The initial investment depends on the location that interests you and the likely costs of fitout of your premises. The potential return will also depend on whether you can fund the business yourself or whether you will need finance.
Your initial investment will consist of the Initial Franchise Fee, Induction Training Program and Initial Marketing fund. A number of items, such as office equipment and motor vehicles can be leased to reduce your initial investment.
Other items to consider will be for field supplies for your carers, office Fitout, signage, IT software, phones, internet connection, marketing material, cost of licence acquisition and insurance pre-payments.
Additionally, you may have to fund rent in advance and deposit a rental bond. You will also need to factor in the costs of obtaining legal, accounting or business advice, costs of setting up a company, the costs of drawing up the legal documentation and the amount of working capital required while the business gets to a break-even situation.
A complete breakdown of these costs will be made available at a later stage of the enquiry process. However, we estimate the total investment including all the above to be between $160,000 and $240,000, assuming you will be leasing vehicles and equipment.
