Getting Set Up

In keeping with a high industry standard, Omera Partners recommends you set up a company with an Australian Company Number (ACN), rather than working as a sole trader with an Australian Business Number (ABN).

The benefits of having your own company as an interim executive include:

  • Personal control over invoices and superannuation payments
  • It is easier to work with multiple clients
  • A more professional look
  • Insurance coverage, including personal indemnity, public liability and workers compensation, can be quickly set up once a contract is secured
  • As an interim executive subcontracted through us, Omera Partners will be responsible for payroll tax

It’s important to select the right option for you, we strongly advise you talk to a qualified financial advisor and consider your individual circumstances. We have provided general information and links without commercial interest with the providers concerned.

See the ATO for what is required or ASIC for a step-by-step guide to registering a company.

For assistance, consider Page Harrison & Co. or Lawpath.

For information on workers compensation, check with your state:

When appointing interim executives, Omera Partners requires our candidates have professional indemnity ($1 million coverage) and public liability insurance ($2 million coverage)*.

Many insurance providers can help you with small business insurance, including BizCover.

* When we engage you through your own company, we are effectively subcontracting the work to that entity and request that your company has adequate professional indemnity, public liability and Workers Comp insurance in place that mirrors Omera Partners’ with the client.

Calculating a day rate is a combination of art and science. Many formulas are used however this is our recommendation.

Recommended day rate = (Estimated equivalent annual remuneration ÷ 220) + 20%

Secured Your Own Assignment?

Omera Partners offers contract management for your self-sourced assignments.

Many interim executives source their own assignments and are either required to be managed by a third party or choose the convenience of having someone else handle all of the administration, payments and compliance.

We offer a cost-effective PAYG contract management service, including:

  • Assuming the financial risk for the contract
  • Independent vetting and reference checking
  • Establishment of all legal contracts
  • Responsibility for all tax and compliance
  • Insurance coverage (workers compensation, public liability and personal indemnity)
  • A regular payment cycle
  • Simple administration fees
  • Access to our support staff
  • The ability to work with Commonwealth and State Governments through our panel status

Joint Venture and Assignment Sharing

Through Omera Partners, you could have access to an extensive global network of opportunities, resources and support.

Contact Us

Contracting directly with Government and large companies can be impossible without working through an accredited ‘panel provider’. We can support you in sourcing and managing your own work in two ways:

  • Providing you with the details of the panels we work through to support your own business development activities to provide a pathway to work and overcome an objection.
  • Onboarding and contract support once you have secured a position through our contract management service.

Contact us about our procurement frameworks.

Many clients expect to see a track record of success or multimillion dollar levels of insurance cover when screening for new interim executives; this can be daunting as an independent.

With support from Omera Partners, we can coordinate a joint pitch, leveraging our years of experience, established processes and track record in numerous sectors. Working together, we can dramatically increase your chances of success and provide a mechanism for you to deliver the work.

Contact us before a pitch or interview to see how our track record can help you.

While on an interim assignment, you may find yourself needing to bring in additional support or subject matter expertise that sits outside your own networks.

We can partner with you to provide the interim resources you need from our own talent pool, sourcing independent experts to support your delivery.

The provision of these resources can be made on commercial joint venture terms.

Contact us about additional talent resources to help you deliver for your client.

If you’ve been contact directly about an opportunity that’s not right for you or your network, we can discuss partnering on a joint venture basis to deliver a shortlist together.

Contact us about sharing a gig with Omera Partners.

We know there are often situations where you are aware of an opportunity but it’s either inappropriate to make the call yourself or you feel a third-party approach provides more confidentiality and assurance.

Let Omera Partners make the call for you — we may also have additional information, established networks or a track record in that organisation to leverage and strengthen your pitch.

Contact us about third-party assistance.
