Starting A Company in Oz ?????

Recommended Posts

Guest James.S

Hi, i was just wondering if anyone out there in the land of PIO, has got any useful informatin regarding starting a business in Oz... what's involved / required?

 

I am very soon to be in NSW under the 175 as an electrician, i have in the UK a company doing design and build projects, extensions, conversions and other general building works.. I would like to put together the same sort of thing over there as becoming a self employed electrician is looking quite drawn out!

 

Any advice most welcome... :hug:

Have a look here it will help guide you through the process: business.gov.au home page


If you are depressed you are living in the past. If you are anxious you are living in the future. If you are at peace you are living in the present.

The use of a family trust with a corporate trustee is commonplace in Australia, even with small businesses, in a way that is not found in the UK.

 

=> Don't simply dive in and set up an Australian company with all shares owned by you, or even owned by you and a spouse/partner. Consider discussing your plans with an accountant who knows about Australian business and tax issues. An hour or two of the accountant's time ought to be money well spent.

 

Best regards.

Thanks a lot for that, i will definately source a good accountant, i know how to structure a company in this country in side out, but just from my initial looking into the different structures in Oz, the different choices are all quite daunting...

Will subscribe to this thread as well. The Small Business Development offer great courses for startups. FOr me it is the first 6-12 months that follow that is a challenge- i.e building trusted business relationships across culture differences. Seeking the path of least resistance, I try to find out about business networks in Perth.
