South Coast Hand Therapy

"Overtime our business has grown and become more and more successful. With that we have brought a lot more staff on board. That also meant a lot more assistance was needed. Accounting Professionals have been able to help us with all those things."

Brett Haig, Principal, SCHT.

The Challenge

South Coast Hand Therapy is a specialist hand therapy practice treating hand and wrist injuries from a hand rehabilitation view. Unfamiliar with running a business, Brett and Niki Haig relied heavily on Accounting Professionals for all their tax, accounting and business advisory needs. As the business grew so to their reliance on Accounting Professionals.

After putting plenty of blood, sweat and tears into the business for more than 20 years, Brett and Niki were keen to see their business continue in the hands of someone as passionate about the business as they were. Someone willing to put the effort in to learn, and keen to stick with the business for a long time.

Coming from a public health background Brett and Niki were not familiar with how to start or run a business when they commenced in August 2000. 

As a result, they relied on Accounting Professionals to assist and guide them through the entire start-up process. Even more so in the ensuing 20 years as the business grew from strength to strength.

“When we opened, we had relatively small goals. We wanted to make enough income to match what we earned as public therapists.”

The Solution

  • Business planning, systems and processes
  • Tax and Accounting 
  • Negotiate sale of practice

 

“We have found them always approachable and easy to access. Often there are things we need to know with a relatively short turnaround time and they’re always available to answer things promptly and explain things to us so we understand it clearly and can implement into our business.”

“They listen to what you want to do and are guided by what you want to achieve. They also have the background knowledge to make it happen in a way that is effective and efficient and gets really good outcomes for you as well.”

The Results

  • (Rollover into Super) Small Business CGT concessions
  • Maximise sale price
  • Maximise earnout
  • Dividend payment plan

 

“Accounting Professionals have helped us from when Brett was a sole practitioner, to moving premises, employing staff, having staff on maternity leave. They have guided us through all that and right up to now when we are looking towards our retirement goals.”

“They’re helping us sell our business to someone who is going to keep it going for us in the long run.”
