to this point you will either not be able to delegate and be unable to grow your business as effectively, or delegate to someone who isn’t suited. In both instances you will end up stepping back into the business to take care of the work, taking you away from other important tasks that help you to grow your business and meaning you work long hours that affect your work/ life balance. Both paths are avoidable through quality recruitment.

When you’re looking at purchasing a franchise business it is important that you do the due diligence and consider whether the franchisor has human resources recruitment tools and training programs to help you manage your future staff. From studies we have done at 10 THOUSAND FEET we see that within the franchising industry the amount of time senior staff remain employed is very low. Surprisingly, managers hired by franchisees measure their employment in months rather than years, 45 per cent of managers have tenure of six months or less. The underlying cause of this staff turn is inconsistent and/ or ineffective recruitment practices. Along with this, is not setting the proper expectations of the role and the working environment. So what are some of the best practices you should be aware of to build up a successful team of people able to help you achieve success? The key to attracting and retaining great staff is a great working environment. Setting clear goals and expectations and measuring them on a regular basis will keep everyone focused on achieving a common vision. Rewarding employees for a job well done will enforce how much you appreciate and value their accomplishments. Rewards need not

It is important your staff perceive your business as a professional business, not a hobby. Your staff will appreciate it if you are well-organised and a comprehensive training program is part of that. Many franchisees ask: “Why should I put time and money into training my staff when they leave within six months?” But what if you don’t train them and they stay? Choose staff with the potential to be longer term team members for extra training. Whilst highly trained staff will certainly improve efficiencies in your business, also remember that training staff leads to more satisfied staff. For staff, this satisfaction comes from knowing they are picking up valuable skills and growing in their area of interest. Satisfied employees will also speak highly of you as a person and your business as well and act as great ambassadors to customers in the local community and potentially other prospective employees. With more than 500,000 staff employed by over 70,000 franchisees in Australia you can imagine how powerful the word of mouth of employees is. Valued and happy employees are enjoyable to work with, are far less likely to change jobs and, therefore, will be around to build the trust to delegate tasks to and allow you to put yourself in key areas to drive your business or to have flexible hours and achieve a great work life balance.

ulti-unit franchising was once considered an alternative route travelled by entrepreneurial and ambitious franchisees, investing heavily in the major systems. These days, multi-unit franchising has emerged as a clear pathway, across all sectors of the industry, for franchisees looking to take the next step in their franchising journey. Many systems, particularly retail and staff-operated service franchises, are strategically set-up to encourage multi-unit franchising. Just because you are a top performing franchisee in your system, does not guarantee you right of passage into multi-unit franchising. Most systems will have restrictions and eligibility requirements in place with regards to multi-unit franchising, so it is important to check these clauses in the Franchise Agreement. For example, some franchises which are modelled on the franchisee carrying out all of the actual work, do not allow multi-unit franchising. Those that do allow or even promote multi-unit franchising may require you to undergo additional training before taking on additional units, as the skill set is different for managing across several businesses. You should also note that all systems will require the franchisee to be in 100 per cent compliance with the system and relevant codes before considering them for multi-unit franchising. All new and potential franchisees should look at the possibility and requirements for multi-unit franchising, right from the due diligence phase, to consider it an option as part of succession and expansion planning. Even if you initially just want to

buy one site, you never know where your business may lead you, and one day, you may decide to buy another one or more franchises in the same system. From a franchisor’s point of view, the benefits of multi-unit franchising are many: • It’s a great way to reward/recognise the stand-out franchisees within the group; • It reduces franchisor’s costs in searching for new franchisees; • It reduces the recruitment risks for the franchisor – they are proven performers; • It’s a great way to keep franchisees engaged with the system and motivated; • It can also speed up the franchisor’s expansion plans.

key drivers of the business? Am I able to implement a solid management structure? Am I able to successfully manage, recruit and develop my team? Am I able to delegate roles and responsibilities? Am I able to implement successful local marketing initiatives? Is customer service a major focus? Do I have strong financial planning skills? Andrew Clarke, an FCA Multi-Unit Franchisee of the Year 2012 finalist, was able to tick all those boxes. Andrew owns two Quest Serviced Apartments’ properties in Western Australia. Multi-unit franchising was always part of Andrew’s plan. He took on his first franchise Quest West End in 2004 and his second Quest Rheola in 2005. He is currently looking to take on a third property. Andrew says his success in being a multi-unit franchise owner all comes down to having a workable management structure and a strong management team behind him.

