New Horizons Program

This program is called ‘New Horizons’ because it identifies new horizons of business opportunity in Australia for overseas investors, especially business migrants looking to make safe and profitable investments.

The emphasis is on regional Australia, because that’s where some great investment opportunities lie. Most of them are not on anyone’s radar, and they need some nurturing and polishing. That’s where we come in.

And Australia’s recent signing of Free Trade Agreements with China, Japan and South Korea provide a huge opportunity to introduce international investors and global supply chains into regional Australia.

Our offer

We want to assist international investors – corporate, SMEs, business migrants – to find quality investments and business opportunities in Australia’s regions.

To this end, our offer is to:

 Prepare a two-page ‘Regional Business Opportunity’ (RBO) document that accurately articulates the key features of the project for potential overseas investors, especially business migrants.

 Package the project for potential overseas investors, emphasising its best practice elements and its regional, industry, employment, trade or strategic significance.

 Identify and explain how government grants, subsidies, tax benefits etc. might apply.

 Transmit the RBO and supporting documents (a business plan or a project brief) to potential overseas investors.

 Transmit the RBO to agencies whose functions may impact on the sale of the project (e.g. State Migration Office, Australian Department of Immigration & Border Control, the local council) and act as advocates through our extensive professional network.

 Display the RBO on the Cockatoo Consulting website, giving visibility to members in 33 countries.

 Actively engage our extensive network of local and international members to bring the listing before qualified potential investors.

 Provide expert legal advice regarding investments in Australia and business visas.

 Assist as appropriate in relaying advice on due diligence, financial reports, migration law etc. and other matters pertinent to all parties.

 Provide a monthly progress report to the client.

Our fee

There is a registration fee for each project of $1,000 – plus a very competitive success fee individualised to the particular opportunity and confirmed in a user-friendly but unambiguous contract.
