Buying Opportunity for Small Businesses as entering covid normal

Buying a small business during Covid can be the start of a new adventure.

There is no argument its been a tough 2020 year.

Small business owners will reconsider if they wish to continue to post Covid

Some small business owners will make the heartbreaking decision its time to move on after getting through a big 2020. For some small business operators will want to move to secure employment or retire. There will also be those small businesses that are for sale which may have been on the market before covid hitting and now will resume their sale campaign.

Either way, small business sellers may be keen to exit their business and looking for a quick sale as lockdown ends. This can impact in both a positive way and also has some traps for potential buyers

On the upside when considering buying a business is now the time might be right . The business sale price might be right for a bargain. But with every deal comes some unknowns.

Look carefully before buying

The buyer must take the time to review the business financials carefully.

Previous published financials and turnover results might not apply some nine months later. Small businesses may have lost market share, so look at the financials carefully. Understand what has taken place in the business pre and post covid. Don’t just take the owners explanation, seek information yourself and look at what is, has been and what can be capitalised on to expand and develop new opportunities.

Covid 19 has also opened up an opportunity. A tired business may also be a business that can easily be pivoted for new adaptions. A business that isn’t online may be calling out for someone to take it to the web and mail order. A smart business operator will look at a business not only what’s on paper but also what can be redesigned once you sign the contract. Importantly look at the businesses sales and market. Do these customers still exist? Are they willing to buy and does the potential business have the opportunity to deliver?

As a small business accountant, we can help you analyse a potential business and look beyond what a seller may present in a set of financials.

We are here to help you explore your opportunities and help you capitalise on what Covid 19 has encouraged people to do. Adapt and do things in new ways. This time  is where starting a business as we enter Covid normal will allow you to be part of the playing field that is now wide open to explore.

Contact Geoff on 95979966 and let us look at your potential business purchase.

Does the subdivision of land create a capital gains event?

Many suburban homeowners often consider the option of subdividing their Block and undertaking property development. We are seeing lots of enquiries from property holders looking at undertaking a small development somewhere in Bentleigh to Brighton. This trend is continuing despite covid and the economy going through unchartered times

Scott Cam and the show” the Block “enthuses home onwners and rental property owners evaluate their options. Many have started to dable as a result of the program the Block

The tax implications of subdivision

We are often asked does the subdivision create a capital gains tax liability!

The subdivision will create two separate titles but at this stage, unless they are sold no cgt liability arises. This doesn’t mean tax wont arise. Your tax liability will happen when you now sell the subdivided property.

The subdivision effectively splits the land cost into two. Therefore depending upon what the land has been used before the split, will be determined what cost base calculation should be adopted moving forward.

Many small developments arise due to the decision to knock over the family home or existing rental property. Depending upon your circumstances and your intention with the property will determine how to recognise the cost base for tax purposes

Those undertaking a development may also have a mixture of both capital gains tax and general income tax. This is as a result as the nature of the assets has now changed

Good news is that the costs of subdivision may also be included in the calculation for the cost base

Plan so you get your tax exposure right!

Having a plan before undertaking any small development helps you clarify your tax position . Such as how the Taxation Office may treat you for tax .Whether one house of the development retains its “Principal Residence Exemption” (PPR) .And if you will be considered a taxpayer merely realising an asset or you are now considered a property development?

Property development is rewarding but seek advice to get it right!

Please seek professional advice as getting it wrong will have tax complications. Geoff specialises in helping small developers and builders in working through the the tax for property development . Contact us if you would like to discuss your project.

We also recommend talking to local real estate agents that understand the market such as Angelos Stefanis from Biggin Scott Elsternwick or Graeme Callen at Gary Peer Carnegie that uderstand these markets.

Caravan Park profit driver for profit is the parks occupancy rate.

Do you know what your tourist park breakdown of visitors is each year?

How often do you monitor your occupancy rate and the trends for your accommodation needs?

Understand why customers stay at your park

Studies have indicated that demand for tourist park patronage is mainly that from the domestic market. This will continue given the Covid situation with our borders currently closed.

• Couples and Singles: Domestic travellers aged under 35 currently represent 12% of the domestic caravan park accomodation

• Families travellers aged between 35 and 55 now account for 33% of the sector. Mainly from the domestic market

• Grey Nomads: These travellers are over age of 55 and accounts for 50% of the travel domestic caravan park patronage.