Benefits for the franchisee are: • You already know how to run the business;

• You have greater buying power and can drive better deals from suppliers.

• You can provide better opportunities and clearer career pathways for your staff;

But not all franchisees are suitable for multi-unit franchising. Managing multiple sites requires a different skill set from managing one franchise site and working across several businesses requires a mind shift from working ‘in the business’ to working ‘on the business’.

• You have an opportunity to expand while also reducing the costs associated with establishing a new franchise business; • You are able to deliver operational efficiencies/synergies and associated cost savings in the areas of administration, training and staffing etc; • You will have the capacity to market and run promotions across your stores with greater impact, reach and

Ideal multi-unit franchisees OK, so your initial franchise business is successful and you are looking to expand by re-investing in an additional site in the same system. Before you approach your franchisor, you need to ask yourself the following questions: Do I have a good understanding of the

“My goal is to empower my management team to be able to make better decisions, and for them to be confident in their decision-making, and eventually be able to pull myself away from the day to day running so that I can take on another Quest Property.” Andrew says that another benefit of becoming a multi-unit franchisee is that you are able to contribute to the network on a more meaningful level. “I have been a member of the Quest Service Apartments Franchise Advisory Committee for the past five years. We meet in Melbourne four times a year and part of the process at those meetings is to reinforce that we are part of the network, and to act and provide advice to fellow franchisees in accordance with that. I also attend all the meetings, conferences, and seminars, and provide active input. I was in Adelaide last week

with two staff members, attending a training session. It’s all part of being part of a franchise network.”

Franchisor’s requirements Quest Service Apartments is clearly a franchisor that offer multi-unit franchisees the highest-level of franchise operational support which allows its multi-unit franchisees to focus more on business and financial performance indicators. At Tatts Lotteries, multi-unit franchising was encouraged and a key part of the network expansion strategies. Potential multi-unit franchisees were proactively identified from within the network and approached to assess their level of interest and any training requirements to ensure they met the qualification criteria. This resulted in a pool of preapproved franchisees which were ready and willing to take on more sites. They were regularly informed about new sites on the horizon that enabled Tatts to get stores up more quickly and with reduced risk. Franchisors need to ensure they have clear policies, procedures and criteria for selecting multi-site franchisees and dealing with expressions of interest from within the group. They need to establish a clear set of requirements/criteria for becoming a

multi-site franchise. How will you say ‘no’ if someone is not suitable? What additional skills/experience would they need to acquire or what additional training will they need to do?

people of all walks of life to pursue their dreams, and franchisors as a group can pool their resources, so they have the power of big business but with the energy and drive of small business.

The franchisor needs to also look at the following:

This ‘pooling of resources’ also applies to multi-unit franchisees and helps to lower their overheads per business and increase their overall profitability.

• What is the maximum number of sites that would be permitted per franchisee? • What are the management requirements for the additional sites e.g. do you require the franchisor to appoint a nominated manager to each additional site and will the managers be required to attend franchisor training e.g. Franchise Induction Program? • Will you require all multi-site franchisees to attend ‘train the trainer’ training? • How will you manage the multi-site franchisees e.g. will each site be managed individually by the relevant (by area) Franchise Support Officer (FSO)? This may mean that some multi-site franchisees will have different FSOs. Alternatively, will you manage their group of sites collectively with the franchisee?

Multi-unit franchising replicates success Franchising offers the opportunity for

In most well developed systems, as long as the franchisee is strong on sales and customer service, they will be successful. If they are also businessminded and entrepreneurial, the transition to multi-unit franchisee may seem a natural business progression. With the right support from the franchisor and the appropriate skill-set and mind-set from the franchisee, the move can be profitable for both parties. For those systems that make it work, multi-unit franchising is a natural extension that fits the fundamental franchise formula, of replicating a successful business, perfectly.

