Innovative New Tax  Product - Peace Of Mind For Business Owners
 
The Perfect Portfolio is a boutique financial institution that develops unique financial products to assist their clients in attaining and protecting their wealth.Most financial institutions are driven by ‘selling debt’ as opposed to wealth creation.We have dedicated ourselves to assisting our clients manage their finances wisely.We understand that it takes hard work, commitment and sometimes even a measure of luck to earn money.It is with this in mind that The Perfect Portfolio has developed with our partners two distinctly different yet unique financial products that we believe will enhance the portfolios of our clients.

Francise activator™
Now for the first time in South Africa there is a range of financial products that have been designed specifically for franchisors and franchisees alike.After much research, The Perfect Portfolio in conjunction with Discovery is proud to launch The Franchise Activator which is made up of carefully selected financial products that will assist our clients not only to manage their risk, but create wealth at the same time.

The problem
In the case of death or becoming disabled, does the franchisee’s beneficiary have the specialist   knowledge required to continue with the business?
Does the franchisee’s beneficiary have the will and drive to grow the business?
Will a forced sale lead to a below market related price for the beneficiary?
Is it possible that an outside party will come in and take over the business?
Will the brand of the franchise be protected during this uncertainty?
What will the impact be on the franchisor’s cash flow if a buy back agreement is in place?

The solution
•the franchisor and the franchisee agree that, in the event of you dying or becoming disabled, the franchisor will buy the deceased or disabled franchisor’s franchise at a pre-determined price.
•the repurchase of the franchise by the franchisor through a correctly structured life insurance policy.
•life assurance is a cost-effective and practical way to fund the arrangement.

The benefit
•the franchisee’s estate will receive an immediate payout for the value of the business.
•the value is pre-determined and agreed upon by the franchisor and the franchisee.
•the franchisor will avoid the negative impact that the repurchase will have on its cash flow.
