Starting your business in Australia

Congratulations! Apparently, this is a moment when you are thinking about organizing your own business in Australia.

You have already chosen the form of ownership, now let’s investigate what you have to cover in your creative process to make a legal business activity.

In Australia, almost every aspect of business today is regulated in one form or another. In establishing a new business or making changes to an existing business, the business operator will likely need to do some or all of the following:

  • Formulate a business plan in order to obtain finance,
  • Obtain an Australian Business Number (ABN) from the Australian Taxation Office
  • Register for GST
  • Register a business name
  • Select business premises
  • Comply with town planning requirements
  • Comply with environmental protection obligations
  • Obtain any necessary government licences or permits
  • Create your on-brand, for example, logo and letterhead
  • Employ and train staff
  • Pay staff in accordance with State and Federal employment legislation
  • Comply with union awards or workplace agreements
  • Arrange workers’ compensation for employees
  • Comply with superannuation legislation
  • Comply with health regulations and workplace health and safety requirements
  • Take out appropriate insurance
  • Keep records up to date for taxation purposes, as well as for internal management and securing external funds
  • File Business Activity Statements with the ATO
  • Comply with other taxation requirements, including, where applicable, stamp duty, land tax, and payroll tax
  • Establish and maintain systems for quality control of the goods or services sold so that their sale does not contravene legislation such as the Competition and Consumer Act or the various State and Territory Sales of Goods Acts
  • Ensure that any advertising or promotion of a good or service old cannot be taken to be misleading or deceptive
  • Protect the intellectual property of the business by, for example, registering a trademark or design, or applying for a patent