Transform

Yourself for Success

Tania Allen, Founder, Vision Alliance

magine just for a moment that you were given an opportunity to improve your current business, in a simple and easy to follow way that could help you take it to a new level, a new level that perhaps you have only ever dreamed about. What would that look like for you? How much would you be earning? Where would you be living? How many days would you be working? and how many days would you be doing the things you want to and love? Being in business can sometimes be quite overwhelming. You know you can achieve outstanding results, and you hear people say making money has never been easier, and as much as you feel you so richly deserve success, you are just not sure how you can rack up the profits, maximise your potential and have more money and more time to do the things that you love. The beginning of a new month, quarter and year is always an opportunity to make a fresh start in your business. It’s always recommended at this time you take a half or full day to review what you’ve previously done, from the good to the not so good and go through some simple questions. What results do you want in all key areas? What are you going to do differently? What needs to change completely? What could be completely removed from your business and your life that hasn’t contributed to creating positive results? Having worked with hundreds of business owners all over the world and studying with and learning from

some of the most successful business people in the world today, I thought I’d share with you just some of the key ingredients that have contributed to their transformation and success.

Adopt New Empowering Beliefs If you believe you can, or if you believe you can’t, you are probably right! This statement is the key to manifesting your dreams or not. Many of us have beliefs that hold us back and limit us from achieving our fullest potential. No matter what is going on around you it’s essential you hold your beliefs in a positive light. These beliefs lead to the specific actions we take, productive or not so productive. Creating constant movement yet no progression. Working longer hours, you feel only more overwhelm and anxiety as your efforts do not appear to be producing the results you want or deserve. You can achieve more momentum and success simply by embracing a shift into more positive thinking patterns. Beliefs are the opinions, the evaluations and everything of the world we hold as true and that we no longer question. The good news is these beliefs are simply our perception of the world around us and they can be changed. Moving beyond your limiting beliefs is a crucial step one must take in order to become successful or achieve higher levels of success. First it’s important to learn how to identify the beliefs that are holding you back and secondly they must be replaced with positive and more empowering beliefs to support you in the future.

accountable for producing results. A preparation day is when you prepare and plan for a best results day by learning a new skill, training staff, delegating tasks etc. Preparation days ensure that your best results days are as productive as possible. A rest and recreation day is a day that’s completely free of business meetings, business related phones calls, cell phones calls, emails, or work related documents. Introducing this system into your schedule will help you become more efficient, productive and ultimately will help you produce more with less effort.

Take Consistent Daily Action Take 100% Responsibility for Your Success Responsibility put simply means your ability to respond. How you respond to situations is a choice. If you want to be more successful you must take 100 per cent responsibility for everything you experience in your life. Every time you catch yourself blaming people and circumstances that are outside of you, for the things you are getting or not getting in your business and your life, ask yourself; how did I contribute to this? How could I have responded differently? When you take responsibility for your success, you will see more, be more and have more.

Know What You Want What do you want to accomplish? What experiences do you want? When do you want it by? Where do you want to live? What type of relationships do you have? How’s your health & fitness? How much money do you want to earn and keep? In short what does success look like to you? One of the main reasons why most people don’t get what they want is because they haven’t decided what it is they truly want. They haven’t defined

62

their desires, their goals, the things they wish for, clearly and concisely. You’ve got to know what you want; it’s that simple, if you want to achieve success.

