Compliance tips for investing in commercial property

The existence and nature of commercial property is shaped by investors. Likewise, the way these office buildings, shopping centres, retail stores, and many other types of infrastructure are used is shaped by those who manage their facilities. Calibre has been working with both investors and facilities management firms for years.

We have worked hard to get the best outcomes for many commercial property investors, cleaners, trolley-collectors, and other maintenance providers for a number of years.

We have also witnessed the extent of change in this industry. In recent years, there has been an influx of high net-worth individuals and groups investing in commercial property in Australia. This has been accompanied by an increased demand and scope of provision in the facilities management industry. If you are prudent, you have a plan to balance the demands of growth and complexities of compliance.

How do you remain compliant in a complex industry?

Both commercial investors and facilities management firms need to face new compliance and tax challenges.

  • If you are high net-worth investor, how to do best manage relationships between the owner and relevant parties such as estate agents, maintenance firms, strata, etc?
  • Have you chosen the smartest tax and asset protection structuring?
  • Is your plan for remaining tax compliant in regards to your investment and other finances making you pay unnecessary costs?
  • If you provide facilities management services, are your payroll systems up-to-date with changing regulatory demands?
  • If you provide facilities management services, have you calculated margins not only for your overall business, but also for each specific job?

You’ll miss opportunities to save money or grow your business by relying on generic advice.
