Over the years I've been offered many franchise opportunities and nothing has tempted me until now. In late 2015 Moo Music UK had appointed me as a consultant to assist them with their Australian expansion plans. What started out as a professional assignment, ended in a love affair.

Annual Disclosure Document update
If you have not already updated your 2011 Disclosure Document and your  financial year end was 30 June you are in breach of the Franchising code of Australia. Under section 6 of the Code, franchisors must update their whole Disclosure Document within 4 months of the end of the financial year, which for most franchise systems is 31 October 2011.