Domestic caravan and campers in 2018 are believed to have undertaken over 11.9 million trips. That’s results in campers staying 51.9 million nights. in caravan parks. In 2019 this again increased by 6.5 % Overall, caravan and camping visitors now spend more than $8.6 billion annually on camping. # Per Caravan Industry Association of Australia, Caravan and Camping State of the Industry, 2018.

Market segments understand your unique break up of accommodation options!

Understanding how these market segments impact on your park usage and revenue.

Better focus on your occupancy rate is an essential aspect of recreational park planning. Seasonal factors such as tourist events and weather also need to be factored into your planning.

Each market segment have a different requirements and impact on your revenue streams

Understand your market segments

Typically the under 35 markets predominately are campers. They may not be utilising Cabins. However many parks are providing upmarket experiences are fighting back for the market disrupters such as local B & B’s as they provide glamping experiences for young couples. Theses glamping experiences are tapping into a new market

Whereas your younger families prefer cabins for easy use of the accommodation.

The grey nomad markets will choose long term powered sites. Time is something they have and many live on retirement incomes not always focused on high value spending.

Take a look at your revenue streams and start planning for 2021 and beyond.

Using your caravan park management or accounting software will allow you to design and predict future income streams . These income streams can be classified for various income classes for park fees. It is crucial for you to understand your park numbers.

You must include analysis of seasons, repeat customers and future capacity and peak times. If your park is considering planning new accommodation options, we can assist you with financial modelling in this area.

Another way to manage revenue is to manage your channel partners.

Peak and non peak periods

Occupancy rates can fluctuate to above 100% and over capacity during peak time. And obviously a lot lower during winter times. Manging this with the right pricing and special deals like 3 for the price of 4 nights to entice campers to patronise the site usage in non peak times. These measures will help increase your overall occupancy rate.

Caravan Park management software is crucial

If your park is associated with a park chain such as Big 4 or Top Tourist, you will be obtaining bookings directly from their sites. Software like RMS can manage your channel partners such as bookings.com, Expedia and other sites. Utilising real-time bookings help you maximise your bookings and revenue streams.

As the summer season is upon us understanding your revenue streams, park accommodation capacity and ultimately future earnings will be crucial to managing your cashflow

We assist small business in monitor their cash and financial ratios and happy for you to reach out and discuss with you your needs. Please reach out. Over the years Geoff and his team have helped much small business hospitality and leisure business. Geoff has a passion for camping and regularly travels with his family to country caravan parks across Australia . He understands first hand what issues owners often face when running their park.

Helping small businesses survive is the Federal Government’s mission. Today, the Australian Government announced changes to the Bankruptcy law. This is part of the Government’s economic response to the Coronavirus.

These changes are temporary changes will be in place for six months from Friday  25th September 2020.

What are the temporary changes to Bankruptcy laws

The temporary changes to bankruptcy law are as follows:

  • Debt threshold for creditors to apply for a Bankruptcy Notice against a debtor. This threshold will increase from $5,000 to $20,000.
  • The good news is that the timeframe for a debtor to respond to a Bankruptcy Notice before a creditor can commence bankruptcy proceedings is to be increased from the current 21 days notice up to six months. Failure to respond to a bankruptcy notice is the most common act of bankruptcy. The time a debtor has to react to a bankruptcy notice will be temporarily increased from 21 days to 6 months. The extension will give a debtor more time to consider repayment arrangements. Delaying the time before they could be forced into bankruptcy.

These new measures will apply for six months.

  • Temporary protection period procedure available for debtors to prevent recovery action by unsecured creditors will increase from 21 days to six months.

While this is good news for struggling businesses, it can have implications for those trying to recover their debts. On the back of this news, we suggest that businesses review their ongoing customer credit arrangements.

Taking action against sole traders inline with the above will be difficult in the short term. Take the time to ensure you have a firm credit policy in your business. It is recommended to review this and limit your exposure to traders who may not be in a position to meet their short term obligations. Communication with your customers is essential at this time.

For more details, visit the Government’s website on Covid19 resources for stressed businesses.https://www.business.gov.au/risk-management/emergency-management/coronavirus-information-and-support-for-business/temporary-relief-for-financially-distressed-businesses

or visit our covid resources page for more details

Make sure you have an upto date business plan and constantly reviewing where you are going is recommended strategy during these tough times.

Always seek professional help if you feel you are financially unable to see a clear pathway in your business
