Bring Your Own Business

In May 2021, we’re excited to announce the launch of Bring Your Own Business. This feature aims to streamline the process through which our customers use Lawpath for their legals, by allowing you to integrate your business’s details. You will be able to view important details such as your business numbers (ACN and ABN), shareholder breakdown and registration status. This release will further integrate your business’s administration requirements with the Lawpath platform.

Document Management

Our comprehensive contract management system is the legal vault for all your document and business information. Bring Your Own Business will be your one stop shop for managing your company. This will allow you to view a real time company dashboard and access a contract management system tailored to the needs of your business.

Company Dashboard

Accessing all your company details can be hard, especially when you need to access them at a moment’s notice. Our new Company Dashboard is a simple and clear way to see your company’s details in real time. This dashboard includes:

  • Your legal company name, ACN and also ABN
  • GST and also PAYG status

Soon, you’ll also be able to see officeholder names, shareholder names and the percentage breakdown of share ownerships in the dashboard.

Accessing your company dashboard

Bring Your Own Business is free and available for all Lawpath users, but for a limited time only. Here’s how to access your personalised company dashboard:

Other document updates

Laws change frequently and we’re constantly updating our documents to ensure they comply with current laws. We’ve subsequently adjusted some of our employment agreements to suit legislative changes made by the Australian government up to May 2021. The documents we’ve updated are:

  • Employment Agreement (Casual) – in accordance with changes to casual employment under the Fair Work Act 2009 (Cth)
  • Letter of Casual Conversion to Part-Time or Full-Time Employment
  • Letter Notifying Casual employee that Employer Will Not Make an Offer of Conversion
  • Fixed Term Employment Agreement
  • Shareholder Agreement – now includes Drag and Tag Clauses, Fair Market Value, Pre- emptive rights, First right of refusal
  • End of JobKeeper Notification Letter (Non legacy)

You can find these and our other documents here.

Webinar Hub

In addition to our demos, we’re also now launching a recurring series of webinars which will commence in June. These webinars will cover the Lawpath platform generally, the Victorian Government’s Small Business Digital Adaptation Program and how to prepare your business for the End of Financial Year.
