Our work for franchises

Cloud accounting for Pandora

Peter Luskan from Pandora came to us when he were about to open two new locations. They had been using a spreadsheet and a cloud based payroll system to run their company accounts. Using this system was not efficient for three franchise locations, so we helped them move to online accounting with Xero.

Moving to Xero let the business owners run and manage the books for all three locations in less time than they previously spent running the single location. Xero also opened up other efficiencies for them, such as being able to use Deputy, an online staff management tool which syncs with Xero software.

Frequently asked questions

What’s the fair value of a franchise?

Valuing a franchise is a complex process, and there is a huge number of factors which we need to consider. Fortunately for our clients, we have unrivalled experience in this area. We have valued over 1,000 franchises for NAB and ANZ, which means we can tell you with certainty what a franchise is really worth.

Are the royalty amounts market value?

Buying a franchise gives you the advantage of brand recognition and working within an established and successful business structure. However, you also need to consider the royalties you will have to pay to the head office.

As experts in franchise agreements and valuations, we can advise you on whether the royalty amounts represent good value for you.

Is the franchise agreement fair?

The details of your franchise agreement are incredibly important, and they can have a big impact on the success or failure of your business.

As part of your due diligence, we can review all the details of your franchise agreement and advise you on whether it is beneficial for you or not.

How much work will I have to do as the business owner?

Your work doesn't stop when you've purchased your franchise. The most successful franchisees are those who take a hands-on and active role in their business.

You should also consider your long-term business goals, including whether you will buy another franchise and your eventual exit strategy. We can help plan and achieve your long-term business success.