Re-Define How You Manage Your Time The world has entered into a new time zone and one of the most difficult adjustments we have all had to make is in our fundamental concepts and beliefs about the management of our time. You’ve only got to observe the very successful, to see they know how to create superior results yet still manage to maintain a balance among work, family, and fun/recreation in their lives. If you look deeper into how they achieve this, you will find they use and follow a unique planning system that structures their time into three different kind of days which are prescheduled to assure the highest return for their efforts while still managing to have enough time to do the things they love. A best results day has you focusing 80 per cent of your time in your core genius in other words your primary area of expertise. To be successful you must schedule into your calendar more best results days and hold yourself

More than often we as a society are expecting to achieve change and success literally overnight. The sad thing is, the majority are not willing to put in the effort that is required to achieve consistent and long term success. Success and satisfaction comes from considerable consistent action and momentum. When you break down the word satisfaction the last six letters spells ACTION. The key is when you have an inspired impulse to take action, do it now. Ray Kroc the founder of McDonalds said, “There are three keys to success; 1. being at the right place at the right time, 2. knowing you are there and 3. taking action.”

Aim for 1 per cent By taking consistent action every day and aiming for just a one per cent every day improvement you will be amazed at how much can be achieved. Over the course of one year that’s a 365 per cent improvement without even taking into consideration the compound effect. Imagine if you increased your revenues by just per cent every day. What about one per cent improvement in other key areas of your business and your life? What would that do for at the end of


transform yourself for success

one year? What about at the end of two years? What about five?

Be Bigger Than Your Circumstances You have a responsibility to be bigger than what you are. Why not step out of your comfort zone and start playing a bigger game. You are far bigger than your circumstances. Dream big and go for it. You have a responsibility to share your vision, your purpose and your message with the world and as a result you will transform yourself and your business. It’s easy to play small and fall victim to your circumstances. I challenge you to be bigger than your current circumstances. You will thank me one day.

Adopt an Attitude for Gratitude How simple is it to be thankful for what you have right now? Be thankful for the lessons you have learned and for the path that you have walked. No matter how hard it’s been there is always an upside. Sometimes we may not see it at the time, I guarantee you though, when you wake up everyday with a grateful heart you will achieve more, attract more and be more than you ever thought possible. Start off your day and end your day by being grateful for at least three to five things in your life.

Focus on your health and wellbeing I’m the first to admit I could do a lot better in this area. When we are healthy in our mind, body and spirit we have a different kind of energy that’s more

focused, and balanced. Many business owners neglect this area of their life and tend to put it in the background of priorities. As a new season approaches, commit to a healthier, mind, body and soul. Eat healthier meals, exercise regularly and meditate on a daily basis. Meditation will help you gain more clarity, reduce your everyday overwhelm and allow you to perform at your best.

Build a powerful support team Let’s face it. We simply cannot do everything in our businesses. As much as we like to think we can, it’s important to ensure you are replaceable and others can do your role.

good half a day to review them all in a constructive and productive way. Plan for your next level of success. Write down the necessary actions steps required to achieve what you want and remember the one per cent rule. It doesn’t always have to be perfect, you just have to be consistent in what you do and they say; Progression is always better than perfection.

All high achievers have a powerful team of key staff members, consultants, vendors, and helpers to support them in their journey. It is almost impossible to be strategic and tactical at the same time. Allow others to shine in the key areas you may not. This will free up time for you to focus on what you do best.

Time to Take Action Your ideas, the knowledge you gain and the goals you set are useless unless you apply what you learn and know. Action is the key part to the equation. I encourage you to answer every question I’ve asked you throughout this article. Take a

FCA

The

Franchise Council

of Australia

T

he Franchise Council of Australia Limited (FCA) is the peak body for the $130+ billion franchise sector in Australia, representing franchisors, franchisees, service providers and advisors to the sector. The FCA is a nationally incorporated not-for-profit association with a National Head Office based in Melbourne, Victoria. The FCA assists all stakeholders in the Australian franchise sector in a variety of ways, to ensure the sector is a vibrant place to do business. Membership of the FCA is voluntary and is open to any individual or organisation involved in the franchising sector, including; franchisees, franchisors, lawyers, accountants, banks, consultants, academics, publishers and many more. Whether the FCA is offering advice on best practice franchising, educating government on policies affecting the sector, promoting franchising in the media or providing professional development services to its members, the Association does its part to make the sector a positive, sustainable place to earn a living. The FCA is closely affiliated with franchising associations around the world, and is a founding member of the Asia Pacific Franchise Confederation (APFC). It is also a member of the World Franchise Council (WFC) and for 1999 and 2000 was the secretariat for the World Franchise Council.

