6.2 Key Elements of an Owner-Driver Scheme



There are certain elements typically required for a successful Owner-Driver Scheme:

Sponsoring Corporate - provides the business.
Owner-Drivers - supply service
Owner-Driver responsibility in respect of the retention and development of the business.
Finance House.
Business Advisor (incorporating bookkeeper)


A Business Advisor should be an independent party and must be paid a fee, agreed by all parties, which is part of the fixed cost of an Owner-Driver's structure. While the accounting function is essential, Business Advisor's must have specific transportation and vehicle management skills.
