Asset Protection Strategies - CapitalQ

Asset Protection Strategies

The first thing we will ask you is –

“Are we planning to succeed, or are we planning to fail?”

Because we don’t want to assist you to proceed with a business venture, taking on risks, incurring costs, if you aren’t actually confident you can succeed.

But if you are, then we will go all out to help you succeed and then when you do, enjoy the spoils.

Having said that, we will always be mindful of the fact that things do still go wrong in business. No matter how good the business is, no matter how good a business person you are, sometimes things just don’t work out for all manner of reasons.

And if you are unlucky enough to find yourself in that situation, you want to know your structure and business processes have been established in a way to provide the best chance that your failed venture doesn’t absorb all of your hard earned, long-term wealth.

Now when it comes to asset protection, no one can ever give you a 100% assurance a strategy will be watertight. The truth is, the bankruptcy and liquidation laws have mechanisms that specifically get around many overt attempts to defeat Creditors.

Plus there will be transactions and deals you will enter over time that may eat into your defences. Each time you will evaluate the risks, and you will make a commercial decision as to the best way to go, but you can be certain, there will be times your guard will need to be let down, in order to get what you need.

That is why an asset protection strategy needs to start as early as possible. Ensuring any specific matters undertaken to assist with asset protection can’t be directly tied to an effort to defeat a known Creditor.

Similarly, asset protection is all about building barriers.

While no single barrier is likely to ever be able to guarantee 100% protection, each barrier combined with the next, established over time, enhances your ability to protect your hard earned long-term wealth.

What our customers say

Logo for Michael Gray
Duncan Melbin’s firm first became the business accountants for Exploration Data Services, and my Family, when he was still a Graduate Accountant some 16 years ago. Myself and my late business partner have followed him ever since!

In the early days Duncan was very proactive in regards to fine tuning our business structure and the benefits of getting the structure right early are still flowing today.

Throughout my time working with Duncan he has played a key role in ensuring our tax affairs have always been in order and our tax obligations have always been minimised and well managed.

Duncan has also played a key role in ensuring my Family and I have adequate wealth protection in place and that we have maximised our wealth creation including through a regular superannuation contribution strategy and the use of a self-managed super fund that keeps us engaged, in control and to a large extent free from the perils of the GFC.

More recently we took the opportunity to outsource our entire back office accounting function to CapitalQ including switching our accounting and invoicing to Xero. I now spend barely any time at all on my monthly accounting and Activity Statement lodgements, as CapitalQ have it all in hand. This allows me to focus on running my business better, and frankly to have more time to enjoy the spoils of a life in business.

I work closely with Kapil Bhasin, our Client Manager, and Peter Melbin, our outsourced Bookkeeper, and they are clearly very valuable assets for CapitalQ.

Working with Duncan, Kapil and Peter is very easy, they respond promptly to any queries I have and most importantly I have complete trust in the advice they give me and that my business affairs are being well looked after. I would recommend CapitalQ to any potential client without reservation.

So if you own a small business or are looking to grow your wealth I highly recommend you speak to the CapitalQ Team. They will give you good advice, and ensure you are on track for a sound business and financial future (and outsourcing your back office accounting process to them, and switching to Xero, will be two of the best business decisions you will make).
