In our business solutions module, Business Valuations are essential tools where you are thinking about buying or selling a business. The valuation can help you decide whether you are selling your business at the right price or whether you are paying too much when purchasing another business.
As part of our business valuation service Alpha Consulting Group can provide you with an indicative valuation of your business as well an in-depth analysis of any tax, commercial or other issues which are likely to effect the final sale price of the business. By identifying potential areas well in advance, we can work with you and your business to address any potential issues to maximise the value of your business and where possible, reduce the amount of tax payable on sale by taking advantage of any potential tax concessions or roll-over relief.
For those considering purchasing another business, we can also provide you with an indicative valuation of the target business and Financial Due Diligence (FDD) which is the process where we review the other business' financial information and structure to determine whether the financial information is credible and accurate as well as identifying any tax, commercial, legal or operational issues – before you buy it! This process also provides some confidence to financiers that you have considered all the risks associated with the purchase and enhance the application for funding.
If you are considering buying or selling your business contact us today for a free initial consultation.
How would you feel if everything you've worked for - for yourself and your family - was jeopardised? Many business owners unknowingly have their assets exposed and risk losing their wealth. This is often attributable to deficiencies with the existing business structures not effectively minimising risk. At Alpha Consulting Group we take the time to develop strategies with you to protect your assets from potential risks that you face now and in the future. Some of the major risks a business may potentially encounter include:
- Insolvency of the asset holder (Bankruptcy Laws)
- Divorce of the asset holder (Family Law Act)
- Ownership dispute (business partners)
- Will challenges and Estate disputes (siblings)
- Uninsured claims
Our Asset Protection strategies are designed to provide you with peace of mind, allowing you to focus on developing your business and net wealth. You cannot predict the future, good or bad, and it is for this reason steps should be undertaken to ensure your assets are protected, while maintaining maximum tax effectiveness and flexibility, this is why we at Alpha have come up with our business solutions module, to help you.

With the variety of lending products in the market, the financing of your business and/or your home could end up costing you thousands of (unnecessary) dollars.
Alpha Consulting can provide you with unbiased advice as to which financial product or loan is best suited to your needs. We do this by:
- Understanding what our clients want and the purpose of the loan
- Structuring the loan as tax effectively as possible whilst also taking into account your cash flow need
- Negotiating directly with lenders on your behalf or finance brokers to ensure that you are getting the best deal possible
Too often we have seen examples where clients have been quoted an interest rate by brokers only to find that the "real" effective interest rate is much higher than quoted, or the term of the loan longer than originally advised.
We also have access to financial software which allows us to check any quote you receive, to ensure that it the right loan for you.
At Alpha Consulting we can assist you by finding the best deal for you and your business in a fast and efficient manner. Some of the types of financing we can assist you with include:
- Home Loans
- Equipment Financing – Hire Purchase and Leasing
- Operating Leases
- Flexible Lines of Credit
- Review of existing finance facilities with your existing bankers
Whether you are buying a home, a business, or needing to borrow to purchase new business equipment, please give us a call to ensure that you are receiving the best deal.
