It has become increasingly common for corporate groups to hold their trade marks and other intellectual property within a dedicated, non-trading entity.

While this may assist with asset protection, it can lead to concerns about whether use of the trade mark by another member of the group is "authorised". The recent Full Federal Court decision of Trident Seafoods Corp v Trident Foods Pty Ltd examined this issue in the context of a trade mark that was used by the parent but owned by a subsidiary.

Now that we are well into August, it is crucial for franchisors to be aware that there are just three months remaining before the deadline for franchise disclosure documents to be finalised (31 October 2019).  Franchisors should similarly note that there are now only 2 months left to get your vote organised and finalised in relation to the auditing of your marketing fund, if you have one.

If you are an Australian franchisor with operations based on the usual financial year (ending 30 June), now is the ideal time for you to look at organising a timeline for these necessary tasks.

With this in mind, Holman Webb has compiled a 10-step guide to compliance, which we encourage all franchisors to follow.
