Franchise Payroll Essentials.


A financially literate business owner is more likely to be in control of their business. By understanding financial reports and basic accounting concepts they will be able to make smarter decisions about the business.   

However, research by ASIC indicates that many Australians don't have the financial literacy skills they need to make informed decisions. This research also reveals that almost 50% of people find dealing with money stressful and overwhelming. 

It's possible to get started in business with limited financial skills, especially in a franchise. However, the ability to grow a business and be profitable requires financial literacy. This will help franchisees take more responsibility for the financial aspects of business and increase their chance of surviving. 

They don't have to run every aspect of accounting and bookkeeping. But knowing the basics of accounting means they can interact with financial professionals in a better way.

Every business owner we've met has been keen to improve their financial literacy and get more from their figures. 

The Financial Confidence Workshop was developed as a result of clients telling us their franchisees wanted to understand more about the financial aspects of their business.
