    Self empolyeed will also need an ABN number (Australian Business Number)....would also suggest that you seek advice from an CHARTERED accountant and not a tax agent or bookeeper.

     

    Would also need Public Liability insurance which is more costly than the UK

    Will need to do a course to get builders licence. master builders do one over two weekends or one night a week for 10 weeks HIA also do the courses. After you pass the course you can apply to OCBA for your licence can take a while to get it 3-4 months all up.

    Constructions workers in Australia, to be effective enough, took the white card online test to qualify for the quality of work. I guess on should research about certification to respective countries. ^_^
