Business Foundations delivers free
business advisory services across the
Perth Metropolitan area.


Business Local is a service designed to help businesses at all stages get the support and advice they need to grow and thrive.

If you need a hand navigating the maze of paperwork and regulation — or want advice on taking your business to the next level — our Business Local Metro service can help.


Over the past 20 years, we have helped thousands of businesses start, develop and grow. Our team of dedicated business experts help entrepreneurs assess their business ideas, develop a plan, get the right licences and permits, understand how to find their first customers and build their expertise once they are established.

The business owners we help are looking for the right advice, right when they need it — without the expense.

We can help you too, with advice on tackling the dozens of little things business owners face each day, from bookkeeping to employing to compliance to finding office space.

You don't have
to do the heavy lifting alone


Every business — and every business owner — is different. But the problems they face can sometimes be the same.

Business Foundations has spent more than 20 years helping individual owners and businesses tackle many common challenges, from regulatory issues to problems with customers, from finding the right supplier to negotiating contracts.

Our advisors start by listening to you and what you need, then draw on their experience to help you find the best solution for your circumstance.

One-on-one advice is ideal when …

  • You have a specific challenge or problem you want to resolve

  • You want to sound out an independent person for advice

  • You need to develop a strategy for how to act next

  • You would like a professional perspective on your business.

Any Western Australian business owner can book a time with one of our experienced advisers for a free one-on-one consultation.