MEMBERSHIP BENEFITS Membership in the FCA has numerous benefits: • Credibility – maintained through our member standards and the Franchising Code of Conduct. • Professional support – through education

64

programs, networking opportunities and regular events. • Representation – ensuring members’ voices are heard by governments, regulators and other important groups. Membership also means solidarity. FCA members belong to an association where their peers work together for the betterment of the sector. Members share a common method of doing business – not a common business. For this reason, franchisors, franchisees and suppliers can freely exchange ideas without fear of losing their competitive edge. The FCA currently has more than 650 franchise systems and suppliers in its membership base – about two thirds of the total franchise systems currently operating in Australia. This strong commitment to belonging demonstrates the relevance and value brought to the sector by the FCA.

MAJOR SERVICES AND INITIATIVES The FCA recognises that its members have different needs and that different types of members should co-exist harmoniously. The success of franchising depends on successful franchisors, and this, in turn, depends on profitable and happy franchisees. The FCA works constantly to ensure that all activities and services which benefit franchising will benefit the broader community – including franchisees, franchisors, employees and their local economies and communities. As well as commitment to the highest industry standards, the FCA facilitates a number of services and initiatives to assist in promoting and advancing the role of franchising in Australia, as well as supporting its members.

The FCA Franchise Academy

Franchisee Success Club

TThe FCA Franchise Academy is the primary access point for relevant, franchise-specific and small business education programs and resources for its members. The Academy endorses a number of quality education providers, active within the franchising sector delivering franchisors, franchisees, franchise consultants and suppliers the best education programs available.

The Franchisee Success Club acknowledges the breadth and depth of achievement among franchisees in the Australian franchise sector.

The Franchise Academy is focused on both franchise-specific and generic business skills training and education for pre-entry, in-market and succession (exit) for all organisational levels.

The Franchisee Success Club is a wonderful opportunity for franchisors from large and small systems alike to recognise the performance of their exceptional franchisees.

Further to this, in 2012 the Franchise Academy, in partnership with the Institute of Certified Franchise Executives (USA) launched the Certified Franchise Executive program in Australia. It is the only internationally recognised professional accreditation program for franchise executives and is known and respected by franchise leaders around the world.

To find out more visit the website at www.franchise.org.au/franchiseesuccess-club.html.

Launched in 2011, this world-first initiative from the FCA highlights and celebrates the incredible untold stories of the best and brightest among the 70,000 strong franchise community in Australia.

Franchisee Forum In 2007, the FCA announced the first Franchisee Forum as a way for franchisees to meet and discuss issues, ideas and future goals for franchisees within the Australian franchise sector.

The Franchisee Forum has an FCA nominated Chair and representatives from each State/Territory. The Chair has full voting rights on the FCA Board. The FCA is one of the worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s few franchising organisations to ensure franchisee representation and to provide member benefits for franchisees without charge â&#x20AC;&#x201C; so long as their franchisor is a member.

Supplier Forum Established in 2008, the objective of the FCA Supplier Forum is for suppliers to the sector to advise the FCA on what products and services they expect and need from their industry representative body. The FCA recognises that a franchise cannot sustain success without the assistance of the many and varied consultants, services and business systems they work with on a daily basis. Suppliers such as consultants, lawyers, finance, IR companies, software companies and many more, constitute

65


FCA the bridges that allow franchisors and franchisees to travel above the competitive landscape, on their way to a sustainable commercial advantage.

Women in Franchising Committee In 2007, the FCA announced the introduction of the Women in Franchising Committee (WIF), dedicated to promoting and advancing the achievements of women in franchising and small business. The aim of the WIF is to increase female participation in franchising. It is a professional, organised group within the FCA that provides women inside and outside the sector with information and encouragement, as well as genuine opportunities for contribution, networking and professional development.

