Franchise business and tax

May 7, 2018

 

The Australian Competition & Consumer Commission (ACCC) is the government body responsible for enforcing the Franchising Code of Conduct, and if you or someone you know are considering entering into a franchise arrangement, this will probably be a good starting point to get an idea of what to expect.

 

The code imposes strict obligations on franchisors to make sure that franchise agreements are fair (you can use the search tool on the ACCC's website to find it).

 

It is a requirement that both franchisees and franchisors act in good faith in all their dealings with one another.  Another significant point that should be kept in mind is that penalties for failure to comply can be significant.  However, if you've got a plan and are determined to forge ahead, it is also good to know that from a tax point of view, starting and running a franchise business is broadly the same as starting and running most other small businesses.
