Is someone from overseas investing in your business?

The Australian Foreign Investment Review Board (FIRB) is a non-statutory body set up to monitor foreign investments in Australia. More information about how FIRB operates can be found on their website (https://firb.gov.au/).
If overseas investors are involved in your business, you may need to lodge an application with FIRB before the investment can proceed. This can be a complicated process, so it’s best to get a lawyer’s advice on whether an application to FIRB is necessary for your business’ particular situation.
As part of this package, our lawyers will make an assessment on whether an application to FIRB is necessary for your business, based on the details you provide about the relevant transaction.
Our lawyers will conduct a review of the information you provide us that is relevant to a transaction that may be subject to FIRB approval. They will provide you with written advice setting out their assessment on whether an application to FIRB is necessary.
You will also receive phone consultations (up to 30 minutes) with the lawyer who is undertaking this assessment. They will take your instructions, advise you on the legal issues you need to know and answer your questions about the advice.
This package starts at $690 + GST.
