Your Business Phases

  • Phase 1 - Survive

    Still very much in the start-up and survival stage, a business in Phase 1 provides a salary to the business owner, who typically focuses on systems, cash-flow, growth and access to capital. External advice and assistance is primarily from banks and accountants.

  • Phase 2 - Corporatise

    More than providing a salary, the business is beginning to yield a return on investment. At this stage, the business owner should be looking to pave the way to corporatisation.

  • Phase 3 - Thrive

    The business is commercial, profitable and sustainable, and will typically occupy multiple locations. Many listed companies (or businesses close to floating) will be at this stage.

  • Phase 4 - Realise

    The business is mature and the business owners are seeking to exit, and preparing the business for sale. We lay the foundations for a successful, profitable exit, and the rewards are often intergenerational.

  • No matter how successful we are in life, no matter how confident we become in our own abilities, no matter how much we learn or earn, we should always welcome great advice from an experienced professional. [MORE]

  • Our Cairns group of companies grew very quickly and although we had a good relationship with our local Cairns accountant our group needed another level of sophistication. [MORE]

  • I have used ST for ten years for three different companies as well as my personal tax affairs. I remain a very happy client. During that time two businesses have been sold, an SMSF created and a number of other complex transactions have occurred. [MORE]

  • I have been referring clients to Snelleman Tom for 2 years now because they just get it. I've seen the passion for their work first hand and I love that they really care about every client.

    It's difficult to combine the big firm knowledge and depth of advice with the small firm service and attention to detail but Snelleman Tom have done it.

  • As relatively new investors, it's been great to meet John and his team of financial advisers. We find it really useful to dedicate some quality time to a financial discussion that we wouldn't normally have the rest of the year. We are not extremely wealthy nor have complicated arrangements, but we feel positive that we are on the right track with our personal investment strategy and that we are being pro-active about our financial position to ensure a great future for us and our children. I would highly recommend Snellerman Tom for personal financial advice.

  • Martin Kerrigan from Snelleman Tom has provided me with strategies to become a 'Thought Leader' within my business and industry. This improved focus has benefited our business in many different ways; from placing urgency on issues such as combining overseas and locally sourced production; to conversations and action with clients and prospects on rising costs, and to my daily leadership of sales and marketing operations.
