Event description

Description

The next BDAV meeting in the eastern suburbs will feature several informative components: a presentation on the Residential Efficiency Scorecard by the DELWP, a presentation on succession planning by MGR Accountants, and presentations by the event sponsors, James Hardie and Bradford Insulation.

RESIDENTIAL EFFICIENCY SCORECARD

A representative from the Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning will talk about the Victorian Residential Efficiency Scorecard, a unique program that provides an energy star rating for homes. In the same way as a fridge or washing machine has a star rating, a Scorecard rating shows how much energy is used by different parts of the home, and provides a representation of the running cost of the fixed appliances in the home. This will guide home-owners to make home improvements efficiently and cost effectively.

SUCCESSION PLANNING

Part of running an effective business includes considering your succession planning strategy. Whilst you may not be thinking of retiring at this stage in your career, it is prudent to understand what is involved, when the time is right. In this presentation by Travis Austerberry from business management firm, MGR Accountants, Travis will outline the things you will need to do when you sell, close or transfer ownership of your business. He will discuss:

Succession in Australia
- Statistics on various age groups, types of businesses and family v independent
Reasons for Succession
- Forced or chosen, stage of life and work-life balance
What Makes Succession Successful?
- How do you measure, how do you know when it’s been successful and intangibles

The Process of Succession

- Maximising and protecting business value
- Transfer (internally/externally)
- Effect on the business continuity

- Lifestyle choices
