      Thanks,

      Easy. just go online and get your Tax File number. This will be sent to you ( takes between 7 - 14 days to arrive ) Once you have that then go back online and get an instant ABN number. Thats it.

      gosh easy as that... I guess the tricky stuff comes when you do your tax return! x

      I have two busineses and did not need to do a course, maybe only needed if your business needs a licence.:)

      I have an ABN, and am just about to start uo my own business and no course for me to go on, as long as you keep track of what your earning and keep all your receipts etc etc then you should be cool. ;)

      We have our own company, and didnt need licences or anything like that, it was very easy, as for the tax returns etc thats down to having a decent Accountant! Can recommend ours to anyone looking for one, extreamly helpful!!

      Hi,
      here are a couple of websites that will be useful for anyone thinking of starting a new business, they give lots of info and are useful as a reference, if you are going to set up a business that is more than a "one man band" I would recommend a good accountant or bussiness advisor, at first things look so similar to the UK but there are lots of small differences that can catch you out if your not careful.