The National Franchise Convention The FCA hosts the annual National Franchise Convention. The Convention brings together the Australian franchise community – including successful business people, CEOs, Government officials and industry advisors – to enjoy education, networking and business development opportunities. Traditionally a three day event, the National Franchise Convention also includes a trade exhibition where suppliers to the franchise sector can showcase their products and services.

Excellence in Franchising Awards The Excellence in Franchising Awards recognise and reward companies and individuals within the Australian franchise sector and provide a platform for entrants to showcase their achievements on the national stage.

Hall of Fame The Australian Franchise Hall of Fame was established in 2003. During its creation, the selection panel searched back to the origins of franchising in Australia and, by a meticulous process of elimination, identified the groundbreakers, influencers, quiet achievers, selfless contributors and outstanding performers who endured the trials and laid the foundations of the sector’s current success. Now, it is members of the Hall of Fame itself who induct new entrants. The sole criterion is an outstanding contribution to franchising – whether as a franchisor, franchisee, academic, lawyer, consultant, politician, financier – whomever.

FCA MEMBER STANDARDS Members of the FCA receive many benefits which help businesses keep informed and connected with the franchise sector and facilitate education. One of the hallmarks of a reputable sector is a commitment to high standards of personal and professional conduct. This enhances public perceptions of franchising, helps safeguard the investments of franchisors and the businesses of franchisees, protects franchise networks from unfair or unethical attack and provides guidance for those seeking to commence their franchising journey. The FCA encourages its members to maintain standards of conduct worthy of franchise sector professionals. The Member Standards are designed to provide members of the FCA with an authoritative guide on acceptable standards of conduct.

Success at the Awards can increase brand recognition, customer enquiries and media coverage. It can also boost company morale and help attract the best talent to companies.

The FCA believes the Australian franchise sector to be well regulated with the Franchising Code of Conduct (the Code) allowing for affordable, efficient dispute resolution procedures and disclosure provisions to assist and guide the sector. It also considers that the relationship between the franchisor and the franchisee can be developed even further with ‘Best Practice’ guidelines in the form of FCA Member Standards.

The Excellence in Franchising Awards ceremony is held in conjunction with the

FANZ

Franchising in New Zealand Graham Billings, Executive Director, Franchise Association of New Zealand

T

he franchise sector of the New Zealand economy is substantially larger than most people realise. The number of units operating with business format franchise systems has increased considerably since 2003 when a major survey was conducted. The Franchising New Zealand 2010 survey conducted by Massey University, Auckland and Griffith University, Queensland found 423 active franchise systems in New Zealand compared with an estimated 350 in 2003. The survey also estimated a total 23,600 franchisee units, which was a 92 per cent increase over the seven years. The most recent survey, Franchising New Zealand 2012, however, found that system growth had slowed in the previous two years and that there were now approximately 446 active business format franchise systems. Whilst the number of franchise units had fallen slightly to 22,400, the level of employment in the franchising sector had grown by more than 25 per cent to over 100,000 people. The franchise model is operated across all sectors of business. In New Zealand, franchising has comparatively fewer businesses in the retail sector compared with many other countries, but is comparatively stronger in home and business-tobusiness services. Indicative of the entrepreneurial spirit of New Zealanders, approximately 88 per cent of franchises operating here are home-grown and despite the economic situation, there are some franchise systems that are still experiencing growth. Franchising in New Zealand continues to play an important role in the economy with an estimated

contribution of between $19.4 billion and $21 billion in turnover.

