Frequently Asked Questions

A voluntarily deregistering company must have nett assets of less than $1,000, so this naturally limits the value of a share sale.

However, the assistance with taking over the preparation and cost of the financial accounts, tax returns and all other compliance can be significant, as you will know from the company’s previous accountant and tax agent bills.

Where the company has already prepaid costs to your accountant / tax agent for work not as yet done, there will also be the value of recovering this prepaid money.

If your company is still eligible for a legacy 2020 Cash Flow Boost covid support grant, $10,000 could be paid for your shares so that you recover value for your company’s Cash Flow Boost eligibility.

We will take you clearly, step by step, through the process.
