Meet our franchise accounting experts

We have worked with Liston Newton's Business Accountants and Advisory Team for over a decade. During that time, our business has grown substantially both organically and through purchases. This wouldn’t have been possible without Liston Newton Advisory to assist with our business planning, providing proactive advice and ensuring our accounts were always compliant in a complex and volatile industry.
Karsten Horne
CEO, Reho Travel
Liston Newton's Business Accountants analysed our financial and business situation and helped us implement strategies to improve our position. Their strategies turned our business from making a loss, to recording a 6-month net profit of 36 per cent. And we are now on track to show a 240 per cent increase in turnover over the next financial year.

SL Constructions
Liston Newton helped us move our accounting over to Xero. A Business Accountant managed the set up and training so we felt comfortable with the software. We now have all our processes streamlined which gives us improved visibility of our business performance. This has allowed us to open 2 more stores without a significant increase in administration effort.

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.