The Franchise Association of New Zealand If you are looking for a business opportunity or needing advice on franchising, our recommendation is that you don’t sign anything until you have asked the question: “Are you a member of the Franchise Association of New Zealand?” Members of the Franchise Association are the franchise professionals, committed to uphold ‘Best Practice in Franchising’ and the Association works hard to promote the benefits of dealing with members, both for those looking to purchase a franchise and also those who need to gain professional advice. The benefit of FANZ membership for franchisees was recognised in the New Zealand Prospective Franchisees Survey*. The survey found that 75.7 per cent of prospective franchisees considered membership of FANZ important or very important, when considering a franchise to buy into. As the peak body for the franchise community in New Zealand, the Association makes representations to Government on issues of concern to franchisors and franchisees including such issues as proposed legislation; new business support programmes and business taxation. The Association often conducts email surveys of members on key issues to gain valuable feedback prior to making a submission.

help you need to become successful. As a prospective franchisee, an important part of your due diligence should be to establish whether or not the franchise you are considering is a Member of FANZ. Don’t be misled by a statement such as, “we are not members but we abide by their Codes”. There have been several reports of this in recent times where something has subsequently gone wrong in the relationship but we have been unable to assist the franchisee, as we have no powers to intervene unless the franchise is actually a Member. Of course, there are franchise systems such as McDonalds who are currently not in membership but who operate ethically and provide valuable business opportunities for the prospective franchisee. In all cases, however, you should ask the franchisor to explain to you why they are not members. For a franchisor to gain membership of the Association requires that they submit their documentation for scrutiny to ensure that their Franchise Agreements contain all the elements required under the Association’s Codes and Rules. Some of the key elements that are required are: • Full and proper disclosure of matters important for a prospective franchisee to know and understand; Unlike a number of other countries in the world, including Australia, franchising in New Zealand is governed by the same commercial laws as any other business. In 2008, the Ministry of Economic Development called for submissions on the possibility of introducing franchise specific regulations following a high profile fraud case. In 2009, however, the Minister of Commerce concluded that there was no need at that time for the introduction of franchise-specific regulations and went on to say that that there was little evidence of widespread problems in the sector. He drew attention to the Franchise Association of New Zealand’s (FANZ) Code of Conduct

68

as an area where self regulation was working. Despite the substantial difference in the regulatory environments between New Zealand and Australia, the two 2012 surveys show remarkably similar levels of franchising disputes.

Buying your New Zealand franchise Buying the right franchise can have many benefits over the stand-alone business, not least of which is that you can potentially purchase into a franchise system that has a proven track record and one where you will receive all the

• A seven-day cooling off period before a prospective franchisee is finally committed to the purchase; • A requirement that the prospective franchisee produces a certificate their solicitor to the effect that they have had the agreement explained to them – or a signed statement that they have declined to take independent legal advice; • If things go wrong, compulsory mediation by a FANZ appointed experienced franchise mediator as a first step in dealing with the issue. The Association’s independent Scrutineer carries out compliance


franchising in new zealand

checks on a biennial basis to ensure that documentation maintains the standards that are required.

and Code of Ethics to ensure that as a franchisee you undertake to maintain “Best Practice”.

Carrying out your due diligence on every aspect of your intended franchise system is vitally important. The New Zealand Prospective Franchisees* survey found that over 70 per cent of prospective franchisees met with three or more franchisors before making up their minds and nearly 75 per cent talked to three or more franchisees of their intended franchise system as part of their decision making process.

In addition to standards and compliance, franchisors, franchisees and service provider members gain much from membership to the Association. Apart from the significant marketing advantage of being able to use the Association’s logo as a sign of credibility, membership also opens up a whole range of opportunities to advance their knowledge and learn from the experience of others. This is a unique advantage not available to non-member franchise systems and was clearly demonstrated at Annual Conferences where first time attendees regularly comment that they are amazed by the amount of advice and information that was freely exchanged by members.

If your franchise system is in membership, you have the ability to make a formal complaint to the Complaints Panel if you believe that your franchisor is in breach of the Association’s Codes or Rules. The Complaints Panel is fully independent of the Board of FANZ and its members are experienced in franchising both from a legal and practical standpoint. If your complaint is upheld, the franchisor can be required to rectify the situation or face a range of penalties that are contained within the Association’s Code of Practice. If the franchise you are going to purchase is from a Member of FANZ, you too will be required to sign up to the Association’s Code of Conduct

As a Member or the franchisee of a Member you have the opportunity to enter the prestigious annual awards, which culminate in a gala awards dinner in November each year. These awards are based on an internationally recognised business excellence system and not only provide you with the opportunity to showcase your business, but also gain valuable insight into the opportunities to improve your business from the feedback reports

provided by the evaluators. There are entry categories for both franchise systems and franchisees and winners regularly use their success in marketing campaigns.

