Accountants focus on franchise issues

The imminent enactment of the Fair Work Act amendments put the spotlight on payroll and accounting across the franchise sector.

So it’s no surprise that the Franchise Accountants Network’s annual conference will this year be addressing this and other front-of-mind issues.

Kate Carnell, Federal Small Business Ombudsman, heads up the speaker line-up, and will share insights into the organisation’s take on penalty rates, safe harbour protection on pay, unfair contracts and casual mall licensing.

Input from CFOs from Foodco and PIzza Hut, and Franchise Relationships’ Greg Nathan will bring a retail and franchise perspective.

The FAN Conference is in Sydney on 3 November.
