Asset Protection Strategies


Fail to prepare, prepare to fail. Why put hours, days, months and years of effort into building a profitable business without taking the time to ensure its value is protected? Asset protection is one of those bleak conversations you don’t want to have – but need to. Once your small business has its asset protection strategies in place, you’re ready to re-focus on growing your business.


What is Asset Protection?

Asset protection falls under the umbrella of loss prevention, and is a legally sound framework that protects your business from any nasty surprises.

These could be:

Asset protection strategies are an important discussion to put on the table with your financial advisor. Creating a sound structural framework around you ensures your protection and the protection of your assets from seizure or loss. 


What sort of assets can I protect?

  • Property
  • Plant & equipment
  • Superannuation
  • Your business itself

In this day and age, just about anything you value can be legally protected.


Who needs asset protection?

Business asset protection is a vital consideration for any established business. A considered business structure helps to reduce your personal exposure to creditors or lawsuits, while protecting the business you’ve worked so hard to establish. If you value your business and quality of life, asset protection is a no brainer.

What our clients say

Mel and Marks Cleaning Services Adelaide - Client of Growth IQ

As a fast-growing business, we found ourselves in a situation where we needed to get up to speed on the business operations, finances and cash flow. We knew we needed an accounting firm to do more than just prepare our BAS’s and Tax Returns and tell us how to stay out of trouble. We needed a team with the capability to take on several key financial functions and consult with us on a regular basis. From day 1, Growth IQ have taken the time to learn our business, Mel and Mark’s Cleaning Services, and become our external CFO that asks us the tough questions. Their team has brought financial expertise to us and is letting me focus on our service offering.