Exporting Your Franchise to New Zealand For an Australian franchisor coming into New Zealand it is a relatively straight forward process from a legal point of view. Most systems that come into New Zealand from Australia set up a local company both to protect intellectual property in New Zealand as well as to ensure a ‘foothold’ in New Zealand. It is important to get trademarks registered in New Zealand as early as possible. It is not an expensive process but should be considered well before actually arriving in New Zealand. If the Australian franchisor is operating directly in New Zealand then the franchise agreement should be reviewed by a New Zealand lawyer and made subject to New Zealand law and to New Zealand jurisdiction for ease of franchise rights enforcement. Reputable Australian systems that come here ensure that they have a disclosure document that is relevant to New Zealand circumstances as well as a cooling off period etc. A number of Australian systems have made, as a key feature of setting up in New Zealand, an early application to join the FANZ especially as the FANZ requirements for disclosure differ in some ways from those required under the Australian regulations. Proper disclosure documents, cooling off period and mandatory mediation as a dispute resolution process are all part of the voluntary Code of Practice to which all FANZ members are required to adhere. It certainly enhances the reputation of the system operating in New Zealand. Obviously, if a Master Franchisee is appointed in New Zealand then having that franchisee become a member of the FANZ is likely to be perceived as a system which respects

69


FANZ

the maintenance of high standards. In spite of a minority of lawyers and accountants seeing franchising as something akin to the Wild West, the vast majority of lawyers, accountants and business brokers throughout New Zealand have a reasonable understanding of franchising and the benefits it can bring to franchisees. There are a growing number of lawyers, accountants and business brokers who specialise in franchising. There is still a good deal of education to be undertaken for the public about avoiding doubtful franchise systems, but the trend is for specialised business brokers to promote healthy systems and to steer people away from the moonlight operators. The majority of the banks in New Zealand now have a strong presence in the franchise industry and bear in mind that all the major banks in New Zealand are Australian owned. There are reputable franchise consultants in New Zealand with well-established track work records and for anyone who attends the annual FANZ conference it is manifest to observe that there is a strong and proactive congeniality within the franchise industry in New Zealand. There are a small number of dedicated and respected franchise consultants in New Zealand who can be invaluable in modifying systems coming into this country. Involving their use can considerably diminish the likelihood of a legal claim being brought against a franchisor coming across from Australia. Be aware that employment laws in New Zealand are similar to Australia and dismissing staff is not an easy process. Also New Zealand has an act called the Resource Management Act which, coupled with the Building Act, means that obtaining building consents for shop fit outs can be slow and expensive. It is vital to stress the need to do plenty of homework. Obtaining sound taxation advice is essential before coming into New

70

Zealand. There is a withholding tax system for payment of royalties and other fees from New Zealand to Australia but there is plenty of advice available from accountants who understand the taxation laws between the two countries. It is important to remember that GST applies to everything in New Zealand (even food items) and the tax structure here is somewhat different from Australia. For a start there is no such thing as stamp duty. The government Kiwi Saver superannuation scheme requires contributions from employers to be made when employees opt in to the scheme. It is also important to know that we have the Personal Properties Securities Act which is a system of an on-line registration of all charges (e.g. what used to debentures for companies) against both individuals and companies as security for monies lent and where goods and services are supplied on credit. New Zealand has recently been named as the fifth highest ranking country based on the United Nations Development Programme which has

regard to the standard of living of its people, its population’s access to knowledge and its population’s chances of living a long and healthy life. There are many success stories for Australian systems entering into New Zealand. A point to remember, however, is that the disposable income of New Zealanders is not quite the same as that of Australians. Having said that, the lifestyle differences between Australia and New Zealand are not significant and so long as the homework and planning are done carefully then there are good prospects for Australian systems to enter into New Zealand and becoming successful.
