There is a considerable amount of Franchise material available under ACCC’s ‘Franchise Code of Conduct’ web site.
The Franchisee manual contains good advice for all dealers, who should read it thoroughly. The Griffith University on-line education program, sponsored by ACCC (it’s free) is definitely worth completing. Greg Nathan’s comments are valuable for those with existing franchises.
